About the Author

Hello! My name is Christoph Kolloge. I work as a web designer and graphic designer in Hannover, Germany. By now, I have more than 12 years of experience in web design. In 2017, I decided to publish my findings from web design projects in the form of a book, because there was no compact book on web design yet. Then in September 2021, I published the Compact Guide to Web Design via as a paperback and via as an e-book.

Do you have questions about the book? Then send me an email at kolloge[at] Or contact me via my social media channels:
