I definitely recommend this book as a source of inspiration for web designers. great selection of creative design, although a lot of the websites are flash based, which is of less use to html designers. Nevertheless I think it's a good book overall if you want a quick source of design inspiration.

Not Perfect, But Stuffed With Ideas 20 Oct. 2009
By SlowX - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I dig this series.

There are simply a TON of web ideas here in a relatively small, portable package. Some sites are not my taste, and they may not be built properly, but that's not the point: It's a great way to get a taste of what others have done online.

For me, that's great inspiration and fuel for MY designs, whether it's HTML or Flash, built goodly or whatever. This is not a how-to book, but a great collection of what's out there now (at the time of publication, of course). And, heck, if you don't like what's in here, maybe it's a great how-NOT-to book. HA!

The enclosed CD is great too, making it easy to see the sites online (or on a computer screen), and the background-color-based organization means the ideas you get won't be will not be limited by content or purpose.

Very Uninspiring! 24 Jun. 2009
By KMM - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was deciding between this book and The Web Designer's Idea Book. I completely made the wrong decision. I thought bigger and more expensive = better, but that is not the case. The examples presented in this book are very uninspiring, and like another commenter stated, don't follow proper standards (think tables for formatting, no CSS, entire sites built using Flash and requiring Flash 10 to view them). I think the designs in the other book are much more intriguing. The screenshots of the sites in the book and even on the CD are too small and make it difficult to really get a good look at them. I really wish I could get my money back for this book; I am pretty sure within less than a year's time it is going to end up in the trash bin. Don't waste your money. Get the other book.

A Fan 2 Sept. 2008
By Tiffany France - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is great...though sometimes I wonder how they choose the sites they do because many of the site are unattractive or poorly that left me confused. However, the cd included is awesome. The cd shows previews of the site in a very easy to use format. I would buy it just for the cd. :)

How Did These Sites Make The Cut? 8 Jan. 2009
By Brad Simpson - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The web sites in this book are less than inspiring. I don't know what their criteria is for picking sites, but the bar must be pretty low. There are only a handful of sites in the book that I actually visited to get a better look at, and most sites look dated or just plain unprofessional. I expect "good" sites to have an attention to detail, good choice of fonts, color scheme, and layout, some integration of modern trends, etc., and 99% of these sites don't make the cut.

Useless 20 Oct. 2008
By S. Chang - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Web Design Index series are very unprofessional. Lots of poor designed sites are in the book. Don't waste your money if you can just go online and google some sites.
