Webuquerque in February ‘10

The Difference Between Print & Web Design

This event has passed. However, the recap is available!

While the basic principles of design — form, color, hierarchy, contrast, texture, etc. — apply equally on-screen as they do in print, it is a huge mistake to think that designing for the Web requires the same skillset as doing so for paper. Each medium comes with its own unique set of properties, challenges and constraints, and it's important to understand the differences between the two.

Experienced in both, Ben Byrne will discuss many of the things that set print and web design apart, including:

About Our Speaker

Ben Byrne

Ben Byrne

Ben has a BFA in Graphic Design from Iowa State and has been designing professionally for nearly 13 years. Currently, he is a senior front-end designer for New Signature, where his extensive experience with languages such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript is put to good use implementing his designs on a variety of CMS platforms.

Prior to joining New Signature, Ben worked as the lead graphic designer and web developer for Firefly Partners. Before that he was at Free Press, where he rolled his own CMS in addition to designing countless brands, brochures and websites (one of which garnered a "People's Choice" Webby award).

Ben can be found on the usual online haunts (Facebook, Twitter, his blog), though his ramblings there have at least as much to do with sports, politics and being a dad as they do with his professional life. He presented on the difference between print and web design for Webuquerque in 2010, which he likes to think was generally well-received.
