- Hi everyone, I'm John McWade, a senior author here at lynda.com. In this Before & After weekly series called Graphic Design Best Practices we'll focus on graphic design, not as decoration, but as a visual communication. This series is not about running your software but about the form and function of design. How to make things look good. How to visually convey your ideas with beauty, simplicity and clarity. We'll talk about the priniciples of design, about line, and shape, and movement.
We'll talk about the visual forces that shape your page. We'll get hands on with typography, and color, and imaging, and layout. We'll talk about how to transfer a look from one venue to another. We'll make web pages, stationery, brochures, everything really that a designer needs to make.
I'm looking forward to bringing this series to you so join me every week and learn how to design everything with grace and style and authority.
