Packed full of beauty wisdom, Pretty Iconic takes us from the evocative smell of Johnson’s baby lotion through to Simple Face wipes, NARS Orgasm and beyond, looking at the formative role beauty plays in our lives.
Considering which much-hyped beauty buys are worth the buzz, and who they might be best suited for, in Pretty Iconic Sali Hughes uses her witty, inclusive and discerning style to look at some of the most significant products in beauty – from treasured classics such as Chanel No 5, to life-changers such as Babyliss Big Hair, and the more recent releases from Charlotte Tilbury, Sunday Riley and others that are shaping the beauty industry today.
Delving into the products that are simply the best at what they do, the inventions that changed our perception of beauty and the launches that completely broke the mould, Pretty Iconic is a treasure trove of knowledge from Britain’s most trusted beauty writer.
The first monograph, design manual, and manifesto by Michael Bierut, one of the world’s most renowned graphic designers—a career retrospective that showcases more than thirty-five of his most noteworthy projects for clients as the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Yale School of Architecture, the New York Times, Saks Fifth Avenue, and the New York Jets, and reflects eclectic enthusiasm and accessibility that has been the hallmark of his career.
Protégé of design legend Massimo Vignelli and partner in the New York office of the international design firm Pentagram, Michael Bierut has had one of the most varied and successful careers of any living graphic designer, serving a broad spectrum of clients as diverse as Saks Fifth Avenue, Harley-Davidson, the Atlantic Monthly, the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation, Billboard, Princeton University, the New York Jets, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the Morgan Library.
How to, Bierut’s first career retrospective, is a landmark work in the field. Featuring more than thirty-five of his projects, it reveals his philosophy of graphic design—how to use it to sell things, explain things, make things look better, make people laugh, make people cry, and (every once in a while) change the world. Specially chosen to illustrate the breadth and reach of graphic design today, each entry demonstrates Bierut’s eclectic approach. In his entertaining voice, the artist walks us through each from start to finish, mixing historic images, preliminary drawings (including full-size reproductions of the notebooks he has maintained for more than thirty-five years), working models and rejected alternatives, as well as the finished work. Throughout, he provides insights into the creative process, his working life, his relationship with clients, and the struggles that any design professional faces in bringing innovative ideas to the world.
Offering insight and inspiration for artists, designers, students, and anyone interested in how words, images, and ideas can be put together, How to provides insight to the design process of one of this century’s most renowned creative minds.
In der Trägerschaft des Vereins 100 Beste Plakate e.V. wird seit 2002 einmal im Jahr ein Wettbewerb ausgeschrieben, bei dem eine international besetzte (und jährlich wechselnde) Jury aus rund 2000 Einreichungen wegweisende Plakate aus dem Bereich Corporate Design, Werbung und Autorengrafik prämiert.
Teilnahmeberechtigt sind etablierte Institutionen, Grafik-Büros und Werbeagenturen aus Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz, aber auch Studierende aller deutschsprachigen Hochschulen und Design-Fakultäten. Mit dem Ziel, nicht nur Spitzenleistungen zu prämieren, sondern die Vielfalt eines Mediums abzubilden, das sich – ungeachtet der zunehmenden Digitalisierung von Informationen – als Aushang im öffentlichen Raum oder visualisierte Botschaft mit Nähe zur freien Kunst behauptet hat, ist der Verein längst zu einer unabhängigen Instanz geworden, die die kreative Leistung eines Genres fördert. Die ausgewählten Plakate werden im In- und Ausland in mehrwöchigen Ausstellungen gezeigt und in einem Jahrbuch publiziert. Auch mit dem Jahrgang 2018 hat der Verlag Kettler die Ehre, den Wettbewerb verlegerisch zu begleiten.
Das Erscheinungsbild zu 100 Beste Plakate 18 stammt von "Hi – Visuelle Gestaltung" aus Zürich.
Dear Client This Book Will Teach You How to Get What You Want from Creative People
In a world where every business, brand, product, and service needs a strong visual identity, it’s critical for clients and creative professionals to work together. And the key to success, as with any relationship, is communication. In Dear Client, award-winning graphic designer Bonnie Siegler offers an invaluable step-by-step guide to how to talk so creatives will listen, and how to listen when creatives talk.
Written as a series of honest, friendly lessons—“Know What You Like,” “Decide Who Will Decide,” “Focus Groups Suck,” “Don’t Say ‘Make It Yellow,’ Say ‘Make It Sunny,’” “Serve Lunch During Lunchtime Meetings”—it shows exactly how to deal with the subjectivity, emotional pitfalls, and occasional chaos of a creative partnership. Here’s how to articulate your visual goals and set a clear, consistent direction. How to give feedback that works and avoid words that inhibit creative thinking. How to be open to something you didn’t imagine. And most of all, how to have fun, save money, and get the results you want.
A world without plants is a world without life, both literally and figuratively. Besides forming the very basis of human survival on Earth, they are also an important source of creative inspiration, ingenuity, and expression. From scientific explorers like Sir Joseph Banks who travelled across the globe in search of never-seen-before species to impressionist painters like Édouard Manet who sought to capture the subtle beauty of everyday objects, many artists and illustrators have used flora as a powerful means to convey the essence of our very existence.
Botanical Inspiration is a timeless collection of artwork and illustrations that feature flora and its many facets through a variety of visual concepts, styles, and techniques. It speaks to lovers of both nature and creativity as a universal language in itself, thoughtfully interpreted by some of today’s most intriguing and interesting talents.
It was a certain character from The Simpsons who once said: “Homer no function beer well without.ˮ The same applies to their accompanying snacks.

