Book of the Week #6 > Fingerprint by Chen Design Associates
Our latest book of the week is called Fingerprint, The Art of Using Handmade Elements in Graphic Design by Chen Design Associates. I found this book to be full of inspiration. As a college instructor and designer, I find that many designs have taken on an ephemeral quality because of the computer. This book shows examples of how to merge the hand and computer together to make a work that is distinctive. Each example includes comments and materials that give you a better understanding on how the work was completed. If you are looking for inspiration on how to bring your designs back to something personnel and unique, then Fingerprint is the book you are looking for. It is available at this link or your favorite bookstore.
