HASH(0x9c465204) out of 5 stars Simple and pure creative sparks here... Feb. 13 2008

Format: Paperback
As a budding designer, this series of books is a jolt of stimulating air!
No bewildering and incomplete tutorials, just inspiring visual stuff.
Jim is such a brilliant communicator and artistic mind that one cannot help but be totally seduced and informed by his vivid passion.
Simple and pure creative sparks here...

This is the second book set I bought from this author and I've enjoyed them both. This set contains the updated book of color along with two others. Great reference books and fun to flip through.

Both my daughter (a regional marketing analyst) and I (a high school graphics design teacher) share several of the Jim Krause texts, and we are very satisfied using them as think-tank references.

I was a starting out designer that needed a little inspiration to help me out. This book introduces some really good fundamental ideas for any designer. The internet and this book kit together can make you a much better designer. If nothing else, it may help open your eyes up to some new design ideas. I recommend this for any up-and-coming designer or anyone else that wants to begin exploring the field.

I was looking everywhere for this design book package. However, it was too expensive to buy wherever i went.
Then I came to Amazon and found it used for less than 50% of it's retail value. I bought it expecting some damage and BOOM.... It arrived to my house BRAND NEW. Definitely great user to buy from. :)
