Introducing Thou Shall Not Use Comic Sans by Sean Adams

Thou Shall Not Use Comic SansEvery creative has their own individual methodology or, more importantly, their own combinations of the thousands of techniques one can apply when planning a new design project. However, there are some dos and don’ts about what should and should not be accepted as the right way to create the best graphic design.

This book brings these key dos and don’ts together in the form of a classically structured almanac that is packed with practical advice but presented in a light-hearted fashion. The advisory rather than dictatorial approach means designers can take or leave the advice presented in each rule.

Thou Shall Not Use Comic Sans is the must-have collection of the best advice that any graphic designer should have at their fingertips.
