Marks of excellence : the history and taxonomy of trademarks by Per Mollerup( Book )

47 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The core of this book is a full classification of hundreds of trade marks: covering pictures, names and abbreviations. The author analyses and describes the history of trademarks and shows how they have transcended barriers of language and time
Collapsible : the genius of space-saving design by Per Mollerup( Book )

19 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first general introduction to collapsibles - objects that, in one way or another, fold out for action and fold up for storage. 'Collapsible' used as a noun is a neologism. This book is the first to use the world to refer to any object that is in some way collapsible, rather than to describe it in terms of that quality. The selection of objects illsutrated in this book are heavily biased towards ingenuity. This book is not a manual, but an album for inspiration
Marks of excellence : the function and variety of trademarks by Per Mollerup( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a thorough exploration of the trademark, its history, development, style, classification and relevance in today's world. A brief history is given of the origins of the trademark in heraldry, monograms, owner's marks and certificates of origin. The next chapters study corporate identity and communication design with an emphasis on sign theory. The core of the book is a comprehensive taxonomy of trademarks covering name marks, abbreviations and all kinds of picture marks. Following the taxonomy, the classification leads to an alphabetical index of trademark themes from animals to word puzzles. This index is illustrated by a selection of the world's best trademarks - the marks of excellence from which this book takes its name. The final section of the book covers the development of trademarks over time and across the boundaries of language and space."--Jacket

Data design : visualising quantities, locations, connections by Per Mollerup( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aighly practical guide to the graphic representation of quantities, locations, connections and other forms of data, founded on solid design principles. Easy to understand, the book has been created to assist designers, researchers, and writers in expressing visually through points, lines, and areas that which by words, letters, and numbers alone often have difficulty communicating. It describes problems, principles, and solutions for the visual display of information, and presents real-world didactic examples, taken from, for example, the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal. The book's theoretical basis is strong, but not at the expense of clarity; readers will understand both what to do and why. After a number of introductory chapters that describe what is common to all types of visual displays, the book continues with three main parts that deal with displays showing quantities, locations, and connections. Data Design is an essential guide to how data can, and should be, presented in order to effortlessly communicate information with clarity, elegance and style. Highly illustrated and with beautiful simplicity, Data Design is an indispensable guide to the clear and effective presentation of information

Simplicity : a matter of design by Per Mollerup( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the world becomes increasingly complex and complicated, simplicity becomes increasingly in demand. We all seek simplicity in small or large measure. Simplicity: A Matter of Design offers a set of terms that will allow us to discuss simplicity in design with precision. It looks into the basics of simplicity and researches more in depth three aspects of design: functionality (simplicity for comfort), aesthetics (simplicity for pleasure) and ethics (simplicity for conscience). There is an extra chapter on simplicity in communication. If there is one quality all designers are seeking it is simplicity. Nevertheless, very little is written on the subject. Simplicity: A matter of design is a very clearly written and illustrated must read for students and practitioners who are intrigued by the concept of simplicity
Wayshowing>wayfinding : basic & interactive by Per Mollerup( Book )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the completely renewed edition of the standard reference book Wayshowing. Fully updated with digital signage systems and has much more tool-oriented, practical content. Moreover, all signage examples are newly selected for this edition. Wayshowing > Wayfinding is divided into three parts. These deal with problems, principles and practices. First, the book discusses the problems of wayfinding. What are we looking for when we try to find our way in an un-known country? The answers are richer than you might initially expect. The section on principles takes its point of departure in non-signs acting as signs. It then goes on to discuss the concepts of wayfinding and wayshowing. Next, it presents several theoretical and practical aspects of signs and their functions. After a discussion on signposting for people with impaired vision, this section of the book ends with a chapter on planning. The section on practices examines cases from environments that depend on signage, including hospitals, airports, railways, museums, and cities. The cases include traditional print solutions, as well as all types of digital wayfinding/ wayshowing."--Publisher description
