A Design Manual by Shirley Brainard

This text focuses on the basics of design-helping today's students think about and explore ways of approaching their work in their chosen design field. The text has a conversational, humorous tone and uses easily recognized, often common-place illustrative materials. It first explores each of the elements of design individually, then explains the principles of design, and finally, shows how elements and principles are combined in the design process.
