Communicate : independent British graphic design since the sixties by Rick Poynor( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1960s youth culture and pop music became an important influence on British design. Key examples include the pop art collages of artists like Richard Hamilton and the psychedelic, punk, and new wave aesthetics of groups like Roxy Music and Pink Floyd. Images and illustrations were used in balance with letterforms to convey design concepts and ideas. The influence of popular culture is still relevant to contemporary British designers. Communicate focuses on the smaller independent design studios and teams that are credited with producing the most creative and innovative design over the past four decades and explores how and why British design has developed during this period."--Jacket

Magazine covers by David Crowley( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The magazine cover has always been a formidable selling tool. Far more than in any other form of printed media, it is the cover that sells. Today, more than a century since the first boom for mass-market magazines, it is possible to look back and see how the magazine cover provided the canvas for some of the world's greatest directors, but also it has created lasting icons, from Richard Nixon on the cover of Time to Muhammad Ali's depiction as a martyr for Esquire." "Magazine Covers is an unparalleled survey of the best of British, American, and European magazine and periodical cover designs in the 20th and 21st centuries, from Man about Town to Dazed and Confused. Representative examples of the very best covers are chosen by design expert David Crowley to explain the methodology, motivations, and aims of the art directors and their designers, and to show how magazine covers are closely linked to the social and political events of the times. Thematic chapters explore prevalent trends occurring throughout magazine history including the high profile of illustrations, from late 19th-century satire magazines to the present day; photojournalism and the response to current affairs; and celebrities and popular culture." "With over 300 illustrations of popular and more avant-garde examples, Magazine Covers is a social and cultural history, presenting a unique documentation of the history of the medium - required reading for all design students, designers, and vintage magazine collectors."--Jacket

Designing everyday life by Muzej za arhitekturo in oblikovanje( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Organized by Slovenia's Museum of Architecture and Design, the Biennial of Design (BIO) brings together over a period of six months more than one hundred designers and artists from around the world who, together, engage in large-scale collaborative design projects. One of the oldest design events in the world, the Biennial also stands apart for its focus on the capacity of design to solve problems affecting everyday life, as well as its eschewal of the traditional award system, opting instead to reward successful collaboration. In September 2014, eleven teams met at the BIO 50, the biennial's twenty-fourth edition, to present projects that respond to topics ranging from affordable living to nanotourism. One project, for instance, suggests ways in which we might reclaim public space to encourage walking within urban areas. Another considers how a country's rich craft tradition might be better brought to bear on contemporary design. Still another laments the disposability of modern appliances. A companion to the most recent Biennial, Designing Everyday Life compiles more than two hundred photographs, diagrams, and sketches, as well as essays on the history and legacy of the event and interviews with New York Times design critic Alice Rawsthorn and industrial designers Konstantin Grcic and Saša Maechtig

The world goes pop by Elsa Coustou( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This groundbreaking book surveys the concurrent engagements with the spirit of Pop throughout the world, from the frequently studied activity in the United States, England, and France to less well-known developments in Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. One of the first publications to examine Pop art with this global scope, it explores the wide-ranging movements that developed in different continents, such as Nouveau Realisme, Neo Dada, New Figuration, Cronica de la Realidad, and Saqqakhaneh or Spiritual Pop. This unique presentation offers the opportunity to compare how Pop art around the world differed due to geography, local traditions, and different cultures' social and political underpinnings. Fascinating essays touch upon key themes that factored into various Pop movements, including feminism, political representation, sexual politics, and seriality. A bold design and 200 striking illustrations showcase pieces by more than 70 artists, many of whose works have never been exhibited outside their home nations. The book also features a combined interview with a number of the living artists featured within, giving important insight into the thoughts and processes of Pop's international practitioners."
