TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
For a quick course and a quick read, try The Non-Designer's Design Book by Robin
Williams (no, not *that* Robin Williams). Ms. Williams explains, simply, and
with lots of visual examples, the hows, whys, and why nots of designing hard
copy layouts. She may have written a book on designing for the Web too, but I
don't know for sure.
