This book is the most compact and lucid handbook available outlining the basic principles of layout, typography, colour usage and space. 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 recognised in designers whose work seems to break all the rules, yet communicates its messages clearly. This is a fun and accessible handbook that presents the fundamentals of design in lists, tips, brief text and examples. The chapters include Graphic Design: What It Is; What Are They and What Do They Do?, Choosing and Using Type and Breaking the Rules: When and Why to Challenge all the Rules of this Book.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good material, badly designed 11. September 2012
Von Designing Eva - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
We are considering using this book as a text for a design class. The publisher was totally unresponsive to my requests for a desk copy, a courtesy that is usually accorded to instructors so I got a PDF to preview but it was hard to read. So, I bought it and was surprised to find that the book was also very difficult to read. The caption type is about 5 point and the body text is fairly small and a light gray color. You need really good light to read the text.

While the information that I've struggled to read is good, the layout of the pages is crowded and does not have clear hierarchy. It is ironic that a book on design does not follow the principles. A good example of where following the rules instead of breaking them would have been in order. It tries to get too much information into too small a space. Maybe should have had twice as many pages, but then it would cost more and it is one of the least expensive design texts available.

I will not be recommending it as a required text for these reasons.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Good, but... 26. April 2014
Von Jon Brandt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Great textbook, but riddled with so many typographical errors it's unbelievable. One single run of spell check would have fixed most, if not all, of them. I really struggle to believe the writer knows what they're talking about when every other spread has an incredibly obvious error on it. Not only are they grammatical in nature, but there are a few times when there is an illustration that explains some rather complicated concept, and the caption/explanation is explaining the concept in the wrong order or paired with the wrong illustration entirely. You have to read it with your thinking cap on to filter through the errors and get at what the writer is actually meaning to say, rather than what he actually says.

Good material. Poor presentation. I hope any subsequent editions fix the stupid errors so readers aren't left bewildered.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Graphic Design textbook 9. Dezember 2012
Von Matt Jarvis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Good Content but graphic design needs improvement in typography.

The preface with the beige text on a black ground at the small size is extremely hard to read which is a shame because of the subject matter. The Introduction is readable. The book has sections on Form & Space, Color, Typography, Image, and Layout that have really good content but the text with the examples is also too small. The information is good for teaching but the text is a good example to students on why you have to consider the purpose for your text, apparently it was too cut down on the ammount of pages and price.

Terminology in Graphic Design is interchangeable so when there is a difference it is customizable but the information in this book does a good job of explaining the subjects it discusses so that students can adjust to their situation. The chapters on Form & Space and Color are real good. Personally the 20 Rules and later How to Break Them should be gone over with students so the teacher can put their own input in on them. They are not necessarily wrong but can be misinterpreted or misunderstood.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must-Have 12. September 2012

This book is Awesome (yes, with a capital A). I've studied graphic design for quite some time, and I HIGHLY "Design Elements" to any level designer. If you're just getting interested in the topic, picking up a copy of Samara's works is the way to go. The layout is fun and intriguing, while the subject matter is highly engaging yet informative, providing a comprehensive overview of basic design principles. Moreover, inspiration is plentifully throughout the length of the text, as each chapter contains spectacular examples demonstrating the topic-at-hand.

Buy it -- Read it -- Highlight the livin' crap out of it -- Enjoy it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Visual Treat 10. Oktober 2007
Von Nathan Packer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
From the design elements of a unique placement of page numbers in the margin to very colorful representations of design elements, this book is well-worth the price. Far to often, other books attempt to explain color rendering and shape meanings without investing in professional demonstrations of the concepts. The mechanics of type, the texture of form and space, and composition strategies are well presented. A veteran graphics designer will find this book a refreshing creativity stimulant, and the new designer will find this book a genesis of ideas. I reach for this book whenever I need some brain/eye design candy.

Ok, the book was not perfect. My technical communication background is the source of my quibble with the author's choice to use a light gray type in the body text against a white page. When the reader struggles with the difficulty of the read, there is a reduction in the transfer of information. It is as if to say, look only at the color because all the information is in the graphics - yet there was good information presented in the body text.
