These photographs were taken during my recent trip to Portugal; I went to visit the Algarve and Alentejo.








This is a wonderful resource for students learning about graphic or web design. The book is witty, beautifully written, and easy to understand. This book educates readers on understanding the basis of good layout. Robin Williams provides four principles of good layout: proximity, alignment, repetition, and contrast. These principles are illustrated with examples of layouts using the principle contrasting with designs that do not use the principle.


When I taught the university class 'Intro to Web Design' a couple of years ago, I used this book to teach my students to understand the elements of good design. My professor for my first Visual Communications course (Bachelor's Degree) used it too. To go further, I showed the students examples of web sites illustrating Williams' four principles of good design.


Overall, this is an excellent book for those beginning to learn about graphic or web design and I would fully recommend it to any aspiring designer.

Trafalgar 200 is the celebration of 200 years since the battle of Trafalgar was fought. Portsmouth held a festival to remember this and had an air show, tall ships, mock battle, and fireworks.
