Kimberly Elam is a writer, educator, and graphic designer. She is currently the Chair of the Graphic + Interactive Communication Department at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. She has written extensively about graphic design and design education.
Her first book, Expressive Typography & Word as Image, identifies and analyzes methods by which words can transcend didactic meaning and become images. Geometry of Design – Studies in Proportion and Composition, visually illustrates the connection between classic proportioning systems and modern graphic design, industrial design, illustration, and architecture. Grid Systems – Principles of Organizing Type puts forth a clear methodology for understanding and learning the grid system of composition. Her most recent book, Typographic Systems – Rules for Organizing Type presents an innovative series of nontraditional, rule-based, visual language systems for typographic composition.
Her current work focuses on the development of a series of innovative ebooks and print-on-demand books for design education on the Website, StudioResourceInc.com.
