Sexy Web Design Inspiration

Reading Sexy Web Design by Elliot Jay Stocks has given me a lot to consider in developing websites, as well as a lot of good inspiration and resource links. Therefore, I thought I’d quickly collect and catalog all the links that Elliot gives in his book for my future reference. Of course, these links are available freely on the web, so everyone can benefit from them. However, you won’t get the full benefit unless you read about them in the context in which they are written in the book, so head on over to and pick yourself up a copy.

As the majority of the links in the books are provided for inspiration, I’ll leave those in order below. However, there are some really excellent online articles and tutorials, as well as printed books that Elliot references in his book. Those are more relevant for learning about good design, and I’ll post those first.



Chapter 1: Interfaces Are Sexy

Chapter 2: Research


Collection Tools

Chapter 3: Structure

Tools to Create Structures (Sitemaps and the like)

Chapter 4: Navigation and Interaction

Chapter 5: Aesthetics

Chapter 6: Deliverables

This is a great resource for me, but all the credit goes to Elliot Jay Stocks for his work wrangling up these links. I’m just glad I could learn from his experience. Be sure to visit his site for more goodness.
