By T. Lucas on October 22, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has wonderful visuals and gives great ideas to launch from for classroom projects. It gives the instructors ideas for what developed the project and goals for the project. The student examples are strong and should be helpful to communicate ideas to my students. The book is good to see what other instructors are doing around the country and the world. However, it is not in the same league as Elisabeth Resnick's book "Design for Communication." Her book gives much more detail that a first year instructor needs or anyone new to teaching a course in the field of Graphic Design. I am happy to have "Design School Confidential" and will use it for generating new course material. Would I buy it again, probably not.
