"Web Site Design is Communication Design" is written for
practitioners, trainers, and students of Communication, Business,
Information Science and Media Design. 
This book is based on a series of case studies of web-site design
processes in smaller and larger organizations, including Amazon and
Microsoft. It offers a well-researched, reflective and thorough
analysis of the activities undertaken, in combination with practical,
real-life experiences of web-site designers and producers. It pays
attention to the often complicated organizational context that web
designers and producers have to work in, while they serve both bosses
and target groups to their best intents. The importance of careful
evaluation is stressed throughout the book and in the concluding
checklists, which guide the practitioner through the design process,
from initial idea through site maintenance and re-design.
