I have just finished reading a great new book called Sexy Web Design by the awesome web designer Elliot Jay Stocks. Although I read a lot of web design related books, I usually don’t write reviews about them but I thought this one deserved a mention.

I am not going to get into the exact details of the book because I wouldn’t want to ruin it if you haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading it.

What I will say is that this book is one awesome read and really details the process of creating SEXY website designs. There are a lot of tips and detailed descriptions on how to create a stunning design from start to finish in a very professional and structured way.

Elliot covers everything from receiving the first brief from clients all the way up to the final deliverables and everything in between. This book is not a technical reference on how to build websites which were actually one of the reasons I found it so enjoyable to read.

So if you are looking for a new web design related book to read I would highly recommend picking up a copy of Sexy Web Design. It is a quick read and full of some great tips and advice for both rookie web designers and professionals alike. The entire process outlined in the book has definitely helped me to create a more structured approach when working on new designs.

The book is available from Sitepoint and Amazon. You can also learn more about Elliot by checking out his website at http://elliotjaystocks.com

    Have to agree with you. I really appreciated seperating all technical aspects from the book and concentrating entirely on the design aspects of websites. Really invaluable insights.
