Principles of Web Design
Principles of Web Design is the third edition of the best-selling book, Above the Fold. This completely revised edition includes updated content and all new reference samples. This book, written by Brian D Miller, is perfect for the college classroom and the studio reference library.
The book contains three sections: Plan, where I explore all aspects of planning a project from project management to information architecture and UX; Design, in which we examine the basic principles of design in the context of the Web; and Optimize, were we learn how to optimize our site and report on the traffic analytics.
The first and second editions of Above the Fold reached number 1 on Amazon.com's Web design book list. Used in countless classrooms, these editions built the foundation for the latest version of the book, Principles of Web Design.
One of the Best Books Available on the Web Design Process
"Brian clearly put a lot of thought and careful consideration into the structure, content and flow of the book. It’s well done. I’ve been building websites for 4 or 5 years now and this is the first book I’ve found that does a good job of walking the reader through the entire thought process of planning and creating a structured strategy for designing websites.”

"Brian Miller gives a sensible and well thought out approach to web design. As a person who is interested in getting into this field I found this book a great place to begin my journey. He links all the steps to be successful at web design. The talent and skills must be your own, but if you’re looking for a tool to focus existing talent into a career in web design, this book is an excellent place to begin.”

As executive board member and competition chairperson of the Type Directors Club (TDC), I had the honor of selecting a designer, Paula Scher, and a jury for the 58th annual competition. I also had the daunting task of writing the introduction to the book that most consider to be filled with a catalog of the world's best typography.
