Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
We always encourage customers to look inside the book, but in the case of The Creative Process Illustrated, that suggestion is especially apt. Creative directors, art directors, and advertising copyrighters improve their work by expanding their vocabulary of presentation possibilities. Author W. Glenn Griffin guides readers through that process by identifying its four stages (preparation; incubation; illumination; verification) and, more importantly, showing how dozens of innovative agencies have solved them. Even casual browsers and people outside the field (for example, aspiring artists) can benefit from this book. Flip the pages; see the light.
