Visual Strategies: A Practical Guide to Graphics for Scientists and Engineers
Felice C. Frankel, Angela H. DePace 2012 Yale University Press

The guide sets out strategies and offers examples to assist researchers - even those with no previous design training - with creating effective visual graphics for use in multiple contexts, including journal submissions, grant proposals, conference posters, or presentations. The authors dissect individual graphics, show why some work while others don't, and suggest specific improvements. The book includes conversations with designers, researchers, and animators.
