Hi, I'm not a graphic designer, though I have done a couple of 'amateur' projects & think I do have a bit of an eye for design. I'd like to learn more & maybe work towards becoming a professional graphic designer. I can't afford to pay £thousands for courses, so I'm planning on teaching myself, at least initially. I'm probably going to be using Adobe CS5 & have had suggestions of the official Adobe "Classroom in a Book" series & Deke McCllelland's "One-on-One" series but I'm aware these are more about how to use Adobe CS, rather than principles of graphic design. So, does anyone have any recommendations or comments re (a) books specifically about graphic design (b) which software might be best - Adobe CS, QuarkXPress 9, Paint Shop Pro, other (c) re Adobe CS specifically - which of the above books would be better, or any others Thanks in advance!
