Paperback      ISBN: 0500202613
Designing has come of age since World War II. The essential shape, form and structure of some objects in our daily lives may have been fixed many generations ago, but design and designers have now been moved center stage by the varied demands of a society that in less than half a century has gone from the restless search for the new throw-away consumerism to a postmodernist recycling of ideas - and now, Green recycling of materials. Companies use design systematically to plan their manufacturing, shape their marketing and make their products more attractive, while many designers have sought to raise the status of their activity to that of an art form and even - like Ettore Sottsass - to see it as "a way of discussing life". Dormer questions orthodoxies, defines the contexts within which designers work, and aims to cover the wide range of post-war activity, including industrial and product design, graphics, furniture, textiles, kitchen utensils and tableware. His previous books include The New Ceramics, The New Furniture and The Meanings of Modern Design.

Innovation in CD Packaging Design
Paperback      ISBN: 2888930137
Now in Paperback! The best-selling CD-Art captures the finest CD cover and packaging design from around the world, and provides an international showcase of innovative work. This timely updated version of the original hardcover book looks at developments in the music industry today, and includes new work produced for the growing download and interactive market. The book looks at the ways in which designers excite the senses of sight and touch to create a fuller experience of a product more commonly associated with sound. Through a wealth of case studies, it shows how designers exploit the two- and three-dimensional qualities of CD packaging to create unique, collectable items. It explores not only the traditional elements of design-image, illustration, typography, and packaging-but also innovative materials. Case studies look at how artwork is selected, created, and applied to CD packages; how designers make the most of the standard dimensions for CD packages; and at the use of special formats, unusual materials, slipcases, etc.

Ron Arad
Ron Arad
Hardcover      ISBN: 0714843105
This book gives readers an insight into the work of one of the world's most successful contemporary designers, Ron Arad. In a long conversation with art critic Matthew Collings, Arad talks about how his career has unfolded and the elements it now encompasses: product and furniture design, architecture, public sculpture and exhibitions. As well as revealing both the thinking and stories behind many of Arad's designs and projects, this discussion also touches on whether art and design can really mix, the nature of the client-designer relationship, how workshop projects feed designs for mass-production, the fun of working both with simple materials and cutting-edge technology, what makes good architecture, and refusing to decide whether you're a designer or an architect. Illustrated with over 350 images of his work (including specially commissioned pictures by Tom Vack) Ron Arad talks with Matthew Collings is the most complete overview of Arad's career to date.
