Editorial Reviews

From the Author

For a long time I have wanted to write and illustrate a design book that steps the reader through the complete design process. From conceiving a smart idea to checking the final printed product for proper ink coverage--the big picture to the smallest details. This is that book.

If I’ve done my job, you will refer to often, not for theory, but for the kind of real world, practical insight you might share with a colleague. Enjoy.

Format: Paperback
DIY: Newsletters is another Chuck Green gem of great clarity and simple beauty. Good, thorough review of the design process in part one. But it's the 13 newsletter recipes in part two that I craved. Some stylish and arty, some plain and practical -- all uncluttered and appealing. With his step-by-step specifications, you just choose and use. Mix compelling content with any of these handsome templates and your readers will appreciate you. Even if you don't do a newsletter, Chuck's lucid explanations, sample palettes and effective use of clip art will improve all your print communication. Buy this book. Buy two...one to use and one to loan out. It's a bargain.

Chuck has done it again. His series of books are THE best design books on the market and this one on newsletters is the best of the best. Even if you just look at the examples you will become a better designer--but I recommend reading this book cover to cover. Wow! What a great book.

Format: Paperback
I was looking for a newsletter design book that would get my creative juices going and help me approach my project with a fresh set of eyes. This book did just that. I wanted to get away from our tired and wordy 12-page newsletter and create something smaller, more readable and concise. This book was just the inspiration I needed.
