After posting about “How to destroy the web2.0 look” I had the pleasure to speak Elliot Jay Stocks, the guy who told us about “Destroy the web2.o look” at the Future of Web Design event held in NY. Elliot answered some questions about the controversial topic. He also told us how he avoids clichés and where his inspiration comes from, among other interesting matters. One thing is for sure: a big part of his success comes from the fact he’s always in the quest for inspiration out of the monitor and has great attitude to learn and collaborate.
Elliot Jay Stocks is a senior Designer at Carson Systems, a regular writer for industry-leading publications such as .net, a speaker at conferences and events (in his last one he told us to “destroy the Web 2.0 look”), and also a copious blogger at his own blog and at Carsonified.
He gave an interview to this blog that will be published next Friday Dec 7th, where he will answer questions like: how does he avoid cliches? How should we “educate” our clients? What is his design process like?
Meanwhile, I leave you with some of Elliot’s portfolio, which is very prolific and varied. You can see gorgeous works for big names like the Pet Shop Boys and Massive Attack on his portfolio. I find them very inspiring because of the richness in texture and detail. I hope you enjoy them and stay tuned for the interview next friday.
