It has tought me tons about fonts, colors, layout ideas, designing business card and other business forms, and so much more, it'd be impossible to list it all. The way the author lays out the book makes all this new information so easy to comprehend, and that is one of the things I like most about the book.
I am always going back to re-read and look at ideas and info when I'm working on designing different things.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in graphic design.
It was perfect for me. The book focuses on design as a means a effective communication rather than just a way to make pretty things, and that works a lot better for my brain. The examples are very clear, and the iterative improvements from one design to the next are so clear that even I can tell that they look better (and understand why). The writing is equally effective and easy to consume. It only took me 4-5 hours for my first pass through this book.
After finishing the book tonight, I set out to improve my resume. 90 minutes later, I'm shocked with the results. I used to think my old one looked fine, but now I can see so many design flaws in it. The new version, well, I'm sure there's still plenty wrong with it, but looks better than anything I thought I'd ever create on my own.
After reading Williams' book and working the exercises, I have a decent idea of what to look for and why certain things work while others don't. If you can name a problem, it's hard to fix, and she breaks it down for us non-designers in an easy to understand way.
Am I ready to work the graphics desk at The Times? Definitely not, but Im using what I learned right away in creating an engaging slide deck for a national conference.
