Designing Web site interface elements: for graphic designers
The challenge in creating any Web site, whether it's an intranet, extranet, or full-blown e-commerce superstore, is creating an interface that makes quick sense to the user. Any e-tailer will testify that ease-of-use can make or break a Web site, and in some cases, an entire business. The second title in the new DesignWhys series, Designing Web Site Interface Elements targets professional designers and developers with plenty of glossy, full-color screen shots and illustrations as well as advice from the trenches on how to effectively use design and branding to reach a target audience. Award-winning designer and author, Eric Eaton, uses real world examples to help explain how the creation and placement of buttons, links, menus, lists, layers, and more can help or even hurt a site. Unlike many Web design titles, Designing Web Site Interface Elements is written by an expert designer for expert designers, going beyond basic how-to instructions to explain the why behind the design.
