Design Better

We are surrounded by graphic design from the moment we awake to the time we shut our eyes each day. We know what billboards, web sites, and business cards appeal to us, but we may not understand why. The Austin Public Library has a large selection of books for business owners, designers, engineers, architects, and students who seek to broaden and improve their design knowledge and skills. The titles listed below can help you enhance usability, influence perception, increase appeal, and make better design decisions.
