This is the second volume in this series. I have used both in Web Design college classes. I was forced to purchase these books both times. At first, I thought... nooooooooooooooooooooo... these are weird, they don't look like the rest of the web, please don't make me do this. Hmmmmmmm... well, 2 classes and 2 books later... whoa... I just loved creating my own "out of the box" web designs. It just opened up my creative horizons to just "go for it" in creating web designs that really catch the eye, make you take a second look, add some interesting details to what would just be another ho-hum design. It is fun to push yourself and explore. It also really helps push the limits of exploring all that WYSIWYG web developing tools like CS4 Adobe Dreamweaver. Whether you work strictly with HTML, PHP, FLASH or a web design program like Dreamweaver, this book and the first volume ("Fresh Styles") will put some pazazzzz into your designing!

Try it, you'll like it!

If you're looking for a resource to help the creative process, this book is an excellent tool to check out a collection of design styles and their significance to the art. Cloninger provides a sharp and savvy perspective on why various techniques are appealing and how they relate to different demographics. His writing style is clear and informative in a relaxed and quirky manner. Cloninger is smart and funny, and this book definitely helps readers develop their own unique style.

Great choice especially for budding designers.

Do not buy this book. As a hiring UX Design Manager for a successful online marketing agency let me tell you, if you copy the "styles" in this book and submit them in a professional portfolio to a potential employer you wil not only NOT be hired but you will be laughed at. There are some college professors out there actually using this book as a classroom textbook. A disservice is being done to all potential design students by propagating the horrific designs in this book. The majority of them are actually so poor that they are not even functional for the user. Please, save your money.

This book claims to be for "Professional and aspiring web designers and hobbyists". While the information it presents would probably be of great use to professional designers I do not believe that the book would be of as much use to aspiring designers or hobbyists. Most of the styles that the book discusses have rather specialised areas where their use would be appropriate but that may not be so obvious to the less experienced designer who may not pay proper attention to those aspects. The book does make it relatively clear what situations the author considers are appropriate uses for the particular styles but the way that the book is laid out makes it somewhat tempting to just flip through the pages looking for ideas from the images without necessarily reading all of the associated text.

The book does an excellent job of providing useful information to experienced web designers which appears to be its target market. There are many other books on web design that aspiring designers an hobbyists will find more useful though as for most of them the information in this book will not apply to their circumstances and even where it does the way that the book is laid out will make it difficult for them to determine whether the styles in the book are really appropriate or not.
