Praise for The Design of Sites

Praise for The Design of Sites

“Stop reinventing the wheel every time you design a Web site! The Design of Sites helps you rethink your Web sites in terms of genres and patterns. Once you have identified the patterns and applied the best practices for those patterns as outlined in this book, you will reduce your design effort by 50 percent … at least!”

PAWAN R. VORA Vice President, Information Architecture, Seurat Company

“The content [in The Design of Sites] could make a novice into a seasoned professional over a weekend. Many companies pay a fortune for the information contained in the book's primary chapters.”

JOHN CILIO Global marketing manager for the Web site of a leading international supplier of computer hardware, software, and services

“This book has many handy checklists for what you should and should not do in creating a conventional Web site. Just following the authors' suggestions would put your site in the top few percent for readability and usability.”

JEF RASKIN Creator of the Macintosh computer and author of The Humane Interface

“Now that The Design of Sites has made its appearance, we won't have to put up with those poorly designed Web pages. These authors have captured patterns from successful Web designers, including their own experience in consulting and teaching, and have made this information accessible to all of us. The book is readable yet full of worthwhile information—a valuable addition to any Web designer's bookshelf.”

LINDA RISING Independent consultant and author of The Patterns Handbook, The Pattern Almanac 2000, and Design Patterns in Communications Software

“[The Design of Sites] bridges the gap from theory to practice and makes it possible for people in the Web-design space to use user-centered design principles in their work—without having to undertake extensive training.”

MAYA VENKATRAMAN Human interface engineer, Sun Microsystems

“The coverage [in The Design of Sites] is excellent—issues go beyond the traditional 'design the best page' focus and do a good job of showing the context. I haven't seen any other book with the kind of breadth this has.”

TERRY WINOGRAD Professor of computer science, Stanford University, and editor of Bringing Design to Software
