    I'll never understand why this guy is classified as a Web designer. It's so obviously he's an illustrator that codes.

      Why would you say so?

      He designs things for the web, does that not make him a web designer? Also, is he not allowed to be both a web designer and an illustrator?

      As far as his design work goes, I'd say he's simply a designer who spans different mediums. The lines are getting much more blurred these days.

      And although I don't always agree with him, he seems to be one of the foremost thinkers about how to design for the web, so I'd say he's very well qualified for the medium, arguably more than most.
