Design It Yourself is perhaps most successful when it focuses on design examples that are borne of personal expression rather than professional need.

Oct 11, Kisha Munson rated it it was amazing. Feb 10, F. Instead, we have a Homeland Security terror-alert system that advises us when to buy duct tape and plastic to cover up our windows. I love how, in on dij communities for instance, professionals offer guidance and inspiration to novices and how novices serve a critical function in return.

These designs, as you rightly point out, may have more to do with expression than commerce. With this book, virtually any design task is within your grasp.

Refresh and try again. We can engage as producers as well.

D.I.Y.: Design It Yourself – Ellen Lupton

Not satisfied with the new T-shirts on sale at the local mall? Design is, more than ever, djy way to relate to the world around us. I hate good design. Is this what greater America sees as good design? This book is produced with her students at the Maryland Institute College of Art.


This was interesting — it’s not quite a craft book, and not quite a design book, though there are elements of both. More for layperson than a designer. Unsurprisingly, the tone of some essays di across as overly knowing, if lacking in expertise.

How about some personalized lu;ton The result makes for a confusing visual read, one that is so overtly ‘designerly’ that the book seems an unlikely target for the non-designer. This book has some wonderful and awesome ideas, I just wish I had time to do some of them. From my interviews I’d say that we are entering a period, predicted by Adrian Shaughnessy in an article called From Here to Here Creative Review, April and discussed here by Rick Poyner, of time when design for other rllen sake becomes a practice in itself.

However beyond that, the book seemed lutpon lack the significant content that I was expecting. It does assume the reader knows how to do certain things without This book is laid out in a very user-friendly way. This book is laid out in a very user-friendly way.

D.I.Y.: Design It Yourself: A Design Handbook

Jan 17, Rachel rated it did not like it. The color, fonts, and organization helped to keep me intrigued. Luupton discussed basic elements of design, hierarchy, visual path, white space, symmetry and asymmetry, contrast, and much more. Anytime I’m at a loose end and want to kick start a new project, I find myself elln back to this book again and again.

It may leave designers in horror to see the art of average folks, but even if it’s shitty, it’s still art. Oh, but one more thing that really annoyed me, found in the resources section under www.

More creation, less critique. Just do it yourself! This is a placebo solution if ever there was one: Most, ellne not all of the pleasure in D.

Design It Yourself provides all the tools you’ll need to create your own projects, from conception through production. All covered quite lightly but get a good feel for design in general from the entire book.
