Each volume is a concise and fresh take on an important field in web design. Jeremy Keith’s HTML5 for Web Designers explores what the web’s new lingua franca means for working designer/developers. Dan Cederholm’s CSS3 for Web Designers shows how you can design for the experience layer today. Erin Kissane’s The Elements of Content Strategy explains where content strategy came from, and how you can do it well. Ethan Marcotte’s Responsive Web Design demonstrates CSS techniques and design principles for crafting fluid, responsive websites. Aarron Walter’s Designing for Emotion will teach you how to you make your users fall in love with your site, while Luke Wroblewski’s Mobile First will make you a master of mobile, and improve your desktop designs, too. Mike Monteiro’s Design Is a Job will help you do your job better, while Karen McGrane’s Content Strategy for Mobile teaches you everything you need to get your content onto mobile devices (and more). Erika Hall’s Just Enough Research will put you on the path to asking the right questions and using airtight analysis methods to create a strong foundation for your very next project. Last but not least, Dan Cederholm’s Sass for Web Designers dispels the myth that CSS pre-processors add complexity to your work, and shows you how to instantly level up your code.

About the Authors

  • Jeremy Keith is an Irish web developer living in Brighton, England where he works with the kickass design agency Clearleft. He makes websites. He also plays bouzouki. He rarely does both at the same time.

  • Dan Cederholm is a designer, author, and speaker living in Salem, Massachusetts. He’s the Co-Founder of Dribbble, a community for designers, and Founder of SimpleBits, a tiny design studio. A long-time advocate of standards-based web design, Dan has worked with YouTube, Microsoft, Google, MTV, ESPN and others. He’s written several popular books about web design, and received a TechFellow award in early 2012. He’s currently an aspiring clawhammer banjoist and occasionally wears a baseball cap.

  • Erin Kissane edits magazines, websites, does content strategy for institutions and companies, and reads a lot. She currently edits Contents magazine and Knight-Mozilla OpenNews’s Source community site for journalists who code. She was formerly editorial director at Happy Cog Studios and a lead content strategist at Brain Traffic, and she edited A List Apart magazine for a long time. She lives in Brooklyn and tweets at @Kissane.

  • Ethan Marcotte is a web designer & developer who cares deeply about beautiful design, elegant code, and the intersection of the two. Over the years, Ethan has enjoyed working with such clients as the Sundance Film Festival, Stanford University, New York Magazine, and The Today Show. He swears profusely on Twitter, and would like to be an unstoppable robot ninja when he grows up. Beep.

  • Aarron Walter is the Director of User Experience at MailChimp, where he strives to make software more human. Aarron taught design at colleges in the US and Europe for nearly a decade, and speaks at conferences around the world. His design guidance has helped the White House, the US Department of State, and dozens of startups.

  • Luke Wroblewski is currently the CEO and Co-Founder of Input Factory Inc. Luke’s previous venture, Bagcheck (where he was Co-Founder and CPO), was acquired by Twitter just nine months after being launched publicly. Before he was founding start-ups, Luke was an Entrepreneur in Residence at Benchmark Capital, the Chief Design Architect (VP) at Yahoo!, Lead User Interface Designer at eBay, and the author of three popular web design books (Mobile First, Web Form Design, and Site-Seeing).

  • Mike Monteiro is the co-founder and design director of Mule Design, an interactive design studio founded in 2001 whose work has been called “delightfully hostile” by The New Yorker. He prefers elegant, simple sites with clear language that serve a real need. He prefers that designers have strong spines. All of his clients still talk to him. Originally from Philadelphia, Mike now resides in San Francisco. When he’s not at work he’s out speaking about design, buying music on vinyl, reading comics, hanging out his son Henry, and getting into arguments on Twitter (you can find him there as @monteiro). He secretly really likes his dog.

  • Karen McGrane plays nicely in the content strategy, information architecture, and interaction design sandboxes. She is Managing Partner at Bond Art + Science, a UX consultancy she founded in 2006, and formerly VP and National Lead for User Experience at Razorfish. She’s led projects for dozens of clients, including The New York Times, Condé Nast, and The Atlantic. She also teaches Design Management in the Interaction Design MFA program at the School of Visual Arts.

  • Erika Hall has been working in web design and development since the late 20th century. In 2001, she co-founded Mule Design Studio where she directs the research, interaction design, and strategy practices. Erika speaks and writes frequently about cross-disciplinary collaboration and the importance of natural language in user interfaces. In her spare time, she battles empty corporate jargon at Unsuck It. She also co-hosts Running from the Law, a weekly podcast on business law and endurance fitness, and can probably outrun you.
