White Space 3rd Edition in Production

White Space is Not Your Enemy cover 3rd EditonAfter a significant delay from our publisher (attributed to one imprint merging with another), the 3rd edition of White Space is Not Your Enemy is finally in production.

Kim and I are particularly excited to see the new cover and chapter title pages. The cover and title pages each sport a colorful geometric pattern inspired by the recent mid-century modern design revival. I took my initial inspiration from a business card I picked up while staying in a small boutique hotel in Munich, Germany. I borrowed other patterns from rugs, pillows, curtains, wallpaper, wrapping paper and upholstery.

Tools available in Adobe InDesign CC and Illustrator CC took the chore out of pattern-making. I anticipate adding some pattern-making tutorials to the WSINYE website update.

While it will still be a month or two before WSINYE 3rd edition is available for sale, check out some of the new graphics and page spreads here.
