For anyone trying to communicate in a new language, one has to first gain a complete understanding of its fundamentals; the ABC’s of that language—definitions, functions, and usage. New in paperback, The Language of Graphic Design provides graphic design students and practitioners with an in-depth understanding of the fundamental elements and principles of their language—graphic design—what they are, why they are important, and how to use them effectively. Organized by the building blocks of the graphic design language, this reference includes work by some of the most successful and renowned practitioners from around the world and how they have applied these fundamental principles to their work. By examining both student and professional work, this comprehensive handbook is a more meaningful, memorable, and inspiring reference tool for novice design students, as well as young designers starting their careers.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Paris Diderot Université’s logotype is literally based on an “X marks the spot” graphic representation or, in this case, the intersection of two visual elements or lines creating a singular point. Additionally, the dots of the lowercase i’s in the words Paris and Diderot are shared to create a visual focal point and integration between the two words, providing a much stronger and cohesive unity to the overall message.
- Catherine Zask, Paris, France
