Web Style Guide – 2nd Edition
By Patrick Lynch and Sarah Horton
As we return to the drawing board to figure out what we should do with the Web and our Web sites, what we needed all along becomes clear: fundamentals and fundamentally sound advice to help us think for ourselves and design for our users.
Fortunately, this wonderful little book is still here to show us those fundamentals. Patrick Lynch and Sarah Horton aren’t trying to scare you with hype or jargon. They’re just trying to get you to slow down, take a deep breath, and think for yourself. They’ll teach you basic design principles as well as tricks of the trade, ranging from interaction design to typography, so that you can develop your own Web site or better understand and communicate with the people who are doing that work for you. More important, they will give you a broad framework that will help you understand the Big Picture of Web design. Even if you don’t agree with all of their advice, you’ll have a starting point from which to develop your ideas and practices.
If you’re new to the Web, this is the book for you. It will give you a broad overview of a very complicated subject and get you started in the right direction. It will also make you look very smart when you carry it into meetings with your Web team.
