Professional sharePoint 2010 Branding and User interface Design

When it comes to working with SharePoint, there always seems to be a gap between developers and designers. To make the SharePoint user interface really look nice requires a designer who is comfortable with design theory and traditional web technologies and has the ability to deal with topics that are traditionally handled by developers. When you first look at trying to brand a SharePoint site, it can often seem like an insurmountable task; designing for SharePoint is different from designing for your own website or your own custom code. Designing for SharePoint involves overriding and adjusting a design to fit within someone else’s code — in this case, Microsoft’s
out-of-the-box SharePoint code. But don’t be alarmed. This book aims to provide you with all the knowledge and techniques you need to bridge the gap.
