You have a concept. You are happy with the design. But have you considered the format? The new "Basics Design 01: Format "helps designers to make the most of the opportunities presented by the space and dimension of their work. This new edition of a best-selling title is both an inspirational sourcebook and a practical guide for the modern designer who wants to move away from a purely utilitarian approach to format.
Format is a tool of communication which is often underrated or underused. Your chosen format is your point of contact with the user. Can new media be exploited to use your space more creatively?

"Format" will help you answer these questions and more, leaving you refreshed and stimulated to try out new ideas for your next project.
A huge selection of exemplary design work, industry interviews and activities encourages experimentation with a number of different formats.

Customer review: This book will be useful for anyone who is interested in Graphic design or like me studying in uni or on foundation. It has a lot to say about graphics, some things I never considered when doing my work, particularly the chapter about the context of communication as well the bits of theory and history of design. Its written in a very approachable manner and isn't as boring and repetitive as other books on theory of design I have read .

Covered! - Classic Record Sleeves & Their Imitators (Paperback, first): Jan Bellekens Covered! - Classic Record Sleeves & Their Imitators (Paperback, first)
Jan Bellekens; Edited by Simon Robinson
R422 R350 Discovery Miles 3 500 Save R72 (17%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

You're browsing through some albums or CDs and all of a sudden one crops up which causes a moment of recognition and a "haven't I seen this cover before somewhere?" The answer is that you might well have done. For just as popular music of the present day seems to rifle the albums and bands of earlier generations, so the sleeve designers also often lean on the past for inspiration. Sometimes this is done by way of a deliberate reference point. In other cases the band might be wanting to pay homage to their influences, or peers. It might simply be that they have just seen an old cover which they like so much they want to borrow it. On other occasions the similarities are less well intended, designed to mimic or (dare we say it) even poke fun at classic designs and bands. Sometimes the new covers are simply a deliberate spoof of a well-known piece of artwork, done for subversive or mischievous reasons. So you get Ian Gillan of Deep Purple, just kicked out of the group and understandably angry at them, referencing one of his former band's classic covers, but highlighting himself and blurring away the rest of the group on purpose. Then there is comedian Barry Humphries commissioning a very clever pastiche of the familiar Sound Of Music album cover, only with himself in a frock dancing up the hill instead of Julie Andrews. Paul Weller's former band The Jam did an album called Sound Affects, and wanted a cover which recalled the pioneering series of BBC Radio sound effects albums of the sixties, a knowing design which only older fans would have even been aware of. Perhaps one of the most famous examples is that of the Clash single London Calling, which brought together a photograph of the arch Punks trashing their guitars and lettering lifted from an early iconic Elvis Presley sleeve. The list goes on. For this fascinating book, Belgian based collector Jan Bellekens has scoured the second hand stores and record fairs of Europe and assembled an amazing collection, of which this book contains a selection of over 650 sleeves. The original covers are shown alongside their newer cousins, with explanatory notes for music fans and designers.

Arrows, swashes, swooshes, globes, sunbursts and parallel, vertical and horizontal lines, words, letters, shapes and pictures. Logos are the most ubiquitous and essential of all graphic design devices, representing ideas, beliefs and, of course, things. They primarily identify products, businesses and institutions, but they are also associated, hopefully in a positive way, with the ethos or philosophy of those entities. The 50 logos in this book are examples of good ideas in the service of representation, reputation and identification.
