So last week a big box arrived in the office. I opened it up, and lo and behold, I was looking at several copies of Web Design: Studios 2, by German-based publisher Taschen. I tore through the book ’til I found this:
Admittedly it really wasn’t a surprise because I knew it was coming. But it’s still pretty cool!
Taschen is an amazing publisher that focuses on the creative arts including architecture, style, design, and photography. They have a range of books highlighting the best websites and we have all of them in the office. They are a great source of inspiration.
What makes this special is that this is not one of those “pay and you’re in” books. They select you, they think your work is good, your work is featured. While we don’t do what we do for the recognition, every now and then it’s nice to know an independent observer thinks we do good work.
I’m looking through the book now and I see the other studios that are in there and I almost can’t believe we’re part of that group. I know we do good work, but to see our esteemed company sort of freaks me out a little bit!
So pop on by the Plank office and take a look, or pick one up yourself.
