Powered by Design: An Introduction to Problem Solving with Graphic Design by Renee Stevens

In Powered by Design, educator, designer, and public speaker Renee Stevens brings a truly up to date and thoughtful approach to an introduction to graphic design. As Assistant Professor at the S.I. Newhouse School of Communication at Syracuse University, Stevens created this book to be at home equally in academia and outside of the school setting. With a conversational and approachable tone, Stevens' book is for anyone who wants to gain a more practical understanding of what graphic design is today, and the power and potential it has: from students to novice graphic designers to anyone who wants to build a solid foundation of design skills so that they can work more effectively with professional designers. Stevens covers topics such as:

  • Choosing the right typeface
  • Hierarchy and visual weight
  • Creating design systems
  • Balancing tension
  • Visualising data
  • Understanding colour and mood
  • Defining a story structure
  • User testing and critique
  • Immersive design
  • Determining when a design is finished
  • How to make a living with design

Woven throughout is the crucial idea that you must embrace empathy in everything you design in order to create work that is the most inclusive. Design has the power and potential to make real impact in our everyday lives, and this book will show you how to do that starting with your first design experience.
