This book is the perfect desk reference for anyone who designs or works with designers. It reduces the complexities of today's design work into seven basic elements: Research, Typography, Contrast, Layout, Grid Systems, Identity Design and Critique & Analysis. These seven fundamentals of design are examined separately in compelling chapters that show designers how to: Create dynamic layouts with visual tension and asymmetrical balance; Recognize and solve color problems; Use grids to design multiple pages of the same publication; Design memorable logos and logotypes; Every topic is explained through an analysis of good and bad examples, anecdotes and other instruction. The closing chapter discusses how all of the elements blend together; illustrated by a gallery of inspirational design work. A must for anyone who works in visual communication.
