My Web Design Superheroes

January 1, 2007

One of my favorite talks at Refresh 06 was Andy Budd’s, How to be a Web Design Superhero. At the end of the talk, he listed his web design superheroes. I liked the idea. Here is my current list:

  • Jared Spool – Usability and Experience Design
  • Josh Porter – Social Web
  • Andy Budd – CSS
  • Kelly Goto – Web ReDesign Process, Persona
  • Gerry McGovern – Killer Web Content
  • Steve Krug – Usability
  • Kathy Sierra – Creating Passionate Users (Experience Design)
  • Andy Clarke – Transcending CSS (I have only read a chapter of Transcending CSS and it is great). Simon Collison referred to it as “era-defining.” From what I have read I think this is an important book.
