Patience in the design process is said to be a virtue. If
thats true, I must acknowledge the tremendous virtue
of everyone around me throughout this book’s unusually
arduous development process: fi rst, the editorial and
design team at Rockport Publishers (Emily, Betsy, Regina,
and Winnie); my long-suffering partner, Sean; and last,
my friends and parents.
As always, I owe a debt of gratitude to the designers and
studios who contributed their work to be featured as
examples; I am once again honored by such professionals
taking time from their busy work schedules to collect and
prepare their projects. A special thanks is due Jasen Rolfe
and Jess Underwood, student assistants who helped with
image production during the more challenging phases.
I would like to dedicate this book to all my students, past
and future in the hope that it will prove useful and enjoy-
able to read.
