Item description for Signs and Symbols (Communicating with Pattern) by Mark Hampshire...
Rich, stimulating, and varied creative sourcebook with a wealth of material for designers
The latest in the highly collectable Communicating with Pattern series, Signs and Symbols showcases stunning examples of designs that incorporate all manner of signs, symbols, and glyphs, explaining how they can be used in contemporary design to communicate a variety of messages and influences.
Signs and Symbols explores the meaning and origin of these familiar forms, starting with the earliest graphics known to man: cave paintings and hieroglyphics. Corporate logos, club motifs, coats of arms, political insignia, and religions symbols represent authority and membership. They are also an essential part of daily life, in the form of wayfinding tools such as road signs, alphabets, icons, and signage.
This book is a source of inspiration for designers across disciplines using examples of graphics, packaging, interiors, textiles, products, and more.
