Item description for Communicating with Pattern: Stripes (Communicating with Pattern) by Mark Hampshire...

Unique showcase exploring the use of stripes for visual communication across design disciplines.

The fact-packed Communicating with Pattern series presents designers with a complete vocabulary of pattern as visual communication. Stripes is a stunning collection of striped design from the worlds of textiles, fashion, interiors, architecture, graphics, product, and industrial design, together with comments from some of the featured creators, giving designers an understanding of the graphic language of stripes.

From Adidas sneakers to City pinstripes and share-dealers' shirts, from barcodes to soccer shirts, stripes signify membership and allegiance. But also the opposite: in nature, stripes communicate danger. Stripes can be bright, childlike, and bold, but also sober, conservative, and exclusive. In art, stripes stimulate the eye in the work of artists such as Mark Rothko. In fashion, they can be formal or strident witness brands as diverse as Jean-Paul Gaultier, Mary Quant, Gucci, and Paul Smith. All this and more is covered in this indispensable book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Communicating with Pattern: Stripes (Communicating with Pattern)?

An inspiration  Jul 28, 2007
I was fascinated by this book. I already owned Circles and couldn't wait for Stripes to come out. I thought it would be very difficult to fill a whole book with stripes but the author managed it, finding stripes in unexpected places. It's the sort of book you can just dip into, look at a few pages and then view the world in a different way. There is a good balance between stripes used by designers, past and present, and those found all around us. I learned a lot and found it inspirational in my artwork.
