Part III. Designing Web Graphics
In this part ...
As a creative, soon-to-be Web professional, this is the part that you've been waiting for — the part where you get to flex some creative muscle and start building Web graphics from the ground up. If you've been a print designer or if you're new to the Web and need to know the tools, tips, issues, and techniques for designing Web graphics, this part is for you.
Chapters 7 and 8 walk you through the basic principles of graphic design and typography and discuss how they relate to the Web. As a Web designer, you must also be aware of the technical issues surrounding color palettes, image resolution, and file formats. Chapters 9 and 10 give you an in-depth understanding of these issues, as well as give you hands-on practice creating Web graphics with some of today's best software tools.
In Chapter 11, I show you how to put all your skills together to create a set of design options for a Web site and present them to a client. After the client approves a design direction, Chapter 12 handles prepping final production files and producing Web-ready graphics.
