New technologies and applications, along with ever-more-sophisticated compression techniques and broadband services, have accelerated the growth of the web and the number of its users--and given rise to a number of crucial issues. Now, for the first time, comes an intelligent book on the defining principles of cutting-edge web design. The book is organized by critical areas of web design:Interface: It took about a century for the young art of book printing to realize that it needed page numbers to facilitate easy navigation through the book. Roughly a decade after the large-scale development of the web, designers and developers are still searching for the best way to navigate cyberspace.Typography: Once static forms now have to be re-invented from scratch when applied to on-screen media to accommodate time and motion.Animation: With the advent of streaming media, growing bandwidth and leaner data, the web will become a serious competitor to television. The design implications are manifold and center on the problem of combining 'print' and 'TV' environments into new formatsCommunity: Virtually everyone can be the editor of their own web 'zine. The explosive growth of personal and community homepages has spawned entirely new approaches--crude, candid, innocent and outrageously diverse--that have begun to exert their influence on professional designAuthoring: Dozens of editorial and design software tools make it possible for complete dilettantes to create websites of considerable complexity and quality.Deep Sites will lead a large audience directly to the key practitioners and to the underlying principles that make their work so significant.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Bruinsma organizes the various elements in Deep Sites0 into five areas: "Interface," involving the actual navigation of cyberspace; the application of "Typography" to onscreen media that moves type from a spatial to a temporal art form; "Animation," another aspect of a time-based medium; "Community," which explores the growth of amateur personal and community home pages; and "Authoring," using the Web as "text" to sample and resample content and technique. --Whitney Scott Copyright 2003 Booklist"
