There is so much info on the net but you often have to dig deep to access it. The content is often surrounded with unnecessary and distracting clutter–be it extra words, images, effects or poorly structured navigation.
Data and information is collected at the start of any presentation, can be visualised as a female triangle being produced from a point; Then the designer hacks and structures to take it back to a meaningful concise point–the male triangle. This extracting/refining is what is lacking the most on the net and where the design actually takes on meaning.
In graphic design, nothing is what it actually is. Everything other than content is representative of something else. Additionally, much of the content is also merely representative of something other than what it actually is.
