DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Two-Color Graphics is the latest installment in Rockport's series that includes Minimal Graphics, Touch Graphics, Large Graphics, Small Graphics, and Color Graphics. Two-color graphics offer a range of effects from somber and elegant to edgy and bold. More importantly, they're inexpensive to print, which perhaps explains why two-color printing is so widely used. Despite its popularity, however, two-color printing has a stigma of looking cheap compared to four-color pieces. This book puts that myth to rest by showing how dynamic effects can be achieved with simple, inexpensive two-color printing. Besides its simplicity, it has a style all its own, which can convey sophistication, elegance, and integrity. Included is a "color finder" section designed to show readers a variety of color combinations for various projects. Each featured project is also shown in thumbnail size in 15 to 20 different two-color combinations.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Typographic organization has always been a complex system in that there are so many elements at play, such as hierarchy, order of reading, legibility, and contrast.

By taking the reader through exercises, student work, and professional examples, Elam offers a broad range of design solutions. Once essential visual organization systems are understood the designer can fluidly organize words or images within a structure, combination of structures, or a variation of a structure. With clarity and substance, each systemfrom the structured axis to the nonhierarchical radial arrayis explained and explored so that the reader comes away with a better understanding of these intricate complex arrangements. Typographic Systems is the seventh title in our bestselling Design Briefs series, which has sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide.
