29 March 2006
Glouchester (United States) - Design Elements:A Graphic Style Manual will be a reference tool for working designers, as well as students, that will provide information and guidance for design projects.
Glouchester (United States) - Design Elements:A Graphic Style Manual will be a reference tool for working designers, as well as students, that will provide information and guidance for design projects in much the same way that books such as The Chicago Manual of Style and Strunk & White's Elements of Styled for writers and editors, or that Elements of Typographic Style(Robert Bringhurst) or Graphic Design Manual (Armin Hoffmann) do for graphic designers. Unlike these latter two publications, and similar books that focus on specific aspects of graphic design structure, typography, or color Elements of Graphic Design will address a variety of concerns: space and composition; color theory; typographic structure and hierarchy; concept and messaging; symbol, abstraction, and representation; pacing and sequencing; and production. The exposition of these components will be framed by a set of 20 rules that seek to define good design in the context of current and historical practice, and then explored in-depth in a series of five chapters:

Chapter 1 : Form and Space The Basics
Chapter 2 : Color Fundamentals
Chapter 3 : Choosing and Using Type
Chapter 4 : The World of Imagery
Chapter 5 : Putting it All Together Essential Layout Concepts

Eligible Work
Projects of any size or medium print, packaging, interactive, environmental are encouraged. All projects submitted for consideration must have been produced within the past year, and must not
have appeared in any other Rockport book.

Deadline
15 May 2006
