Learn to Conceptualize, Create, and Communicate in Graphic Design  

An exciting first edition, Guide to Graphic Design helps readers learn the mechanisms used to convey information, integrate ideas into full concepts, but most importantly, to think like a graphic designer.  Scott W. Santoro focuses on the principle that design is a layered and evolving profession. The text highlights step-by-step design processes and illustrates how to build good work habits.


Creations from top design firms and design school programs are presented in each chapter engaging readers through the book.  Designers have contributed short essays on their work style, their studio habits, and their inspirations. Each designer, showing a passion for design and communication, offers a new perspective and approach to possible working methods.


MyArtsLab is an integral part of the Santoro program. Containing but not limited to key learning applications such as:

  • Chapter Audio read by Scott W. Santoro, allows students to listen to the entire text—a key feature for allowing design students to focus on each example.
  • 12 Designer Profile Videos are intimate portraits of designers in their studios talking about their approaches, ideas, and love for the field of graphic design.
  • Closer Look tours, interactive walkthroughs featuring the author’s narration—offer in-depth looks at designs from the text, enabling students to zoom in on details they couldn’t otherwise see.
  • Exercises and Projects: The text encourages students to approach these exercises and projects as potential pieces for their portfolios, watching for breakthrough points in their work—times when they really took a chance and did something out of the ordinary—and then adding that work to an evolving portfolio.
