Book Description

30 April 2009
A minimalist design vocabulary is currently being reinvented by a troop of young graphic designers who are rediscovering the stylistic elements reminiscent of classic graphic design such as silkscreen printing, classical typography, hand lettering, woodcutting and folk art and integrating them into their work. Naïve documents this extraordinary renaissance of Classic Modernism, from the 1940s to 1960s, in contemporary graphic design. Inspired by 20th Century American legends such as Saul Bass, the undisputed master of film title design and iconic logos as well as modernist graphic artist Charley Harper and textile designer Alexander Girard, these burgeoning designers are creating new and striking imagery using palettes of earthy and pastel shades, reduced strokes, patterns and shapes with a strong folkloristic element. Naïve illustrates this new development in graphic design, assembling a multitude of vivid and inspiring examples ranging from illustrations, poster art, editorials, book covers and record sleeves to stationary and textiles.

Brought this book for my daughter - she is studying illustration and graphics. Her words were "This is the best book ever published!". I can say no more to do it justice and recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and captivating 7 Jun 2011
By carla
Format:Paperback
I love this book and honestly words can't do it enough justice! There's a round up of so many talented artists, illustrators and designers amongst it's pages and I love leafing through it for inspiration on colour, styles and technique. I don't buy a huge amount of graphics books anymore, but if you like your hand crafted aesthetic and original styles, this book is a must have!!!

Format:Paperback
I bought this book for my grandson's 27th birthday. He is an architecture graduate and a graphic artist and had actually requested this book as a present. He says it is superb but one would have to ask him just why!
