Packaging is an indispensable part of life. It’s a silent means of one-way communication derived from the instinct to impress and catch attention. In a world where consumers are drowned in choices, high-impact packaging is simply capable of elevating the status of ordinary products, so as to project a long-lasting identity – allowing no more than a few seconds for end users to spot the product from the crowded shelf.
Simply Packaging, the third and final volume of the SimplySeries™ series, captures the ever-evolving art of packaging design and its reflection of the times. Examining the subject in 3 main sections, namely Brand Seduction (branding & identity), Lifestyle Stimuli (lifestyle products) and Gobbling Desires (for food & beverages), the title celebrates the hottest packaging designs from around the world!
A visual lexicon of two-dimensional grids and patterns indexed systematically - included CD with vector data. Grid Index is the first comprehensive visual lexicon of patterns and grid systems. Based upon years of research, artist and musician Carsten Nicolai has discovered and unlocked the visual code for visual systems into a systematic equation of grids and patterns. The accompanying CD contains all of the grids and patterns featured in the publication from the simplest grids made up entirely of squares to the most complex irregular ones with infinitely unpredictable patterns of growth, as editable vector graphic data files. Use it to map out the underlying grids of any image or form and to create recurring geometrical grids in graphic design - an essential reference for designers, visual artists, architects, researchers and mathematicians.
