In this book, the author presents the perspectives of several authors and designers on how to achieve an emotional graphic design. Even though they are not absolute truths and there is no guarantee that if a designer follows those principles people will be emotional attached to the work, they will certainly bring them closer to that. Emotional design is a design that reflects on the crucial role emotions have in the human ability to understand the world, promising to enhance the quality of life of its audience. A successful emotion-driven design improves the relationship between the audience and the ‘product’, creating deep emotional bounds between the two. There are already many theories talking about emotional design in product design, industrial design, and even web design. But what about graphic design? This book aims to bring the graphic designer closer to delivering an emotion-driven design.

Beyond The West inspires a fresh understanding of global contemporary architecture beyond the Western Countries. Architects throughout the world work against a backdrop of rapidly growing cities, changing societies and climate, and emerging economies. But while Western architecture has largely dominated the discourse, architecture firms from non-Western countries have been establishing local and global -recognition for themselves, often finding strikingly different solutions to local requirements, including sustainability, transportation and migration, construction materials, and traditions. Beyond The West journeys across Asia, Africa, and the Americas to under-stand how local architects respond to a changing world, and focuses its wide lens on inspiring and truly global architecture.

A journey through dreamlike landscapes, bizarre buildings, and whimsical interiors floating between reality and fantasy. Oscar Wilde claimed that "progress is the realization of utopia." Dreamscapes illustrates utopian visions and invites the reader into otherworldly scenes that manifest visions of idealised worlds, offering a path toward a better future. The showcased pieces blur the lines between practical applications for architecture and design, abstract artistic expressions, and expand the possibilities of architecture, interior, and set design. The book presents the work of leading creatives from across the globe, exploring the infinite ways to visualize landscapes and the built environment. With their roots in spatial design, their ideas present a new creative current defined by the fusion of digital techniques such as computer rendering and 3D art, and an aesthetic that moves between fantasy and reality. WHAT TO EXPECT - The first illustrated book to present the work of the artists and creatives at the forefront of this aesthetic, which gained momentum as a social media phenomenon. - An insightful and pioneering look at the world of digital art, which will undoubtedly define the future of creativity. - An inspiring compilation that will serve as a reference for both artists and professionals in the fields of architecture and design.

Australia has wildly differing topographies and climates, and its best residential architecture draws on those site conditions in inventive ways. This book illustrates the strength of the country’s shift from British-influenced Georgian-style homes to more indigenous structures attuned to the land—a movement led by Australian architects such as Glenn Murcutt, Richard Leplastrier, and Gabriel Poole in the 1970s. Witness a range of new houses that grapple with the locales in which they are built. Up north, down south, and on the coast, from small and low-budget to multimillion-dollar dwellings, the focus is on the use of raw materials, energy efficiency, adaptable spaces, and embrace of the great outdoors for which the country is known. Drawings and interviews with the architects shed light on how they apply their intelligence and creativity to produce striking buildings that are uniquely Australian.
