Through her straightforward and light-hearted style, Robin has taught hundreds of thousands of people how to make their designs look professional using four surprisingly simple principles.

“I have no graphic design background, but have always been interested in pursuing it as a hobby and/or freelance opportunity eventually. This has been an incredible resource for me as a beginner. It has tought me tons about fonts, colors, layout ideas, designing business card and other business forms, and so much more, it’d be impossible to list it all. The way the author lays out the book makes all this new information so easy to comprehend, and that is one of the things I like most about the book. I am always going back to re-read and look at ideas and info when I’m working on designing different things. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in graphic design.” – Emily Lewis

“This is an awesome book. The author clearly builds on proper design principles using outstanding examples of poorly and properly designed bulletins, personal stationary, postcards, resumes, etc. Although I have been using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign (formerly Pagemaker for years), I have a lot to learn about graphic design. Considerable emphasis is placed on the focus for the particular design followed by four easily understood design principles. The last one-half of the book concerns use of type. This is one great book. Seriously. I highly recommend the book to any beginner or low intermediate designer. Thank you very much.” – John R. Hawkins
