This comprehensive text is now updated and includes equitable coverage of fine and commercial art. Media and methods span from the traditional to computer design, and a global emphasis reveals the design solutions seen around the world. The critiquing process begun in the analysis of student examples will be useful to students preparing for applied design disciplines. The art of women and non-Western cultures provide a broad base of visual examples.
