About this title


Lack of budget. Lack of colour. Near-impossible deadlines. Bad photography. The list of constraints that designers face can go on and on. In this book, designers share their war stories and offer solid advice to their peers on how to survive when their hands seem tied. In four sections, this book identifies the key areas of constraint in graphic design projects: budgets, deadlines, client relationships and artwork. A fifth section addresses other, more unexpected limitations, like computer failure or loss of key personnel. The information in this book is collected from graphic designers at all levels, making it a true forum for designers to share experiences and solutions.


"When you have a good rationale for your design solution, you can employ it to both explain your idea as well as defend your design solution." "You must be able to manage expectations. You can have it cheap. You can have it fast. You can have it good. But you can't have it cheap, fast and good. Pick any two."

Store Description

Originally started as an amateur venture, Seagull Books has grown into a knowledgable and reputable on-line book vendor. Our inventory is growing all the time, and we are constantly updating our stock with the latest finds. Whilst we do not currently offer a book tracing service, we are always happy to hear from customers looking for a particular title, and may just be able to help. We specialise in out-of-print books - particularly paperbacks - and never cease to be amazed at what is no longer considered worth publishing! Many of our customers clearly share that view.
