Being a creative designer is often about coming up with unique design solutions. Unfortunately, when the basic rules of design are ignored in an effort to be distinctive, design becomes useless. In language, a departure from the rules is only appreciated as great literature if recognition of the rules underlies the text. Graphic design is a "visual language," and brilliance is recognized in designers whose work seems to break all the rules, yet communicates its messages clearly.This book is a fun and accessible handbook that presents the fundamentals of design in lists, tips, brief text, and examples. Chapters include Graphic Design: What It Is; What Are They and What Do They Do?; 25 Basic Rules of Good Design; Form and Space-The Basics; Color Fundamentals; Choosing and Using Type; The World of Imagery; Putting it All Together? Essential Layout Concepts; The Right Design Choices: 20 Reminders for Working Designers; and Breaking the Rules: When and Why to Challenge all the Rules of this Book.

Описание: Japanese graphic design for advertising boasts a tradition like that of no other country in terms of age, inventive, colour, drawing and, of course, calligraphy, with Latin, Chinese and Japanese characters nearly always appearing side by side. The abundance of signs and colours and the eurhythmy of images and words in these posters all draw on ancient tradition but are also clearly projected into the future, and nearly always ahead of the times. The catalogue illustrates the most significant works produced over the last ten years by both the great masters and younger talents. It includes posters selected by a committee comprising the two masters of contemporary graphic design Kazumasa Nagai and Shin Matsunaga, who also designed the cover.

This book is a complete, introductory guide to various forms of research and writing in design--and how they explain visuals and can be visualized. These pages address communication on various levels and to all audiences:
