The Elements of Graphic Design has been wholly revised and expanded to feature a new dimension of inspiring and counterintuitive ideas to thinking about graphic design relationships.
The Elements of Graphic Design, Second Edition is now in full colour in a larger, 8 x 10-inch trim size, and accommodates 40 percent more content and over 750 images to give a boost to and better clarify the concepts in this thought-provoking resource.
The second one edition also includes a new section on web design and new discussions of modularity, framing, motion and time, rules of randomness, and a lot of quotes supported by images and biographies.
This pioneering work provides designers, art directors, and students―irrespective of experience―with a unique approach to successful design.
Veteran designer and educator Alex. W. White has assembled a wealth of information and examples in his exploration of what makes visual design stunning and easy to read.
Readers will discover White’s four elements of graphic design, including how to: define and reveal dominant images, words, and concepts; use scale, color, and position to guide the viewer through levels of importance; employ white space as a significant component of design and not merely as background; and use display and text type for maximum comprehension and value to the reader.
Offering a new way to consider and use the four design elements, The Elements of Graphic Design is certain to inspire better design.
