Size matters: effective graphic design for large amounts of information
Size Matters tackles the challenges that designers face when organizing large amounts of information. Projects such as company reports, magazine and book design exhibitions, catalogues, timetables and directories all invoke particular design questions that must be resolved. This book will inspire designers to take on large projects with confidence-chaperts explore navigation and hierarchies placement of images for overall rhythm of viewing, management of volume of material and systems for processing it, as well as the physical considerations of format: whetehr this is the information architecture of the web, placement of exhibition stands or print limitations in book design. Using illustrated essays, real-world examples, pull-out interviews with leading design figures and extended captions, Size Matters allows for first-hand experiences and detailed practical specifics, providing the reader with the skills, inspiration, and knowledge to succeed with projects that can at first seem daunting.
