Worth a read for design people!
Find it here.
thanks for the link. Personally I found it rather lacking and a bit "snobbish".
I confess I've only skimmed it.
now, I personally know the stuff in there already so I jumped a little towards the end... but he spends a lot of time idolizing his own skill/view of the world. And actual advice you can use in a real job (where things go fast and you have a budget) are sparse ... but you can learn a little about A-series paper sizes, grids and typography (a little) - so for a beginner there is some info in there.
I don't think that I've ever met a graphic designer who wasn't blinded by their own shining magnificence. Thank god I'm just an average artist so I don't have to worry about that sort of thing.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)
