DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Two-Color Graphics is the latest installment in Rockport's series that includes Minimal Graphics, Touch Graphics, Large Graphics, Small Graphics, and Color Graphics. Two-color graphics offer a range of effects from somber and elegant to edgy and bold. More importantly, they're inexpensive to print, which perhaps explains why two-color printing is so widely used. Despite its popularity, however, two-color printing has a stigma of looking cheap compared to four-color pieces. This book puts that myth to rest by showing how dynamic effects can be achieved with simple, inexpensive two-color printing. Besides its simplicity, it has a style all its own, which can convey sophistication, elegance, and integrity. Included is a "color finder" section designed to show readers a variety of color combinations for various projects. Each featured project is also shown in thumbnail size in 15 to 20 different two-color combinations.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Offers insight and information to help design students apply their skills to the commercial industry. Graphic design is a fast growing industry with thousands of new designers and students joining its ranks every year. The explosion of the graphic design field has resulted in the release of hundreds of new books, with subjects ranging from logo design to web design, design history to design criticism; today there are very few subjects related to the industry that have not been written about in one form or another. While the wealth of information and resources available to the graphic designer is extensive, it makes it hard to gain an overall perspective of graphic design and its practical applications in the field, as the content and subject matter of most books is very specialized. Design educators, especially at the collegiate level, have an increasingly difficult task of teaching a well-rounded course in graphic design, as they have to pull curriculum ideas from many sources, and require the students to purchase numerous texts. The Complete Graphic Designer is that well-rounded course in graphic design. It is not an instructional “how to” book, nor will it feature a series of suggested curriculum or problems for designers or students to solve. Rather, this book will be a concise overview of the many facets of graphic design, such as communication theory and why it is important; various types of problems that designers confront on a daily basis; and the considerations that must be made when trying to solve those visual problems. In addition, it features prominent designers and design firms that are renown for work in a certain type of design, and frequent “sidebars” or articles that include useful information on graphic design. This book provides a complete an comprehensive look at what graphic design is and what it means to be a graphic designer from an applied perspective, with chapters including Design for Communication, The Design Process, Page Layout, Visual Problems, Corporate Identity, and Branding.
