A bunch of interesting articles/essays recently, that led to interesting discussions on the topic of timeless web design. All worth a read if you have any involvement in the wonderful wacky world of ‘design‘ and the web.
First Armin Vit writes an essay asking Landmark Web Sites, Where Art Thou? Essentially he asks why no individual web designs/sites have attained any historical significance worthy of being deemed landmarks that lead the way, such as Paul Rand’s IBM Logo.
Khoi Vin picks up on both and posts Something’s Missing in Web Design . The interesting points he adds are, “the very best designers are leaving behind the work of actually doing design…” and “that Web design is really boring…”
Joshua Porter picks up on Armin’s initial post and posts a response, Do Canonical Web Designs Exist? His point being, “It’s just that canonical design on the web isn’t as glamorous as some want it to be.”
They are all great reads and the ensuing discussions are absolute fun to read.
As to timeless or landmark web designs, there are many for me, most may not exist anymore, but they did leave a mark on me and is that not the point.

There’s some great listening over on this podcast page, from the SXSW this year. Not being able to attend it’s great that one can still listen to the podcasts.
There’s a wealth of information in these podcasts, definitely worth a visit and a listen, at least to the ones that relate to the area you may be working in.
