The graphic design exercise book: creative briefs to enhance your skills and develop your portfolio

Knight, Carolyn, 1947-; Glaser, Jessica

The Graphic Design Exercise Book provides a series of challenging design briefs that reignite a designer’s creativity while also imparting new skills. Whatever their age or experience, graphic designers like to be creatively challenged, and may also want to broaden their skill-base in order to break into new and lucrative areas of the design industry. A range of industry insiders share their specialist knowledge by way of briefs that stretch the imagination and encourage the development of new skills across a range of genres, including logos, packaging, branding, identity, promotion, publication design, music graphics, and web design. Organized much like a recipe book, each brief lists the required materials and equipment so that designers can pick and choose. Interviews and in-progress work is included, while a number of fully realized projects illustrate the possible outcomes
