    I didn't expect to learn much from this book I'd hoped it would give me some useful ideas for different graphic approaches to current projects It didn'tI'd thought it might give me a greater knowledge of the history of graphic design so that I would better know what emotions various pastiches evokeIt didn'tThis book provides a perfunctory gloss of each of its 100 ideas listing specific projects that specific individuals have made following that idea but not showing why that idea mattered historically or why I would want to use it now The language is condescendingly erudite as though a large vocabulary could compensate for a lack of thought

  2. Katelyn Jenkins says:

    A book about ideas that focuses on social revolution It gives a substantial analysis of the important art history context such as art nouveau art deco post modern and abstraction The book itself is its own graphically though out artform Beautiful examplesAlso noted it gives the designer who reads the text a background on why the world is designed it is today Why our brands are bigger than the product and how a fist can signal unrest

  3. Juha Saxberg says:

    Interesting reading for every graphic designer Lots of history examples and interesting anecdotes Some key pictures are missing Keith Haring’s work for example perhaps for copyright issues But this book servers well as a handbook when design inspiration and ideas are needed

  4. Carol says:

    Not as insightful as I'd hoped but it's a good book to pick up and peruse for ideas when you're feeling stuck

  5. Nathan says:

    The selection of the ideas is convincing and inspiring They could definitely be the idea source pond in any type of design

    An interesting brief overview

    Not only is this book a great conversational piece but it truly is an inspirational source for any designerThe bold red and black cover attracts attention and the book has a large format filled with examples of these ideas in full color The large size is great to flip through the pages and get lost in the fascinating world of text images and messages The ideas range from the iconic to designs used every day Below are a few examples of the ideas this book explores Idea 6 – Point Fingers explains the power of the We want you with an index finger pointing at the viewer image from posters Idea 28 – Calligrams shows how the visual low increases effectiveness of a message Idea 36 – Corporate Identity gives an explanation of how this branding began in 1907 by Peter Behrens and its evolution throughout generations Idea 43 – Riddles and Rebuses demonstrates the effectiveness of this idea including the I heart NY message Idea 56 – Vibrating Color describes that color changes how the person views reacts and interprets a design Idea 72 – White Space reflects much than a blank page and symbolizing a message in the pure simplicity of untouched area Overall I thought this book was a great way to generate ideas for projects and a way to compare what designs could work best It really is a primer that should be on any designer’s shelf

    100 big ideas in graphic design for example paper cutouts corporate identity and white space Each idea has a double page spread with imagery to illustrate the idea and a page of textA great reference book easy to pick up and browse or to read through from cover to cover The ideas are in chronological order roughly and you can see trends and ideas through the years The text describes the idea where and when it originated and some examples of it in use with big full colour full bleed images to help describe and explainThe ideas range from techniues such as white space and stencil type through to notions such as sexual taboo busting and nostalgia Some of the ideas are bigger and perhaps have had of an impact than others but all of the ideas mentioned and written about here are interesting and have some importance on the history and development of Graphic DesignI enjoyed this book I was able to pick it up and read through uite a few different ideas and then put it down again and there is no doubt I’ll use this in the future for reference and research

    Very good book not entirely what I was expecting but in a good way The commentary and examples are very much provided through a professional designer's eye bordering on erudite but ultimately still accessible to non professionals The selection of ideas is very eclectic and tends to clump in a couple of preferred 20th century movements but I was happy to surrender to the author's selections and be guided through the journey The graphic examples were both beautiful and thought provoking about the accompanying text A minor uibble is that the captions are in extremely small font bordering on illegible for my only middle aged eyes and challenging if reading in evening low light Other than that well worth the time and expenditure

    This is a very handy clearly laid out reference book that is also light enough to read through cover to cover It would be an excellent place to start research for a project as it also discusses main practitionersexamples of the ideas it's discussing It isn't very detailed though so it would only be a starting placeThe main problem I have with this book is that often it would talk about a piece of design or art work and then not picture it even though sometimes other pieces which aren't discussed in the text were pictured This made it difficult to see what the text was referring to if you weren't familiar with the pieces mentioned
