In A Book About Design, Mark Gonyea taught us why a complicated design does not necessarily mean a good design. Now he's back in super-heroic form to demonstrate that the beauty of complicated can be found in its underlying simplicity. Mesmerizing to look at and easy to understand. Condition: Used: Good. Could be an ex-library copy that will have the stickers and or marking of the library. Spine may show signs of wear. Dust jacket may be missing.

Complicated Doesn’t Make It Good. With a playful wink and lots of white space, Gonyea speaks directly to readers, inviting engagement as a vehicle to understanding fundamentals of design while allowing bright, bold graphics to speak for themselves

Complicated Doesn’t Make It Good. With a playful wink and lots of white space, Gonyea speaks directly to readers, inviting engagement as a vehicle to understanding fundamentals of design while allowing bright, bold graphics to speak for themselves. Ellipses and parenthetical asides affect a cozy, conspiratorial tone. Amusing, sometimes enigmatic chapter headings like 1:3:9 (an exponential ratio of weight and balance in composition) introduce dynamic demonstrations that prove the power of the purposeful arrangement of the parts of a picture.

This is the book that’s up to the task. Gonyea’s highly visual approach teaches basic design concepts by placing the emphasis on showing rather than telling

Design is all about the perception of size, shape, and color.

A fabulous and fun introduction to the concepts of design

A Book About Design: Complicated Doesn't Make It Good takes a most creative approach to introducing young (and not-so-young) readers to the fundamental elements of design. Using simple shapes, lines, and a sense of humor, this book explains why complicated doesn't make it good-and why that matters. Mark Gonyea opens up the world of design and makes it accessible to young artists and non-artists alike.

  • This is an entertainng and deceptively simple presentation of the principles that can be useful for adults as well as for children.

    I purchased this book along with Molly Bang's "Picture This" to use as a review of design principles for my college class in research for stage scenic design. The class is concerned primarily with research and not design itself. I was looking for a way to summarize design principles since the course considers design only indirectly. I thought that I would read these two books in one class period in the same way that librarians read picture books to grade school children.

    My class loved the book as I read it to them. They laughed and I learned something too. They said that they would never forget the 1-3-9 ratio which is repeated throught the book as a useful graphic tool. They had a good time and their design projects improved.

    I am waiting for Gonyea's next book because inspite of the fact that "complicated doesen't make it good", I am still looking for a little more 'complicated'.

  • This is the best design book I ever read! I stumbled across it at our public library last year... I knew right away it was a book I had to add to my collection! I'm an elementary and middle school art teacher, and I plan to use this book with several of my classes... including my 6th grade in middle school! The book breaks down the rules of creating a good design and a balanced composition so simply, step by step... all of my kids will be able to follow it. With only a few words per page, Gonyea uses the simple illustrations to really get his point across. Most illustrations are simple shapes and colors. At the end of the book he brings together all the elements mentioned earlier and illustrates how all the elements work together to create a balanced composition. This is a must have... great gift even for first year art majors!

  • Again, the author presents design concepts with very simple text and illustrations. This book is can be used to teach children of many ages.

  • This was a gift and I know the person liked it. I did not see it before it was shipped but was told it was a 5 star book.

  • This is a great book to teach basic principles of design in a simple, yet understandable way. It can teach ages from kindergarten to adult. I wish every elementary classroom could have a copy to help kids with their art projects!

  • My son absolutely loves this book. He always names it when asked what his favorite book his.

  • Not often does one come across a great new design book that would be the perfect holiday, or birthday, gift for your kids, nieces, nephews, grandkids or that creative kid of any age you may know. That book is A Book About Design: Complicated Doesn't Make it Good by designer Mark Gonyea. With its bright colors, simple design and easy-to-read text this book would be great for the young artist/designer in your life - especially those of grade school age. Basic principles of design - often forgotten by many in the profession - are presented in a very entertaining manner. I'll be ordering copies for some of the budding designers I know, as well as some of the seasoned pros who will appreciate getting this book in the spirit of the holiday season. What a fun book! - Jeff Fisher, writer of bLog-oMotives and the "Logo Notions" column at CreativeLatitude.com

  • A Book About Design by Mark Gonyea is an attractive, very clearly illustrated quick introduction to some principles of design. A glance at the illustrations would lead one to believe it was a book for young children, however the text, though brief, utilizes vocabulary (intersect, aggressive) and concepts, like ratios, more suitable for older children or adults. I intend to use the book as a quick introduction/ illustration for design concepts with middle school and high school students and think it will work well for that, but if one is looking for in depth discussion, for older students, or suitable vocabulary for younger, this might not be your best bet.
