Making the Most of Web Design Patterns
In Chapter 1—Customer-Centered Web Design, we explained why designing for the customer experience is crucial to a Web site's success. We also introduced the notion of Web design patterns, a powerful conceptual framework for building compelling, effective, and easy-to-use Web sites. In this chapter we explain patterns in depth.
We do not expect you to read through all of the patterns in this book from start to finish. Instead, we show you ways to explore the patterns so that you can quickly find the right patterns for your needs.
