Revue de presse
"Today's software is so creative and seductive that it is easy to think that's all there is to creating engaging content. Angie Taylor's book shows the other side of the story: the visual techniques and design principles that underpin digital moving image making. In this comprehensive guide she has assembled a wealth of tips and exercises in topics such as drawing, composition and typography that will be required reading for all up-and-coming motion media artists."
- Birgitta Hosea, Artist and Course Director of MA Character Animation, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London.

However, I was still largely disappointed. I couldn't help but feel that I already knew much of this information already and the author's presentation of if felt as though she had little more then a basic understanding as well. She several time admits that one topic or another is not an area of her expertise (video editing for example, strange in a book title for the Motion Media Artist.) This feeling was not helped by the fact that this is one of those books on design where the authors personal design examples are, frankly, not that great.
This book is also structured so that you are told what your going to learn, you learn it, and then recap what you just learned two pages ago. Also, many chapters end with and "inspirational" story from an artist. This all feels like fluff to me.
Bottom line, if you want just the basics, explained in a truly basic way, this book does that. But if you want any thing more then that, then this book spends too much time on basic subject and too little time on anything advanced.
I think this book is best used in an entry level multimedia type of course. It covers a lot of ground, but everything it covers, is covered in more depth in other books. And I think the lengthy chapter on drawing seems a little silly to me, because I just don't see it helping anybody that wants to improve their drawing skill.
For me, I liked the chapters on composition, type, and color in particular. But I also realize that it wasn't a very thorough treatment of any of those topics.
Many individuals who do web design my have gotten thrust into it because they know how to code and build a website, but there's much more to a good website than that.
For me, this book is very interesting, leaving me wanting to absorb each and every page of Angie's experiences and make an effort to apply some of the wisdom she dispenses.
Angie provides useful resources such as colormunki (colormunki.com) for color correction. Helpful information is provided throughout the book, with many references that range from photoshop tips, design concepts, as well as Adobe Premiere tools.
This book is great for beginning to intermediate artists, designers and people working in web media.
To sum up, this would be a good high school textbook. Even college students who are already creating animations could probably benefit from going over the basics again. However, this book really needs practical exercises to go along with it. It shouldn't be too hard for teachers to create lessons to complement the text. As the title says, it's about design essentials, so won't go out of date quickly.
