Deep Sites : Intelligent Innovation in Contemporary Web Design Paperback / softback


For the first time, here is an intelligent book that matches cutting-edge web design with powerful writing on the critical issues and discourses of the web. The book is organized into five essential areas:* Interface recognizes that even after a more than a decade of the web, designers and developers are still exploring the best ways to navigate cyberspace* Typography analyzes the reinvention of once static letterforms when applied to on-screen media - including the use of time and motion* Animation views the web as a time-based medium in which print and TV environments are combined into new formats* Community investigates the explosive growth of personal and community homepages - from the crude and candid to the innocent and diversely outrageous* Authoring considers the consequences of the complex websites which are now being created by complete amateurs, also ways of using the web as `text' to sample and resample. Today the web is a given, but its seemingly infinite variety and depth have forced companies and designers to reconsider their position as editors of the web's content; on the web, authoring and designing become deeply collaborative efforts.

Deep Sites leads a large audience directly to the key practitioners and to the underlying principles that make their work so significant.
