Inspiring Creative Web Design: Past, Present, Future
This book is an objective look at the global internet community - its ideas, philosophies, inspiration, techniques, reasoning, legacies and most importantly, its impact on the future of the Internet and its design. Highly visual, this book will be broken down into chapters looking at culture, the history of web design, technology, usability vs. creativity, and futures, and will include interviews with leading web innovators around the world. It will also explore the idea that while the Internet is supposed to make geography irrelevant, there are still particular styles and trends for different parts of the world. This can also be tied into the idea of local culture. For example, colours have different meanings in different regions, and layout can vary if one nation reads right to left and bottom to top rather than the other way around. The book poses the question, where are we going? and aims to answer it by looking at where we've come from and where we are now.
