ABOUT THE BOOK
Geo/Graphics is a focused study on geometric designs in today’s creative current. Looking at design projects worldwide that take circles and polygons as the core graphic medium to channel meanings, the book presents how versatile shapes facilitate communication and fortify memories in diverse context and fields of design.
In two sections, starting with daily life graphics, To The Touch comprehends a world underlaid by visible and invisible geometry. Sifting through more than 130 print works, products and site specific installations, this segment exhibits how simple shapes help to bind and build with its modularity and, together with colours, connote complex brand visions, visualise memories and pattern the real world. Following the mute and still, On The Move puts 28 multimedia projects on show wherein international creatives from various disciplines draw on geometric graphics to model characters, tell a story and portray music content in motion pictures for television broadcast, concerts and visual presentations.
“So if you’re a fan of studios like Hey, Patternity, Build, Dumbar, wilfredtimo, Fons Hickmann m23 and like a bit of polygonal design then this is definitely one for your festive wishlist. Just look at that cover!”
