How else do you explain the restless clients, big and small, who quickly came running? Or the hundreds of amazingly talented people who flocked here to be part of this crazy experiment on the prairie?From the world's largest bank to the Episcopal Church; from The Wall Street Journal to Rolling Stone, from Hush Puppies to United Airlines.Celebrating 25 years of creativity that has helped drive results and ultimately outsmart the competition.

A Century of Thai Graphic Design
Hardcover ISBN: 9748225429
Featuring over 5,500 items ranging from the mid-19th century to the 1960s, A Century of Thai Graphic Design examines the changes in everyday Thai life and culture by studying its printed material. The first printing machines were introduced into Thailand by missionaries in the 17th century, but printing in general did not really take off until the 1830s, during the reign of King Rama III. Since that time, Thailand has developed a rich library of graphic images using an alphabet unique to the language. A Century of Thai Graphic Design examines the many facets of Thai graphics, from early newspapers and funeral books, to political propaganda, film posters, children's cartoon books, labels and advertisements for household products. With the help of the foremost collectors in each particular field, Anake Nawigamune has assembled a collection of words and imagery which provides a visual history that will fascinate designers, historians and all those interested in Thai culture and society.
