3.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant read but some issues. 15 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having read the Graphic Design edition of this series some time ago, I looked forward to this for some time.
Its another great read. Solid amounts of knowledge but in an incredibly approachable way due to the some of the tongue and cheek style writing. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

The only problem I have is that, having read the Graphic Design version i noticed a large amount of it has been copy and pasted. A joke is even made about it one point in a section. Thats fair enough for one section that applies to both areas. But later in the book I noticed more and more parts that were absolute copies of the text from previous book down to the same jokes...

2.0 out of 5 stars Uninformative and full of cheesy 'jokes' 5 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately I am disappointed with this book. After reading and enjoying the Know Your Onions Graphic Design I hoped this would be just as informative. It is essentially nothing but a dummies guide to web design. There is no technical web related info in here and if you are already a designer with some web experience and you have read the first book as mentioned above, this is pretty pointless.
I also don't like the way it's written as it includes lots of cheesy comments and trying to be funny jokes. Dithering around the point which I understood when I read it the first time. It's not written in a very intelligent way and is much more casual than the first book which was borderline annoying itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the original – a great resource 25 Mar 2014
By Claire
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had been eagerly awaiting this book after loving the author's first book Know your Onions Graphic Design.

I wasn't disappointed. Like the first, this book is a great resource for those who are starting out in their web design career or indeed, those who've been doing it for years (like me!) and need a refresher and some new tips.

I did wonder how useful the book was going to be before I read it. The goal posts are forever changing when designing for the internet so I was worried the content would become outdated within a few months... I needn't have worried though as this book concerns itself with the conventions and principles of web design and the processes a designer should go through rather than preaching about what's cool at the moment. In fact, there's nothing 'preachy' about this book, it's a good approachable tone of voice thoughtout. I found the chapters on navigation and colour particularly useful.

I can honestly say that reading this book taught me lots of new tricks, gave me lots of inspiration for ways of approaching future projects and was a really interesting read. It looks fantastic too which for someone who judges a book by their cover is an important thing.

An easy 5 stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, precise, funny 25 Mar 2014
By Bestie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Drew de Soto gets better and better. As funny and as clear as his first book, which I really enjoyed and learnt a lot from, especially being very new to the subject. This book also gives a really good overview and covers a huge range of areas without bogging you down with too much detail. Top book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great overview in designing for the web 8 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback
This book is a great way to ground yourself in web design. The reader is taken through techniques of brainstorming ideas all the way to designing a site and sending it to developers to be built. It's written in a way that is engaging and humorous, as well as being easy to read. There are nice illustrations, not to mention the overall look and feel of the book has a real quality to it.
