Graphic Design School is organized into two main sections, 'principles' and 'practice'. The first section deals with the fundamentals of design, such as composition, hierarchy, layout, typography, grid structure, colour and so on. The second section puts these basics into practice, and gives information about studio techniques and production issues relevant to a number of different graphic design disciplines. The last part of the second section provides an overview of some of the different career choices open to students entering the graphic design field.

This seventh edition of Graphic Design School features all-new assignments and fully updated reading lists. Over a third of the images are entirely new, and include a mix of professional work and outstanding student pieces. In addition, Part II: Practice Plus features new software and revisits old print technologies - for example, risograph printing and screen printing - which are becoming increasingly popular forms of production again.
