Drupal for Designers: the Book

Coming in August 2012: The culmination of a year's worth of writing about Drupal Design.

This book, which combines the first three Drupal for Designers guides with new and updated material, a more logical flow and better grammar, will be released in August of 2012. In it, I cover everything from planning and estimating projects to UX, visual design, theming and site building in Drupal. From O'Reilly:

With this book, site builders and designers familiar with HTML and CSS get a compilation of three short guides—Planning Drupal Projects, Design and Prototyping for Drupal, and Drupal Development Tricks for Designers—at a price that’s lower than these three books combined. You also get special "director’s material" you won’t find anywhere else.

  • Plan and estimate your project by discovering your client’s goals and audience perceptions 
  • Choose the right modules for your project, and learn about several go-to modules 
  • Learn strategies for sketching, wireframing, and designing effective layouts 
  • Use LessCSS to organize CSS and help you theme your site more efficiently 
  • Discover how to work with Drupal on the command line 
  • Set up a development environment, and learn how to collaborate on code with others 
  • Learn the basics of Git—the free, open source version control system
