White Space is Not Your Enemy - Book Review

We are all designers, more or less. In order to succeed with design we must know design rules. It is not a rocket science and wont take too much time to familiarize yourself with elements and principles of design. 

Book content
White Space is Not Your Enemy is very good book which will help you to succeed with your design. There is something for everyone: for those who need to quick design something (the works-every-time design and 13 amateur mistakes), for those who want to get started with design and for those who want to know most important about design without to study it.
White Spice is Not Your Enemy Book Review

Authors: Kim Golombisky and Rebecca Hagen. Pros of this book is that covers everything from what is design to preparation for printing. Cons is that book does not contains bibliography or recommended further reading.

When I said covers everything this doesn’t mean that authors just pass through subject quickly as many others do, they actualy covers and very important things like what to pay attention and how to choose or buy images for your project. Along with description of best file formats authors explains what is well composed photo and that 300 ppi (resolution) does not mean image is useful only for print and vice versa. Difference between royalty-free and rights-managed photos also explained with advice where to get photos and what to avoid when searching for photos in chapter 10 of this book. Another excellent chapter is type - what you don’t know can hurt you. In this chapter you will get explanation of what is typeface, font family, glyph, followed with font categories described and recommendation how and when to use it in your design.


Conclusion and rating
My rating for this book is 4 stars and the reason to recommend is good structure, easy to read and understand and the excellent style of writing.
