Reviews - What do customers think about Infiltrate: The Front Lines of the NYC Design Scene?
insightful and entertaining Apr 5, 2005
this book is my best design purchase in years. it's really insightful and entertaining. design journalism has become stale and most publications are just reprinting press releases they receive from the featured companies. gelman manages to reveal personalities of his subjects. Being an insider he can't be fooled and doesn't take s**t from anyone. it also has a highest concentration of very smart cerebral work, very fresh and energetic.
Infiltrate Apr 1, 2005
I love this book's refreshingly unpretentious method of approaching graphic designers in NYC. Not only are superstar names included in the book but a whole gamut of talented and emerging designers. The interviews are compelling because Gelman, the interviewer and a major graphic designer himself, creates an environment for each designer that allows for spontaneous, truthful discussions. Not to mention the fact that the book itself is beautiful, celebrating the unmistakable energy of downtown Manhattan. "Infiltrate" reaches out to the reader in ways that many books do not--most of the interviews are continued on the book's website where you can leave comments, ask questions and engage interactively with the "Infiltrate" community.
