What is Web 2.0 anyway? In reality, Web 2.0 is the second coming of web services that put an emphasis on collaboration and sharing between users of the systems. Another clear aspect of Web 2.0 sites, although not mandatory, is the clean design of these sites. Big clear buttons, less columns, extremely simple interfaces. All this makes these applications much more user friendly and useful. I was going to set out to write a Web 2.0 Design Guide, and I still might, however, based on some searching on the internet, I decided I would first compile a list of excellent resources you can already use today! Please comment below on your favorites, and any other additional resources you would like to see!
- Web 2.0 how-to design style guide
- Web 2.0 Design in a nutshell
- Web 2.0 Design Kit
- Web 2.0 Color Palette
- Web 2.0 style buttons
Anyway, this list should get you started on the path to Web 2.0 greatness. From the overall, to how to actually make the buttons, all is covered in the links above. Hope this helps you on your quest to enhancing your web sites! Ok, time to get back to my Wii, I’m approaching pro status on boxing!
