How does website design and Architecture mix?

Through passion.

While website design and architecture are two entirely different industries, they have many similarities between them in how an architect or a website designer tackles the problems and finds solutions.

Website Design

My entire time at high school I always wanted to be an architect. I was introduced to architecture through my visual communication teacher in year 7. It seemed like the perfect fit for me, I liked problem solving, and I like art. I spent the next 6 years of my life preparing myself so I could study architecture.

Everything I did in high school was fun in regards to visual communication/design and architecture. Making buildings, learning about the engineering side of things, drawing rough mock ups of futuristic buildings. I loved it all.

I worked so hard to get good grades to get into an architecture course in Melbourne. But guess what? 6 Months in I dropped out. I didn't like it, it was nothing like what I expected. It was devastating. Doing architecture projects in high school and doing it in uni are two completely different worlds. The teachers themselves in high school could not and should not be expected to be able to grade your work the same as an architect.

I was lost, I didn't know what to do, and I had dreams and aspirations like every other young adult. I wanted to get moving with my life, so I jumped into the next thing which I thought I could make some money from, until I figured out what I wanted to to. I joined a quick coarse on how to use adobe suit. Thought I'd make an easy couple hundred per week from doing graphic design work. After the course I was getting odd jobs, here and there in Melbourne doing logo designs/brochures for friends, family and mutual friends. But I thought my designs sort of lacked the woompft, which I saw in other designs. So I enrolled in an Advertising and Graphic design course.

Learning Graphic design at uni, felt like the right step. I found again a passion for something which was on the creative side. Ironically in my second year, I really fell in love with web design. Why is it ironic? Because web design is problem solving and bit of math mixed with art, just like architecture. Did I spend 6 years of my life in high school following the wrong passion, or did I quit architecture too early? I am still not sure. But I do know that while I have worked as a website designer for the last 10 years I have never stopped looking at architecture also.

I now design websites and when I build each page, I look at it like a room. Filling the page with elements that make it an awesome space, while maintaining the core information which is there for a purpose. Each website is unique, it has a unique purpose and a unique design setup by the company branding. With website design we always try to build designs which describe who the company is, what services they offer and what their unique point of sale is in a story format.
