Book Description :

In an age of globalization and connectivity, the idea of "mainstream culture" has become quaint. Websites, magazines, books, and television have all honed in on ever-diversifying subcultures, hoping to carve out niche audiences that grow savvier and more narrowly sliced by the day. Consequently,the discipline of graphic design has undergone a sea change. Where visual communication was once informed by a designer's creative intuition, the proliferation of specialized audiences now calls for more research-based design processes. Designers who ignore research run the risk of becoming mere tools for communication rather than bold voices. Design Studies, a collection of 27 essays from an international cast of top design researchers, sets out to mend this schism between research and practice. The texts presented here make a strong argument for performing rigorous experimentation and analysis. Each author outlines methods in which research has aided their designwhether by investigating how senior citizensreact to design aesthetics, how hip hop culture can influence design, or how design for Third World nations is affected by cultural differences. Contributors also outline inspired ways in which design educators can teach research methods to their students. Finally, Design Studies is rounded out by five annotated bibliographies to further aid designers in their research. This comprehensive reader is the definitive reference for this new direction in graphic design, and an essential resource for both students and practitioners.

Book Description :

"In the 21st century, graphic designers throughout the world are facing tough but exciting challenges: new technologies, new ways for clients to interact with customers, and an audience that is increasingly literate when it comes to design, global influences, and cultures. This book starts by exploring the issues that shape design today : sustainability, ethics, technology, theory, and developments in other fields that impact globally on local cultures. [This book] breaks the discipline down into its elements. The book examines traditional practices such as typography, signage, advertising, and book design, as well as more recent developments including VJing, games design, software design, and interactive design. There is no single ideal for how a designer should be: a designer can practice along or be part of a large group ; a designer can also write, edit, curate, take photographs, design typefaces, and be an entrepreneur. This book concludes with a showcase of the work of cutting-edge designers from many parts of the world."--P. [4] of cover.
