It's loaded with screenshots, screenshots, and more screenshots In this version, the screenshots are even larger and easier to pick up on detail and text. They've also included "Developer Notes" which I think are pretty insightful and in context. If you are involved in web design in any way even if you're hiring other people to do it , this book will be super handy.
The two editions are the same size and style With the two combined, there must be a thousand organized designs to look through. The amount of work that went into collecting such quality work without "filler" junk is astounding.
I'm really impressed On the negative side: I'd personally prefer these came in large hardback coffee-table books. While maybe not as handy, it certainly would be great to have around the agency. Maybe after the 3rd edition, they should release a combined volume! What a great book. There are lots of 'inspiration' books for graphic and web designers out there.
Most consist of a few great sites. But McNeil makes this flood of layout orderly by breaking sites into categories - first according to basic design principles balance, contrast, document flow and then by site type.
An example of his detail is the entire chapter devoted to "" error pages - this is some serious work on what makes a layout tick. The author also provides advice on how to use the examples, and discussions of larger design trends. If you want to explore the "classic" web 2.
Also, nearly all work when you try the site URL!
My only critique is labeling - some figures are not clearly labeled as being associated with text. It would also be great to have commentary on a larger proportion of the examples, but we'll need to pay the author more IMHO. If you're trying to learn web design, get it! This is not a book you read from cover to cover. Its primary goal isn't to teach you CSS, how to use graphic design software, or how to do web design.
It's a reference book as its title implies. There are tidbits of useful advice scattered about from various industry professionals. The author, however, makes it clear that copying an entire design is tacky and unprofessional. Use this book when you're running low on creative juices. Pick elements you like from multiple designs and mix-and-match to cater to your tastes or for your client. In an effort to build my references library, I added this to my collection. Looking forward to getting the other series.
Good for any front-end developer. I like this book because it is written for designers and from the perspective of a designer. Chapter 2, Basic Design Principles, would be particularly useful, especially for young designers. The chapter guides the reader to many important considerations in developing designs. The rest of the book are examples of good website designs.
Obviously, the selection of examples was based on the principles presented at the start. I miss the color palettes though that was provided in volume one of the book. The book is written on quality paper, and the page images are clear. Some of them are a little small, but they're readable when you consider that they're trying to cram one or two full screens into at best half a page or so. The part I appreciated most was the color palettes at the end of each chapter.
I have no color taste, so it's nice to get a complete list of what's used in a given set of pages.
Good source for ideas if you're trying to lay out a site but you're not quite sure what it should look like yet. So far it's ok. It's not your average textbook in that there are hardly any "professional" terms mentioned. It's more like people in the business' opinion on what they think certain aspects of web design are.
It's really not helping me much at all for my Mobile and Web Design class. I rented the Vol. Not very helpful, although this one is better as far as element descriptions goes. They could do better in my opinion. One person found this helpful. I bought both volumes of this book and I'm impressed. They are both full of unique and beautiful websites. I feel as though the author was reading my mind, picking only the best websites that truly are like interactive works of art. It is the cure to my designer's block!
These books are made to work together and combine into a huge collection of some of the world's most truly awesome-looking websites. One isn't complete without the other, so if you download it, be sure to download volume 1! I love this book. From the second it arrived, I've been pouring through the pages again and again. I'm a web design student; thus, I'm always working on multiple sites at a time. Each time I hit a new design phase for a site, I pick up this book and thumb through it.
I see new ideas every time I open the book. I tag pages with ideas I might like to implement. My book has little tags hanging out of it all over the place. It's nice that ideas are modern and visual.
