A review by Sally Stiff
Here is a design manual that leaves no stone unturned. It is an extremely comprehensive book detailing every aspect of the processes of designing, specifying and supplying a signing installation. Anybody who seriously wants to know about how to sign a building need go no further, it’s all here. Although this is a large book and densely packed with information which makes the subject matter seem heavy and difficult to digest, don’t be put off. Step by step the manual provides thorough guidance to the sign designer.
The author has spent his working life as a designer and there is a lot of good information which anybody embarking on a design career would find useful. For example; intellectual property issues, the nature of ‘good’ design, liaising with clients as well as managing the whole process of steering a project through from start to finish.
