Illustration is applied imagination. But this book is not only about illustration, though it does contain illustrations-lots of them. But there's more. This book examines the profession of illustrator, from the vexing subject of money to the question of the right workplace. How do you get commissions? How do you negotiate successfully? What's a fair price? How do you handle the everyday routines involved in illustration work? And, of course, it presents a wide variety of illustra- tion techniques. In short, it makes an effort to enlighten, be useful and answer as many questions as possible. Its author does so, on the one hand, by offering more than twenty really useful tips for budding illustrators-for example, how to stop the fear that a blank page often inspires-and, on the other, by presenting the twenty-five most important illustration techniques in a practical way that awakens the reader's desire to learn more. As a parallel narrative accompanying the humorous texts, there are images by very different illustrators who work with a wide variety of techniques and styles. These pictures are diverse yet easy to compare, because they all show the same thing: a bird.

When we read, our brain is decoding a series of abstract symbols and synthesizing the results into complex ideas. Really, then, we see before we read. We recognize the character of a word before we ascertain its meaning. A tailor-made creative type takes advantage of this effect to visualize a specific brand, deliver its image and message and make it stand out among the crowd. To create an optimum type, a designer must understand the brand's philosophy, communicate with the client, feel with his empathy, and achieve a perfect solution with his professional skills. This publication features over a hundred custom types created by designers and agencies within diverse cultural contexts. Readers of this book will learn lessons from these creatives' work processes and be inspired to design types that satisfy their clients and wow their viewers.
