Graphic Design Sourcebook surveys the most visually stunning and thought-provoking work from 100 of the world’s most exciting and ground-breaking practitioners. This informative guide to contemporary graphic design is beautifully illustrated with a wide variety of projects, from websites, apps, banner ads, packaging and infographics to exhibition design, social issue posters, corporate branding campaigns and interactive media design. Each entry includes detailed biographic information, a selection of the designer’s best work, and a short prйcis on the designer’s approach, written by themselves.
The introduction assesses the status of graphic design in the new digital media age and attempts to predict its future trajectory with the advent of increasingly advanced 3D technologies and the erosion of conventional advertising campaign conduits. Also addressed is the return to traditional processes favoured by many modern designers.
A unique insight into today’s ever-changing world of contemporary graphic design, Graphic Design Sourcebook is an essential guide for anyone interested in the power of visual communication, and is an absolute must-have publication for students and professional designers alike.
