Graphic Design: The New Basics

April 17, 2008 - By 

This site (and corresponding book) is a great way for students and new designers to learn the basic rules of design. This is the stuff I wish my teachers taught me more of. My school was very software and technology-centric. For me though, it was easy to learn software. It was how to make things look great with the software that was more elusive. Sites like this remind us that form and method is not inherent in our tool set and should not be taken for granted or forgotten. Check out the “Design Problems” as well for some great visual homework. Found on Motionographer

  • The book looks good.
    Although be careful with C+M+Y = K, It’s best to do K = K when your printing as if there is any misalignment you’ll just get multicoloured fuzz.

  • dave,

    k=k=shit on printing
    c+m+y=shit on print

  • Guys… K + C(40%) = GREAT K

  • You made some really good points there. I looked on the web for more info about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this website.
