Decoding Design Party Reminder!

Maggie is getting good notices (and lots of speaking engagements including the annual HOW conference) for her new book "Decoding Design" -- really both an artistically and intellectually engaging piece of work.  Join her and the folks from AIGA this Thursday at the One Up Club (formerly the Carom Club) at the NW corner of Central and 3rd Ave. in downtown Albuquerque.  More details below.

AIGA New Mexico and Maggie Macnab present (please join us!):
Decoding Design
Book Launch Party
Design with the power of natural law.

"Decoding Design: Understanding and Using Symbols in Visual Communication," written by longtime local designer Maggie Macnab, is a design theory book that explores the significance of symbols, numbers and shapes we encounter in everyday life. A handful of simple patterns shape our understanding and relationship with a complex world, and design that references this symbolic information creates an immediate and intuitive relationship with the viewer. This is increasingly crucial for designers and businesses to understand in a globally branded world.
By integrating interdisciplinary genres of philosophy, math and physics presented in lay terms, Maggie crosses and connects "specialized" boundaries to provide the designer with a powerful and eclectic approach to process. Books will be available at the party and Maggie will be signing copies. Decoding Design is also available on and at most retail booksellers. For more information on the book please visit:
