There has been always tension between print and web design for as long as I've been on the web side of things (14 years and counting). A portion of this tension is derived from the web's less than optimal ability to control positioning and typography. Trying to get that amazing illustration to line up perfectly with that sizzling headline was a nightmare in not only HTML/CSS standards and browser compatibility, but page size. Then factor in connection speeds and monitor sizes and what you were left with is some less than spectacular. I still believe in keeping things lean and functional, but after working on the launch of my agency's website and looking through these 25 Inspiring Web Designs on Webdesign Tuts+, I believe we have finally turned the corner. It's finally the best of both worlds.
