A Review by Fred Showker
Graphically Speaking: A Visual Lexicon for Achieving Better Designer-Client Communication (Graphic Design) by Lisa Buchanan
Lisa Buchanan wrote this book for a couple of reasons, I love it for all of those
reasons! This is not just an inspiring romp of eye candy for the creative side of
all designers, (which is why I love it most) but a working tool to use in establishing
a common ground between the designer and client.
According to Lisa:
Before becoming the art director for HOW Design Books, Lisa Buchanan worked with clients on a freelance basis designing logos, brochures,Web sites, and identity systems-all the while developing her insights into the client-designer relationship. Since arriving at F&W, she has earned an Art Director's Award for the cover of Creative Edge Brochures. Some of her recent book designs include Powerful Page Design, Designer~ Survival Manual, Designing Web Sites for Every Audience, Idea Revolution, and The Pocket Muse and others.
This book is a knock-out. Once you get it in your hands,
you won't be able to put it down. In fact, if you've got other designers in the shop,
you'll need to be extra careful where you put it down because it seems to
attract people with sticky fingers. I've already lost it three times... turning
up on different desks each time! People just can't keep their hands off of it! "WOW
this is a killer" they'll say. Then: "Can I have this one?" In you
