Overview

FOUNDATIONS OF DESIGN is a clear, concise text covering all major topics in the fundamentals of design. Practical and straightforward, the author builds upon each concept of design from a blank canvas to a final product. The prose is paired with diagrams created by the author that visibly illustrate each concept in the same crisp approach as the narrative. A selection of contemporary and graphic design examples aid students in making connections from the principles of design through to a final work. Paired with the interactive ebook, offering students even more real world examples, as well as the online peer review and instructor critique tool, Art Studio, this text creates an interactive and engaging classroom experience.
