Overview

Digital Foundations: Intro to Media Design with the Adobe Creative Suite by xtine burrough, Michael Mandiberg

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.

Fuses design fundamentals and software training into one cohesive book!

  • The only book to teach Bauhaus design principles alongside basic digital tools of Adobe's Creative Suite, including the recently released Adobe CS4
  • Addresses the growing trend of compressing design fundamentals and design software into the same course in universities and design trade schools.
  • Lessons are timed to be used in 50-minute class sessions.
Digital Foundations uses formal exercises of the Bauhaus to teach the Adobe Creative Suite. All students of digital design and production—whether learning in a classroom or on their own—need to understand the basic principles of design in order to implement them using current software. Far too often design is left out of books that teach software. Consequently, the design software training exercise is often a lost opportunity for visual learning. Digital Foundations reinvigorates software training by integrating Bauhaus design exercises into tutorials fusing design fundamentals and core Adobe Creative Suite methodologies. The result is a cohesive learning experience.

Design topics and principles include: Composition; Symmetry and Asymmetry; Gestalt; Appropriation; The Bauhaus Basic Course Approach; Color Theory; The Grid; Scale, Hierarchy and Collage; Tonal Range; Elements of Motion.

Digital Foundations
is an AIGA Design Press book, published under Peachpit's New Riders imprint in partnership with AIGA, the professional association for design.
