Описание: Type Object is an intriguing collection of letters, but not as we know them; this collection takes letters into the third dimension using three dimensional design to re-define and re-interpret the meaning of letters that create words. These are interactive letters that crave your attention and challenge your perception, letters not just as a tool but as characters in their own right; letters that are tactile, bold, letters to hold, to think about, letters that want to come out and play! Words are the vehicle here for the letters that visually convey their meaning; for example a garden of letters growing out of the soil, entwined with ivy used to spell the word, 'earth' or a beautifully constructed ball of letters surrounded by butterflies and the word is naphthalene, the main ingredient of mothballs. Thought-provoking and exciting,letters to inspire discussion and create an emotional response; no longer the passive characters on the keyboard but personalities in their own right.

And theyre back in style. Drawn from a particularly rich period in the history of shadow type, from the 19th to the mid-20th century, this is the first compilation of popular, rare and forgotten three-dimensional letters from Germany, France, Britain, Italy and the United States, where the best examples were produced. Presented in compact form, with examples from some 300 sources compiled by the leading historian of graphic design, this lively publication, packed full of typographic ideas for any purpose, will amuse, enchant and inspire anyone aiming to impart depth to their design.
Part inspiration and part workbook, these hand-drawn type of images will inspire and excite any designer to draw and explore type. Drawing Type features real-world projects and sketchbooks of well-known type designers, including interviews about their processes. Playful, hand-drawn type can easily be used in a range of disciplines within design and illustration such as packaging, editorial, posters, advertising, online graphics, and signage; the hand-made aesthetic is more prevalent now than ever.
Alex Fowkes will help you to create custom lettering and typographic layouts. Alex encourages you to start drawing all kinds of typography, including serifs, sans serifs, and scripts. He provides ample examples of typefaces to draw inspiration from so you can become confident enough to draw your own.

Описание: The Evolution of Type takes the reader on a journey through the development of type design and typographic style from the mid-15th century to the present day, by way of 100 typefaces. Chosen to represent the key elements of style and form used by the punch cutters, calligraphers and designers of their day, and presented in chronological order according to release date, each typeface is discussed in terms of its origins and its impact on the design and print industry, and latterly the additional considerations for screen use. Versions released in metal-foundry type for hand-setting, as hot-metal type for the monotype and linotype machines, as phototype, and as digital revivals or originals, are covered in detail alongside information about the people responsible for the design and development of each adaptation of the typeface. Key glyphs from each face are annotated to indicate the specific features that mark out how typeface design has evolved over the last 500 or so years, and visual comparisons illustrate how typefaces created years ago have influenced the design of many contemporary releases. For the general reader, this book offers a thorough history of the typefaces we have been reading for decades; for typographers and designers, it is a valuable resource that will help to inform their choice of the most appropriate typeface for a project.

Описание: The book presents a comprehensive treatment of celestial navigation based upon the essential foundations of nautical astronomy and spherical trigonometry. Beginning with a discussion of position and time, it proceeds systematically to show how sextant observations coupled with time provide indispensable checks and information on course, distance, and position. Emphasizing computational rather than tabular solutions to sight reduction problems, while basic trigonometric formulae are developed, all computation is done with the most inexpensive hand calculator. The author also stresses the backgrounds of nautical astronomy, beyond the perfunctory routines of sight reduction. The reader, in other words, learns not only what, but why. While the treatment is directed toward the cruising sailor who wishes to plan and undertake oceanic voyages, it is sufficiently comprehensive to fulfill the needs of the professional mariner.
Описание: Playing with Type is a hands-on, playful approach to learning type application and principles. This engaging guide begins with an introduction to the philosophy of learning through the process of play. Along with a series of experimental design projects with an emphasis on type, the author provides designers with a "toolkit" of ideas and skills developed through the process of play. The awareness and sensitivity to type styles, forms, and type choices gained through these visual experiments will increase the designer's confidence in their personal and professional work. This book can be used in the classroom or independently, and readers can go directly to exercises that appeal to them.

Описание: "SPA-DE", as a unique publication that focuses on the interior designs of commercial spaces from around the world, has garnered acclaim among specialists in
this field. "SPA-DE" reports on cafes and restaurants, to boutiques and beauty salons, specialising in small-scale locations run by individuals. However this special edition, covers larger
retail stores, shopping malls, department stores, and other commercial venues that would otherwise slip through.
Larger facilities mean big-time clients, sizable design firms, and
a wide range of specialists. In fact, there are more than a few projects which encompass not just one location, but a series of stores that share a basic design format.Furthermore, they
often reach beyond architecture and interior design to incorporate product development, with a complex and strategic design plan necessary to handle store fixtures to environmental
graphics, signage, packaging, VMD, and advertising. There are a limited number of firms in any country that can maintain a consistent level in the design while managing the
development of a large-scale commercial facility.
These firms travel the globe to various commercial locations to pursue their work. From these design firms, fifteen companies
have been selected that have produced commercially successful projects and interesting designs.
