This well-made, well-printed 330-page book is also well designed and well thought out. The organizational hierarchy is easy to follow, the illustrations are clear and to the point, and the book is full of useful cross-references.

Flexible Web Design is meant for professional web designers who already have experience creating web sites from scratch but want to improve their CSS layout skills. Even if you intend to continue designing fixed-width sites primarily, you'll learn how to design your comps and build your pages in a way that makes them more adaptable to the user-controlled nature of the web.

If you're interested in building responsive web designs, Flexible Web Design will teach you dozens of fluid layout techniques as well as a variety of approaches for making your images flexible to fit within fluid containers. You'll learn how to approach a new project with responsive web design planned in from the beginning, creating comps that will work as flexible, responsive layouts. (You won't learn the media queries portion of responsive design, but can learn this in the free excerpt of Chapter 6 of Stunning CSS3: A Project-based Guide to the Latest in CSS, Zoe's newest book.)

This book will be especially helpful to former print designers or web designers used to table-based layout who still struggle to produce pure CSS layouts. It will teach you how to think in the CSS mindset so that designing for CSS becomes natural and you no longer find yourself fighting against inappropriate comps when it comes time to actually build the pages.

With a group of students from diverse backgrounds, a programme such as Web Design & Content Planning requires some common currency among those taking part. This course acts as a foundation for further study and discussion. As such, we will cover some basic aspects of web design. This is notto undervalue what you already may know but to ensure that everyone has the same basic understanding of the issues.

This course is about the technical and aesthetic aspects of web design in equal measure. The course is not about learning how to use any particular piece of software. It is about gaining a fundamental understanding of how the web works and how to create webpages to a high standard.

You will design and produce a basic website for a small business concern. This project will give you the opportunity to implement some of the techniques and design ideas you have developed during the first part of the course. This project will be used to help demonstrate some of the issues involved with the development of small websites including: the design process, colour and typography, site structure and navigation, standards compliant and semantic coding.

Some websites are built from scratch, but increasingly, web designers have to learn how to redesign existing sites. For this project, you will take an existing website and redesign it using the same content. This will give you the opportunity to critically assess the current site and to make improvements where you think they are required. You should undertake an analysis of the inherent problems with the existing design and provide an explanation of how these have been resolved in your new design.

There are literally hundreds of good web design sites on the web but a few are outstanding with excellent content added on a regular basis. I recommend that you read both A LIST Apart and Smashing Magazine regularly.

The primary text for this course is Jennifer Robbins' Learning Web Design (4th Ed.) and this should be suitable for most students. However, everyone learns in a different way and so I recommend 2 alternatives that some students may feel more comfortable with. The first is Head First HTML and CSS (2nd Ed.) by Elisabeth Robson and Eric Freeman, which makes for a slightly gentler introduction and may be appropriate for those with little or no prior experience of web design. The second is HTML & CSS: Design and Build Web Sites by Jon Duckett, which will appeal to those with a design background.

Since web design is a fast evolving discipline, it's a good idea to keep up with current trends by reading online magazines (see below) and blogs. However, it's still nice to receive your news, reviews and articles in paper format. As far as printed magazines are concerned, there is only one worth mentioning and that is net Magazine. It's an excellent publication, covering all the areas of concern for students on this programme and I recommend that you subscribe to it. The online magazines listed below are just the most useful of many currently publishing useful material, so this should be considered a partial list only.

If any book could claim to be a single volume introduction to everything a beginner needs to know about web design, this book comes closer than any other I know. If I tell you that the subtitle to this book is &#147A beginner's guide to HTML, CSS, JavaScript and web graphics&#148, that will give you some idea of the scope of this excellent book. At just over 600 pages long, this isn't a short read, but it is a surprisingly light read. Robbins is obviously a teacher and her clear and logical explanations of the topics in this book are delivered at a sensible pace, which makes even complex concepts such as progressive enhancement and responsive web design easy to understand. Web design beginners should make this book number one on their shopping list.

Inevitably, and even after 600 pages, Jennifer Robbins can't take us to the cutting edge of web design but fortunately, Peter Gasston can take us there with his book, The Modern Web. In it, Peter discusses many of the changes in web design technology happening right now and those that are set to become important in the near future such as the CSS Flexbox module. However, the book is not just about the headline design tools of the future, it also covers many topics that will just make you a better coder. Coverage of WAI-ARIA roles and HTML5 Microdata will help you write code that is semantically rich and accessible by assistive technologies. Of course, there's graphics too and Peter spends a whole chapter covering the SVG file format, which is destined to become possibly the most important graphics format on the web. This book will take your understanding of web technologies to an advanced level.

Of all the conceptual and applied challenges that face the contemporary web designer, it is probably responsive design that causes the most difficulties. Partly this is due to the fact that it is still relatively new and optimised workflows have yet to be invented and certainly, the tools we currently use are far from ideal. Of course, every web designer must read Ethan Marcotte's Responsive Web Design published by A Book Apart in order to grasp the fundamentals of this approach, but what then? Well, Tim Kadlec's excellent book is the next step. It takes the principles outlined by Marcotte and expands on them, taking the reader on a journey through a typical web design project and demonstrating how responsive design principles can be implemented.

A good understanding of responsive design is important for all web designers and I recommend reading as much as you can on the subject. On your reading list should also be the chapters by Brad Frost and Trent Walton from The Mobile Book, published by Smashing Magazine.

Above the Fold is an ideal book for the web design newbie. Although it doesn't cover any particular topic in any great depth, it gives a great overview of the visual web design process and covers everything from the history of the web to the use of analytics via web page anatomy, typography, site planning, marketing and SEO. This book won't teach you how to code but it makes the perfect companion to your favourite book on HTML and CSS. It's printed in full colour with lots of really informative illustrations and lots of examples of websites that clearly illustrate the points made in the text. The book is a quick and easy read but there's enough here to make it a great reference too.

If I have one small criticism, it is that the book shows a bias towards the author's particular area of expertise (typography) but for those who need a visual design primer for the web that takes in other considerations like standard IAB banner sizes, this book is perfect.

For anyone who has never written a computer programme before, JavaScript can be quite daunting Given that working with JavaScript and associated libraries like jQuery is now a key front-end skill, there is a need for a book that can take all would-be front-end designer/developers from first principles to an intermediate level in a simple and engaging manner. Jon Duckett's book does just that. It is unlike any other programming/scripting book I know. It is beautifully thought through, beautifully written and (what makes it different) beautifully presented.
