Web design is definitely art and as with every form of art there are people who will criticize it. Most web designer's and graphic designer's have some sense of art to begin with. I personally have always loved art and see it everyday in nature and in my surroundings. I consider web design to fall more in the category of digital art. A web designer is faced with the same obstacle’s any conventional artist is only more. Pixel perfect web design takes time and consideration of different browser platforms. Typography is incorporated to blend with the theme of a site. If web design is not art then I don’t know what is.
