This dog is cool but he’s trying really hard to be cool, which makes him less cool.
This dog is cool because it’s in a pool .
I’ve decided to get super meta about this whole workshop for wordpress and blog about my thinking as I’m thinking and as I’m creating.
I am beginning with two guiding ideas:
- Design choices should be predicated on content.
- Content should be created and/or featured with audience in mind.
Sometimes you already have content when you are starting a website. Sometimes you are starting a website to contain (and help generate) content. Both of these situations, however, require you to ask some questions basic to any communications endeavor:
- What do I want to communicate?
- Who is my audience?
- How do I best communicate my content to my audience?
Now, some quotes:
-William Carlos Williams
-Robert Creeley (also)
