How do designers get ideas? Many spend their time searching for clever combinations of forms, fonts, and colors inside the design annuals and monographs of other designers' work. For those looking to challenge the cut-and-paste mentality there are few resources that are both informative and inspirational. In Graphic Design: The New Basics, Ellen Lupton, best-selling author of such books as Thinking with Type and Design It Yourself, and design educator Jennifer Cole Phillips refocus design instruction on the study of the fundamentals of form in a critical, rigorous way informed by contemporary media, theory, and software systems
Our bestselling introduction to graphic design is now available in a revised and updated edition. In Graphic Design: The New Basics, bestselling author Ellen Lupton (Thinking with Type, Type on Screen) and design educator Jennifer Cole Phillips explain the key concepts of visual language that inform any work of design, from logo or letterhead to a complex website. Through visual demonstrations and concise commentary, students and professionals explore the formal elements of twodimensional design, such as point, line, plane, scale, hierarchy, layers, and transparency. This revised edition replaces sixty-four pages of the original publication with new content, including new chapters on visualizing data, typography, modes of representation, and Gestalt principles, and adds sixteen pages of new student and professional work covering such topics as working with grids and designing with color.
"Modern architecture, except on its engineering side, has not yet found itself." So stated Claude Bragdon in this 1915 book. An architect himself-and one of the most fascinating thinkers of the early 20th century-Bragdon here blames the urban disconnect from the natural world for the dearth of ornamentation to rival ancient civilizations, which drew inspiration from nature. As an alternative, Bragdon offers geometry as an appropriately modern, scientific inducement to ornament, and delves into the mystical mathematics of magic lines and magic squares, of tesseracts and hyperspheres, demonstrating their beauty and grace. Complete with charming line drawings of historical architecture and new, geometrically playful forms, this is a book artists and beauty-seekers today will continue to find provocative. Other works by Bragdon available from Cosimo Classics: Yoga for You, The Eternal Poles, Four-Dimensional Vistas, The Beautiful Necessity, Architecture and Democracy, Episodes from An Unwritten History, and A Primer of Higher Space (The Fourth Dimension). American architect, stage designer, and writer CLAUDE FAYETTE BRAGDON (1866-1946) helped found the Rochester Architectural Club, in the city where he made his greatest mark as a building designer with structures including Rochester Central Station, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the First Universalist Church; he also designed Peterborough Bridge in Ontario. In later life, Bragdon worked on Broadway as scenic designer for 1930s productions of Cyrano de Bergerac and Hamlet, among others.
