Kimberly Elam

Kimberly Elam is a writer, educator, and graphic designer. She has written three best-selling books for Princeton Architectural Press Design Briefs series: Geometry of Design, Grid Systems, and Typographic Systems. Over 100,000 of her books are in print in seven languages, and are used as essential texts in college design and architecture programs. These books feature her educational research and methodology. She feels that by bringing her research into the classroom the teaching experience is transformed from a process of conveying information to a collaborative partnership of creating knowledge. She has also been a contributing author to books by Steven Heller, Ilene Strizver, and Willam Lidwell as well as the new Phaidon Compendium of Graphic Design.
