The Web Designer's Roadmap is a full-color book about the creative process and the underlying principles that govern that process.

While other books cover the nuts 'n' bolts of how to design the elements that make up websites, this book outlines how effective designers go about their work, illustrating the complete creative process from start to finish.

As well as how-to content, the book draws on interviews with a host of well-known design gurus, including Shaun Inman, Daniel Burka, Meagan Fisher, Donald Norman and Dan Rubin.

He taught me web design, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and a smattering of PHP. He’s opinionated, gruff, and good-hearted. I hope he knows how much I appreciate his leadership and tutelage.

All this work before you even start designing might seem overkill, but I encourage you to try it out. You’ll see that taking a couple of extra steps to organize your ideas and understand the problems that you’re solving will serve you well when putting together your designs.
