This book is a delight for aspiring graphic designers. It contains truly inspirational tips for creativity and lots of examples of real graphic design.

Format: Paperback
I ordered this book thinking that it would give me some insight into graphic design. However, upon receiving it, I was very dissapointed with the content. Containing mostly text, it offers no visuals or examples of good graphic design.

6 of 11 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 11 Aug. 1999
Format: Hardcover
After reading and reviewing this book I began to realize different styles and understanding of design. The book is filled with full color illustrations and is packed with useful information on design. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in graphic design. I use it to refer to for examples of design in print, web pages, multimedia and many others. Not only are the illustrations a stimulation for creativity, but the content and guidance in the text is well worth the cost.

great starting point for formalizing/mainstreaming process 14 July 2000
By Shelley Gammon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A lot of time is wasted in the creative business just doodling and waiting for one's muse to pop in and show us the light. This book takes the sloppy creative process and pretty much streamlines it into a more productive method of thinking things out and solving problems.
While there are examples of real creative work, the book focuses more on process than one product. If you're constantly living on mental post-it notes and flying by the seat of your pants when coming up with new ideas, this book might just be the ticket for you to get the creative process more organized. I have seen a few reviews that cited a problem with the size of the font used in the book... I held the pages of the book up to my computer monitor and find that the font used on this webpage is actually smaller than that used in the book... so if you can read this page, you can read the book. :-)

The book of all books 26 Feb. 2003
By Ema - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had been looking for a book about creativity, I wanted to understand the process more, and hopefully increase my productivity. This book was one of 12 that I bought related to the design and creativity area, and was by far the best I've read yet. It gives so much information about the process of idea generation that even I understand it more now (and I've been doing it for 4 years). I have already used the advice on handling clients to great success, and I'm reading the book a second time round.
This book is a MUST for all designers at all levels!!
Enjoy

definatly not a picture book 11 Dec. 2003
By K. Dogu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be very helpful in getting you to think of the box. Instead of being like a picture book with not much information, it tells you how to come up with ideas and explains the process of making a good design. This is a great book to have if you already have those picture books with just designs and need something to help you with actually creating your own designs.

A good process primer 3 April 2000
By Todd M. Ziaja - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mr. Oldach does a great job of putting into words ideas, thoughts and tangents that I always wanted to capture in words throughout my career, but now I dont't have to. Mark insightfully outlines the design process as a launchpad for creative solutions, not a rigid, constricting container. If your a designer, a must have.

A real world book 9 July 2004
By Clayfish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Unlike design books filled w/ eye-candy & no direction on processes, Mark Oldach steers the reader through well defined concepts & thoughts. An excellent book for all designers who wish to communicate through design.
