There are few people I can say who have authored publications that have helped influence my career. Today Joe Gillespie, publisher of Web Page Design for Designers (or more affectionately known as WPDFD), has announced his retirement. This is the final edition of the publication that we will ever see. Thank you, Joe, for eight glorious years of great content. You will be missed. You can read one of the articles Joe wrote for us, Alien Typography, which still remains to be a popular article to this day. [from Lockergnome]

Joe has given us a great gift. I will miss the updates dearly, but the existing works are a treasure.

A clear and pertinent voice, knowledgable in his area, and valuable to all those who came across WPDFD.

Lets home he doesn't shut down or pull the content off WPDFD. I hope he keeps it online like archive for everyone to reference for years to come.
