A Design Manual
This book focuses on the basic essentials of generic 2-dimensional design- helping readers think about and explore ways of approaching their work in their chosen design field. Often using common-place illustrative materials, this book first explores each of the elements of design individually, then explains the principles of design, and finally, shows how elements and principles are combined in the design "process." Artists and designers in any field.
