Herb Lubalin : typographer / [author Adrian Shaughnessy]

Adrian Shaughnessy: Herb Lubalin : typographer. Unit Editions, London, 2016, 203 oldal
ISBN: 9780993231650

This book, published by the London-based design publisher Unit Editions, focuses solely on [Lubalin’s] style of typography design, which Lubalin described both as “graphic expressionism” and “conceptual typography.” It also features lots of lovely spreads from the radical Ginzburg magazines, all of which have gone down in graphic design history. Fast Co Design Book Herb Lubalin claimed not to be a great typographer. ‘In fact,’ he said, ‘I’m terrible, because I don’t follow the rules.’ This new book proves the opposite. On every page it features Lubalin’s typographic genius (logos, layouts, lettering and typefaces), and places him at the forefront of 20th century typographic innovation. He even had names for what he did: he described it as ‘graphic expressionism’ or ‘conceptual typography’. Using his ability to adapt, merge and create new typographic forms, he was able to enhance and amplify meaning in ways that hadn’t been seen before. Having published two books celebrating the genius of Herb Lubalin as a graphic designer working in many spheres, this new volume concentrates solely on Lubalin’s typography. It comes with new texts, new design, new photography, and lots of previously unpublished material – and with a price tag that makes it accessible to a wide audience.

Paula Scher : Works

Paula Scher: Paula Scher : Works . Unit Editions, London, 2018, 315 oldal
ISBN: 9780995666474

This monograph covers Paula’s early days in the music industry as an art director with CBS and Atlantic records; the launch of her first studio, Koppel & Scher; and her 25-year engagement with Pentagram. It also provides an up-to-date look at Paula’s idiosyncratic hand-painted maps, part of her prolific artistic practice that complements her still-growing graphic legacy. The book also a visual record of contemporary New York’s urban fabric, indelibly transformed by the designer’s innovative approach to environmental graphics and identity design: from MoMA to Charter Schools; from the High Line to Shake Shack. Her logos for global corporations and cultural institutions have cemented her reputation as a giant of identity design. A large section of the book is devoted to the designer’s socially and politically motivated posters, New York Times Op-Ed illustrations and campaign work. In a long interview, Paula’s frank and open words lay bare the reality of design culture in the USA. The 326-page book is designed by Spin, under the creative direction of Tony Brook. Paula Scher, the ‘accidental postmodernist,’ has come to be seen as an emblem of American design: a ‘master conjurer of the instantly familiar.’ (ted.com)

Romanticism / Hugh Honour

Hugh Honour: Romanticism. Westview, Boulder, 1979, 415 oldal
ISBN: 0-06-430089-7

The shock of the intellectual and political upheavals of the late eighteenth century was felt throughout the civilized world from the United States to the Russian Empire. No artist was wholly immune to it. The influence of Romanticism--the artist's response to that shock--was all pervasive. As Hugh Honour writes: "To some degree all subsequent Western art derives from it just as all European history since 1789 has been to some extent a consequence of the French Revolution. Romantic ideas about artistic creativity, originality, individuality, authenticity and integrity and the Romantic conception of the meaning and purpose of works of art and the role of the artist continue to dominate aesthetic thought. So deeply are they embedded in our attitudes and ways of thinking that we are rarely aware of them."...

Raw design / [guest cur. by Glenn Adamson]

Raw design. Museum of Craft and Design, San Francisco, CA, 2018, 58 oldal
ISBN: 978-0-9760119-6-5

The biggest story in 21st-century design has undoubtedly been the rise of the digital. Armed with new tools, we are connecting to each other in unprecedented ways. This powerful reshaping of human experience has brought many positive changes, but also a sense of unease. Digital experiences are not necessarily scaled to the human body. They often bring with them a dizzying sense of being unmoored from physicality, lost in a maze of constant mediation. Raw Design marks an interesting moment in the history of technique. Rather than turning to long-established, complex repertoires like those of wood joinery and glass blowing, designers seem to prefer inventing new techniques, or else act as if their medium were being discovered for the first time. A publication accompanying the exhibition will feature a lead essay by guest curator Glenn Adamson and available for purchase in the museum store. Participating Artists include: Omer Arbel, Dana Barnes, Brooke Breckner, Scott Bodenner, Iris Eichenberg, Jes Fan, FormaFantasma, Karin Forslund, GT2P, Marlène Huissoud, Misha Kahn, Julia Kunin, Max Lamb, Beth Lipman, Julia Lohmann, Mieke Meijer, Myra Mimlitsch-Gray, Gaetano Pesce, Lex Pott, Jonathan Swanz, Brad Evan Taylor and Thaddeus Wolfe.

David Carson: 2ndsight : grafik design after the end of print

Carson, David: 2ndsight : grafik design after the end of print. Universe Publ., New York, 1997, 200 oldal
ISBN: 0-7893-0128-8

2ndsight is the sequel to The End of Print, the first monograph on David Carson's work. While The End of Print showed the world Carson's radical new approach, his rejection of the traditional 'rules' of communication, 2ndsight examines the creative process behind the work, and considers the broader implications of his intuitive approach to graphic design. Intuition is central to the book's thesis, and its meaning and influence is explored both in Lewis Blackwell's writing and in the evocative texts by leading designers and thinkers interspersed throughout the book. As well as presenting Carson's commercial work - his latest ideas in advertising, magazine and book design, web sites, film and video - 2ndsight examines work inspired by exhibitions, talks and workshops. The student workshops Carson conducts in design colleges around the world throw particular light on his creative process. The workings of these sessions are examined: their chief aim being not to teach computer skills or encourage participants to mimic the master, but to help them find their own voice. Finally, a conversation between Blackwell and Carson probes Carson's working methods - his collage technique of using two or more files at once on screen; of working in black and white; of moving to and from the computer, printing out each stage of a design before developing it further; his experimentation with the balance of type and image. Above all, his respect for intuition and his conviction that it is the key to truly individual graphic expression.

Milton Glaser : graphic design

Glaser, Milton: Milton Glaser : graphic design. Overlook , New York, 1983, 239 oldal
ISBN: 978-0-87951-188-3

"Milton Glaser: Graphic Design, is certainly a classic in the field. Still in print after more than twenty-five years, it also has gone through five foreign language editions. Elegant . . . a book in which the text and the picture positively embrace and dance together . . . to read this book and to look at the pictures is almost one and the same activity." The New York Times
