Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Approach page design in a revolutionary new way! Unlike other graphic design books, The Elements of Graphic Designreveals the secrets of successful graphic design from the unique perspective of the pages “white space.” With the help of carefully selected examples from art, design, and architecture, the book illuminates the role of each design element and how it can be rendered more effective by including white space in the page architecture. The book also demonstrates how white space can lend “sound” to typography or shift the “weight” of a page. Clear, insightful comments are presented in a dynamic page design, and interactive design elements, thought-provoking captions, and scores of illustrations challenge designers to “think out of the box.”.

Book News Annotation:

Writing for graphic designers, art directors, and students, White (a seasoned graphic designer and educator) offers a method for successful designs for maximum reader comprehension. He demonstrates how to use scale, color, and position to guide the reader's eye through levels of importance. Other concepts include employing white space, using display and text type, and defining dominance in images and text. Imaginative analogies and hundreds of illustrations help demonstrate White's methods.
