Rather than fidget about and fill his blog with daily bits of inane banter, Jason opts for the semi-regular big-impact article format. And while his entries might be infrequent, he graces each one with a fresh layout, characterized by large fonts, diverse color schemes, compelling artwork, and slippery columns. By varying his layouts, Jason brings the flexibility of magazine design to the rigid world of web publishing. And the result is like fire and ice.
In the web design world, I believe there are (3) main categories of designers. The first is shitty designers. And obviously Jason isn’t one of those. The second is designers who have a good sense of grid and type. Jason is definitely one of those. The third category is designers who use lots of photography and fine art, but lack some of the mathematical intuition involved in solid grid and type work. Jason manages to take the best of the latter categories, while dispensing with any shortcomings.
Jason is that rare designer who combines a mathematical sense of grid and type, with the creative sensibilities of a fine artist. And what a combination it is.
