Look Ma, I’m in a

Look Ma, I’m in a book. I received my complementary copy of Web Design Essentials in the mail yesterday. They put three of my Web design tips in the book: Creating Static Motion, Simulating HTML Text in a Graphic, and Creating a Quick 3D Text Effect. Actually, the first and last of these tips are actually more like tricks: potentially interesting, but not really fundamentally useful. The second tip is actually useful…to me at least; I use it all the time.

As for the rest of the book, I have no idea if it’s any good or not. When I get some time to read it, I’ll let you know. With designers like Amy Franceschini, Jeremy Abbett, Florian Fangohr, and Frank Kolodziej, it certainly looks promising.

Anyway, here are some scans I made of my tips as they appear in the book: [1] [2] [3] [4].
