Item description for Neubau Modul by Stefan Gandl...
Neubau Modul gives graphic designers, architects and creatives from the fashion and textile industries a wide variety of patterns to use in their daily work. Previously, when designers needed patterned surfaces for their graphics, backgrounds, textures, wallpapers or moving images, they had to create them by hand in a time-consuming process. Now, with Neubau Modul, designers have a practical tool that gives them access to over 2,000 easy-to-edit and infinitely repeatable patterns that the Neubau Team, headed by Stefan Gandl and Christoph Grnberger, have developed during the past three years. As with Neubau Welt, all of the work shown in Neubau Modul can also be found as Adobe Illustrator and bitmap files on an included DVD that can be used on any platform. The DVD also contains the entire digital collection of patterns as a practical Swatch Library, enabling designers to immediately implement them in any project in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. The Swatch Library makes it especially easy for designers to combine and edit the examples and to create new, completely scalable patterns within seconds. As an added bonus, the DVD contains a headline font designed by Neubau. Neubau Modul also provides the user with an analogue instrument for making the best selection of patterns as efficiently as possible the Modulmeter. By placing and moving the included Modulmeter throughout the book, one can make and test new combinations of patterns directly on the page. Neubau Modul is a useful handbook that will make the everyday work of the designer easier. It is helpful in creating applications for a wide variety of disciplines that include illustration and architecture as well as web, communication, motion and textile design.

excellent resource Apr 21, 2008
it seemed like NeuBauWelt gave designers of every level everything they could ever need..... wrong! this new compendium adds an amazing new collection of easily utilized and varied patterns and shapes. at the price it is a true gift for any designer needing easily accessible and inspirational material for any project. great!
More than just a book !!! Apr 21, 2008
Neubau does it again with another compendium of essential and inspirational reference material that no modern designer should do without.
Working alongside NeubauWelt / NeubauModul provides the individual with an armory of endless graphic possibility.
This is the book connoisseurs of high-end custom typography and exceptionally rendered design will keep under their mattress.
I love it!
Pattern-tastic design nerdery Apr 9, 2008
Picked up this book partly based on the sheer mathematical density of patterns and shapes. This is not a coffee table book or eye candy session, just pure data. With a short 'how-I-made-this' section and some application examples, Ghandi provides an endless amount of vector patterns for you to study and use. This feels like a modern day Letraset catalog made for robots. Neubauwelt, their first book, is way more accessible for the average user then this book, but with that said if you know what your doing, this is a goldmine. On the down side, it's a hefty book which will absorb some shelf space and may not be as useful as say, a dictionary. If you like the tech aesthetic, this book is for you. All crafty types move along.
I was expecting much more Mar 28, 2008
I bought this book cause I had the other nebul series, Nebul Welt, and I love it. I'm very disapointed with this one. The patterns are very basics. Only has kinds of waves, lines and circles.
