Wendy Willard's credentials indicated a degree from Art Center College of Design. That was one of the reasons I bought this book as I wanted advice from one of the "creatives" about how to go about designing an interesting web site. Although I have 30+ years of experience in IT and hi-tech, being stared in the face with the reality of: "just how do you produce a compelling web site in 60-days? --with no experience?"..... that had me really intimidated. The book exceeded my expectations; it is well thought-out, practical, personal and walks the reader methodically through the entire cycle of Planning-->Designing-->Coding-->Going Live. It not only addresses the aesthetic considerations, but is full of do's & don'ts (from practical experience) regarding design considerations affecting performance and visual presentation. The author provides many screen shots from sites under discussion, and the text is loaded with links to sites that provide supplementary information. Well worth the price.
