I want this book to communicate. I want to clearly lay out the main points of graphic design, as I see them, and have you walk away with something. So I've divided the book into three sections. Like a good design, each part will serve a distinct function that will, in combination with the others, create a whole. Beginning with the basics of how we operate at Hillman Curtis, inc. and ending with tips on how to become a better designer, this book is as much a textbook on design as it is an homage to the craft, an exploration of ideas, and an autobiography of myself as an artist in the 21st century.
