Throughout the book, visual examples show how to be inventive within the systems of typographic form. With forty-eight pages of new content and dozens of additional illustrations, the second edition provides stunning examples, eye-opening demonstrations, and helpful exercises.

Graphic design thinking : beyond brainstorming by Ellen Lupton( Book )

18 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The design process involves researching, inventing, and expressing ideas. Sometimes concepts seem to pop out of nowhere, but just as often they result from deliberate techniques. Many designers start a project wit brainstorming, an open-ended search for initial directions. Brainstorming, however, is just the beginning in a designer's quest for useful and inspiring ideas. Graphic Design Thinking: Beyond Brainstorming presents dozens of tools and techniques, ranging from quick, seat-of-the-pants approaches to more formal research tools, such as focus groups and co-design. At the book's core are techniques for releasing creative energy and stimulating fresh thinking to arrive at compelling and viable solutions. Each method is illustrated with visual demonstrations and case studies that show design processes at work. Also featured are discussions with leading professionals--including Art Chantry, Ivan Chermayeff, Jessica Helfand, Steven Heller, Maira Kalman, Abbott Miller, Christoph Niemann, Paula Scher, and Martin Venezky--about how they get ideas and what they do when the well runs dry

25 editions published in 1996 in 3 languages and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Graphic Design shapes the meaning and impact of all we see and read. Mixing Messages traces how both the aesthetic value and overall pervasiveness of graphic design have changed over the past fifteen years. In this period, technological innovation and, especially, the rise of the personal computer have drastically altered graphic design practice, triggering explosions of creativity in all forms of visual communication. From the independent producer operating out of the home to the publishing conglomerate, a more diverse design community is creating the images that affect us every day. From the printed page to the Internet, typefaces, colors, logos, and images transmit information and ideas, generating a literacy of the eye that affects us every day. In this important new book, a critical text accompanied by over 300 color illustrations explores the aesthetic, cultural, and technological issues that are shaping the future of graphic design. Featured is work by numerous designers, including Charles S. Anderson, Fabien Baron, Art Chantry, Stephen Doyle, Edward Fella, Tobias Frere-Jones, Dan Friedman, April Greiman, Jonathan Hoefler, Tibor Kalman, Zuzana Licko, Katherine McCoy, Paula Scher, and such global design offices as Landor Associates, Lippincott & Margulies, and Siegel & Gale. From this diverse array of practices, Mixing Messages constructs a rich picture of graphic design today."--The publisher
Graphic design in the mechanical age : selections from the Merrill C. Berman collection by Deborah Menaker Rothschild( Book )

15 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from Merrill C. Berman's private collection of twentieth-century posters, ads, photomontages, and graphic ephemera, this book showcases more than two hundred examples of progressive graphic design from the 1920s and 1930s. European, Soviet, and American avant-garde designers and artists of the time, using new technologies of mass production and mass distribution, marketed everything from salad oil and cigarettes to communism, utopian socialism, and the avant-garde itself." "These selections from the Berman Collection, most never before shown or reproduced in the United States, include works by well-known artists (Lissitzky, Rodchenko, Man Ray, and others) and by lesser-known masters. The book begins by detailing Berman's pivotal role in shaping the history of graphic design as he amassed his collection."--Jacket

Letters from the avant-garde : modern graphic design by Ellen Lupton( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking at the period between 1915 and 1950, Letters from the Avant-Garde is the first book to document the history of modern design and typography through the medium of printed stationery. Futurism, Dada, Surrealism, De Stijl, Constructivism, the Bauhaus, and other movements and institutions used letterheads to promote their ideas about form, function, and technology to an international community. The printed letterheads and other ephemera reproduced in this book are typographic self-portraits of some of the most fascinating figures in the development of modernism, including Herbert Bayer, Le Corbusier, El Lissitzky, F.T. Marinetti, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Kurt Schwitters, and Piet Zwart. Letters from the Avant-Garde features over 150 illustrations in full color, many published here for the first time. These experimental letterheads helped originate the modern discipline of design for corporate identity, and they show how avant-garde artists and designers engaged mass media in their work. This unique book will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the history and theory of modern art, design, and typography
