More Than Words

Gillian Roach

Roach, G. (2002). More Than Words. Create Online. Issue 27, July. pp48-51

On industry demands for employing designers:
“Well, you can’t be good at everything. You might be a great programmer but that doesn’t necessarily mean you know anything about the craft of typography. It’s quite an involved area and is heavily based around traditional graphic design, whereas Web design is heavily technology-based. The two are very different – just because you’re good at one doesn’t necessarily mean you’re good at the other.” (Jonathan Barnbrook quoted p50)

Jonathan Barnbrook's name as a graphic designer came up within my research. I located this quote from Create magazine whilst looking for something else. I never actually found a use for it in my paper.
