A beginner's guide to desktop design power.

The book covers the design process, illustration use, working with color, and the printing process. There are also design guidelines for different kinds of materials-information, editorial, or promotional. Features new coverage of Web page design, legal issues related to the Web, and a collection of overused symbols to avoid.
