No more excuses. With this book, virtually any design task is within your grasp. Just do it yourself! Not satisfied with the new t-shirts on sale at the local mall?

Maybe you'd like a wedding invitation that expresses your own vision, not your party planner's? How about some personalized stationery? An upgrade to your website? A business card? A poster for your political campaign? A CD package for your band? Sound good? Then get up off your couch and "Design It Yourself". Avoid graphic identity theft: build your own.

Ellen Lupton, bestselling author of "Thinking with Type", will show you how. Here you will find: simple ideas on how you can "think like a designer"; clear and coherent-explanations of design technologies, from silk-screening to web development; what materials you'll need to get your job done; where to find and buy them; how much time and experience your project demands; diagrams that show how to handle complex tasks; basic typographic dos and don'ts; suggestion - filled interviews with top designers; the history and theory of the DIY design movement; and hundreds of innovative and beautiful projects for inspiration.

August 26, - Published on Amazon. Verified Purchase. This is a terrific book for ideas all across the board! I bought this book after flipping through it at a friends and was excited to see so many hip and unique ideas. I modeled my wedding invitations after an example from the book and have gotten compliments from all of the invitees!

This is an amazing "get you thinking" book. The only drawback, there are no instructions or tips for carrying out the projects, so I would highly recommend it for adventurous souls who want to create something out of the ordinary, or for anyone looking for fresh, new ideas. I've even purchased another copy to give as a gift to a design-oriented friend! September 8, - Published on Amazon. This is a great book if your going int graphic design or artist specialist to keep up with the times.

January 1, - Published on Amazon. I can't believe all the information in this book. It has so many projects that I want to try that I don't know where to start. All of the instructions are complete as well.

There are also projects that I haven't previously been interested in that I would love to experiment with. This is one of the most exciting books I have bought in a long time.

February 28, - Published on Amazon. Great info. April 15, - Published on Amazon. I found it more useful for ideas than as an actual how-to.

The web design section was frustrating, since that's the main reason I bought the book. It's not so useful for those of you who, like me, know how to use the internet, but don't already know the mechanics of it.

A good analogy is my car: I can drive the heck out of it, but give me written instructions to install anything more complex than an air filter and I'm going to be stumped. Perhaps this is dependent on your age I'm 58 and whether the internet - and computers, for that matter - is already part of your DNA.

All that said, this is a fun book to peruse and, appropriately, well designed! Go to Amazon. Discover the best of shopping and entertainment with Amazon Prime.
