From the Inside Flap
Computer technology has completely revolutionized the work of graphic designers, printers and print production professionals. To keep pace with these far-reaching changes, Production for Graphic Designers is set firmly in the digital age. This book embraces all the new and emerging technologies in graphics and print production, comprehensibly explaining the prepress and printing processes from traditional letterpress to the latest on-press CtP (computer-to-plate) digital offset and on-demand colour printing. It also covers design to production workflows, reflecting new digital technologies, and spells out the many acronyms encountered by today’s designers. In this fifth edition the material on digital technologies has been expanded, with increased coverage of Web 2.0, and with sustainable and environmentally sound processes detailed throughout. There are feature spreads on five new trailblazers in graphic design, including Stefan Sagmeister, Jonathan Barnbrook and Paula Sher.See all Product description

This book is an essential for any graphic designer, particularly one new to the job. It covers absolutely everything from the basics of design to the print process - which I thought was very useful. It's an introduction to the history of design, as well as a glossary of terms and it is written in plain english and illustrated well with diagrams, photos and examples of past and present graphic design work. There are also several great case studies of particular designers. This book even tells you how to set up your work station and how to minimise the risk of RSI. There's advice on best/popular practice and plenty of other useful bits of information that you should know.
This is the ultimate graphic design thesaurus. There is not a better book out there that does the job as well as this one does.
