Graphic Design Play Book: An Exploration of Visual Thinking
By Sophie Cure and Aurélien Farina
An introduction to graphic design, the Graphic Design Play Book uses puzzles and visual challenges to demonstrate how typography, signage, posters and branding work.
Through a series of games and activities, including spot the difference, matching games, drawing and dot-to-dot, readers are introduced to concepts and techniques in an engaging and interactive way. Further explanation and information are provided by solution pages and a glossary, and a loose-leaf section contains stickers, die-cut templates, and colored paper to help readers complete the activities.
Illustrated with typefaces, posters, and pictograms by distinguished designers including Otl Aicher, Pierre Di Sciullo, Otto Neurath, and Gerd Arntz, the book will be enjoyed both by graphic designers, and anyone interested in finding out more about visual communication.
