  • Fresh Dialogue 8: Designing Audiences / New Voices in Graphic Design

    Karton Kapak
    Each year the New York chapter of AIGA brings together emerging designers for Fresh Dialogue, a panel discussion thatprovides a forum to present and talk about work, thoughts, and ideas. Designing Audiences takes a fresh look at graphic design through the eyes of three young designers, all of whom have embraced a media landscape dominated by user-centric social networking sites such as MySpace, Flickr, and YouTube. Playing with the notion of designer as visual interlocutor, they craft conversations where viewers become participants and the relationship between design and its consumers is radically redefined.This lively Fresh Dialogue volume includes designers from a variety of media: Stefan Bucher with his wildly popular DailyMonster series; Eric Rodenbeck with the Flickr mapping brainchild Mappr as well as live data visualizations at Digg Labs; and Katie Salen with Karaoke Ice, the traveling karaoke ice cream truck. Designing Audiences is a stimulating andentertaining discussion of the changing role of the designer in the era of constant feedback. The moderator is popular onlinepersonality Ze Frank, creator of the web-based "the show with zefrank," stand-up comic, and soon-to-go-Hollywood charmer.

  • Exploring Materials: Creative Design for Everyday Objects

    Karton Kapak
    Materials are like words. The richer your design vocabulary, the more distinctive the design solutions you can express. Sketching ideas with a pencil or rendering them with computer software are useful experiences, but there is no substitute for confronting physical forms and materials directly. Exploring Materials is an action-oriented, accessible guide to design thinking that addresses both the "how" and "why" of product design. In place of the abstraction of pure forms or the whimsy of virtual objects, it encourages designers to make and test real objects in a studio environment. Best-selling author Ellen Lupton (Thinking with Type) and her colleague Inna Alesina examine materials from several points of view, including traditional uses, experimental uses, techniques and directions for prototyping with everyday objects, and environmental implications. Student exercises and inspiring examples from the world of contemporary product design show readers how to use materials as tools for thinking and making.The book opens with two extensive studies: one for a place for sitting and one for a method for carrying. By considering what is needed instead of what specific product can be made, designers examine the methodology of designing. The core of the book is a visual glossary of thirty-two materialsfrom corrugated cardboard to molded felt to plastic film. It highlights the materials' behaviors and propertieswhich suggest different types of structure, surface, and connectionand it shows experimental uses of these materials, demonstrating how designers from around the world have exploited their characteristics in inventive ways. The book concludes with a section on making it real, moving beyond the prototype to create a product that can be manufactured and marketed. Exploring Materials contains everything designers need not only to jump-start their design process, but also to follow a project through from idea to prototype to finished object.

  • Scottish Vernacular Furniture

    Sert Kapak
    This book represents thirty years of research into the vernacular furniture traditions of Scotland from the end of the 17th century on into the 20th century. As in the rest of Britain and Europe, such furniture formed part of the distinctive culture of a place, in a similar way to local architecture, dialects and customs. If not often high art, the pieces in this book prove that limited resources and functional requirements need not exclude beauty and charm. The authors made it a priority to see pieces in their contexts, to meet the people who used them, and to understand how they were made. The story of their quest, which took them as far afield as New Zealand, is itself an adventure, and the objects they photographed represent the life and death of a community, the vital relics of a vanished culture.

  • Silk

    This gorgeously illustrated volume not only offers a tour through the fascinating history of silk but also a glimpse into the future, when imaginative designers and textile producers will be changing the boundaries of what is possible with this extraordinary material. Textile expert Mary Schoeser presents an authoritative account of the development of silk, its properties and practical uses, and its role in some of the greatest achievements in the history of fashion design.Silk is magical. Made by worms, it is able to absorb up to thirty times its weight in water, it is warmer than wool, and it is unsurpassed for beauty and touch. Schoeser focuses keen attention on silk’s evolution as a symbol of status and substance, then traces its central function in 19th- and 20th-century glamour, expressed through the work of designers from Christian Dior to Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga to Emmanuel Ungaro. Schoeser also examines the innovative use of silk by today’s cutting-edge designers, among them Alexander McQueen, Issey Miyake, and John Galliano of Dior. She concludes with a detailed investigation of new silk technologies and how they continue to extend both the physical properties of silk and the possibilities for creative design.
