Go : A Kidd's Guide to Graphic Design Hardback
by Chip Kidd
'Congratulations, you have decided to open this book, even though you have no idea what it's about, and the cover is weird and seemingly at cross-purposes and possibly even pretentious.
But you opened it anyway. And you know what? That was a design decision. Yes indeed, whether you realised it or not, most of the decisions you make, every day, are by design...Take my word for it, you are a designer. 'Chip Kidd opens with the promise that everyone is a designer, and uses every page to show the reader why that is.
Each spread explains and demonstrates a critical introductory graphic design concept, the same ones taught in the first year of art school: form, size, scale, repetition and pattern, colour, typography, etc.
Beautifully designed, and clearly explained, GO: A Kidd's Guide to Graphic Design, is an original, truly one of a kind.
