Excellent design book for graphic desingers Oct 20, 2005
This is a well-designed book showcasing some students work as well as more known designers like Ahn San Soo, and Art Chatry-in a word, many design examples in this book aren't the ones you seen in hundreds of other graphic design books out there. The work shown in the book aren't placed there randomly like a catalog display. They all effectively accompany a particular topic in discussion-about color. There are seven chapters in the book: 1. Intro 2. The Terminology of color 3. Basic Color Theories 4. The Creation of Color Wheels 5. Color Calibration and Overprinting 6. Color Prepress and Printing 7. Behavioral Effects of Color Note that the book for graphic designers. Those who want to study color theories and psychology of color may want to look else where. What l really like about this book is the discussion of prepress work and explaning step-by-step how to manange and correct colors. Like what you can find in the book, "Pantone Guide to Communicating with Color", there are also 19 pages of "color associations" which package designers may find useful. This book also blows away "Color Index." The book comes with a CD containing PDF files of "hue swatch system."
