Abduzeedo Inspiration Guide for Designers (Voices That Matter)by Fabio Sasso
Synopses & Reviews
Brazilian designer Fábio Sasso, who has wildly popular design blog Abduzeedo, has created the definitive guide to design. This book features interviews with designers and offers tutorials on various design styles, an extension of what he does with his site abduzeedo.com. Each chapter addresses a particular style, e.g., Vintage, Neo-surrealism, Retro 80s, Light Effects, Collage, Vector, and starts off with an explanation about the style and techniques that go into that style. Next, the Abduzeedo Design Guide shows images from different visual artists illustrating each style. Fábio interviews a master of each style, such as, in the case of Retro Art, James White. Then he wraps up the chapter with a tutorial showing the elements and techniques for creating that style in Photoshop.
Meant for beginning to intermediate designers as well as more experienced designers looking for inspiration, the book focuses on styles that can be applied both to web or print.
