I know a bit about graphic design. Anyone who knows something about framing a picture will know something about composition, empty (or negative) space, etc. This is not the same as being a trained graphic designer by any stretch of the imagination – let me put that disclaimer out there. But I do know something about it.
And everything I have learned about design came from the online magazine Before and After; a great resource for those of who have questions or simply need inspiration.
Well, John McWade – the editor of Before and After – has collected the installments of the magazine into a fantastic resource book: How to Design Cool Stuff; available here on Amazon, or at Barnes and Noble. As an added plus, if you do buy this book and flip to page 164, you will see my images and website featured in the chapter about designing a great business card.
I’m not suggesting you buy the book for this reason (though it is a fine reason), but it is a entertaining and fine resource to have. And no, I do not receive any commission on book sales. So there.
