  • Kathryn

    Excellent!! Anything that can help when “you’re brainstorming with a coworker or explaining your ideas to a client” always grabs my attention! Often the hardest part of any project is ascertaining the expectations of all involved and managing those expectations (and your own creativity) so that you can create your best work in every time! At the end of the day, that’s what puts bread on the table and a proud grin on your face. Visual aids help a lot with this! If this book can inspire the inspired, then you’re on to a winner with this book! And I want one!

  • Lance Laughlin

    I want to wiiiiinnnnnnn!

    Someone once said “God is a DJ and life is a turntable”. Now we can rephrase it as:
    “You are the DJ and WEB is the turntable”. It seems a nice source not only for designers but also for advertisers who wants to widen his/her borders.

  • Chantal

    I work for a state agency and am always looking for inspiration. We have limits on what we can do. Trying to add life to the website so users stay interested, but keep it between the lines is difficult. I’m excited to see that there is a resource that can help me out.

    I have a personal site, but never seem to find the energy after hours to work on it. My site needs redesigning. I have a lot more flexibility there. I’m interested to see how I can use the book in both arenas.

    These books are great sources of inspiration, as well as watching trends and fads, good or bad. This is something I, as well as other web designers, should have in their library. Even better to pick one up for free = more $$ to spend on other great resources.

    I used Volume for inspiration and ideas. I loved how it broke websites down in categories and by colors. I was in the process of designing a GREEN website (the color Green), and was struggling finding good colors and bought Volume 1. It gave me some idea and much needed inspiration. I want Volume 2, if I don’t win it- I will be ordering it on Amazon anyway.
