For my internship I need to rebuild a company website. I am a front end developer myself with some design skills. Mostly front-end development and SEO skills though.
Now I want to find out more about certain design principles, theories, usability, user centered designs etc. because I’m going to lead the project. Although 2 schooled designers work on the project, I want to acquire more knowledge about the above mentioned aspects of design. But I don’t really know where to start.
Can anyone recommend some good books or sites about these aspects?
All help is much appreciated
Theres a book called “Don’t Make Me Think” which is really, really good if a little dated. Failing that there’s a always some good articles at Boagworld or ThinkVitamin.
