Master the techniques and practices used by professional designers
Design School: Layout is an instructive guide for students, recent graduates, and self-taught designers. It provides a comprehensive introduction to creating and changing layouts, a crucially important skill that underpins practically every aspect of graphic design, and includes in-depth analysis of all the major areas of theory and practice used by experienced professional designers. Each section is interspersed with tests designed to help readers retain the information they've covered in the preceding spreads, and a selection of relevant support files in popular design software formats allow readers to test themselves using the examples provided.
This in-depth guide avoids the temptation to stray into other areas of design technique, preferring to cover the essential skills of the professional typographer in the detail required to arm students and graduates with the knowledge needed for a successful start to their chosen career.
