We have a new designer on staff for about a week now, she is doing well but she needs help in design skills. She seems to pick up on things that she has to read first before actually "doing it". Is there any type of book and/or video out there that is good in teaching design skills?

When i am talking about design skills I mean picking mat colors and frames and or fillets. How to look at a picture and know how to pick the right colors to use? This has become such a no brainer for myself and my other designers that we are having a little harder time teaching the new person. We do know the questions to ask and our new designer is good at asking them. (you know, what color is your couch and the curtains in the ajoining room

Any input on good guides for teaching great design?
