Posted by Jonathan Snook

There's the old saying, "Good artists copy, great artists steal." I still don't know what the difference is but I steal ideas all the time. More and more, I've been looking to architecture for inspiration. Buildings, skyscrapers in particular, share characteristics with the common web page. They're built and designed for a vertical space. As a result, many of the design elements that go into architecture can be quite appropriate for site design. When I did the redesign of Snook.ca a few months back, I had gone through a number of revisions, none of which seemed to hit the mark. To give you some backstory , I'm actually a big fan of the Art Deco style. I love hitting up Miami's South Beach and just soaking it all in.
