Layout for Graphic Designers
Collapse All Sections

Layout for graphic design concerns the arrangement of text and images on a page. How these elements are positioned, both in relation to one another, and within the overall design scheme, will affect how content is viewed and received. Whether in print or online, it is key to powerful visual communication.

Layout for Graphic Designers provides visual arts students with a theoretical and practical underpinning of this design subject. Packed with over 200 examples from key contemporary practices, and fully illustrated with clear diagrams and inspiring imagery, it offers an essential exploration of the subject.

This third edition has been updated to include 25 new images and 6 new case studies from Lundgren + Lindqvist, TwoPoints.Net, Bruce Mau Design, Non-Format, Mind Design and Plau.
