DF response to JT

John Gruber of Daring Fireball responds to Joe Trotter’s view on WordPress. Joe didn’t like the design of WordPress’ default templates and John adds his take on design:

Designing is thinking, and if you care about design, every detail — the layout, the colors, the markup, the URL structure — deserves to be thought about.

Default templates are terrific for people who can’t or don’t want to design their own — but they’re terrible starting points for anyone attempting to establish their own unique brand. If you start with nothing, you’re forced to think about everything.

Sigh.. if only Dad had allowed me to go to design school..
