Congrats Khoi. It’s a great list, and beautifully put together, but I wonder how they concluded that each of these individuals are amongst the “top” in the country.
Can you please make a post on BostonGlobe.com new redesign.
Grats Khoi for being an awesome virtual thinker maker!
Khoi Vinh, Frank Gehry, Marc Jacobs…pretty good company…well done!!
Congrats, Mr. Vinh. Who do you think is missing?
Congratulations on the recognition. You can downplay the significance, but it’s still pretty darn cool.
I honestly don’t mean this in a bad way and I love your blog, but what else have you done to deserve such an award? The NYT is a well designed site, but some other news sites are just as well designed. I just don’t understand, what do you think KV?
Anthony: That’s more than a fair question. While I think I’ve done a lot to advance the design profession in my own ways, I’m humbled to be on this list. However, before I completely undercut myself with apparently false modesty, I’d better recuse myself from the answer. Fast Co. assembled this list, and they’re the ones who can explain best.
I’m curious about your thoughts on why the “information” category is relatively unpopulated. Perhaps I misunderstand what it represents, but one would think the Tufte-ian realm would be hopping with today’s overwhelming focus on new and heterogeneous “content channels” and the concurrent drive to communicate information in ever-smaller nuggets.
…..add my congratulations and admiration…….well done. your name wouldn’t be there without some reasons, no matter how subjective it may all be in the end. don’t look back, but don’t tarry too long either. keep up the great work and the accolades will accumulate.
Wow, that’s quite an honor.
KV: That makes sense, I’m sure you deserve it. Do you have some database with your work? I would love to see the projects you have worked on, all I know of is NYT, The Onion, and your book.
The design of Subtraction is actually my favorite, when are you going to break down and sell it as a theme 🙂
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
