    I gotta point out again, A storyboard is different from a webpage mockup. While you can use sketched page mockups in a storyboard, what you should be showing is the file structure of the site itself,...

    did you check the links in the frequently discussed topics thread? I know that Jeff Fisher's list is pretty comprehensive and is broken down into categories... check out the book lists here:

    hope that helps some.

      Despite it's title, most of this book is interview with 'old school' masters, and mostly copy writers:

      http://www.amazon.com/Cutting-Edge-A.../dp/9812445579

      Still, I think it's a great book at getting to the essence of great advertising: great copy married to great execution. I like how the big questions are framed by chapters (eg: when to use illustration instead of photos) and all done in the interview process. And the scope of the book is more international than many. FWIW.
