Money is always an object. But even when the budget’s small, your designs can still be great. They must be great, for your own good as a professional.

Creating Great Designs on a Limited Budget shows you—in visual after exciting visual—how to do top-flight work even when you’re saddled with bottom dollar. Written by two who know design and its penny-pinching realities, this is the drawing-board/workstation manual that covers:

  • the priceless principles of excellent design—solid ideas, clean design, attention to detail and others. You need these, and, whether your budget’s a buck ninety-eight or a bazillion dollars, you can afford them.
  • how to create impact using only one or two colors. Look how typography, photography, boxes, rules and screens, and inexcpensive line art add punch to a design when you used them well.

  • ways to get high mileage from low-cost visuals. Why pay an illustrator or photographer when you can use public-domain images, create your own visuals, take your own pictures?
  • thrifty ways to get your jobs produced, printed and bound. Learn production time-(which equals money!)-savers, how to add color economically, plan paper buys and printing to get your best values, get bargain binding and barter your way to a high-power, low-cost finished piece.
