With increased globalization comes increased sharing of ideas — a cultural exchange than can lead to new and diverse possibilities. This hybridization has long been at work not only on the foods we eat and the music we listen to, but the very words we speak. Type Hybrid examines its impact on the written aspects of our languages. Appealing to an audience that speaks more than one language, multilingual designers are able to broaden their reach and that of their clients at the same time as expanding the arsenal of characters at their disposal. Divided into two chapters and showcasing logos and visual communication, this book is revolutionary in its exposŽ of a growing trend in typography, one that is demonstrably here to stay.

Designers often look to earlier decades or generations for inspiration, borrowing motifs and palettes that are recognizable through their ability to elicit nostalgia. From the ever-popular 50s and 60s to the growing interest in the early years of the 20th century, this rejuvenated aesthetic can influence everything from fashion and hair (or beard styles) to housewares and furniture. New Retro focuses specifically on graphic designers that evoke bygone eras with their creative work. The first section showcases logo design and examines the ways in which designers are able to incorporate vintage typefaces and imagery to create new and innovative brand identities and logotypes. The second section presents highly skillful graphic output, from poster and print design to fashion, product, packaging design and more, that nods back while leaning forward.

Our days are numbered... so are our currencies, streets and the pages of our books. Numbers are used to mark the passage of time, denote value and record location. There is very little they are not involved in, but perhaps it is time for a makeover– a re-envisioning not of what they express, but how they are expressed. Bold, simple and always iconic, they provide the perfect forms for experimentation. A designers dream canvas, the possible variations of color, form and pattern are endless. From the minimally embellished to the highly stylized, Graphic Digits showcases original designs that breathe life into numbers. Includes calendar, packaging and promotion design, fashion, signage and brand identities.

The packaging of food and its implements has takes many forms throughout the ages — from the sanitary to the recognizable, the utilitarian to the avant-garde. While an absolute necessity for human life, the aesthetic and cultural requirements of food have often been overlooked.



New trends and materials have led to a unique opportunity for the packagers of today — to enhance and elevate one’s culinary experience by speaking to our minds as well as our stomachs.



Often reflective of a company’s core values and seldom a happenstance, great packaging can merge many considerations of lifestyle — from the artistic to the sustainable — into one cohesive statement or identity. Some provide interactive escapes, others a call to presence, as investigating the vessel itself becomes an act of ceremony.



Explore the latest trends through numerous up to the minute case studies, each distinct with regards to product, materials, branding requirements and consumer experience.
