Zeldman: “Many young Web designers — and let’s face it, most Web designers are under 30 — view their craft the way I used to view pop culture. It’s cool or it’s crap.

Style is tautological; it communicates stylishness. In visual terms, style is an aspect of design; in commercial terms, style can communicate brand attributes.”
