Design elements - a graphics style manual

Clive on Learning

Distribute light and dark like firecrackers and the rising sun : Above all, make distinctions between light and dark noticeable and clear. Create images - don't scavenge : Nothing is more banal or meaningless than a commonly-used instance of stock photography that shows up everywhere. I love crossing into related disciplines and exploring the received wisdom. I'm obviously not a professional graphic designer but I am an enthusiastic amateur and keen to improve.
