    I disagree (but upvoted because you made a worthwhile contribution, that's how it works).

    Senior/Experienced programmers are a specific type of programmer that you can hire for. You get much more experience and knowledge compared to a young graduate programmer, but they cost more. It's a tradeoff.

    I think the same will be true of the design industry (if it isn't already). Knowing how much I've grown in the last 5 years (let alone the next 10-20 years) points me to the fact that "Senior Designers" are very plausible, just as "Senior Programmers" are.

    Obviously a different industry but Hayao Miyazaki is a great example of a "creative" person whose age has done nothing but increase their ability to create new things.

    Wow. When these types of websites can run at 60fps on almost all devices (my macbook pro struggled a bit with this one) the web is going to become so incredible to consume. That dog animation/transition is such fantastic.

    That's an interesting point. If you work in a small startup where time/money is a limiting factor, you simply don't have the option to run A/B tests to validate your opinion. In those circumstances, you need to hire good designers who will make good design decisions (which is also not cheap). In lieu of resources, someone needs to make a 'call' on these things.

    There generally is a "best" way of doing things but a lot of the time, constraints make it impossible to achieve.

    I think A.N. has a point where a good designer will 'know' which design is better out of 2 possible options.

    For a second I thought it was great web design for the Kirby vacuum cleaner which I would have been totally ready for.

    The small shapes look like sweat drops, not conversation bubbles. Which is how you feel when you get back to your desk with 50+ unread :D
