Web Design for Developers – Book Review

February 18, 2010


This book’s title does not do it justice – it’s also a great book for intermediate web designers (just out of web design diapers) who want to take it a few steps further.

The book revolves around the redesign of a pretty bland looking web site. You are walked through the whole design process:

  • sketching out the design/layout ideas.
  • interacting with the clients.
  • how to choose colors and fonts for the web site.
  • designing a logo!

Then you get into the coding (HTML, CSS) aspects of the web design process:

  • Why develop with Firefox vs Internet Explorer?
  • Basics of CSS and handling specific CSS tasks.
  • Dealing with browser compatibility issues.
  • Accessibility and usability.

… And a lot more of course.

If you are a web developer or web designer who wants to learn how to put it all together, this book does a pretty good job walking you through the process.
