"In manifestos, broadsides, articles, and conference papers, designers and design observers grapple with the critical issues of Modernism, commercialism, aesthetics, feminism, traditionalism versus progressivism, and social responsibility.

Seventy-nine short essays on design by Michael Bierut( Book )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Seventy-nine Short Essays on Design brings together the best of designer Michael Bierut's critical writing serious or humorous, flattering or biting, but always on the mark. Bierut is widely considered the finest observer on design writing today. Covering topics as diverse as Twyla Tharp and ITC Garamond, Bierut's intelligent and accessible texts pull design culture into crisp focus. He touches on classics, like Massimo Vignelli and the cover of The Catcher in the Rye, as well as newcomers, like McSweeney's Quarterly Concern and color-coded terrorism alert levels. Along the way Nabakov's Pale Fire; Eero Saarinen; the paper clip; Celebration, Florida; the planet Saturn; the ClearRx pill bottle; and paper architecture all fall under his pen. His experience as a design practitioner informs his writing and gives it truth. In Seventy-nine Short Essays on Design, designers and nondesigners alike can share and revel in his insights

Abbott Miller : design and content by J. Abbott Miller( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Open Book is the first monograph on the preeminent graphic designer Abbott Miller. Recipient of numerous design honors including the Chrysler Award for Innovation in Design, Miller is known for his pioneering graphic work as a partner at Pentagram, where he leads a team designing books, magazines, catalogs, identities, exhibitions, and creating editorial projects. His work is often concerned with the cultural role of design and the public life of the written word. Collaborating with performers, curators, artists, photographers, writers, publishers, corporations, and institutions, he has created a unique practice that crosses back and forth between the printed page and the physical space of exhibitions. In his work as a designer, editor, and writer he has pioneered the concept of the designer as author, and he has collaborated with artists such as Matthew Barney, Yoko Ono, Geoffrey Beene, Philip Glass, Twyla Tharp, and Nam June Paik, among many others. His clients include Vitra, Knoll, Harley-Davidson, and Steuben, as well as many museums and publishers. Miller presents his work as a catalog of design strategies, emerging from the unique circumstances of form and content. In four chapters "Books," "Exhibitions," "Magazines," and "Identity" Open Book provides insight into Miller's working process and showcases all of his best designs. Miller talks freely about influences on his practice, his ideas, his experiences working with curators, artists, and clients, as well as the lessons he's learned. A foreword by Ellen Lupton situates his work in the context of contemporary design. Open Book, beautifully produced and illustrated with more than four hundred images, is a must-have for anyone interested in design and the visual arts"--
Thoughts on design by Paul Rand( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the seminal texts of graphic design, Paul Rand's Thoughts on Design is now available for the first time since the 1970s. Writing at the height of his career, Rand articulated in his slender volume the pioneering vision that all design should seamlessly integrate form and function. This facsimile edition preserves Rand's original 1947 essay with the adjustments he made to its text and imagery for a revised printing in 1970, and adds only an informative and inspiring new foreword by design luminary Michael Bierut. As relevant today as it was when first published, this classic treatise is an indispensable addition to the library of every designer." -- Publisher's description

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a monograph, manual and manifesto by one of the world's leading graphic designers. Protégé of design legend Massimo Vignelli and partner in the New York office of the international design firm Pentagram, Michael Bierut has had one of the most varied careers of any living graphic designer. The 35 projects Bierut presents in this book illustrate the breadth of activity that graphic design encompasses today, his goal being to demonstrate not a single ideology, but the enthusiastically eclectic approach that has been a hallmark of his career. Each project is told in Bierut's own entertaining voice and shown through historic images, preliminary drawings (including full-size reproductions of the notebooks he has maintained for over 30 years), working models and rejected alternatives, as well as the finished work. Along the way, he provides insights into the creative process, his working life, his relationship with clients, and the struggles that any design professional faces in bringing innovative ideas to the world. Inspiring, informative and authoritative, How to...is set to be the bible of graphic design ideas
