En la vida contemporánea todos somos voraces consumidores y emisores de mensajes visuales. Diariamente nos enfrentamos a una gran cantidad de información gráfica, aunque sin un conocimiento básico de los elementos del lenguaje visual es imposible alcanzar un auténtico diálogo que resulte crítico y productivo. Este libro es un pequeño tratado de gramática visual que define ...more

Designed and laid out beautifully, but I learned very little of something new.

It has some interesting visual interpretations, but that's it. Very weak book, not recommendable even for entry level readers.

If you see this on a friend's coffee table, by all means flip through it and find a few concepts you didn't specifically know in this context. It's pretty. I wouldn't buy it, though. Even as someone with no real design experience and little formal art training, most of it seemed extremely basic.

Before returning it to the library, I took a picture of the bibliography, and I'll get some of those more rigorous books.

Good basic introduction to the elements of design. Illustration and layout is nice and engaging. Feels like the small print should have just been part of the book. It was important but super hard to read due to type size.

Gráficos interesantes, resume de manera muy visual conceptos geométricos y abstracciones, pero no tiene mucho más.

(Review from a few years back) Beautiful, minimalist little book that tries to establish “grammar” for visual design. Abstract and almost entirely visual with few words. Breaks concepts down into what it calls abstract (e.g. form), concrete (e.g. color), actions (e.g. expansion) and relations (e.g. repetition). I don't believe I learned anything from this (in fact, I believe I spotted a few errors), but it's fun to quickly flip through.

Este precioso libro es uno de los mejores ejercicios de meta diseño con los que me he encontrado. El eslabón perdido entre un cuaderno de la Bauhaus y un manual de programa de dibujo vectorial. Además de servir como reflexión sobre las formas, me parece absolutamente necesario para comunicarse con propiedad.
Not much text, mostly images of visual concepts. A basic reference with a couple of choice quotes, but left me wanting much more for each of the elements described. Covers a lot of ground but with so little depth as to not have a huge amount of value. I did enjoy the visual representation of coincidence however and learning what a hypercube is.

I wished I read this book earlier, there is a few stuff mentioned here that I only understand them after years of designing and practice but this book will explain you and describe the basic elements of design and make it clear and easy. it's very informative and it's a MUST READ for people who want to get into graphic design (or art in general)

Also, extra points for the good design.

2.75 // It was a really quick reading. I like the concept, but I think it's more like an introductory book. Mostly of these things (if you are into designing) are basic. Whatsoever, it is cool and it did its informative job.

I seriously didn't expect to finish the whole book in one go, but it got me going! I didn't want to let go of it. very useful, as it is good for undergrads to understand some design terms and also a reminder to postgrads on what the terms are.

This is a great reference for the elements of design. Very quick to read through, but would be more useful as a reference later on down the road. I especially enjoyed the table of contents design and the concept map inside the back cover!

Visual Grammar is beautifully designed and thoughtfully laid out. I find it a nice little flick through book to inspire when creating and it's a good refresher on the basic elements of the design language. Should be given to every young student in art class.

This book reminds me of my 1st year In the Architecture and Planning faculty ..
Very simple i think it will help understand the basics of drawing and relations between shapes ...
