New Book: Web Design Confidential

by

We're very excited to finally announce the publication of Web Design Confidential! Web Design Confidential is an insider's snapshot of the web design industry, compiled from a survey of over 5,200 web designers and interviews with ten notable names in web design today. It's available in epub, mobi and pdf ebooks from Rockable Press, or in print on Amazon. Sound interesting? Read on for more details.


Hear About the Book From the Author

Hey guys, it's Amanda Hackwith, author of Web Design Confidential. After writing my previous book, Freelance Confidential, I found myself thinking about another industry that means a lot to me: web design. I've worked for ten years in the design industry, both as a freelancer and employee of large companies, and worked with countless designers as the former manager for GraphicRiver. Like every designer, I spend a lot of my time trying to keep up on new practices. I'm always curious about what other designers are doing and how I can do my job better.

Who wouldn't want to peer over the shoulder of other designers and see what they're doing? Who hasn't wanted to pick the brains of some of the popular names in web design and get the inside skinny? How valuable would that be for your own career?

So that's what I did! In Web Design Confidential, we take a look at what over 5,000 global web designers had to say in the 2011 Web Design Survey hosted by WebDesignTuts+. We look at who we are, how we work, what we know, and our opinions on what exactly makes a top notch web designer. Some of the results might surprise you. For instance, did you know...

  • ...finding ways to relate education to your work is the number one influence to being successful?
  • ...only 9% of freelance designers charge a flat hourly rate?
  • ...over three quarters of clients request a content management system?
  • ...more than a third of designers have no opinion on spec work?

We also get the experts to weigh in. You'll hear from Vitaly Friedman of Smashing Magazine, Sarah Parmenter of You Know Who Design, Veerle of Duoh!, top-selling ThemeForest template designers like Kreisi and Cudazi, and many more. They've kindly shared advice that comes from years of experience and cuts to the chase about how to improve your design career.

During the process of digging through thousands of survey responses and chatting with the top names in our field, I've learned a lot about our industry. I think you will too. Join me and get the confidential scoop from the web design industry.
