About the Edition

In Introduction to Two-Dimensional Design, respected designer and educator John Bowers provides a solid foundation in timeless design principles that are immune to fads and trends. With the help of more than 160 revealing illustrations, he explores both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of 2D design, interweaving historical accounts with penetrating analyses of visual principles and issues found in important contemporary examples. He demonstrates how competing approaches to 2D design - including those based on intuition, play, chance, and empirical research - can be used successfully, either alone or in combination.
