PUBLICATION DESIGN

What are the elements of good publication design? Attractive, eye-catching cover art, reader-friendly layouts with aesthetically pleasing design features and legible typefaces, and finally, helpful charts, diagrams, photos and illustrations.  

I incorporate these important elements into the design of reports, guidebooks, manuals, booklets, newsletters, etc., drawing on a wide range of looks and styles to suit any context.
