DESIGN BASICS, a best-selling text for the two-dimensional design course, will not only help you do your best in this course, but will be a great resource as you continue to develop your creative talent throughout your career. Filled with examples from nature, art, and popular culture, this clear and easy-to-grasp book demystifies the design process as it illustrates the elements of good design. Using visual examples from different time periods and various cultures, authors David A. Lauer and Stephen Pentak present each concept in a full-color, two-page spread, making the book easy to use as a quick reference and source of ideas. Icons appear throughout prompt you to access ArtExperience Online (a dynamic Web site integrated with the textbook), which contains studio art demonstrations and interactive exercises that help you explore the foundations of art.
