Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Charlotte & Peter Fiell are leading authorities on twentieth and twenty-first century design, and have written over 40 bestselling books on the subject. Charlotte studied at the British Institute in Florence and at Camberwell College of Arts, London, where she studied the History of Drawing and Printmaking with Material Science. She later trained at Sotheby's Educational Studies, also in London. Peter also trained at Sotheby's and received an MA in Design Studies from Central Saint Martin's, London. Steven Heller is an American art director, journalist, critic, author, and editor who specializes in topics related to graphic design. He is co-chair of the MFA Designer as Author programme at the School of Visual Arts, New York, and is author of and contributor to over 50 books on design, including Citizen Designer: perspectives on design responsibility (Allworth Press, 2003), 100 ideas that changed Graphic Design (LKP, 2012), and Graphic: inside the sketchbooks of the world's great graphic designers (The Monacelli Press, 2010).

My favourites in the book include Irma Boom's remarkable publications, Loise Fili and her beautiful typographic covers, Hilary Greenbaum's work for the New York Times magazine 'Who made that' feature, Aron Jancso with some clever typographic designs he produced for himself and Oliver Munday who created an alphabet out of those cheap miniature plastic soldiers kids play with. There are two other alphabets that caught my eye, one using fashion photography of body parts from Yvette Yang and another from Zim & Zou using woven orange, blue and white thread. Oddly there are hardly any logos in the book.
The hundred designers featured (and this includes design groups) each get between three and six pages, the first one includes their design philosophy (predictably they're rather repetitive) training, location and website. All the images in these mini portfolios are reproduced large enough to get a feel of each project and they all have captions though I think it would have been helpful to have included the dimensions and maybe a reference to paper and printing process. The book is printed on a good matt art with a 175 screen.
The Fiell's have edited a worthwhile overview of contemporary graphic design which should interest anyone who works in this area of creativity.
Constantly throughout my degree I'm asked to find reference or inspiration from contemporary design practice, and every time this book yields something awesome to use.
To some extent it's possible to just look online to try and find inspiring design work, BUT the picture you get is always way more piecemeal and patchy. With this book, you get a total and detailed survey of design culture as it actually is.
Work is displayed beautifully alongside words from the designers themselves, through which are shown insights and visual ideas that you'd never think of yourself, or find by clicking around on blogs.
It's these deeper themes which put New Graphic Design beyond the level of simple anthology or catalogue of stuff designers have done. It becomes more of a road map for Graphic Design culture in the modern age.
Also, it looks really lovely on the shelf, which is always a plus.
If you want to be on top of graphic design at the moment, you pretty much have to buy this.
