Be in Patrick’s Next Book + Preorder the Handbook!

The deadline to submit your work to be in Patrick McNeil’s third volume in his Web Designer’s Idea Book series is rapidly approaching! Here are details about how to submit your web design work to be included in the next book:

The third book in the Web Designer’s Idea Book series is in production now and is set for release in early 2013 (around February). I am currently writing the book and my call for entries is open, so head over and submit your sites!

Each of my idea books features a secondary focus or topic. The first featured a range of inspiration based on colors and color pallets. The second introduced the various principles of design along with inspiration and real life samples, it also had an introduction on how to safely and effectively leverage inspiration. For the third volume I plan to focus on technical developments that have been radical forces in shaping the landscape of design. Among these will be topics such as responsive design, custom typefaces, CMSs and CSS3.

And we just saw that Patrick’s next book, The Designer’s Web Handbook, is up for pre-order in MyDesignShop! Preorder it now at a discount, and it’ll arrive in your mailbox when it goes on sale April 30. It includes:
