Developed to address the needs of computer-based graphic design programs, as well as more traditional approaches, Communicating through Graphic Design offers a fresh, up-to-date look at one of the fastest-growing art career areas. This high school text, full of colorful designs by professionals and students, first hones students’ fundamental thinking and drawing skills, emphasizing knowledge of elements and principles, planning, and sketching with traditional media. Students then move on to specific areas of design, observing and analyzing exemplary works from a variety of designers past and present, and finding their own solutions to real-world design problems.

Highlights include:
•  Computer-based and traditional approaches to each studio experience
•  Design challenges that reflect actual workplace practice
•  Career profiles of contemporary working professionals
•  Art and design historical references
