    Graphic Design Speak: Tips, Advice and Jargon Defined for Non-Graphic-Designers… paperback edition!

    graphic-design-speak_cover

    Last year we released the eBook Graphic Design Speak: Tips, Advice and Jargon Defined for Non-Graphic-Designers, to lots of great feedback and hundreds of copies sold. By popular demand, we're soon to be releasing Graphic Design Speak in paperback format through our sister-biz Creative Minds Publishing, and you can pre-order it now to get it first!

    This handy 44-page paperback guide explains:

    • Basic colour terms like Pantone, CMYK, RGB and what they mean
    • Common file types and where you use them (a.k.a. Why can’t my printer just get my logo from my website and put it on my business card?)
    • How to distinguish a high-resolution image from a low-resolution one (a.k.a. A journalist has asked for a high-resolution image for a story about me, but how do I know which one of these image files to send?!)
    • The standard paper and envelope sizes
    • Facts about fonts
    • And over 95 common words and phrases us graphic designers throw around willy nilly.

    Here's what's new in the paperback edition:

    Plus, it's printed in full colour in Melbourne, Victoria using environmentally friendly printing methods and paper.

    Read more here or pre-order here! Books will be posted in early September.
