About The Author

Linda Goin carries a B.F.A. in visual communications with a minor in business and marketing, and an M.A. in American History with a minor in the Reformation.

Accolades for her work include fifteen first-place Colorado Press Association awards, numerous fine art and graphic design awards, and interviews about content development with The Wall St. Journal, Chicago Tribune, Psychology Today, and L.A. Times. Linda is the author of Design for Web Developers: Colour and Layout for the Artistically Overwhelmed for DMXZone, and she writes on Web Design.
