Perhaps you are working on a new project and need a little inspiration , or even a quick reference to show you how to do that one cool effect that will be the finishing touch on your latest creation. Whatever you need, this book can help you in so many ways. One of the toughest things about being a designer is getting a good idea. The next challenge is realizing that idea. This book will not only be a source of ideas , but will also show you how to create them step by step. You can even combine multiple effects to create other cool results–the book’s cover was designed by combining at least half a dozen techniques found within.
Corey wrote this book for working designers, or anyone who just wants to add some “cool factor” to their projects. Each tutorial is a stand-alone technique or mini-project, so you do not have to follow the book in sequence. Just find what you like and have at it. And, as an added bonus, you can download all of t he images used in the book to follow along with.
It’s everything you loved about the Down & Dirty books, now in a small handbook size you can use as a quick reference to a variety of effects.
