This qualitative multi-case study of academic literacy is the first research to assume the premises of the Multiliteracies Project of the New London Group of literacy researchers. It takes a multimodal view of literacy, not limited to reading and writing, and sets about to uncover the Design (the flexible structuring of rules and principles) that students and teachers both follow and create in college courses. This Design takes the form of a game in which students channel content from sources, such as texts and lectures, to assessments of various kinds. Students are then rewarded in the form of grades to the extent that the content they display matches the criteria the professor sets up.

The students in this study had to determine which content would or would not match these criteria, which of six "types of information" (facts, concepts, connections, processes, principles, or metainformation, e.g., rhetorical patterns) were desired and how best to supply them. To move content from source to target they used four "operations." These include exposure (making themselves conscious of the information), extraction (a process of selecting information), manipulation (changing or synthesizing information), and display (showing the information). Greater awareness of this Design led to greater success. Pedagogical implications of this model include establishing a more realistic curricula for academic literacy programs and educating professors to better match grading criteria with learning goals.

Digital media are revolutionising design, both as a tool in design practice and as a way of thinking about design products, processes and systems.

Digital Design outlines the rules and patterns that underlie digital media and clearly explains how they improve design outcomes. But Digital Design is about breaking and bending the rules as well as following them. The book reveals how a combination of systematic thinking (understanding and using rules and patterns) and intuitive thinking (adapting and inventing for specific situations) can enhance the work of a digital designer.

Written for both experienced and novice designers, Digital Design is superbly illustrated with over 200 black and white and colour images. With its unique combination of analysis and how-to, the book is inspiring for students of visual effects, animation, game, website and architectural design, and product and graphic design in a broader sense.
