Product Description

From Library Journal

Addressing readers interested in entering the fields of desktop publishing or graphic design, Boylston (graphic design, Savannah Coll. of Art & Design) offers a basic overview of many types of graphic design projects. Each clearly written chapter is organized into a section on practical matters, followed by figures with design examples and tips. Throughout, many valuable pointers are given on production. The text touches on the needs of clients but rarely provides details about the target audience for a given project. This book would be appropriate in public, secondary school, and community college libraries, but because it is more oriented toward general desktop publishing, it is not well suited for a fine arts or sophisticated graphic design library. Michael H. Bruno's Pocket Pal: A Graphic Arts Production Handbook (GATF, 2000. 18th ed.) may be useful to readers interested in basic questions of design and production, as will the many small, educational publications released by printer and paper companies, which go into some depth on everything from design to the paper-making process.

HASH(0x996b16a8) out of 5 stars Excellent overall reference Feb. 12 2010
By Chad M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent overall resource for many of the most common graphic and corporate design tasks facing full and part-time designers. The book itself exhibits good design principles (my cover is white, and much more presentable than the gray and red cover in the default thumbnail here on Amazon) and manages to convey potentially complex information by the use of annotated illustrations and images, which has saved time for me and enhanced my retention of the material covered.

The books is broken into 7 sections: Brochures, Packaging, Publications, Direct Mail, Large-scale Projects, Miscellaneous (which includes more forms, awards, buttons, and tickets), and general design considerations (such as typography, grids, composition, and working with illustrators, photographers, and printers).

Although this book is somewhat out of date (casettes, CD-ROMs, and VHS get a mention but DVDs do not), it's still an excellent book and one that I've referred to since I bought it back in 2002. The lone glaring omission is the lack of coverage regarding business cards, which would have been helpful even if it was sparsely covered.

I wish that the publisher and author would bring out another edition of this book. I'd buy it immediately.

Excellent and very much appreciated to able to 'retrieve' this important teaching tool - lost my original copy so this is pleasing especially as it is also an autographed copy. 5 stars.
