• Graphically Speaking

    Looking for a book to help you and your clients communicate and understand each other? This is it! You know when they say “innovative” and you are thinking one thing and they are thinking another thing? This is the book to take with you to your meetings, for sure! I am excited to do that with my next client! I can pull out the book, show them pictures, fonts, and groups of color, and say, “Is this what you mean by ‘fast-looking’ or is this?” Then my client can thumb through the book or look up adjectives in the back section and show me exactly what he or she means. This is a great book, with excellent color schemes and pallets, examples, and explanations galore. There are times that I can’t find some of the themes I’m looking for, but this book makes it SOOOO easy and wonderful to see great examples of wonderful work in simple genres that so many clients are looking for.
    An excellent guide to communicating with clients (never easy) in the graphic design arena. It’s not only a beautifully designed book with excellent photography, realistic examples and trade secrets - this book gives the reader advice and information on client interaction and making sure you both are on the same path. A must for every graphic designer.
    While the intent of this book is wonderful and in great ways succeeds in showing a great variety of design examples, I found the presentation to be less useful. Sure it gives super examples of designs that almost anyone would recognize, but it is difficult to share a book when the spine does not lay flat without cracking the binding and the print and page is so small that even right side up it is difficult to read and to one side or upside down it is impossible. I’ll use it more for a reference book than a hands-on tool.
