The author really gets it! A Great Primer...,
This review is from: The Principles of Beautiful Web Design (Paperback)
Finally! A Design book that gets right into it, without talking down to the reader or smothering them with useless information that they can't apply in real-world designs.
Jason covers all the fundamentals: layout, color, texture, typography and imagery, without assuming one has an art degree. The references to sites for further reading are helpful, as are the plentiful examples throughout.
The author definitely knows what he's talking about, as the website associated with the book is slick & professional, as is the presentation and layout of the book itself.
