A very useful sourcebook for both students and professionals. Breaks down the research and design process clearly, helping to understand the importance of relevant research for design. * De Montfort University, UK * I LOVE this series of books. They are inspirational, affordable, and informative. I love the interviews with the various designers and others in the industry... Of course, not all students actually go out and buy the book but those that do are impressed and have gone out and gotten some of the others in the series. * The Illinois Institute of Art - Chicago, USA * Very useful and easy to understand book. Great visuals. Used as a resource for myself as a teacher and recommended to students to buy for themselves. Introduces students to design language that they can understand. * Canberra Institute of Technology, Australia * The book will be suitable for the following reasons: very good teaching tools for specific research and design tasks; clear and concise with easy to follow instructions; contemporary and innovative in approach and format. * Havering College of FE & HE, UK * This book was very helpful on the topic of the research process in fashion design. Clearly and simply allows the student to know the importance of research and how to analyze and apply the information. The importance of materials and presentation. Great job!

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.

Bitte beachten Sie bei der Verwendung der Lese-Software Adobe Digital Editions: wir empfehlen Ihnen unbedingt nach Installation der Lese-Software diese mit Ihrer persönlichen Adobe-ID zu autorisieren!
