A proven methodology for creating sophisticated, visually appealing Web sites for business, education, and entertainment interests
No longer just a research or academic reference library, the Net is on its way to becoming the ultimate interactive medium of worldwide commerce, education, and entertainment. That's why anyone involved in designing today's increasingly sophisticated Web sites needs to know a lot more than just a handful of HTML protocols. To design a usable and appealing site capable of handling complex human interactions, you need to know how to effectively apply the principles of visual and user-interface design. Now this book shows you how.
Written by a professional user-interface and graphic designer with extensive experience designing large-scale Web sites, this book gives you a complete methodology to use when planning, designing, and developing full-featured, interactive Web sites. Working within the framework of user-interface design principles, and using many detailed examples to illustrate his points, Darrell Sano walks you through the entire process--from setting objectives and defining user and content limitations, to visual design techniques for effective page layout.
