Alexander Dawson, one of our top writers here on Six Revisions, has recently finished his book Distinctive Design: A Practical Guide to a Useful, Beautiful Web published by Wiley. To celebrate, we’re giving away five paperback copies of his new book (listed at $39.99), which Wiley will kindly ship anywhere in the world. Read on to see how you can win one of these books.



About Distinctive Design

According to Alex, the book was based on an article he wrote here on Six Revisions called The Art of Distinction in Web Design.



The book is a solid in-depth guide to the world of UX design, exploring design theory, psychology and more to showcase how designers can make their sites work harder and better for their users.

It looks at theoretical subjects (like usability), practical subjects (like distinction in code) and underscores the importance of making the right information stand out.



Alex is a self-taught freelance web professional with more than 10 years of industry experience. He runs a consultancy firm HiTechy.

Give him your support by buying a copy of his book on Amazon.com or Wiley’s website. There are also three bonus chapters not in the book that you can download for free on Wiley’s website.
