About the Author:

Aaris Sherin is an educator, writer and designer based in New York City. She is currently assistant professor of graphic design at St. John's University in Queens, New York, where she teaches both history and studio classes. She holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from Rochester Institute of Technology.

Review:

"In this dynamic reference manual, Sherin (SustainAble: A Handbook of Materials and Applications for Graphic Designers and Their Clients) succinctly addresses all aspects of communication through color, providing many helpful tips and pointing out the accepted standards. Along the way, she demystifies color theory, unpacks the emotive qualities of color, and even discusses when and where a designer might break the rules. The guide is loaded with hundreds of examples of color used effectively in all sorts of design contexts, including package design, logos, advertising, web design, and information architecture. VERDICT: Students and beginning designers will learn the most from this book, but anyone who communicates visually will find it informative." — Library Journal
