I am not a graphic designer. One look at the current state of this blog should tell anyone that. But when I have to explain to non-techies what it is I do all day (and many evenings), it’s not unusual for them to walk away with the idea that I’m a “web designer.” Perhaps they’re right, if you take that in its broad sense to mean designing how certain things work on the web.
Whatever the semantics, I was pleased to see A List Apart taking the initiative to learn a little bit more about this industry in which many of us not only work, but seem to live a good chunk of our lives. If you’re reading this, you probably ought to complete the survey. Find it here.
