Readings

A plethora of interesting essays, interviews and other commentary about design, interaction/interface design, experience design, typography and designers can be had for your reading pleasure at the site of Max Bruinsma: freelance critic, editor, lecturer among other things.

I stumbled upon his site awhile ago - may have even written about it, then forgot it. I was doing a search on google this evening and it came up again. Some new editorials have been posted and the link I provided organizes the writings by topic. Some of them are in dutch but most are in english and well worth the time to read.

The editorials are quite interesting and one from Eye magazine, no. 30 vol 8 winter 1998 still seems fresh and relevant to designers - whether they work online or not.

This essay from 1997 is also interesting in that he discusses interaction and navigation and the role of the designer to create clarity from the clutter. In looking at this with the perspective of time, this role now often falls to the IA and interaction or UI designer and not the graphic designer. One has to wonder if the evolution of the web affected the role of design or did design effect the web? Fun screenshots from 97.
