I recently browsed through a random web designer’s blog and noticed something that you don’t normally find on a web designer’s blog.  Under the title “Inspiration” were little thumbnails of interior spaces. Interested, I clicked on thumbnails and moved on to a flickr gallery of photos from the interior design expo, Interieur 08.    So, I briefly thought about my own love for interior design and about its significant relationship to graphic design, mainly in regards to forms and proportions.   And these thoughts inspired me to write down some commonalities that different design fields share.  But, in doing so I quickly realized that most commonalities are just the basic principals of design that cover all design fields, whether it’s graphic design, interior design, architecture, industrial design, or any other  _____  design.

Tables no more!

To my surprise, I still notice a lot of web designers use tables. That is a big No No. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) should be used at any cost. Here is why:

  1. Table design offers no control over your website. If you wanted to change a parameter such as the color of a link, you would have to do so in each page of the website. That is a huge waste of time. With CSS, one change, one time. And it will reflect through the entire website.
  2. Tables slow down the loading time of your website. CSS design is very light and therefore loads much faster.
  3. The new browsers focus more and more on the use of CSS, and so make this a priority for compatibility. So you website will be more likely to display correctly if you use the newest technology, which is CSS.
  4. Search engine results are also affected by CSS since you can position specific elements to load before others, such as the navigation.

So there you have it, focus on CSS and your website will benefit in many ways!

While it’s true that competition does tend to bring out the best in all of us, it also serves as a divider in matters that matter – like the standardization of the designs of applications that are used for a common purpose. Some apps are undergoing a sea of change and conforming to popular demand, the USB port being one of them – not only does it remain the same on all computer systems, gadgets are also being built using them as charging and data transfer ports.
