Un poco desactualizado, pero contiene mucha información sobre principios de diseño en el entorno digital, ya sea sobre legibilidad, color o tipografía.

A comprehensive overview of all the people/fields that go into design for the web. He discusses the roles each contributor plays and lays out why people in different fields think on certain terms--extremely useful for facilitating collaboration!
