Mir hat dieses Buch sehr gut gefallen. Ich habe viele Anregungen und Tipps für meine eigene Arbeit im Bereich Webdesign erhalten. Weiter so Elliot Jay Stocks, ich freue mich schon auf sein nächstes Buch.

Sexy Design Made Easy. 5. April 2009
Von G. Barber - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
If you have read as many web design books as I have you find that they fall into basically two categories:

1) The ones in which the author waxes on about how wonderful they are at design, show off page after page of their own portfolio. The entire book becomes a publicity fest.
2) Then there is the type of book that is presented in a level headed manner, it is a great reference of the step by step process that web designers go through to product a web site.

Well Sexy Web Design by Elliot Jay Stocks is the latter, a well balanced guide that takes you through a clean conversation on how to create that next awesome web site.

The thing that I really like about this book is that it is to the point, it's not overly weighty on the design theory, as it assumes you already have some of that skill locked away already. However this book would still be ideal for a beginning designer.

Was it personally useful for me, well I'll be honest, no it wasn't. While I was reading this book I was just ticking off the points made one by one, noting that in reality there was nothing that I hadn't already learnt from experience. Now I have been doing this a long time, so I do get this a lot. But it is good to know that Elliot in mu mind has covered off all the aspects of web design.

The book is divided into 6 chapters:

1) Overview of the design process, in which the design goals of an interface and the overall process are discussed.
2) Design Research, this chapter was so welcome, explaining why the brief is important, moving onto the design inspirational process.
3) Site Structure, being involved with information architecture, I'm going to have a little bit of a bias here. It's nice to see the consideration of this design element before jumping into the high resolution design.
4) Navigation and Interaction, again I'm bias here, Elliot runs through a whistle stop tour of the common web interactive elements, and what works where and when.
5) Aesthetics, in this solid chapter Elliot looks at the usual design techniques, the grid, layout types (fixed, fluid, flexible, etc), color, mood boards, imagery types, typography and the impact of emotion on the overall user experience. In a way this book is well worth its cost for this chapter alone.
6) Final wrap is with the Deliverables, so now you have that sexy design, how do you organise your Photoshop layers, deliver that mockup, slice the design quickly and write that style guide, well in this chapter Elliot tells us how.

I have yet to read the perfect book, this had a few things that annoyed me, there was one instance where I thought the layout of the pages could have been executed in a different manor. But overall that was a minor point. Nothing that I would discount the book for.

Sexy Web Design is by in large a good reference book.

Full of little hints and tips that will help all but crusty old designers like me. And even then if you have had your eye off the ball for an instant, I bet you will still get something out of this book.

Now if you are looking for a Photoshop guide or a CSS design book, this is not for you, this is about design!

So if you have a design flare, and need to know how to design web sites then this is the book for you.

Sitting under a mentor for a couple of hours 10. April 2009
Von Jeff Bridgforth - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed seeing the process that Elliot goes through to come up with a Web design. It was like I was sitting with him having me explain his process while coming up with a design. As a veteran designer, there were a lot of little tips that will help me add to my arsenal.

I think the value of this book is being able to have someone mentor you. Elliot has proven "sexy web designs" so he is one you would want to have mentor you. I believe I will become a better designer after sitting under his tutelage.

My only disappointment is the price of the book. Sitepoint seems to price all their books at $39.95 regardless of amount of content. This book was a quick read and I think it would have been better priced at $24.99 or less.

Basic web design process book 12. August 2009
Von Luka Vida - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Although the book is very well written, it's mainly orientated towards basic web making process, not design. The process is described in a good way, but the design phase is mainly unexplained. Book's title shouldn't emphasize design nor interfaces.
If you're interested in design more than in whole process of making website buy book The Principles of Beautiful Web Design.

I believed in miracles... 27. September 2009
Von Thomas John Zakrzewski - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The author spends the first 118 pages sharing a pretty basic (and decidedly unsexy) overview of the non-aesthetic aspects of website design including more than a fair share of vague and sometimes inane generalizations; e.g., on page 97: "Make your color choices wisely..." Wisely? If I knew how to do that, I wouldn't have spent $40 on this book. And on page 100: "If your eyes feel happy, then go for it." And clap your hands, if you know it.

Then suddenly in the space of 10 pages the author presents his final website design with detailed rationale, plunging from a 10,000 foot overview to a 20X dissecting microscope inspection. I only wish I could have understood what he was talking about as he peered through his lens.

And where in all this is the "Sexy" promised in the title? The author seems to think the font Museo is "a very sexy font" (page 127), and also, generally speaking, trying anything "a bit out of the ordinary" (page 128). Yes, I suppose a bit of judicious rebellion has a certain beauty to it.

On a positive note, the book is only 146 pages long. My eyes didn't feel happy most of the way.

Misleading Title 27. Oktober 2009
Von J. Winger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book promises a lot, but offers very little. The title and description made me assume I would be learning about design theory and when and why to use certain design elements for one project and not another. But instead, the book gives a generalized overview of every step in the design process from initially talking to the client to research and so on. Each section gives you a brief outline of what you should do during that phase of the design process. For more details about a certain topic the author points to another book or blog posting you could read to sharpen your skills. I found this to be very irritating because as soon as the author started to interest me in some depth of insight he would stop and tell me to read something else.

This book is good for what it is, an overview of the web design process. But as far as sexy web design is concerned, this book is nothing but. This book would be great for someone just starting out in the web design field and doesn't know how to go from meeting with the client to completing the site the client had in mind. If you're looking for a book about sexy web design then I'd suggest looking somewhere else.
