UIEtips: Visual Design Essentials for Non-Designers

Jared Spool

June 28th, 2011

One of the benefits of attending a live virtual seminar is that attendees get to ask our expert presenters questions during the seminar. There always seems to be more questions than we have time for so we schedule a podcast recording with the expert to address these unanswered questions.

One such podcast interview was with Dan Rubin in a follow up to his webinar on visual design tips for non-designers. Dan is an amazing designer and part of the talented Sidebar Creative collective (they do the Web Design Masterclass). We found Dan’s information so valuable we thought it was article worthy. So we took part of the transcript of his podcast with Adam Churchill and turned it into this week’s UIEtips article. After reading this article you’ll definitely want to hear the whole podcast.

Read the article, Visual Design Essentials for Non-Designers

In addition to being a great designer, Dan is a great teacher. You can learn from him and the other members of Sidebar Creative in a personal, hands-on environment at the Web Design Masterclass in Los Angeles on August 16. For all the details on this intensive one-day workshop, visit http://sidebarworkshops.com.

If you can’t make it out to LA, you can also catch Dan’s next Virtual Seminar on June 30, CSS3 for Everyone.

    I’d like to know more about this.

    Can anyone recommend any good books about visual design for non-designers?

  2. Steve Says:

    Diana, I found “The Principles of Beautiful Web Design” by Jason Beaird to be a good resource.
