With an increasing array of platforms & resolutions, it's time to embrace the creative capabilities of HTML and make development part of the design process...
While I’ve spent most of my days in the creative department, I actually started my career as a developer. I was 16, and having discovered the WYSIWYG editor in Netscape Navigator Gold, I had taught myself the basics of HTML. I was inexperienced and couldn’t build much, but I did manage to make something that landed me a job building websites. I enjoyed those days working with code, but at night I found myself playing with Photoshop. Design seemed to come more naturally and I eventually moved into the creative department as a Graphic Designer.
