No more excuses. With this book, virtually any design task is within your grasp. Just do it (yourself)! Not satisfied with the new t-shirts on sale at the local mall? Maybe you'd like a wedding invitation that expresses your own vision, not your party planner's? How about some personalized stationery? An upgrade to your website? A business card? A poster for your political campaign? A CD package for your band? Sound good? Then get up off your couch and "Design It Yourself". Avoid graphic identity theft: build your own. Ellen Lupton, bestselling author of "Thinking with Type", will show you how. "DIY: Design It Yourself", provides you with all the tools you'll need to create your own projects, from conception through production. Here you will find: simple ideas on how you can "think like a designer"; clear and coherent-explanations of design technologies, from silk-screening to web development; what materials you'll need to get your job done; where to find and buy them; how much time and experience your project demands; diagrams that show how to handle complex tasks; basic typographic dos and don'ts; suggestion - filled interviews with top designers; the history and theory of the DIY design movement; and hundreds of innovative and beautiful projects for inspiration.
