Effective design inspiration for everyone, from crafters and artists to Sunday museum-goers.

Professional artists, photographers, gardeners, and even chefs and hosts trying to set a pretty table will welcome this user-friendly, handsome exploration of design principles and processes. Through hundreds of photographs, plus an accessible text, even the most abstract design concepts, such as rhythm and balance, become easy to visualize and understand. Find out how to manipulate visual elements, work within the design space, create attractive symmetrical arrangements, establish a focal point, and much more. The sheer number and variety of images that illustrate each concept make it possible for even the most design-challenged beginner to visualize the principles and put them into practice. Examples of good design range from ceramics, jewelry, architecture, and painting to clothing design, hair styling, gardening, sushi, and vintage movie posters. Plenty of easy yet imaginative guided exercises allow you to experiment with each new principle on the spot. Every page offers delight, inspiration, and instruction.
