Disappointing 30 July 2010
By Allison Johnston - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was horribly disappointed by this book. I bought it in 2010, well-aware that it was published in 2006 and therefore, had the potential to feel slightly outdated. But I suppose my faith in Adrian Shaughnessy (who is highly respected in the design community), convinced me I should give the book the benefit of the doubt. Here's my advice to you: don't. The design examples are all one-note and stale, the writing good (though non-persuasive), and the photography lackluster. I wish I could say I found the paragraphs on the background of each project to be interesting, but I didn't. I was left feeling as though I just sat through a 2 hour-long design critique where all the designers talked about wanting to "convey this" and "evoke that", but their designs did little to inspire.

If you're a fan of minimalism, post-modernism and swiss design, you'll no doubt find a few examples in here that are desirable, but not enough to justify purchasing the book. And if you're not -- well, you'll probably just be miserable.

Simplemente un libro 26 July 2007
By Jose Solano - Published on
Format: Paperback
Yo creo que este libro no es más que una muestra simple de trabajos realizados por reconocidos artistas, pero no profundiza en nada y aún si no lo hiciera, debería incluir más material gráfico o más muestras, osea, un libro para ver en una cita odontológica, creo que debería llamarse, look at this 30 designs....
