The fundamentals of creative design by Gavin Ambrose( file )
31 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 2,068 libraries worldwide
The Fundamentals of Creative Design provides an introduction to the key elements of creative design and takes the reader, step-by-step, through each stage of the creative process. Creative design, the book argues, is in something of a "golden period." With so much design vying for consumers' attention, getting noticed in the visual morass and quickly creating a good impression is becoming increasingly difficult. This book provides a solid grasp of the creative design fundamentals that are necessary to produce effective and eye-catching designs. Each subject matter, or 'fundamental', uses detailed diagrammatic explanation, associated theories, and historical references to explain the underlying principles of design practice. Examples from contemporary designers and practitioners are examined in terms of Brief, Process and Result and accompanied by personal explanations from the creatives involved

"The Production Manual teaches all aspects of getting a job to production. It is a very practical 'hands-on' guide or manual for graduate students who tend to leave college without any of these skills. It will teach students how to use the knowledge they have gained during their course. In the case of printed work, this would include; plate-making, resolution, printing techniques - everything to ensure that the project is produced as required. The book also shows the inspirational side of production, for example, creative printing and how to achieve tricky effects like duotones and halftones. All the areas that fall under the remit of graphic design are covered including exhibition, packaging and signage. This title is suitable for graduate students of graphic design, photography, media studies, fine art, industrial, and product design as they start out in their careers, those wanting to get even more out of the production process, practising graphic designers, and those teaching different aspects of design."--Résumé de l'éditeur
