For the design geek: This week I’ve had more time than usual to read twitter and check out links due to consecutive sick days (The only thing keeping my school from being a sequel to Outbreak is Dustin Hoffman and B actors).
@ddmeyer intrigued me with a tweet about teachers and design theory:
This morning, @creattica lead me to an amazing design resource: 50 Totally Free Lessons in Graphic Design Theory.
Which ones should you read first? I would flip through the list and find ones that intrigue you. I hope to read a few this week:
1. #33: The Basics of Graphic Design
2. #34: Want to know how to design? Learn The Basics.
3. #22: Color Theory: Overview
4. #27: How Colors Impact Moods, Feelings, and Behaviors
5. #1: Typography, Part 1
6. #17: Grids: Order Out of Chaos
7. #43: A Few Lessons From Real World Usability
Have you used any design resources you think other teachers should use? Leave a comment and tell us about it.
