About the Book

Learn design fundamentals and shortcuts to make you a better designer. 

Beginner design books assume you want to become an expert designer. What if you want to learn just enough to complement your existing work? Hello Web Design will teach you the basics about design (no history!) and give you shortcuts so you can immediately become a better designer.

What you'll learn

Walkthrough the stages of design

Learn the steps of designing to help you go from idea, to blank paper, to prototypes, to launched project.

Shortcuts on choosing colors

Forget choosing colors randomly on a color wheel find out the best shortcuts to get you a great color palette fast.

The basics of fonts

Learn the differences between fonts, basic typography, and where to find (and narrow down) great typefaces.

Demystifying white space

You know it's important, but how to use it? We'll go through where white space can help your design the most.

Where to find images and icons

Great imagery can make a design. Learn some easy tips on how to use imagery and great resources on where to find it.

The importance of user experience

Design isn't how it looks it's how it works. Learn how your visual design ties into the user-experience.

Who am I?

Hey there! I'm Tracy Osborn — a designer/developer/entreprenerd (you read that right). I have a BFA in Art & Design and taught myself programming in order to launch my startup, WeddingLovely (500 Startups F11). You can read more about WeddingLovely in Indie Hackers.

I've always been frustrated by beginner books and wrote Hello Web App to teach web app development to designers using Python and Django. Today, Hello Web App has been read by thousands of people around the world. 

Hello Web Design is based on my Design for Non-Designers conference presentation given around the world, including Mozilla's View Source Conference 2016, GitHub's CodeConf LA 2016, and as a keynote at O'Reilly's Fluent Conference 2016

Would love to chat to you — say hello to me on Twitter!
