Summary
Taking the apple as a basic element for thinking through the practice of design, Ken Miki takes the reader on a complete basic course in visual communication. The form and characteristics of the apple are used to address topics such as color, scale, surface, texture, writing, line, and body. A unique approach that offers inspiration and food for thought for both experienced graphic artists and those less familiar with the world of design
