Decoding Design: understanding and using symbols in visual communication is a book that aims to discover the hidden meanings inside common corporate logos and designs.
Maggie is past president of the Communication Artists of New Mexico, teaches logo design and symbolism as visual literacy for designers at the University of New Mexico/Albuquerque, speaks for conferences and universities, and gives workshops on creating more effective, engaging and aesthetic visual communications based in universal principles.
Page-spreads are shown on the Decoding Design website. I’ve taken a few snaps, too.
