von Huygen, Frederike

A new, detailed monograph about Wim Crouwel: graphic designer and exhibition designer who defined the look of post war Holland with his studio Total Design.

Where Did Issey Come From? The Work Of Issey Miyake

Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake was born in Hiroshima and studied graphic design at the Tama Art University in Tokyo, graduating in 1964. Following that, he spent time in Paris and New York City before returning to Tokyo in 1970, where he founded the Miyake Design Studio, a high-end producer of women’s fashion. Today he has become the kind of person who makes one wonder, “What kind of place could he possibly come from?” His creative energy seems like something from science fiction, perhaps even extraterrestrial. Part biography, part monograph, this volume dives into Miyake’s extraordinary world of design, tracing his roots through the years.

Nasa - Graphic Design Guide

The binder containing NASA's visual identity guidelines is a strange object. This original visual communications system designed and augmented by Richard Danne and Bruce Blackburn from 1975 on, was rescinded in 1992. It has resurfaced on the internet these last years in blogs, and was made available to the public by NASA as a PDF document before being reprinted in an expanded deluxe edition by Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth in 2015. It is an exhaustive presentation of visual identity – from letterheads to the markings on the space shuttle Discovery—and thus allows the reader to apprehend the different formal, political and technical scales of the use of signs.

Usha Doshi - Creating With Shapes

2018

Produced by Usha Doshi, a member of COS design studio since 2007, this book explores the possibility of creating garments using seven basic shapes – square, rectangle, triangle, diamond, circle, oval, and octagon. According to Doshi, the conception of the method and techniques happened accidentally, as she observed her granddaughters experimenting with fabric cut-outs. She joined in, and soon discovered that these shapes could be used to form intricate folds, drapes, and pleats, without using excessive fabric or complex darts and seams. With clearly drawn diagrams and beautiful photography, the book is intended to inspire creativity across all disciplines.
