If you’re like most people, you feel like a baby when it comes to visual design. You sometimes have a vague sense of what you want, but can’t articulate it or make it come about. All you can do is point and cry. This guide will help you communicate with conscious skill. It will show you how to create designs that are easy to understand and attractive.Beyond giving you practical tools, I hope this guide inspires you. One of my favorite quotes is, “I open my eyes and I see paradise.” What a great gift vision is! What an incredible way to connect to the world around us and to each other. My hope is that this guide will allow you to communicate with more creativity and more control – and that you’ll want to learn more.
