ABOUT DESIGN ORIGIN
In an increasingly globalised world, some designs still stand out with unparalleled magnificence. This characteristic quality originates in an integrated approach that matches cultural understanding to modern problems. From the choice of materials to the perfect union of modern and traditional crafts, these solutions salute the creators’ origin and abode, projecting a refreshing standpoint that appeals curious eyes in a monotonous modern culture.
In the spirit of demonstrating the eccentric visual landscapes of different cultures, Design Origin examines the creative works of one country at a time. With 40 creative profiles in each edition, Design Origin: France and Design Origin: Germany explore the contemporary design that remarkably informs each country’s distinctive design ethos. Through short interviews and a carefully edited showcase, the book illustrates the unique vision and creative universe of established and emerging talents from different generations as they give insight into local design scene. Showcase include an astounding breadth of brand identities, communications, packaging, editorials, illustrations, photography and artistic set designs carefully produced for local and international clients working in the fields of music, fashion, sports, architecture and publishing.
