Foundations of Graphic Design.
Three experienced graphic designers who are currently on the faculty at Pratt Institute have collaborated in the production of this informative and practical resource. Beginning with the basics of good design and the importance of visual communication, the authors lead us through the world of the graphic designer. Attention is directed to the role of vision and creativity in the selection of tools, techniques and marketing procedures. Almost every page of this book presents color or black-and-white photographs and drawings that visually educate the reader about the design professions. The illustrations include an ingenious timeline of the development of communications from 30,000 BC to the present. Suited for students from grades ten and up, the authors have incorporated individual and/or classroom project suggestions in each chapter. Career guidance and information about many of America's outstanding graphic designers is also included. Recommended for high school and university design department libraries.
