DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The graphic design equivalent to Strunk & White's The Elements of Style This book is simply the most compact and lucid handbook available outlining the basic principles of layout, typography, color usage, and space. Being a creative designer is often about coming up with unique design solutions. Unfortunately, when the basic rules of design are ignored in an effort to be distinctive, design becomes useless. In language, a departure from the rules is only appreciated as great literature if recognition of the rules underlies the text. Graphic design is a "visual language," and brilliance is recognized in designers whose work seems to break all the rules, yet communicates its messages clearly. This book is a fun and accessible handbook that presents the fundamentals of design in lists, tips, brief text, and examples. Chapters include Graphic Design: What It Is; What Are They and What Do They Do?; 20 Basic Rules of Good Design; Form and Space-The Basics; Color Fundamentals; Choosing and Using Type; The World of Imagery; Putting it All Together?Essential Layout Concepts; The Right Design Choices: 20 Reminders for Working Designers; and Breaking the Rules: When and Why to Challenge all the Rules of this Book.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Design Elements: Form and Space provides students with an aesthetic understanding of form in the context of ordering space. The book employs a highly academic approach in providing readers with objective criteria to effectively evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a composition. Students learn the principles of spatial forces, visual aesthetics, color structure, spatial structure, and ordering strategy. The text presents spatial organization as a visual language in which the graphic elements of point, line, plane, and volume, along with their visual attributes, form its structure. Through this lens, the book discusses the logic of placement, grouping, alignment, visual flow, and divisions of space, as well as color harmonies. Students are provided with progressive visual demonstrations of these concepts from basic concept layouts to attractive, complex compositions. The second edition features new images and illustrations, as well as updated content to ensure the text is timely and relevant. Serving as a practical example of the very concepts and principles it teaches, Design Elements is an exceptional resource for students of graphic design and an enduring reference book for professionals in the discipline. Dennis M. Puhalla, Ph.D. is a professor of design at the University of Cincinnati in the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in visual language design, color theory, and visual aesthetics. Professor Puhalla served as director of the School of Design for ten years, initiating innovative and visionary programs. He earned a Ph.D. in information design from the North Carolina State University College of Design. He holds a M.F.A. and B.S. in design from the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning.

Release: 2007-12-03
Editor: CRC Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Maintaining a balance between a theoretical and practical approach to this important subject, Elements of Compiler Design serves as an introduction to compiler writing for undergraduate students. From a theoretical viewpoint, it introduces rudimental models, such as automata and grammars, that underlie compilation and its essential phases. Based on these models, the author details the concepts, methods, and techniques employed in compiler design in a clear and easy-to-follow way. From a practical point of view, the book describes how compilation techniques are implemented. In fact, throughout the text, a case study illustrates the design of a new programming language and the construction of its compiler. While discussing various compilation techniques, the author demonstrates their implementation through this case study. In addition, the book presents many detailed examples and computer programs to emphasize the applications of the compiler algorithms. After studying this self-contained textbook, students should understand the compilation process, be able to write a simple real compiler, and easily follow advanced books on the subject.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Public concern about the landscape, in particular its appearance, is increasing all the time. For those charged with managing, developing or conserving a wide range of landscapes it is a major task to take visual aspects into account. Elements of Visual Design in the Landsacpe presents a vocabulary of visual design, structured in a logical and easy to follow sequence. It is profusely illustrated using both abstract and real examples taken from a wide range of international locations together with cross referencing between related principles and case studies demonstrating how the principles can be applied in practice. The visual aspects of design have often been treated as 'cosmetic' and therefore not meriting attention or purely subjective and therefore open to personal preference. Few attempts have been made to explain how we see the landscape in any rational and structured way, and to demonstrate how visually creative design and management can be undertaken. This book aims to fill that gap.
