A beginner's guide to desktop design power. This accelerated tutorial takes the mystery out of desktop graphic design, showing how to work with Quark Xpress and Harvard Graphics and covering the basics of type and terminology. 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. Marcelle Lapow Toor (Ithaca, NY) is a lecturer in Cornell's Department of Communication and creative director of her own graphic design firm, Digital Designs.
