    Book details


This fifth edition of Graphic Design School has been enlarged to include information on digital imaging techniques, motion graphics and designing for the web and small-screen applications. The book is organized into two main sections, ‘principles’ and ‘practice’. The first section deals with the fundamentals of design, such as composition, hierarchy, layout, typography, grid structure, colour and so on. The second section puts these basics into practice, and gives information about studio techniques and production issues relevant to a number of different graphic design disciplines. The last part of the second section provides an overview of some of the different career choices open to students entering the graphic design field.

    Good book my step son loves the textbook. He was fortunate to meet the author when he gave a lecture at Southampton University. Authors should actually follow through and meet the people using their books.

    Good basic book on graphic design which gives you all you need to know about the fundamental areas of graphic design. Use it as part of my resources in teaching graphic design

    I am a graphic design student at university and I love this book! It's great to refer back to incase I didn't make enough notes in lectures or great to use if concepts arnt grasped in class as it's easy to read and learn from ! Would highly recommend and already have done to so many friends. I have found it cheaper through this seller than high street stores so was very happy to wait a couple of days for delivery.
