Visualizing and presenting your ideas convincingly is an indispensable part of day-to-day design, even in our age of digital design processes. No presentation is complete without layouts, storyboards or spontaneous sketches, often crucial to the outcome. No computer software, however good it is, can replace the non-computerized marker!

In this book, Gregor Krisztian and Nesrin Schlempp-Ülker explore and explain basic layout techniques, giving expert tips and demonstrating useful tricks employed by professionals. They show you how to present your ideas quickly and effectively, illustrating all stages of work with clear examples from teaching and practice. This will be an indispensable reference work for all professional designers and students – indeed, for anyone who wishes to present their ideas successfully and skilfully.
