A Book About Design: Complicated Doesn't Make It Good
Macmillan, Jun 1, 2005 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 144 pages
Design is all about the perception of size, shape, and color.
A fabulous and fun introduction to the concepts of design
A Book About Design: Complicated Doesn't Make It Good takes a most creative approach to introducing young (and not-so-young) readers to the fundamental elements of design. Using simple shapes, lines, and a sense of humor, this book explains why complicated doesn't make it good-and why that matters. Mark Gonyea opens up the world of design and makes it accessible to young artists and non-artists alike.
