Grant's Copywriting and Web Portfolio banner
New Media Library
The experience of working in web and digitisation teams has introduced me to new-ish subjects such as:
Working as a Web Copywriter and Web Content Editor has also caused me to re-think my approach to copywriting and graphic design, so that the web copy I write, and the websites I design, are always user-friendly. To keep fully up-to-date with developments in these key areas, I often read books, magazines and websites from 'the web canon'.

Included below is a brief selection of some of the books and websites that I use as reference guides, when planning, writing, organising, designing and publishing content for the web. It is through reading books and websites such as these, combined with my hands-on experience of building websites, that I have magically evolved into a loft-dwelling über-geek who possesses a virus-like passion for the web.

Websites
Listed below are the web usability and information architecture websites that I like to drop in on sometimes, so as to stay up-to-date with all the latest developments.


Website Accessibility and the UK Disability Discrimination Act (DDA)
With Part III of the DDA becoming law in October 2004, it seems very likely that this legislation will soon affect all 'information service providers' - a test case for web design is sure to hit the UK courts before too long. Logically, this must apply to websites. So that my websites will meet the requirements of this legislation, I have worked hard to ensure that my sites are fully accessible. I have also read books about web accessibility, and keep up-to-date with postings on the W3 Consortium website.

Designing with Web Standards
Through following the ongoing debate regarding the web's evolution to a set of accepted design standards that meet with all accessibility requirements, I am now experimenting with building websites that do not use tables. The main information source that I have been reading regarding this matter, is Jeffrey Zeldman's book, 'Designing with Web Standards'. In this book, web design guru Zeldman claims that '99.9% of websites are obselete'. By following Zeldman's advice concerning the power of combining XHMTL and CSS, I aim to improve the design and performance of all websites that I build.
