Good design sells products and invites users to return. Design Concepts with Code: An Approach for Developers understands developers aren't particularly interested in learning graphics applications or reading a treatise on design. The book offers clear and concise design concepts, examples, and projects to support developer proficiency with design in a short period of time. Great developers often create products that work well, look bad, and never reach their potential audience. Developers can design prototypes and products by considering and implementing a reasonable set of design axioms that hold their strength over time.

In Design Concepts with Code: An Approach for Developers, design concepts including interface design, design principles, design elements, layout, content and typography, and color are presented with code including XML, XHTML/CSS, SVG, XSLT, XSL-FO, and scripting languages. This text offers design concepts, examples, projects, and code (no apps) to quickly enhance client and user interpretation and appreciation of web-based products.
