If anything, this volume's premise--that the business of Web design is one of constant change-has only proven truer over time. So much so, in fact, that the 12-month design cycles cited in the last edition have shrunk to 6 or even 3 months today. Which is why, more than ever, you need a smart, practical guide that demonstrates how to plan, budget, organize, and manage your Web redesign - or even you initial design - projects from conceptualization to launch. This volume delivers! In these pages Web designer extraordinaire Kelly Goto and coauthor Emily Cotler have distilled their real-world experience into a sound approach to Web redesign workflow that is as much about business priorities as it is about good design. By focusing on where these priorities intersect, Kelly and Emily get straight to the heart of the matter. Each chapter includes a case study that illustrates a key step in the process, and you'll find a plethora of forms, checklists, and worksheets that help you put knowledge into action.This is an AIGA Design Press book published under Peachpit's New Riders imprint in partnership with AIGA.

Such a great walk-through. Almost every module of thought is obviously birthed from honest and earnest cyclical discipline, or at least the appearance of. Either way, I am challenged and empowered in the same moment to ingest and envelope these practices into my own workflow. Rather, I am challenged to see where my own workflow can fit into the Core Process. I immediately saw the ills of current projects once I viewed them through the eyes of these authors. I would highly recommend this to anyone in the web design industry that has any say in the development or business cycle.
