Описание: The Arabic-speaking world is growing in political and economic power, but for nonnative speakers, using Arabic script in graphic design can be daunting. This visual resource book, written by a designer-typographer from the Middle East with extensive experience working for Western agencies and type foundries, considers the challenges and pitfalls of producing work for a Middle Eastern audience, from cultural misunderstandings to the finer points of font design. Using vibrantly illustrated case studies, from logotype conversions for European and Middle Eastern television networks to websites and printed media, the book shows the importance of cultural knowledge to good design and demonstrates the evocative power of Arabic script.
An introductory volume, the book presents a brief history of Arabic calligraphy and modern type design. Two chapters are devoted to typography and logotype design, followed by a substantial section of case studies that give real-world examples and the lessons learned from them.
The only accessible book on the subject, Arabic for Designers will open up a new world of possibilities to students, practicing designers, and art directors, guiding them to a greater understanding of how to produce the most effective and enduring design solutions.

Описание: More and more of us are turning to the great outdoors when seeking peace, balance, and a touch of adventure to offset our daily grind. The Outsiders showcases the outlook and passions of the new creative scene that has emerged and draws inspiration from this development along with its original products, brands, and ideas.
The book captures the refreshing and evolving ethos of today’s smartly successful outdoor and lifestyle entrepreneurs and features interviews with key players from across the outdoor sector. Catering to modern globetrotters, these innovators are rethinking the ways in which the fundamental challenges posed by the wilderness meet the aesthetic needs of design-literate adventurers. The results are often radical, but always likeable with the occasional romantic or ironic wink.

Описание: W Magazine (W stands for World of Style) will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2012 with a book featuring the most fabulous high points over the last 40 years. W is an award winning publication, one of the world's greatest and best known fashion magazines. It was founded in 1971 as a sister publication to Women's Wear Daily and was owned by Fairchild Publications until it was purchased by Conde Nast in 1999. Its long time creative director Dennis Freedman and editorial director Patrick McCarthy left the magazine in 2010 and were replaced by Stefano Tonchi, who is now its editor in chief. Often the subject of controversy, W magazine is renowned for its provocative, influential and often groundbreaking fashion features by such photographers as Steven Klein, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Steven Meisel, Tim Walker, Craig McDean and Juergen Teller. W is the only fashion magazine that will dare to devote an entire magazine to one feature narrative by one photographer (such as Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt or Madonna, both by Steven Klein). W covers not only fashion & beauty, but everything style, design, celebrity and artistic related in not only American and European culture and society, but throughout the world. The book will be divided into three sections; Who, Where, and Wow, with a foreword by Stefano Tonchi and introductory essays to each of the three sections, one of which will be written by magazine contributor Lynn Hirschberg.

Описание: 21 | TWENTY ONE showcases designers living and working in Britain who have come to prominence since the millennium. They lead public taste and critical debate; they are the innovators and the explorers of new materials or processes; they are establishing new ways of working, and redefining what that work might be. Combining interviews with commentary and evaluation, Gareth Williams examines what design means and has meant to Britain and British identity, looking at the roles of government, museums, galleries, studios, the public, and the designers. Designers include El Ultimo Grito, Industrial Facility, Jaime Hayon, Troika and rAndom International, who have worked for brands such as British Airways, Camper, Droog, Muji, The Science Museum and MoMA.
Описание: The first twelve weeks of a kitten's life are filled with wonder. From the tender age of four weeks through twelve weeks, kittens develop their sense of sight, motor skills, and personality--and they learn how to play! Following in the pawprints of Puppyhood, Kittenhood captures twenty-five pure- and mixed-breed kittens during their adorable early weeks. These beautiful images, approximately 100 total, by photographer Sarah Beth Ernhart highlight the unique features of each pedigree while showcasing irresistible kitten cuteness: tiny wet noses, pink sandpaper tongues, big curious eyes, little paws and floppy tails. Packaged as a large-format hardcover with a jacket, Kittenhood features two spreads for each of the twenty-five kittens. The first spread shows a full, life-size photo with brief text: the kitten's name, breed, age and measurements. A few of the older kittens might even leap off the page! The second spread includes two or three images showing kittens at play, being curious, snuggling and more.
