Many developments in computer science have nothing to do with the capabilities of computers, but with the way we use them.
A few years ago, an article on Airbag Industries1 inspired me to think about writing a blog with a unique design per post.
There are many benefits:
- It encourages creativity both at the computer and away from it
- It’s like a code kata for design
- You can easily experiment with cutting-edge CSS3 features or just learn CSS2
- You’ll learn how to build a style foundation for other designs in other applications
On the downside, it takes more time than simply writing prose.
This is great - totally understand about the homogenization of website content. I struggle with this all of the time with our sites and our client sites - it simply takes time (and costs more money) to make custom pages each time.
This is an inspiration on how to do it properly.
