Graphic Design: The Forgotten Web Standard – Mike  Kus

“The limitations to web design come not from the technologies or tolls we use but from our imaginations”

Layout – Make your site easy to use, don’t over complicate things, think about UI design, 

Design for experience – make it connect emotionally with users.

“Great design is supported by all browsers”

Typography – get creative with type, make it readable, it’s not about how many fonts you have, it’s about how you use them.

Copy – Harness the power of copy – great copy can influence your design.

Colour – Is beautiful and complicated, Learn about colour theory, steal dulux colour cards and pin them up!

Imagery – Harness the power of imagery.

Buck trends and Break conventions! – become a trend setter, stay away from css galleries – or go to smashing magazine, check out their 2009 design trends and avoid them like the plague!

Magazine your website – see what it looks like as a magazine cover.

“Learn from the past masters to catapult yo into the future”

Don’t obsess over tech.
