The personal website of Chris Coyier

Put it on the homepage!

Why is the client request always:

Can you put this on the homepage for us please?

and not:

We have some new content ready for our website that we would like to feature, what do you suggest?

Typically, we designers are hired in the first place because of our design and user experience expertise. Why does it always seem like, over time, this relationship deteriorates, and that original respect is lost.
