There are 320 pages in these book. In it contains pictures of graphic design done on different medium for special occasions.
19 out of these hundreds of designs are pulled out as case studies. Each
case study has a short write up explaining the event and the promotional material published. These promotional material includes tickets, brochures, t-shirts, posters, cards and many other stuff. The more eye catching ones are those that break out of the medium, like tying real shoe laces to a shoe on a brochure, paper cutouts and stuff like that.
The events themselves are also categorized. Here's the list:
- Art & Design
- Business
- Fund-raisers
- Community & Education
- Entertainment
- Private Parties
- Awards
- Sports & Automotive
It's a graphic design book from Rockport. There's really nothing much I can add. The quality of selection has always been consistently high.
There are more pictures on my blog. Just visit my library page for my blog's link.
