“For individuals who are neither designers nor artists, it may seem like those who are, use a lot of smoke and mirrors, magically whipping up each stunning creation. Artistic talent and creativity can certainly aid and enhance the final result, but design, in particular, generally follows a process. Each designer ó or design group ó develops a method for solving problems, then evolves that method over time. While no one person or group may view a problem from the same perspective, general similarities often appear in their approach. As I mentioned in a related log entry about my CSS Zen Garden submission, I thought it might be interesting to share the process I went through to create the design I titled Golden Mean.”
