Built around a glossary which contains terms drawn from both studio and theory, Design Essentials gives readers the vocabulary required for successful development as artists and designers.

This practical book offers advice on professionalism and contains an illustrated glossary that includes terms describing visual elements, design principles and aspects of color; terms describing media or materials, including a basic vocabulary for talking about digital imaging; and terms describing critical idea, historical styles and movements.

For design professionals who want to increase or refresh their knowledge of the vocabulary of the field, and to continue to develop their personal understanding of form, content and style in their own work and that of others.
