Publisher's Synopsis

Solve common application design and usability issues with flair!

Design for Developers introduces the essential design and UX techniques to help you create good user experiences, iterate smoothly on front-end features, and collaborate effectively with designer colleagues.

Author Stephanie Stimac shares the unique insights she's learned as a designer for the Microsoft Developer Experiences team. This one-of-a-kind book provides a developer-centric approach to the essential design fundamentals of modern web applications.

Key features include:

  • Use colour, typography, and layout to create a hierarchy on a web page
  • Apply colour palettes consistently in a user interface
  • Choose the correct typefaces and fonts
  • Conduct user research to validate design decisions
  • Quickly plan a website's layout and structure

Ideal for web developers familiar with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript basics, you will learn how to craft a polished visual design with just colour, space, and typeface and put all your new skills into practice to design a website from scratch.
