Design Seminar

To the fabulous Design Seminar Attendees

Hello Everyone—

Here are a few things you might be interested in.

First up—here are the items I used.

1. A PDF of the first slideshow: download here. [sorry, no longer available]

2. A PDF of the second slideshow: download here. [sorry, no longer available]

3. A PDF of the creativity exercises and doodle pages: download here. [sorry, no longer available]


 Secondly, here are some links you might like.

Ellen Lupton wrote an excellent book on typography. In fact, she also talked about grids. I recommend this book to designers and part-time desingers alike.

This is Lupton's take on grids.

Thinking with Type is her book and you can buy it here.

This seems to be a decent book:  
Graphic Design for Nondesigners: Essential Knowledge, Tips, and Tricks, Plus 20 Step-by-Step Projects for the Design Novice. 


Interesting sites I like very much. And you might, too.
