6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Antonio Frecentese on October 19, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a precious guide for all designers: it covers many fields, from multimedia to web to package design, with a lot of photos. Maybe a bit technical in some points, but very useful. In certain points you may find yourself asking "well, what's so new about that, I knewed it!", but then I ask you: "are you sure? or you just find that this book tells you how the story goes and suggests you all those basic principles you are supposed to know and you didn't notice?"

Moreover, this books covers mainly digital design, but it has sections and ideas useful for ANY designer.

If you're looking for a comprehensive guide, THIS IS IT!
