New Monochrome Graphics
Creators’ love for black and white is a constant. Used to be the height of imaging and now a creative attitude, the austerely simple yet expressive black and white enthral designers for their stack contrast and evocative power in graphics and body of text that no other colours can attain.
Black & White is an all-new edition focusing on monochromatic graphic art. Be it a brand element, an aesthetic statement or a low-cost solution, the 130 showcased print art, brand design, art installations and fashion items in this book manifest the versatility and dramatic appearance of black and white blended with photography, special printing, and sometimes shadows and light. In words and selected creative projects, the hard core of this global movement today expounds on their conscious decision to fix on this limited palette to create, despite the exhilarating colour trends and the many quality colour printing options to hand.
Focusing on how graphic designers tackle the ordering of number-heavy information, this book shows how the best design minds around grapple with timetables, annual reports and other data-rich documents. It also includes a chapter outlining the basic typographic and detailing rules relating to numbers.
Featuring the work of such names as Stefan Sagmeister, Karin von Ompteda, Joost Grootens, Socket Studio, Stapelberg & Fritz, Form, Willi Kunz, Helmut Schmid, Build and Cartlidge Levene, Numbers in Graphic Design is bursting with inspirational examples of how to approach almost any design situation featuring numbers.
Numbers in Graphic Design is the sourcebook for any designer who wants to be able to work with numbers creatively and with confidence.

Studio Craft & Technique is a one-stop handbook for undergraduate students of architecture. Based on the belief that technology is at the heart of design studies, this book encourages students to think of design and technology as an integrated whole.
We provide step-by-step techniques for skills that students use in their undergraduate studies, such as drawing, model making and surveying and explain the conventions of architectural representation. The book also explains the primary elements of construction and structure from first principles, using clear diagrams and drawings. Students will use this handbook on a daily basis in their design and technology studios through their first years of study.
Studio Craft & Technique has been recommended to first year students by The Bartlett School of Architecture.
