Web Design : The Next Generation (Includes CD Rom)

Web Design : The Next Generation (Includes CD Rom)

by David Carson (Introduction), Daniel Donnelly (Author), Daniel Donnelly (Author), David Carson (Introduction)


This work showcases the most advanced websites from around the world, sites that are inspired because their designers push today's web technology to the limit. Exceptional in terms of colour, typography, imagery or interactivity, websites from both well-known and up-and-coming designers and design firms are presented here, accompanied by descriptions of all the elements involved, including the design process and the special techniques used to create each site. Print designer David Carson provides the introduction on websites and explores the definition of cutting-edge web design. Each of the book's four main sections - "Design Firms", "Commercial Sites", "Self-Promotion" and "Global Sites" - begins with a short essay written and designed by highly acclaimed print and web designers: Florian Brody and Sarah Anastasia Hahn of Brody NewMedia, David DeCheser and Eric Dinyer of Dreamless Studios, Auriea Harvey of Entropy8 Design, and Simon Dixon of Attik. The companion CD-ROM features 72 direct-to-web links, plus more than 200 additional sites, QuickTime video and free fonts. With the growing popularity of the net, this is now the big challenge for today's graphic designers.
