The Non-Designer's Design Book: Design and Typographic Principles for the Visual Novice by Robin Williams
While revisiting Design for How People Learn by Julie Dirksen, I came across this gem, which Dirksen recommended for training professionals seeking a crash course in graphic design. Wonderfully written and illustrated, this book is one you'll want to add to your instructional design tool belt. It helps provide better insight into the four key elements of graphic design as well as answers why certain visual layouts look better than others. This resource will help any nondesigners take their visual designs, in any medium, to the next level.
