The Forgotten Web Standard: Graphic and Web Design

Mike Kus, a print designer gone web designer, believes that graphic design is an integral and often overlooked part of web design. He gave a talk at The Future of Web Design in London 2009 you can watch below or at vcasmo. Some of his talking points include bucking trends, typography, harnessing the power of images, color and imagining your site in print.

He also compiled a time-lapse video of his slide-making process, where you can see each slide's typography, graphics and textures develop.
