Producing a website design that stands out from the crowd is one of the web designer's greatest challenges. Distinctive Design examines the bond between code, content and visuals to guide you through the factors which increase your design's visibility, usability and beauty. Even the less artistically inclined can produce elegant, functional layouts that will leave your audience as admirers and your competitors feeling jealous! Distinctive Design sets itself apart by helping you avoid the trappings of stereotypes which exist in many of today's design books - such as the emphasis on graphic design. The core essence of Distinctive Design is in showcasing in very practical terms the importance of maximizing and prioritizing every design decision you make. From the fonts or colors you choose to the amount of whitespace you provide, the ability to portray your services and content is the ultimate goal of any website, and by looking at the power of influential design, you can strengthen your message with ease. The Distinction of Web Design Designing for Different Devices Understanding Information Architecture The Principles of Information Design Principles, Elements and Theory of Design Emotion, Influence and Behaviour The Influence of Sociology Designing User-Interfaces Promoting User-Interaction The Foundation of User-Experience Accessibility: How everyone is disabled!
