5.0 out of 5 stars Design index 1 Jan 2011
By Book fiend VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
I bought this for my son who designs websites and he tells me it is incredibly useful as a working tool for all sorts of design projects. Not necessarily something you can't live without, but nonetheless a very useful extra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource 6 April 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I discovered design basics index while doing a college project as part of my graphic design course. I wish I had found out about these books right at the start of my studies. Each book is full of basic, yet essential information. They cover everything you need to know about designing posters, brochures and leaflets. The books cover the colour palette, the grid system, typography, composition, the design process and more. I cannot stress enough just how invaluable these books are. Brilliant!

As a budding designer, this series of books is a jolt of stimulating air!
No bewildering and incomplete tutorials, just inspiring visual stuff.
Jim is such a brilliant communicator and artistic mind that one cannot help but be totally seduced and informed by his vivid passion.
