Graphic Design Speak: Tips, Advice and Jargon Defined for Non-Graphic-Designers

Author(s): Tess McCabe


Graphic Design Speak is about giving non-graphic-designers a working knowledge of the words and concepts graphic designers commonly use, without explaining the history of graphic design or going overboard with technical explanations. The 44-page paperback explains: basic colour terms like Pantone, CMYK, RGB and what they mean; common file types and where you use them; how to distinguish a high-resolution image from a low-resolution one; the standard paper and envelope sizes; facts about fonts; over 95 common words and phrases graphic designers throw around willy nilly. Those multiple back-and-forth emails with your techy-nerd friend or frantic late-night forum-reading can be avoided with this helpful little handbook, and you will feel empowered with knowledge and enjoy a better working relationship with graphic design professionals as a result. Graphic Design Speak is ideal for makers, interior designers, publicists, marketing and communication professionals, writers, musicians, bloggers, performers, students, or anyone who works with a graphic designer. Designed and printed in Melbourne, Victoria.
