Book, 80-pages, bound so it will lie flat, the book is intended for you to use as an ongoing reference, $49.95 plus $4.95 shipping & handling

Join Jane as she takes you through the design process. Good design doesn't just happen — it requires a keen understanding of readers' preferences and graphic design principles. In an easy to follow, step-by-step approach, you'll see the design approaches Jane discusses spring to life!

From setting your objectives to coming up with a creative approach; from specing type (how many fonts should you use anyway?) to working with rules, drop caps, and dingbats; from integrating photographs to selecting grids, you'll be armed with knowledge you can use.

Scores of examples highlight design principles in both the video and the book. Jane's clear and easy-to-read commentary makes theory spring alive. You be able to:

  • use the principles of balance and visual syntax to ensure you catch your readers' eyes and get your message understood in just the way you want;
  • combine fonts to ensure readability is protected while you add pizzazz to even the simplest layouts;
  • come up with ideas using Jane's three techiniques to jump-start the creative process; and
  • integrate art and copy in meaningful, exciting, new ways.

Your designs will win acclaim and accomplish your goals because they'll be methodically — not whimsically — created.
