designingLULA: My Two Cents About Stuff

Back to the Basics of Design

Sep 8, 2010 | design dig

I was surfing the ‘net and ran across something that brought back a ton of design school memories. It’s a site that was set-up for a book put out by Princeton Architectural Press and Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Spring 2008. It’s a guide to basic design principles: Graphic Design the New Basics.

The site itself is a bit frustrating since not all of the links are active but if you can bare through it there’s some solid info on the basic principles of design. There’s also some exercises that brought me straight back to my foundation year. So if your a design student or just someone looking to get back to the basics, check it out.

Got any good resources for basic design principles? I’d love to hear about them.
