Wherever you shop, be it online or in a brick-and-mortar store, the first thing you notice about a product is its packaging. The quality of the packaging has a significant influence on whether or not a customer decides to buy a product. In fact, packaging has become more important than ever in recent years: Unboxing videos are watched by millions of followers on social media platforms, college Packaging Design courses are full to bursting, more and more agencies are specializing in this area, and companies are investing ever greater sums of money in the outward appearance of their products. Packaging design has long since grown to become not just part of our everyday lives, but a powerful marketing tool as well. High-quality packaging can increase the value of an entire brand. With over 500 projects from more than 45 different countries, the sixth edition of TASCHEN's The Package Design Book celebrates the 14th anniversary of the Pentawards, one of the industry's most important international competitions. We will be casting our spotlight on all the winners from 2019 and 2020. With awards in six major categories - Beverages, Food, Body, Luxury, Other Markets, and Packaging Concepts - this spectacular and inspiring collection presents an array of unusual, intelligent and charming packaging concepts, demonstrating once again the importance of this design discipline.

This collection of over 140 curated posters by the revolutionary graphic artist Seymour Chwast provides context and insight into not only his five-decade career, but the poster genre itself. Since founding Push Pin Studios alongside Milton Glaser and Edward Sorel in the 1950s, Chwasts posters have been widely celebrated for their combination of subversive style and strong political satire. His caustic humor, graphic hand, and visual commentary cleverly synthesize in a way that is both wry and immediately understandable. Posters are arranged by typeCauses, Commerce, Information, Exhibits, and Lecturesrather than chronology, which, along with the large format, invites readers to engage thematically with the designs. Commentary on each poster makes this a valuable resource for students, educators, historians, and all who appreciate the unique ability of posters to subvert notions of popular culture, politics, and design at once. Essays by Shepard Fairey and Steven Heller contextualize Chwast's impact on 20th-century design.

The Book of Symbols Reflections on Archetypal Images

The Book of Symbols combines original and incisive essays about particular symbols with representative images from all parts of the world and all eras of history. The highly readable texts and over 800 beautiful full-color images come together in a unique way to convey hidden dimensions of meaning. Each of the ca. 350 essays examines a given symbol's psychic background, and how it evokes psychic processes and dynamics. Etymological roots, the play of opposites, paradox and shadow, the ways in which diverse cultures have engaged a symbolic image-all these factors are taken into consideration. Authored by writers from the fields of psychology, religion, art, literature, and comparative myth, the essays flow into each other in ways that mirror the psyche's unexpected convergences. There are no pat definitions of the kind that tend to collapse a symbol; a still vital symbol remains partially unknown, compels our attention and unfolds in new meanings and manifestations over time. Rather than merely categorize, The Book of Symbols illuminates how to move from the visual experience of a symbolic image in art, religion, life, or dreams to directly experiencing its personal and psychological resonance.The Book of Symbols sets new standards for thoughtful exploration of symbols and their meanings, and will appeal to a wide range of readers: artists, designers, dreamers and dream interpreters, psychotherapists, self-helpers, gamers, comic book readers, religious and spiritual searchers, writers, students, and anyone curious about the power of archetypal images.

At some point in the life of a company comes a time when its logo needs to be redesigned. The reasons can vary: the logo may already be or look outdated, or it may be necessary to adapt it to a digital environment that did not exist when it was created, or perhaps another element must be incorporated, or the company is diversifying and the logo must reflect that change. When that time comes, it is important to take into account several factors so as not to lose the essence of the brand, ensuring the public continues to recognize it. This book presents some of the best examples of logo redesigns and provides valuable information on how designers have arrived at their particular solution

Intended for graphic designers, design students, fashion and interior design lovers, and all those interested in exciting and unexpected colour combinations that work.

This book is a visual guide that collects 400 downloadable copyright-free images of a social and political nature that can be used on T-shirts, posters, fanzines, stationery, and many other mediums.

In the age of big data and digital distribution, when news travel ever further and faster and media outlets compete for a fleeting slice of online attention, information graphics have swept center stage. At once nuanced and neat, they distill abstract ideas, complex statistics, and cutting-edge discoveries into succinct, compelling, and masterful designs. Cartographers, programmers, statisticians, designers, scientists, and journalists have developed a new field of expertise in visualizing knowledge. This XL-sized compendium explores the history of data graphics from the Middle Ages right through to the digital era. Curated by Sandra Rendgen, some 400 milestones span astronomy, cartography, zoology, technology, and beyond. Across medieval manuscripts and parchment rolls, elaborate maps, splendid popular atlasses, and early computer-based information design, we systematically break down each work's historical context, including such highlights as Martin Waldseemuller's famous world map, the meticulous nature studies of Ernst Haeckel, and many unknown treasures. Hot on the heels of the best-selling Information Graphics and Understanding the World, this third volume fills the gap as an unprecedented reference book for data freaks, designers, historians, and anyone thirsty for knowledge. An enthralling exploration into the teachings, research, and lives of generations past.
