´´How do you start a design project? How can you generate ideas and concepts in response to a design brief? How do other designers do it? This book will answer all these questions and more. Now in its second edition, the highly popular Design Thinking forVisual Communication identifies methods and thought processes used by designers in order to start the process that eventually leads to a finished piece of work. Step-by-step guidance for each part of the process is highlighted by real-life case studies, enabling the student to see teaching in practice. This focus on ideas and methods eschews an abstract, academic approach in favour of a useable approach to design as a problem-solving activity.The new edition now includes contributions from a broader international range of design practices and adds depth to existing case studies by looking in greater detail at some of the processes used´´--
´´Visual Design in Action´´ ist eine Momentaufnahme aus Sutnars ´Amerikanischer Periode´ (1936-1976) und umfasst Grafik für Carr´s Department Store, Werbung für die Vera Neumann Company, den visuellen Auftritt von Addo-X und andere, erstaunlich zeitgemässe Designs. Sutnars bekannteste Arbeit ist das Redesign des gesamten Sweets Catalogue Service als dessen Artdirector. Weniger bekannt ist er für die Einführung der Klammer als typografische Lösung, um die Vorwahl vom Rest einer Telefonnummer zu unterscheiden. ´´Visual Design in Action´´ ist ein Zeugnis für die historische Relevanz des Modernismus und ein philosophischer Nachhall auf Sutnars Fokus auf die funktionelle Schönheit der totalen Klarheit. Dieser Reprint von Visual Design in Action (erstmals 1961 in limitierter Auflage erschienen) ist in Hinblick auf den Einfluss des Designs und des ´Designdenkens´ genauso relevant und treffend, wie es die Originalpublikation von 1961 war.
