The strong advantage of the book is that it was written in collaboration between a designer and a developer. Thanks to this collaboration, it was possible to collect many tips and tricks that will help to significantly improve your projects at the level of details. Almost everything that is known about web design today is reflected in this book. Thera are also a collection of tips for improving interface design at the level of the smallest details.

In its short and pleasantly readable chapters you will read about how to create a beautiful usability interface yourself and what principles, schemes and tactics exist to do so.

This book is specially useful to designers coming from a primarily print background and also to developers who would like to improve their user interface design capabilities to be able to build websites and apps that are more functional and aesthetically appealing to the users.

Quotes from the book:

The more systems you have in place, the faster you’ll be able to work and the less you’ll second guess your own decisions.

Don’t use grey text on colored backgrounds

The absolute best way to notice the little details that make a design look really polished is to recreate that design from scratch, without peeking at the developer tools.

Start with a feature, not a layout
