Taking Your Talent to the Web by Jeffrey Zeldman This book provides coverage of web design, and offers useful comparisons between elements of design in the print world and those in the web world. The book also acts a resource for those currently in art/design and other creative industries to learn how to apply their skills to the Web. The book informs designers about the similarities and differences, and what to expect. For example, the book goes into detail about browser-safe colors, the differences between gifs and jpegs, when and why to use them, and also provides coverage of tools (such as Photoshop) that can help you create web artwork. The book also provides information about the work web designers do, including a chapter covering the life cycle of a web design project. Coverage of web development tools and languages, including HTML, style sheets and JavaScript is also provided.

Taking Your Talent to the Web is a great book for artists looking to apply their skills to web design and for amateur webmasters ready to take their skills to the next level. If you already have talent and experience in art and design, this reference can help you expand your skills so you can earn additional income from web design.
