The Graphic Design Exercise Book by Carolyn Knight and Jessica Glaser
The Graphic Design Exercise Book provides a series of challenging design briefs that reignite a designer’s creativity while also imparting new skills. Whatever their age or experience, graphic designers like to be creatively challenged, and may also want to broaden their skill-base in order to break into new and lucrative areas of the design industry. A range of industry insiders share their specialist knowledge by way of briefs that stretch the imagination and encourage the development of new skills across a range of genres, including logos, packaging, branding, identity, promotion, publication design, music graphics, and web design. Organized much like a recipe book, each brief lists the required materials and equipment so that designers can pick and choose. Interviews and in-progress work is included, while a number of fully realized projects illustrate the possible outcomes. The Graphic Design Exercise Book is a must-have addition to any designer s bookshelf, prompting personal projects, new experiences, and revamped portfolios.
