The Design Manual

Buy
For all those involved in any way with the design and production of documents, The Design Manual is the first comprehensive reference book that will give you all the answers and assistance that you will need. This indispensable reference source for traditional and digital publishing, including websites, is lavishly illustrated. For those involved in publication design, from beginners to graphic designers and desktop publishers, it is not a how-to but a how-to-do-it better.

The Design Manual was originally commissioned by the Australian Government Publishing Service as a companion volume to their Style Manual for Authors, Editors and Printers. As such, it was to do for designers what successive editions of the Style Manual have done for editors and writers—and public servants—for over 30 years: to provide guidance and recommendations as a practical reference for preparing publications.

So, as I had written a ‘Design’ column for a number of years—originally in Niche Media’s MacNews, which then became Australian MacUser and ultimately Australian MacWorld—it was agreed that the past columns would become the basis for this publication.

The Design Manual would expand the themes and cover as many areas of a professional graphic designer’s tasks as it could. It would focus on the whats, whens and whys of graphic design; rather than the hows, wheres and whos.

About the Author

David Whitbread was the Head of Graphic Design at the University of Canberra until 1999 and currently writes a monthly design column for Australian MacWorld.
