OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS BOOK! i am a high school art teacher looking for a starting point on how to revamp my graphic design class. Although this book is college level and the illustrations by the students are amazing, i use the exercises to get my students to really challenge themselves and get their creative juices flowing. I especially like the layout of how the author gives the problem on one page, and then shows how each student chose to solve the problem on the following pages. Every exercise in this book is challenging, creative, and most important, fun to do. i tried them myself. it was interesting to see the results from each student and how different they were. i wish i had problems like this when i was a graphic design major in college. i highly recommend this book if you are an educator looking for great visual problem solving projects.

I was looking for a basic tutorial on graphic design, and this isn't it. However, it has many lessons on how to think "out of the box" regarding graphic design and layout. I'm a software engineer looking to improve my web layout and icons/logos used in my software. This book forces me to think in new ways, so I'm glad that I got it.

Inspiring, educational, and beautiful to look at. There really needs to be more books like this that help communicate the breath of possible visual solutions to design problems. Highly recommended.

If you have a degree in graphic design and feel like doing the boring assignments over again, buy this book. Also note that the exercise spaces are too limiting, I found some of the boxes too small (not that i did the exercises, ha!).

HASH(0xa8310b64) out of 5 stars Novel idea but flawed by its limited content Jan. 13 2006
By Hollander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before buying this book you have to realise this is merely an exercise book. The amount of explanation or theory is extremely limited. And neither they elaborate on the student examples they chose for their book. Nor do they explain why some solutions might be better than others. The exercises itself could be more challenging, they really seem to be aimed at first year students. You will have to buy at least a book on graphic design principles/theory to put the exercises in this book into the right context. Nothing wrong with that, but they 'forgot' to mention all that on the back cover, so to speak.

It's a nice idea, but its execution is flawed and way too limited to be the stroke of genious that some reviewers want you to believe.

HASH(0xa831cbdc) out of 5 stars It's a nice book in concept May 18 2005
By C. Pacheco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Yes, it has some good exercises for students. However, it was not what I expected because they did not really explain concepts and graphic principles along the way. Also, it would have been better to label this a guidebook and for it to be spiral-bounded to add to its ease of use.

It only has a few exercises that are really good for a college-level class (a visual communications class).
