Know your Onions: Web Design

About this book

This book sets out the principles and practices of web design. It will help you understand what underpins web structure, design conventions and best practice.

It touches on almost every subject and gives you a complete overview and understanding to deliver outstanding web design, leaving you to discover the areas you would like to specialise in and go on to build on these firm foundations.
This book is design focused, you will not find one line of code. It takes you through creative thinking, questioning the brief, information architecture, navigation structures, front-end design, dealing with clients and best practice for file management.

Unlike a typical 'how to' manual, the style is light, chatty and more like having a conversation with a bloke who knows his stuff.

If you want to master great website design and build process, pre-order this book on Amazon.

Know your Onions: Web Design was published by BIS Publishing


This book is a great way to ground yourself in web design. The reader is taken through techniques of brainstorming ideas all the way to designing a site and sending it to developers to be built. It’s written in a way that is engaging and humorous, as well as being easy to read. There are nice illustrations, not to mention the overall look and feel of the book has a real quality to it.
