About the Author:

Gary Olsen is the media designer at Hardie Interactive, a Dubuque, Iowa, firm specializing in the development of interactive CD-ROMs.

From Library Journal:

Budding multimedia designers will profit most from media designer Olsen's (Getting Started in Computer Graphics, 1989; North Light, 1993; reprint) competent handbook, a weighty primer for graphic artists increasingly drawn to multimedia's grand potential. Olsen delves into differences between print and electronic design; tells how to find a complete team of programmers, musicians, and writers; explains how to add music, sound, and video; and pitches some of the best ways to reproduce, package, and price the end result. Sparkling visuals and snappy text add to Olsen's liberal sprinkling of reality-check sidebars and profiles, delightful sidetracks that not only seek to engage readers in selected technical issues but also to draw them in closer still with tales of an inspiring assortment of artists who took the multimedia plunge?and never looked back. Olsen's triumph is a scrumptious treat for the eyes. Highly recommended for all graphic design and computer collections.?Geoff Rotunno, "Tri-Mix" magazine, Goleta, Cal.
