Description

A Primer in South African Graphic Design features the work of leading design professionals, containing design fundamentals and principles ranging from practical advice and guidance, designing for and within the local context, examples of work by designers, a Q&A with experienced local design professionals to a glossary of useful resources and information.
The book provides a balance of educational material relevant to design students and practical content to help young professionals embark on their careers, whilst providing sufficiently advanced material and content to appeal to mid-level and experienced designers and allied industry practitioners alike.
SKILL SET: Knowledge Resource and Educational Series is a multi-volume series for specialised design disciplines. Using a practicable, outcomes-based approach, Skill Set will provide instruction in various fields of design, including graphic design, stage design, fashion design and industrial design – serving as a resource for both amateurs and professionals alike. Though neither a textbook nor a design manual, the book will help develop specific skills, intelligent design solutions, and effective project outcomes. It is a resource on the fundamental principles of graphic design, a source of inspirations and ideas, a business tool for designers, and a much-needed critical showcase of local graphic design.
The Skill Set series will feature content relevant to a local and international context as well as commentary and work by leading local design professionals. The series is aimed at a broad audience that includes learners at secondary schools and tertiary institutions, as well as emerging and experienced professionals.
