Design Standards (Sizes, Formats, Colors, etc)

James Deux's picture

Hola todo!

I was just wondering if someone knows a web or print resources that lists most major Design "Standards", if such a resource can even be created.

Just something listing things like... known paper-print sizes, abbreviations for such things, color standards (i.e. understanding when to use RGB, CMYK, Pantone...), and things of this nature.

Thanks-
JD

I find this book VERY helpful for print. I'm sure there are equivalents for web design.

Most of the info can be found on the web - I've looked stuff up in an ad hoc kind of way but I don't know specifically of a single resource that has all this info in the same place.

There is also a book called "Forms, Folds, and Sizes" available.
