Inspiration von 50 Meistern ihres Fachs

Gutes Grafikdesign basiert neben eigenen Ideen und Kreativität auf Schlüsselelementen, die durchaus erlernt und trainiert werden können. Hierfür analysieren Steven Heller und Gail Anderson herausragende Arbeiten der weltweit renommiertesten Gestalter mit: Von Michael Bierut, Jan Tschichold, Anton Stankowski, Neville Brody und Jessica Hische über Fons Hickmann, Paul Rand und Stefan Sagmeister bis hin zu Seymour Chwast, Otl Aicher, Paul Sahre und Christopher Niemann – erstklassige Projekte von fünfzig Kreativen werden hinsichtlich Kreativität und Techniken beleuchtet. Wie lassen sich Informationen klarer visualisieren? Wie können Lösungen emotional aufgeladen werden? Schließlich bringen die Autoren Handwerk und Konzeption zusammen, erklären, wie sich die Form auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise um den Content schmiegen kann – humorvoll, typografisch oder aber mit dem Spiel von Perspektiven. Last, but not least widmet sich ein ausführliches Kapitel dem Storytelling. Ein umfassendes Arbeitsbuch also, das gerade Newcomer bestens durch ihre Ausbildung begleiten wird.

Ästhetik und Programmierung am MIT Media Lab

Mit seinen unkonventionellen Thesen zum Umgang mit Computern im Bereich der Grafik hat der amerikanische Design- und Informatikprofessor John Maeda die Grafikwelt schokkiert. Er weist nach, dass nahezu alle zeitgenssischen Grafiker mit vorgefertigten Programmen arbeiten, durch die sie zu abhngigen Anwendern vorgefertigter Industrienormen werden. Somit bestimmen das Programm und seine Mglichkeiten das Endprodukt - und nicht mehr die Intuition und Absicht des Gestalters, der damit den zentralen Zugang zum schpferischen Prozess verliert. Dagegen setzt Maeda seine Vorstellungen, dass, wer wirklich schpferisch ttig sein will, wieder programmieren lernen muss: DNB = Design by Numbers heit sein selbst entwickelter, interaktiver Grundkurs der Programmierung, der der individuellen Kreativitt keine Programm(ier)grenzen setzt. Creative Code dokumentiert, dass DNB fr eine breite Schicht von Anwendern erlern- und anwendbar ist und prsentiert von Maeda ausgewhlte und kommentierte Arbeiten seiner Studenten.

Jan van Toorn is one of the most significant and influential Dutch graphic designers to have emerged since the early 1960s. His designs persistently call attention to their status as visual contrivances, obliging the viewer to make an effort to process their complexities. Van Toorn wants the public to measure the motives of both the client and the designer who mediates the client's message against their own experiences of the world. He hoped in this way to stimulate a more active and skeptical view of art, communication, media ownership and society. Projects such as Van Toorn's posters and catalogues for the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven and his long-running series of calendars for the printing firm Mart.Spruijt are powerful demonstrations of graphic design used as a means of commentary and as a tool of critique. Later, as director of the Jan van Eyck Academy, Van Toorn drew together all the strands of his critical practice into a multi-levelled educational initiative that urged designers to think harder about design's role in shaping contemporary reality.

Der geniale Architekt und Entwerfer Le Corbusier (1887-1965) erkannte die Wichtigkeit klarer graphischer Gestaltungskonzepte und sorgte dafür, dass seine Arbeiten bereits im Planungsstadium ausführlich fotografisch dokumentiert wurden. Anschließend kümmerte er sich dann persönlich um die Publikation zahlreicher Bücher, die unterschiedlichstes Material seines Schaffens einem breiten Publikum optimal aufbereitet zugänglich machen sollten. Denn gerade im Hinblick auf die suggestive Kraft der Fotografie, die er bei seiner Arbeit gekonnt einzusetzen verstand, war Le Corbusier seiner Zeit weit voraus. Der prächtige Band öffnet den Blick für einen bislang weniger bekannten, aber doch so wesentlichen Aspekt seines Schaffens.

Graphic Design in Urban Environments introduces the idea of a category of designed graphic objects that significantly contribute to the functioning of urban systems. These elements, smaller than buildings, are generally understood by urban designers to comprise such phenomena as sculpture, clock towers, banners, signs, large screens, the portrayal of images on buildings through "smart screens,†? and other examples of what urban designers call "urban objects.†?The graphic object as it is defined here also refers to a range of familiar things invariably named in the literature as maps, street numbers, route signs, bus placards, signs, architectural communication, commercial vernacular, outdoor publicity, lettering, banners, screens, traffic and direction signs and street furniture. One can also add markings of a sports pitch, lighting, bollards, even red carpets or well dressings. By looking at the environment, and design and deconstructing form and context relationships, the defining properties and configurational patterns that make up graphic objects are shown in this book to link the smallest graphic detail (e.g. the number 16) to larger symbolic statements (e.g. the Empire State Building). From a professional design practice perspective, a cross section through type, typographic, graphic and urban design will provide a framework for considering the design transition between alphabets, writing systems, images (in the broadest sense) and environments.
