This is a great book to read for both students of design and designers themselves. It goes back to basics and uses non-complicated language to talk about the fundamentals of the industry.

I bought this as a present for a designer and it was very well received. Well written and informative and still relevant even though it is not a new book. I believe it covers a few of the classic design items.
