This book is clearly, concisely, and succinctly written. Explaining each of the four principles of design - Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, and Proximity - with simplicity, it enables even the most inexperienced beginner to understand how visual design works and how to begin creating his or her own winning designs! This book is a joy to read, and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to become a better designer.
