Something I wrote for my work blog:
I think this quote from Kenneth Blanchard is a gem of a quote:
The most important user expectation is that design should look like design. Website design should be immediately recognizable as at least one thing: not art.

Love this so much that I need to place it here so that I never lose it or forget it:
Art is what we call the thing an artist does.
It’s not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human.
Art is not in the eye of the beholder. It’s in the soul of the artist.