From the smaller snack fare like moreish Malaysian ikan bilis and Japanese otsumami to more substantial drinking food like spicy buffalo wings and currywurst, Beer Snacks brings you the world’s best of what to eat, while you drink.
More of the international recipes in Beer Snacks include: Edamame (Japan), Boiled peanuts (USA), Chicharrón (Mexico), Pimientos de Padrón (Spain), Pickled onions (UK), Biltong (South Africa), Jalapeño poppers (USA), Masala peanuts (India), Salted egg French Fries (Thailand), Oysters Kilpatrick (Ireland), Buffalo wings (USA), Pretzels and beer cheese (Germany), Tsukune (Japan), Adobo Chicken Wings (The Phillippines) and (last, but most cheesily) Poutine (Canada).

In 2011 the American photographer Jeffrey Ladd moved to Cologne, Germany, and began photographing his surroundings while learning the basics of the German language. In the process, he collected lists of interesting German vocabulary words (professions, places, things, common terms, and the outdated), which he juxtaposes with his black-and-white photographs; two different types of language—one visual, one verbal—describing a sense of his new home. Borrowing the title from Mark Twain, The Awful German Language embraces a state where the combination of word and photograph can resonate or remain dissonant and confused depending on the individual reader. An index of definitions in English at the back of the book is provided as a learning tool, but one that requires some work on the part of the learner to decipher its code.
Jeffrey Ladd (b. 1968 in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania) is an american photographer. His work has been exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, Oklahoma City Museum of Art, International Center of Photography, a.o.

Offering a rare glimpse inside the Hermit Kingdom, Guardian journalist and photographer Oliver Wainwright takes us on an architectural journey behind closed doors in the world’s most secretive country. From the mosaic-lined lobbies of Soviet-era health centers to the candy-colored interiors of brand new theaters, his photographs shine a spotlight on the reclusive regime’s ambition to “turn the whole country into a socialist fairyland.”

Modernist aesthetics in architecture, art, and product design are familiar to many. In soaring glass structures or minimalist canvases, we recognize a time of vast technological advance which affirmed the power of human beings to reshape their environment and to break, radically, from the conventions or constraints of the past. Less well-known, but no less fascinating, is the distillation of modernism in graphic design.
This unprecedented TASCHEN publication, authored by Jens Müller, brings together approximately 6,000 trademarks, focused on the period 1940–1980, to examine how modernist attitudes and imperatives gave birth to corporate identity. Ranging from media outfits to retail giants, airlines to art galleries, the sweeping survey is organized into three design-orientated chapters: Geometric, Effect, and Typographic. Each chapter is then sub-divided into form and style led sections such as alphabet, overlay, dots and squares.
Alongside the comprehensive catalog, the book features an introduction from Jens Müller on the history of logos, and an essay by R. Roger Remington on modernism and graphic design. Eight designer profiles and eight instructive case studies are also included, with a detailed look at the life and work of such luminaries as Paul Rand, Yusaku Kamekura, and Anton Stankowski, and at such significant projects as Fiat, The Daiei Inc., and the Mexico Olympic Games of 1968. An unrivaled resource for graphic designers, advertisers, and branding specialists, Logo Modernism is equally fascinating to anyone interested in social, cultural, and corporate history, and in the sheer persuasive power of image and form.
Jens Müller was born in Koblenz, Germany, in 1982 and studied graphic design. Recipient of numerous national and international design awards, Müller is Creative Director of vista design studio in Düsseldorf, editor of the A5 book series on graphic design history, and author of Logo Modernism. He is a visiting lecturer at the Peter Behrens School of Arts in Düsseldorf and at the design department of the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
