Design by numbers by John Maeda( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maeda, partiendo de la idea de que el ordenador no es un sustituto del pincel y la pintura, sino un medio artístico de pleno derecho, desarrolla en esta obra un lenguaje de programación denominado DBN ("design by numbers"), disponible de manera libre en Internet y destinado para artistas y diseñadores. Este sencillo programa cuenta con una ventana para escribir códigos de forma simple, usando un léxico parecido al de los diseñadores, y otra ventana para ver los resultados. Así consigue acercar a los diseñadores el mundo de las matemáticas y viceversa y a su vez, le permite ilustrar a sus alumnos el potencial del diseño informático

The storm of creativity by Kyna Leski( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although each instance of creativity is singular and specific, Kyna Leski tells us, the creative process is universal. Artists, architects, poets, inventors, scientists, and others all navigate the same stages of the process in order to discover something that does not yet exist. All of us must work our way through the empty page, the blank screen, writer's block, confusion, chaos, and doubt. In this book, Leski draws from her pbservations and experiences as a teacher, student, maker, writer, and architect to describe the workings of the creative process"--Jacket
The art of typewriting : 570+ illustrations by Marvin A Sackner( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beloved typewriter--its utilitarian beauty, the pleasing percussive action of striking its keys, the singularity of the impressed page--is enjoying a genuine renaissance across the creative industries. In this authoritative publication, the founders of the Sackner Archive of Visual and Concrete Poetry, the largest such collection in the world, apply their experience, mining the collection they have created over four decades to present examples produced by more than 200 of the world's finest typewriter artists. From the early ornamental works produced by secretaries in the late nineteenth century to more recent works that consider the unique position of the typewritten document in the digital age, there is an astonishing and delightful range of creativity in every artwork

In/visible : graphic data revealed, with a foreword by Emma Presler( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each year, the New York chapter of the AIGA invites a group of emerging designers to participate in the Fresh Dialogue forum. In/Visible: Graphic Data Revealed brings together a diverse group of information graphics designers for a lively discussion about the challenges they face visualizing information. Steve Duenes manages the New York Times print and online graphics department; Andrew Kuo attempts to categorize unmeasurable human emotions through meticulous charts and diagrams; Fernanda Vigas of IBM's Visual Communication Lab is the cocreator of the Many Eyes social website that encourages members to upload, interpret, and revisualize one another's data. Their discussion, moderated by Rhode Island School of Design president John Maeda, covers a range of current and anticipated trends in visual journalism, including issues such as data integrity and visual ethics, judicious simplicity versus seductive complexity, and the ever-increasing demand for dynamic information. As designers, they share an amazing ability to empower readers by translating complicated data into visual ideas whose understanding we all depend on to make sense of our everyday world

Designing design by Ken'ya Hara( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in Undetermined and English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Representing a new generation of designers in Japan, Kenya Hara (born 1958) pays tribute to his mentors, using long overlooked Japanese icons and images in much of his work. In Designing Design , he impresses upon the reader the importance of emptiness in both the visual and philosophical traditions of Japan, and its application to design, made visible by means of numerous examples from his own work: Hara for instance designed the opening and closing ceremony programs for the Nagano Winter Olympic Games 1998. In 2001, he enrolled as a board member for the Japanese label MUJI and has considerably moulded the identity of this successful corporation as communication and design advisor ever since. Kenya Hara, alongside Naoto Fukasawa one of the leading design personalities in Japan, has also called attention to himself with exhibitions such as Re-Design: The Daily Products of the 21st Century of 2000." --Publisher
Processing : a programming handbook for visual designers and artists by Casey Reas( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an introduction to the concepts of computer programming within the context of the visual arts. It offers a reference and text for Processing (, an open-source programming language that can be used by students, artists, designers, architects, researchers, and anyone who wants to program images, animation, and interactivity. Tutorial units make up the bulk of the book and introduce the syntax and concepts of software (including variables, functions, and object-oriented programming), cover such topics as images and drawing in relation to software, and feature many short, prototypical example programs with related images and explanations. More advanced professional projects from such domains as animation, performance, and typography are discussed in interviews with their creators. "Extensions" present concise introductions to further areas of investigation, including computer vision, sound, and electronics. The Processing software and all of the code presented can be downloaded and run for future exploration."--Jacket
Visionaire 34 : Paris, Dior Hommes, solitaire by Celilia Dean( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our millennium issue: ''the greatest story ever told'' retold in images by modern-day artists and photographers. The intent was to make an issue that was visually provocative but not blasphemous or gratuitously shocking. We worked closely with Dr. Royal Rhodes, professor of religion at Kenyon College, who helped us excerpt passages from the King James Bible. Mario Testino photographed Adam and Eve (dressed in Martine Sitbon and poised to prune with Hermes hedge clippers); Wolfgang Tillmans contributed the Crucifixion; Andreas Gursky's image of a rave became the Exodus; Mary Ellen Mark envisioned a modern day Mary and Joseph; and Steven Meisel imagined the Apocalypse in a series of eerily foreboding fashion images inspired by the painter Odd Nerdrum." -- Publisher's website
