There’s obviously been a ton of talk lately about the rapidly changing face of the web, from new technology supported by recent versions of web browsers, to the evolution of devices that are changing the way that people interact with the web altogether. Of course web technology and internet browsing have been evolving since day one and I’m sure the evolution will only continue to pick up speed. As web designers we are constantly forced to deal with and to design around seemingly infinite limitations. Now more than ever, it’s important for us to remember that more of those limitations are disappearing every day. Technology is quickly closing the artistic gap between web and the rest of the design world. When you consider just the typography, layout and interactive capabilities that have come around the corner recently with HTML5, CSS3, web fonts, etc. it seems like the web, more than ever before, truly is on the verge of something really exciting. Tools like these will allow us as web designers to make the considerations we need to make in our work without sacrificing design. It’s only a matter of time before this technology is mainstream enough for us to use in any way we see fit (I currently blame IE for the hold up). In my opinion, it’s a really exciting time to be a web designer.
