Before and After: How to Design Cool Stuff

Before and After: How to Design Cool Stuff9.0Before and After: How to Design Cool Stuff by John McWade

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


An easy-to-follow book that covers design principles, techniques, and then a slew of practical step-by-step examples: business cards, brochures, text logos, DVD cases, newsletters, websites, presentations, et cetera.

I didn't necessarily like all of his designs, but I understood his choices because he explains them well. There was plenty that I did find useful.

The book uses loads of images to illustrate his points and also has several templates to help you recreate some of the more complicated projects.

A handy reference.
