As web designers we think our skills lie in the code we write or the interfaces we build. In truth that is not where our real value lies and if we don’t grasp that soon we could become obsolete.
What is digital? We hear the word all the time, yet there is no clear definition. We talk about digital strategy, digital revolution, digital transformation and digital design.
