Book Description

5 Aug 1993
THE DESIGNER'S HANDBOOK is the essential reference in graphic design colleges throughout the world. This best-selling book has now been completely revised to reflect the sweeping changes that have occurred in the graphic design industry over the past decade. Today, even the smallest design studio is likely to use computers, and new typesetting and colour separation methods influence every aspect of the design process. THE NEW DESIGNER'S HANDBOOK supplies today's designers with everything they need to know as they enter the world of graphic design- from how to work with clients to comissioning photography and illustration, understanding desktop typography and typesetting, producing layouts, preparing material for colour separation, and meeting printers. The substantial updated glossary includes all commonly used design related computer terms. The clear and informative text is fully illustrated with more than 100 illustrations and photographs.

Ever been caught out by your printer? Looked like an idiot in front of your client? Want to impress your girlfriend with your designer knowhow? OR just look like a complete graphics anorak! Whatever tint of Pantone 286 you wish to adopt it's all here. From the funny little squiggles at the bottom of a cromalin to how your Mac works - inside and out. Alistair Campbell has condensed a lifetimes' experience into one book. You can get it for the price of a round of drinks! Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Review 8 Dec 2011
By Andrew
Book is a must have if you are a graphic designer. I don't go a day by without using it. Also a grate learning source for printing, the got-to-know information for graphic designers these days.

But, I don't know if it's just my copy or not but I have 2 of the same sections. Meaning I have 126-152 pages twice. Not exactly a bad thing, just making you aware.

1.0 out of 5 stars OUTDATED. 9 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Outdated info.
Boring layout.
It's as if the book is talking a a graphic designer in the '90s.
Waste of money really if you're into design today!
