It is visually rich and packed with essential advice from experienced practitioners. It takes the reader through all aspects of web and digital design, including theoretical perspectives, the design process, technical application, and all the while demystifying complex terminology.

Web and Digital for Graphic Designers is for anyone who wants an in-depth view of graphic design, its history, and its practical application. I found the book to be extremely well organized with very thorough yet concise content. I especially enjoyed the chapter on coding because it's something I've always wanted to learn more about, and the authors did a superb job making such a complex topic easy to comprehend. Another great feature is that the authors include a Q&A from a handful of industry professionals that gives an added perspective of the industry. Kudos, very well done!! -- Amanda Lasser, Pratt Institute, USA
