Online Book Design: A Graphic Designers Perspective

“It’s so easy anybody can do it.” Camera makers have been telling us that for decades, and now online printers are making the same claim for everything from business cards to photo books. While twenty-first century digital technology has made file transfer and printing accessible to almost everyone, a menu of templates is no substitute for good graphic design.  A poorly designed book will distract from the quality you put into your photographs and leave a poor impression on the viewer.

Jim Bremer - VCPThrough printed examples and a brief overview of some basic principles of typography and layout design Jim Bremer will help you make your photography books attractive and professional looking.  Find out how at the VCP gallery on Thursday April 7th at 7:00 p.m.
