Design Thinking for Visual Communication 2nd edn. (Print copy) by Gavin AmbroseHow do you start a design project? How can you generate ideas and concepts in response to a design brief? How do other designers do it? This book will answer all these questions and more. Now in its second edition, the highly popular Design Thinking for Visual Communication identifies methods and thought processes used by designers in order to start the process that eventually leads to a finished piece of work. Step-by-step guidance for each part of the process is highlighted by real-life case studies, enabling the student to see teaching in practice. This focus on ideas and methods eschews an abstract, academic approach in favour of a useable approach to design as a problem-solving activity. The new edition now includes contributions from a broader international range of design practices and adds depth to existing case studies by looking in greater detail at some of the processes used.

Presentation Strategies and Dialogue. (Print copy) by Christina M. ScaliseThe ability to effectively and persuasively communicate design solutions is an essential (but often underemphasized) skill for successful interior design, and Presentation Strategies & Dialogues helps students hone that ability.

Working from a view of the design presentation as an exchange of ideas, the book explores in depth how to cultivate interactions with clients and respond to their feedback. This eminently practical how-to book is a valuable resource for any design student, as a reference for a design studio class, or as a text for professional practice courses.

Communication Design: insights from the creative industries. (Print copy) by Derek Yates; Jessie PriceThe success of a piece of communication has always been dependent on the connection between content, form, audience and context - what the message is, who it's aimed at, what it looks like, and how and where it's communicated. In recent years the balance between these elements has shifted. This book bridges the gap between education and emerging practices to provide students and practitioners with the information they need to understand the new skillsets required to succeed in this changing communication environment. Organized into themes of brand, experience, conversation, participation, navigation, advocacy and critique, it explores the core ideas shaping contemporary practice. Alongside case studies of game changing projects, it uses analysis of historical context and interviews with key thinkers and practitioners to provide a relevant and contemporary guide to the creative employment landscape.
