Design of dissent by Milton Glaser( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dissent is an essential part of keeping democratic societies healthy; for citizens to voice our opinion is not only our privilege but our responsibility. Without this dialogue, the backbone of what we have fought so desperately for could easily crumble. Over the past decades, the number of democratic societies has increased around the globe, and there is a heightened awareness of increasing conflicts and problems that affect our everyday lives. With the Middle East conflict, the war on terrorism, and financial and environmental crises, people's sense of safety, power, and representation has diminished in part because they feel they have no voice. Designers, however, use their skills to communicate their dissent, even more so now with the World Wide Web and the increasing ease of distributing posters and other printed materials. This book examines graphic work focusing on social and political concerns from around the globe.--From publisher description

Drawing is thinking by Milton Glaser( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than fifty years, Milton Glaser has designed much of the world we live and experience every day. His posters, books, albums, restaurants, advertisements, and so much more have identified him as the preeminent force in design in America. Now, in Drawing is Thinking, Glaser draws upon an amazing vocabulary of images and techniques to create his most personal book to date. In a way, he has not only been drawing all his life, he has been thinking about art and design on that journey." "Based on his view that all art has its origin in the impulse to create, he has designed a book that powerfully delineates this position. In Drawing is Thinking, the drawings depicted are meant to be experienced sequentially, so that the viewer not only follows Glaser through these pages, but comes to inhabit his mind. The drawings represent a sweeping range of subject matter taken from the full range of a reflective master's career. The pages suggest that drawing is not simply a way to represent reality, but, as the title implies, a better way to perceive the world. The maker and the viewer become more attentive, one by creating the work, the other by experiencing it." "Glaser's two signature books, Graphic Design and Art is Work, are each in print decades after their first appearances. In different ways, each is a display of his work with extended descriptions of how the work came about, and how design problems were visually resolved. But in Drawing is Thinking the author is less interested in display. Glaser this time is concerned with how the mind works in its attempt to create reality."--Jacket
