Item description for Contemporary Graphic Design by Charlotte Fiell & Peter Fiell...

Packing a powerful visual punch: contemporary avant-garde graphic design This compendium showcases the extraordinary cutting-edge work of 100 of the world's most progressive graphic designers, from the hard-hitting political messages of Jonathan Barnbrook to the lyrical digital compositions of Peter Saville to the iconoclastic imagery of Stefan Sagmeister. Alongside the array of visually stunning and thought-provoking advertisements, CD covers, posters, packaging, websites, and corporate identities are texts by each designer expressing his or her individual approach to graphic design practice as well as personal insights into the motivations that lie behind the work. An accompanying introductory essay highlights the current issues surrounding graphic design practice, from the ascendancy of digital tools to the amorality of consumerism. By presenting a provocative survey of the latest, most experimental and forward-looking graphic design from around the globe, this exciting book provides a unique and totally unforgettable snapshot of where the discipline stands today and hopefully offers directions for its future. Contemporary Graphic Design is absolutely essential to anyone interested in the power of images. The list of entries includes: Jonathan Barnbrook, The Designers Republic, FUEL, Fernando Guti?rrez, Hideki Inaba, KesselsKramer, Scott King, Christian K?sters, J?rg Lehni, Karel Martens, ME Company, M/M (Paris), Martijn Oostra, Gabor Palotai, Stefan Sagmeister, Peter Saville, Studio Boot, Sweden Graphics, Omar Vulpinari, Martin Woodtli

Reviews - What do customers think about Contemporary Graphic Design?

Im very happy  Apr 18, 2008
Im pretty happy with my purchase it comes on time and in good shape to thanks
Great Design Inside Out  Jan 2, 2008
I got this book after a VERY long wait (nothing to do with this site, Taschen delayed its publication for months and months...) and I could not be happier with it.

The waiting was well worth it, Taschen prints great products and this thick, colorful book is no exception, you get great design from the plastic jacket, to the silky pages that are very well printed (full yellow pages with no banding, WOW!).

About the content:
Interesting, up to date and very pleasing to the eye (even if you're not into graphic design you want to buy this book and have it sit on your coffee table, it looks great as an object too). You get lots of cases/projects from various places and eclectic cultures.

I highly recommend buying this book if you work or want to work in graphic design.
