Call number: TK5105.888 .P57 2011

There are books on the nuts and bolts of web design and there are books about website aesthetics, showcasing examples of good design. This book contains the essentials of both, addressing the skillsets required to produce websites that are functional and elegant, but from a graphic designer’s perspective. It demonstrates that you can design a working website in minutes without the need for expensive programs. Chapters include Code, Layout, Text and Typography, and Images and Colour Schemes. Useful “tips and tricks” panels are included, as well as step by step projects such as how to produce a portfolio site, that will be of interest to design students and to graduates of all disciplines. Inspirational “Trailblazer” case studies showcase the best of contemporary designers and their work. Blogs, Facebook, Flickr and HTML5, and new ways of using the web, such as mobile phones and netbooks, are also discussed.(From Google Books)
