Format: Paperback
This book gives a clear accounting of all the essentials of design from interiors to graphics. The principles are explained in a clear cross-referenced format that makes studying and researching much easier. A definite must have for the design and graphics student library.

When designing objects, interfaces or products there are many factors to consider. This book acts a great reference to those factors. You can usually open the book, pick 3 pages (each page is its own idea) and use those to design something solid.

Buy this now, whether you are experienced at design or just starting out.

This was the textbook for a course. It is well laid out and has a lot of interesting information, but it is more a reference book.
