Future updates

-- I THINK THIS WHOLE SECTION NEEDS AN OVERHAUL, AS CURRENTLY IT IS NOT VERY EFFECTIVE. THE TYPOGRAPHY AND IA SECTIONS ARE FINE, BUT I'M NOT SURE ABOUT THE OTHER STUFF. I THINK THE SECTION SHOULD BE RETITLED "DESIGN AND PLANNING", AND HAVE A STRUCTURE SOMETHING LIKE THE FOLLOWING:

  1. INTRO TO PLANNING A WEB SITE - COVER ALL THE PRELIMINARY RESEARCH AND DESIGN AT A HIGH LEVEL, AND THEN GIVE LINKS TO EACH BIT IN MORE DETAIL, WHICH WILL BE COVERED IN LATER CHAPTERS
  2. SCOPING
  3. USER RESEARCH
  4. PAGE DESIGN ELEMENTS
  5. INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE
  6. TYPOGRAPHY
  7. COLOUR SCHEMES AND DESIGN THEORY
  8. MOCKUPS/PROTOTYPES
  9. THE IDEA BEHIND UX, AND HOW TO GET YOUR SITE WORKING BETTER FOR YOUR USERS, AND FITTING WITH YOUR BRAND
  10. MAKING CHANGES, WORKING TOWARDS A DESIGN YOU CAN TAKE FORWARD TO IMPLEMENTATION

About the author

Clawing his way from deepest, darkest Somerset upon his coming of age, Paul Haine found himself ironically trapped for a further six years on the opposite side of the country in deepest, darkest Kent, learning about web standards during the spare weeks between history lectures. After spending two years in Oxford and writing HTML Mastery, he moved to London’s Famous Islington where he works as a client-side developer for The Guardian.

Paul blogs at his personal website, [joeblade.com http://joeblade.com].
