DESIGN BASICS is a best-selling text for the two-dimensional design course.

About the Author:

David A. Lauer is Emeritus Professor of Art at the College of Alameda.

Review:

"This book is very in-depth and clear in its approach to the design principles it addresses. In comparison to other books I have seen and used, this text takes more time in really explaining things and giving good visual examples."

"I found the image selection refreshing, they pushed the limits of what is presented in general foundations classes--the book becomes engaging!"

"In general, the writing is very engaging. This text is appealing, because the writing gets to the point quickly and generally makes the concepts of design quite understandable. I find the writing, combined with the selected images to be very motivational, stimulating the imagination easily toward creative thinking and artistic expression."

"I think the CD-ROM exercises, demonstrations, and question and answer activities are a great addition. The ArtExperience Fundamentals CD-ROM [now incorporated into ArtExperience Online] is a good tool for teaching these concepts."

"I really like the videos on the CD-ROM [now ArtExperience Online]; they are very informative and great for students to watch on their own time. . . . A great resource."
