Just one single element of a companys brand identity, a logo is rarely changed when established. For this reason good design must balance current trends with classic appeal all the while reflecting the values of the client for whom its expression becomes synonymous. Branding Element Logos illuminates the art of logo creation in the hands of skilled designers who rarely get it wrong. Through interviews with eight design studios from around the world, concept sketches and renderings, we are allowed a window into the creative process and the deliberation that goes into a successful logo. From fields as disparate as food and beverage, fashion, information technology and culture, our view is broadened to encompass the diversity of the marketplace and the possibilities of implementation.

A historical as well as design-oriented perusal of brand logos, Logo Style gives context to the rapidly growing field of logotype design. Chapters within are organized by style as well as the eras that influence them; decorative, which takes inspiration from vintage styles and trends, modern, drawing from the minimalism of the modernist movement, postmodern, with its namesake's irreverent slant, and digital, featuring designs heavily influenced by the pixelated, slick, and colorful trends that sprang out of the Information Age. All include a broad survey of individual logos, as well as case studies of designers and projects rendered in each of the distinctive styles. Logo Style demonstrates how timeless logos influenced by centuries of design history are applied over entire identities to create a unified brand image, while still standing uniquely on their own.

Collage is such a flexible artistic medium that no matter what skills you master and what materials you use, you will be able to create amazing collages. All the things we know in drawing or painting, such as perspective, color, and composition can be thrown away. The only limitation is your imagination. This book traces collage as a technique back the ancient China, as an artist pursuit to the 20th century when Cubists established its utmost position in modern art and Surrealists pushed it forward to depict the subconscious world, and as a way of teasing during the Pop Art movement. For beginners, this book also includes a whole section for collage creation and displays a large number of collage works.

If visuals could scream, wail or attack, what would they be like? Maybe you can find the answers in this book. Since a long time ago, there has always been some artists who resort to a fierce visual language to release their emotional powder kegs. These visuals are shocking, stinging, terrifying, or even depressing. Unsettling as they are, we believe that such visual fierceness offers unique aesthetic value and can inspire generations. In this book, we will look into this extreme visual language, and try to find out how our early predecessors as well as our contemporary visual artists created the most striking images.
