GRAPHIC DESIGN BASICS combines design principles, history, and current technology to present students a comprehensive introduction to the field of graphic design. Keeping pace with rapid changes in the field of design, while maintaining a consistently high academic quality, the text emphasizes design structure and visual perception with a wide range of visuals from throughout design history, as well as the latest contemporary illustrations and electronic designs. Each chapter provides assignments with student sample solutions, as well as critique sections to help students apply the concepts and assess their work. This market leader's interwoven combination of concept, history, and practice is rarely found in other Graphic Design texts.

"GRAPHIC DESIGN BASICS very clearly steps the students through the basics of graphic design, both approaching from a practical and conceptual level."
