Item description for Squares, Checks, and Grids (Communicating with Pattern) by Mark Hampshire...
A unique showcase exploring the use of pattern for visual communication across design disciplines.
Communicating with Pattern: Squares, Checks, and Grids is a celebration of the squarest, most linear patterns in every design discipline.
Squares and checks represent order, mathematics, technical precision, minimalism, and modernism. From graphs and grids, to pixels and road signs, squares and checks make up the framework, the very map of our existence. They are also embedded in the very weave of our history, from Wicca and Christian iconography to traditional checked and tartan cloths.
This book is a visual homage to squares and checks, an inspirational graphic collection of squares and checks from all environments, an exciting sourcebook of pattern ideas for designers across disciplines.
Rich, stimulating, and varied creative sourcebook with a wealth of material for designers
Part of the ultimate pattern bible: the Communicating with Pattern series
