Sudbury, MA (Vocus) October 6, 2010
Jones & Bartlett Learning is pleased to announce the release of a brand new text titled, Artistic Web Design Using Adobe® Dreamweaver® and Photoshop: An Introduction, by veteran graphic design educator Vickie Ellen Wolper. The four-color, heavily illustrated book provides an understanding of the principles of artistic design as they relate to the web, followed by the application of those design principles using Adobe Dreamweaver.
Tailored to users of either CS3, CS4, or the latest version of Dreamweaver, CS5, this text brings the reader through the design stage from initial concept to graphic preparation, followed by the importing of graphics or whole pages into Dreamweaver for building the site and uploading it to the Internet. Although no programming knowledge is required, a chapter on HTML and other web programming fundamentals is included. By the end of the book, the reader will have their very own website.
“While other books focus on either the design process or the execution process, this all-inclusive text spans the entire web site creation process providing a solid foundation in the artistic considerations of web design, such as color theory, web typography, navigation design and the principles of web design layout, preparation of web images and roll over/navigation graphics, coupled with the complete site building process using Dreamweaver, including topics such as site management, navigation bars and image rollovers, tables, CSS for text, forms, and site publication,” says author and educator Vickie Ellen Wolper.
Just Published and Now Available
A CD-ROM with images, sample web pages, and more accompanies the book. An instructor's resource kit is available upon adoption as a text.
