[8:00 AM] The December Edition Of Web Page Design For Designers Is Ready
The December issue of Web Page Design for Designers (WPDFD) is available. The WPDFD is geared toward assisting graphics and design professionals or hobbyists make the transition to the World Wide Web. According to WFDFD:
The purpose of Web Page Design for Designers is not to teach people how to produce web pages. There is little mention of HTML or any other technical stuff except where necessary. It is assumed that the reader already has a grasp of HTML programming, or has made the decision to use a WYSIWYG Web page editor. It is aimed at people who are already involved with design and typography for conventional print and want to explore the possibilities of this new electronic medium. They are probably already using page layout tools like QuarkXPress, Photoshop, Freehand and Illustrator and have discovered that designing web pages is something quite different.
