It's been a busy blogging day today.

Consultant Pat Wagner has a great article in MLS: Marketing Library Services, v. 20, no. 2, pp. 1,4-5, March-April 2006. It is called Designing Promo Materials That Are Legible and gives some very good examples of good and bad publicity design. Unfortunately, it isn't available online, but you should be able to borrow it. It's worth the trouble. She knows her stuff; she has been a printer, graphic designer, book publisher, editor, book reviewer, columnist, and radio journalist.

Here are some of the web sites she cites:
Pattern Research, Inc. (her company): http://www.pattern.com
Books by Robin Williams, writes about design: http://www.eyewire.com/
magazine/columns/robin or http://www.ratz.com/robin/books.html
