With Popular Lies About Graphic Design, young designers can read Craig Ward's opinions on a variety of misconceptions and common practices to better their craft.
Popular Lies About Graphic Design is a book that not only discusses myths about design work, but also presents its information in visually appealing ways. This makes sense, since it would be disappointing to pick up a book about graphic design that didn't employ any graphic design at all. Ward's dynamic page designs illustrate each of his points as his persuasive essays progress.
Some of the lies Ward identifies in his book include: nothing is original, cosmic sans is the worst typeface ever created, legibility and readability are basically the same and a good idea doesn't require a budget.
