Since signage systems are created to provide orientation, they must be universally legible and understood by people of all ages and culture. Signs must show the way, and also present the proper information at the proper location. By making effective use of graphics, colors and shapes, a signage system helps to create an identity for spaces. Signage Designs showcases a great variety of current examples from across the world, indoor and outdoor, ranging from individual buildings like museums, hospitals and stadiums, to larger contexts like subway systems, town districts or entire cities. This title is an essential reference for designers involved in communications, architects, interior designers and indeed for creative persons in all sectors.

Das internationale Schriftschaffen nach 1950 wurde maßgeblich geprägt vom Schweizer Adrian Frutiger. Sein Schriftprogramm Univers und die zum ISO-Standard erklärte, maschinenlesbare Schrift OCR-B sind ebenso Meilensteine wie die zur Frutiger weiterentwickelte Schrift der Pariser Flughäfen – ein Qualitätsstandard für Signalisationsschriften. Mit den Corporate Types prägte er Firmenauftritte wie den der japanischen Kosmetiklinie Shiseido. Insgesamt entstanden rund 50 Schriften, darunter Ondine, Méridien, Avenir und Vectora. Auf Gesprächen mit Frutiger basierend sowie auf umfangreichen Recherchen in Frankreich, England, Deutschland und der Schweiz, zeichnet die Publikation den gestalterischen Werdegang des Schriftkünstlers exakt nach. Es werden alle Schriften – vom Entwurf bis zur Vermarktung – abgebildet sowie mit Bezug zu Technik und zu artverwandten Schriften analysiert. Bisher unveröffentlichte, nicht realisierte Schriften sowie über 100 Logos vervollständigen das Bild. Mit dieser zweiten Auflage, einer korrigierten und durch einen Index erweiterten Studienausgabe, lässt sich Frutigers Werk noch besser erschließen.

Otl Aichers Texte sind Erkundungen einer "Welt als Entwurf". Sie gehören substantiell zu seiner Arbeit. In der Bewegung durch die Geschichte von Denken und Gestalten, Bauen und Konstruieren versichert er sich der Möglichkeiten, die Existenz menschlich einzurichten. Nach wie vor geht es um die Frage, unter welchen Voraussetzungen Zivilisationskultur herstellbar ist. Diese Voraussetzungen müssen erstritten werden gegen scheinbare Sachzwänge und geistige Ersatzangebote. Otl Aicher streitet gern. So enthält dieser Band neben Berichten aus der Praxis und historischen Exkursen zu Design und Architektur auch polemische Einlassungen zu kulturpolitischen Themen. Mit produktivem Eigen-Sinn streitet Aicher vor allem für die Erneuerung der Moderne, die sich weitgehend in ästhetischen Visionen erschöpft habe. Noch immer sei der "Kultursonntag" wichtiger als der Arbeitsalltag. Wolfgang Jean Stock

Currently there is nothing as comprehensive about this topic available. This new volume takes a methodical yet comprehensive approach to conveying the fundamentals of avant-garde, innovative, information design by examining history, theory, criticism, technology and media, process, method, and practice.

The back half of the book contains a wide range of case studies from design firms around the world so designers can see the techniques previously outlined in the first half of the book.
