For those of you who have known me for a while you’ve no doubt heard me on my soapbox lecturing about the distinction between art and design.

Andy Rutledge has written a nice piece over on A List Apart titled On Creativity. He does a great job at teasing out some of the same issues as he challenges and defines creativity. Great piece of work Andy!
