Product Description

Synopsis

As all web designers know, colour is a crucial ingredient in any website. From the very basic level of attracting potential 'surfers' to stop and take a look at a site, to the more complex navigational requirements, colour use can make or break a website. This title will examine in-depth the difference in value between colour on screen and print-based material. Through outstanding examples of good colour use in websites - both high-budget and low-budget sites - this book provides the reader with what's current, as well as looking to the future. A must for students and practising designers, and an extremely useful reference tool for those who commission web design

Format: Hardcover
As a technical person I found the book inspiring, but lacking in implementation detail.
There is information about the additive colour wheel which is great, and I've created some excellent colour schemes using it. But where all the web-colours fit is left to the reader to work out.
Similarly, there's a page on lustre, iridescence and luminoscity which look great, but I can't work out how to implement them from the information provided.
I did learn a lot from this book and my designs and pages will be, I'm sure, much improved. I'm also confident talking about colour now. But I just know there's so much more to learn about the subject, and at the price I expected something more.

I'm an experienced web designer and, if you are too, then don't bother with this book. This book is devoid of new and practically useful advice. "Designing Web Graphics 2" had all of this years ago, there is nothing really useful here, and little in the way of useful colour combinations as I hoped that there might be. For a more interesting exploration of the concepts this book touches on, buy the Edward R Tufte books.
I'm afraid this is a wishy washy book, little information, and little of that of great interest (at least, not to someone who has been in the game a while).Lots of blown up colour palette pics, definitions of things like luminosity, explanations of hexidecimal colour references etc.
Sorry, if you wrote this book., but I wish I'd read this reference before buying...

HASH(0x964876b4) out of 5 stars i feel sorry for the trees 24 April 2005
By Igor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
... that died for the paper of this book.

The book is filled with lots of pages displaying nothing but colors. Without a comment. Just like that. Thank you Mrs. Holzschlag but i already have these colors on my computer, no need for you to sell them to me in a book. They'll look different on my screen anyway than on paper.

What i want is color psychology, color associations, how to best combine different colors (beyond just naming the typical color schemes - color scheme generator 2 could automatically create that type of generic scheme) , things to consider on the screen other than "use browser-safe colors". These topics are hardly covered in this book. Maybe mentioned, but that's about it.

HASH(0x96d39fe4) out of 5 stars a waste of paper 29 May 2005
By Alejandro Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
With this book I was expecting something more along the lines of color psychology, but it turned out to be 176 pages of common sense. Molly Holzschlag takes the time to teach you the basics of Photoshop without mentioning Photoshop. Unless you know absolutely nothing about digital images, and I stress 'absolutely nothing', then this book would be a complete waste of time for you. Even if that were the case, you're better off with a book on Photoshop.

HASH(0x939f299c) out of 5 stars Great reference for web color and design 22 Aug. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Molly Holzschlag is a good writer and explainer of the whys of web design and code, and this book is a great reference for putting together a web project, the whys of color, what works with what, and why. It's also good for prompting ideas for new clients.
