Format: Taschenbuch
Back in 1990, Robin Williams wrote a book entitled The Mac is Not a Typewriter that became quite popular. Its purpose was clear. All the little tricks and techniques that worked when people used typewriters needed to change when Macs and PCs replaced typewriters. For instance, on most typewriters, every letter took up the same amount of space on paper, so to distinguish the end of a sentence, a double space after a period made sense. On computers, however, most fonts printed with characters that took up varying amounts of space. A capital "M," for instance, was wider than a little "i." When that was true, that same double space looked oddly out of place and had to go.

This book, published twenty years later, serves the same role for our more technologically sophisticated generation. Most people now know that they shouldn't doublespace after periods, but they're confused about all the complexities of laying out documents and web pages with graphics and tables. How can I place that picture so it looks good on a page? What colors go best together? What fonts, out of dozens, should I use for text and headings in this business report? The bad news is that, as our computers allow us to do more, document and web page creation has gotten much more complex. The good news is that books like this one can help clear up that complexity.

But you may be asking, "Why should I pay $40 (retail) for this book?" If all you create in a typical year is a family newsletter at Christmas, then maybe you shouldn't. Spend the money on presents instead. But if you work or volunteer for a business or non-profit organization, the cost/benefit ratio is different.

The Best Graphic Design Book I've Ever Seen 8. Dezember 2010
Von Bryan Newman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
About three quarters of the way through this book I looked at my wife and said "You know the only difference between this book and the graphic arts classes I took in college?" She of course answered "What? you managed to finish the book?" (Yeah, that's the support I get, I did get a degree in another field but that is a different story.) The right answer was that in college we spent hours doing project after project, then spending hours doing peer reviews, which were invaluable. But everything else from several years worth of graphic arts classes could be distilled out and put into this book. Literally this book is a bachelors degree's worth of information in a book, minus the years of hands on experience.

Now this is not to say that you can replace graphic arts degree with just this book. But this book will give you a great overview of Graphic Design and I can see it being a great help to a beginning web designer or newsletter publisher.

This book has very high quality, both in construction and design. The paper is thick and glossy and the layout is wonderful. I have never seen such a great collection of inspiring design examples. Page after page is visually arresting, and the points and ideas are beautifully illustrated. The writing is great, clear and engaging.

I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a resource to help on design projects or, like me, looking for a refresher. Absolutely the best graphic design text I've seen.

Excellent Book! 24. April 2010
Von V. Hutson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This is one of the best books I have found on graphic design. The authors have provided a wealth of information and beautiful examples that guide the reader in the process of designing for print, web, or multimedia. While I do have a background in art--it was not in graphic design so this book has provided me with a lot of valuable information. I also like how the authors have kept the chapters short and to the point. The book contains a total of 16 chapters that cover a wide range of material. Below I have listed the chapters I found the most useful based on my own experience and knowledge--but the book contains a lot of other valuable material that covers brainstorming, the elements & principles of design, color basics,infographics, storyboarding, multimedia components, designing for the web, and printing.

Here are some of the chapters I found the most useful:

1. Chapter 3: I Need to Design this Today. It includes "the works-every-time-layout" that, like the name implies--would work every time. This quick recipe will come in very handy for quick designs.

2. Chapter 4: Layout Sins. It includes "the 13 Amateur Errors," which covers a variety of typical errors made by many of use that do not have a graphic design background.

3. Chapter 6: What is a Grid? This provides a useful way to help organize your design.

4. Chapter 7: Layout. This covers where to put your type & visuals for impact.

5. Chapter 8: Type. Once again since my art background did not include graphic design I have been winging this area for most of my life. The authors provide a great foundation and good recommendations on what to do.

6. Chapter 10: Adding Visual Appeal. This chapter deals with working with photos and illustrations.

In short, the authors have packed a ton of valuable information in the 273 pages of this book. Their examples are beautiful and the whole book is very visually appealing. Excellent book!

Pretty Good, But Don't Buy If For The Hype 21. Dezember 2011
Von M. Jensen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
First off I should state that this book is a solid and generally informative read. Is it a five star blockbuster and must have for any designer in any field? Not in my opinion.

What's good in this book is the logical flow of information. There are some gold nuggets in the early chapters especially. As someone working in the web design field I can appreciate the realistic viewpoint of the "works every time layout". All of the basics are covered in this book as advertised. Later chapters do have some good information as well, but seem to lose steam.

What's not good in this book is the fact that it loses momentum. Again, it's a good book, I just wanted more. More in depth analysis of why a layout works and why it doesn't. There is some of this in the early chapters and it is done very well, however I really wanted more than is presented. Also some chapters seemed to be going through the motions for me and I found myself skimming them out of annoyance. Lastly, some of the advice presented to web designers is questionable, i.e. designing for 800px by 600px is not a good practice as only a very small percentage of internet users have this monitor size. The advice given to learn to design websites in flash as opposed to HTML is potentially life threatening.

Other than that it is a solid book and I would probably buy it again if I had the chance (I just wouldn't read all of it). Good yes. Five star, "my mind is swelling with knowledge", "lets go forth and design" good... no.
3 stars may be a reaction to all the careless 5 stars out there I admit it, but still I stand by it.

Do not buy this excellent book as a Kindle Book 16. Juli 2011
Von Firedrake - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is an excellent book - but don't buy it as a Kindle Book - although there is a website referenced in the introduction Kindle readers are not allowed to access it according to the very disappointing response from Elsevier publishing who host the site.

The Amazon Kindle team are still trying to come up with a response at the time of writing this review.

The book is comprehensive, stimulating and offers very sensible and practical guidelines for every aspect of graphic design. Highly recommended as a real book or electronic reading device that supports colour illustrations

For beginners, yes, but experienced pros can still learn a thing or two 20. Mai 2010
Von The Bee Bee - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
There have been a number of "for beginners" graphic design books published over the years, but few are as spot on as "White Space is Not Your Enemy: A Beginner's Guide to Communicating Visually through Graphic, Web and Multimedia Design." What Kim Golombisky and Rebecca Hagen do so well is provide an end-to-end overview of the design process--along with plenty of examples along the way--so that even the most inexperienced designer can truly understand the rules of the road to help them meet their particular challenges. The authors never talk down to the reader, nor do they bore with self-important posturing on the art of design. It's a good read--and highly recommended.
