"Essential reading for many folk these days" - by GS
I bought this book as much out of curiosity as anything else, to see if the rules were the same as I remembered them to be :-) It's proven to be not only a good source of amusement (the writers have taken a witty approach to the subject at times) but also a handy reference and reminder as to the numerous pitfalls in graphic design. The description says the reader can either dip in at random or use the book as a source of a daily lesson - there are 365 Essential Design Dos and Don'ts after all ;-) But I would find it difficult to stop reading after just one `lesson'. It's the type of book which draws you in to the extent you can spend quite a while flitting from one page to the next. Though if anyone takes one rule from the book it should be rule ... full review

"EPIC!" - by Sarah Ellen
WOW!!

I couldn’t put this book down! I’m so grateful to have this inspirational book in my library, a delightful & thought provoking insight into a successful designer’s life. I love that Radim demonstrates pieces of his own philosophy in sharing the truthful highs and the lows of his design journey so far. It has given me so much confidence as a designer starting out. The ‘Mind’ section of the book resonated with me so much as I’m sure it has for many others who work within as well as out of Design. This book is powerful & extremely enjoyable, a must read for all designers and anyone in the creative industry.

"Beautiful book with modern design concepts to whet your appetite" - by Vesper_Flea (Leeds)
This book looks and feels beautiful. It has some lovely illustrations and examples of the basic design concepts. It is very inspiring.

It would have been a 5 star book, but i felt that the text isn't as descriptive or useful as it could be.

"An easy resource covering distinctive accomplishments by worthy design thinkers" - by N. Wu
“Visionaries" are described as people with original ideas about what the future will or could be like. That was unlikely the plan of those graphic design thinkers featured in “Graphic Design Visionaries” by Caroline Roberts. This book covers a broad scope of international designers who had the talent and fortune of working with corporations that enabled their creative freedom beyond the usual for its time. Paul Rand, FHK Henrion, Saul Bass to more obscure names like Ladislav Sutnar, Giovanni PIntori (Olivetti) & Cipe Pineles (Seventeen Magazine) are represented. And yet there’s a void left by the lack of female representation (Margo Chase, Marian Bantjes) or extraordinary designers like Alvin Lustig & Stefan Kanchev. (Perhaps an opportunity for a followup?)

In all fairness, the intention here is not to be an exhaustive encyclopedia-style collection, but rather an easy resource covering distinctive accomplishments by worthy design thinkers. It functions to give each designer ... full review

"Great... But hard to read for non-native English speaker" - by Jelle
This is one book from my collection Graphic Design books.
At first glance this book looks amazing and it is great!
This book is really a gem for English Design students. But for me, Dutch-speaker
is very hard to learn from it. The aimed audience level is very high.

The information in the book is wonderful, but for me it is to hard to read.
I think i have to retake it in a further stage, when my English becomes better.
To bad that i have to decide to stop with reading for now. I wish my English had been much better.
I am sure that i will learn a lot from this book.

To be clear, i really recommend this book, but for people who haven't any language problem (native-English-speakers)
Later... i will post an update... But for now i leave this one alone on my bookshelf...

Too bad...

"Still smiling…" - by Hon Lam (London, UK)
A wonderful update to an original classic. Belongs on the shelf/desk of any self-respecting graphic designer. Lots of content and examples from the original – juxtaposed with modern and recent examples that would be recognised and appreciated by the post-internet generation.

"Probably the best overall introduction to colour" - by Martin Turner (Zaventem, Belgium)
Color Design Workbook is an introduction to colour theory, colour design and the emotional impact of colour which is about 1/2 information and 1/2 case studies supported by commentary. As such, it goes significantly further than most introductory guides in terms of what colour does and how to work with it. It also has a wealth of cutaway boxes giving additional snippets of information that are highly useful if you never happened to pick them up on the way. Overall, this is the best introductory book on colour I've seen, although it falls short of technical assessments of colour management in the digital world.

There are many books on colour, and even more general design books with a section on colour. This one covers all the basics -- additive and subtractive colour, colour theory and sample colour combinations -- but it goes beyond most of the books by giving a guide ... full review

"I'm not a designer, and I liked this book" - by Neil Crosby
I'm not a designer. That much is obvious from looking at the websites I produce that haven't been designed by someone else. That doesn't mean I don't care though; which is why on Christmas day last year I ordered this book.

I've only just got round to reading the book, but I'm glad I did. As a learning book it's deliberately quite lightweight and easy to get through in a short time, in the same way that Steve Krug's "Don't Make Me Think" is designed to be absorbed in a couple of hours on a flight. All told, I spent about three hours with this book, on my tube journeys to and from work this week.

Robin starts her journey by briefly explaining the concepts of Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and Proximity (anyone spot an acronym there?), before moving on to explore each concept in greater detail. As Robin repeatedly tells us in ... full review
