Overview

The Non-Designer's Design Book by Robin Williams

A lot has happened in the world of digital design since the first edition of this title was published, but one thing remains true: There is an ever-growing number of people attempting to design pages with no formal training. This book is the one place they can turn to find quick, non-intimidating, excellent design help from trusted design instructor Robin Williams. This revised classic--now in full color--includes a new section on the hot topic of Color itself. In The Non-Designer's Design Book, 3rd Editio n, Robin turns her attention to the basic principles that govern good design. Readers who follow her clearly explained concepts will produce more sophisticated and professional pages immediately. Humor-infused, jargon-free prose interspersed with design exercises, quizzes, and illustrations make learning a snap--which is just what audiences have come to expect from this best-selling author.

This book is perfect for those of us without any graphic design background or education who need to create professional-looking publications. Great examples and visuals throughout the book solidify the points being made at the moment they are being made. The author is straightforward and challenges readers to get out of their comfort zone to create really phenomenal work.

This book was recommended and I was quite excited that I could get it for my NookColor. But it uses graphics to illustrate font combinations and illustrations of good layout - unfortunately the graphics are not crisp - they do not display well on the Nook Color. This is an example of why there is a 14-day trial period, and why I should have used it instead of going ahead and purchasing the book immediately. Also, it is a very short book - only 115 pages. The content is good but not worth the price for little content and poor graphics.

This is a great book! It is so simply and easy to follow. It incorporates many visual examples which makes it easier to understand. I highly recommend it for both teachers and students.
