“Graphic design is purposeful planning that uses any combination of forms, pictures, words, and meanings to achieve one’s goal…..graphic design is problem solving (and sometimes making something really cool in the process).
This was an interesting book I snagged while shelving in J nonfiction a couple weeks ago. Kidd is a graphic designer known for his book covers, and he created this informative graphic design book for kids in a very engaging format (and the hard cover feels good to hold).
For the instruction to pick out a font from a two page spread that best feels like Me, I choose Helvetica Neue Ultralight (“Helvetica – the sensible shoe of typefaces”).
Which do you choose?
And – my favorite sentence from the book: “Complexity has to be carefully managed or it becomes chaos.”
