The Non-Designers Design BookThe Non-Designer’s Design Book

This book, by Robin Williams, is lots of fun to read and can help even the most design-challenged to take a new look at their work.  It provides the four basic principles of design and steps you through each one.  As any good design book should, it provides plenty of visual examples.  I love how it shows the before and after for each design piece.  A variety of design applications are shown, from business cards to newsletters to advertisements. 

In this book, Robin encourages people to break free of the 12pt font. “Let go of Times New Roman and Arial/Helvetica,” she also urges, “Just eliminate them from your font choices. Trust me. (Please let go of Sand as well.)”

I highly recommend this book for anyone who uses design in their job, either for the bi-monthly newsletter or national advertisements.  

Available at Barnes and Noble for $23.99. Also available as a part of a larger collection (I have not seen the entire collection, just this portion of it)
