Book Information


Title: Language of New Media Design
Subtitle: Theory and Practice
Written By: Radan Martinec
Theo van Leeuwen

The Language of New Media Design is an innovative new textbook presenting
methods on the design and analysis of a variety of non-linear texts, from
websites to CD-Roms. Integrating theory and practice, the book explores a
range of models for analyzing and constructing multimedia products. For
each model the authors outline the theoretical background and demonstrate
usage from students' coursework, commonly available websites and other
multimedia products.

Assuming no prior knowledge, the book adopts an accessible approach to the
subject which has been trialled and tested on MA students at the London
College of Communication. Written by experienced authors, this textbook
will be an invaluable resource for students and teachers of new media
design, information technology, linguistics and semiotics.
