Who should read this book?

Whether you're completely new to web design, a seasoned pro looking for inspiration, or a developer wanting to improve your sites' aesthetics, there's something for everyone here.

How? Because instead of trying to cover every possible area of creating a web site, we've focused purely on the design stage; that is, everything that happens before a single line of code is written.

However, great design is more than just aesthetics. Long before we open our graphics program of choice, we'll be conducting research, dealing with clients, responding to briefs, sketching out sitemaps, planning information architecture, moving from doodles to diagrams, exploring different ways of interactivity, and building upon design traditions.

But ultimately, you'll be finding out how to create web sites that look drop-dead gorgeous.

Synopsis:

Designing usable and aesthetically pleasing interfaces is crucial to the success of any application on today's Web.

The book answers critical questions such as: What makes a web site work What makes a web site look good What makes a web site easy to use

The book covers the process of web site design from the discovery phase all the way through production and the development of style guides.

Through the process, Jina walks readers, step-by-step through creating a functional web site by applying timeless principles of user-centered design.
