This guy does everything I want to do and say way better than I can.
really, i see this kind of stuff and i don't even feel creative.
then i realize I don't really even know how to build a website that looks like this. :|
limited by tools, ideas, and creativity... yet its what i'm trying to "do".
I think more often than design, he can write about certain things that I think about often in a way that I can never articulate. Its especially frustrating to see it done in a way that comes off as effortless.
I think it may seem effortless but often there's years of unnoticed handwork behind anything great.
I agree, he is both an excellent writer, and designer. However Reading the interview that he did with TGD I can see so much in common with him and my best friend. My best friend is quiet and reserved, doesn't say much, but when he does it is thought through and important.
I shoot my mouth off without thought, and create a lot of half baked crap. I'm told I can not change who I am, but I still strive to think a bit more before I do stuff.
Not much to be said here that he hasn't said himself: http://frankchimero.com/blog/make-it-homely/
Pretty neat. Not a huge fan of the new reading experience, it lacks the same focus as his previous site. On the other hand, I prefer seeing his work like this.
Haha, he changed it, and I think, until now, it's constantly being tweaked.
