All Access: The Making of Thirty Extraordinary Graphic Designers
"The first fifteen are famous designers. The book juxtaposes a selection of greatest hits with their 'pre-fame' work. Author Stefan G. Bucher reveals their visual history - the first pieces that put them on the map, their transitional work, and the eventual breakthrough designs that caused their names to be known around the world. These visual timelines are complemented by insightful text that draws on in-depth conversations from mentors, education, and eureka moments to dealing with the realitites of life as a designer. Bucher also profiles fifteen of the most exciting graphic designers and design teams from around the globe that have yet to receive the wide exposure of the famous fiteen. As with the masters, Bucher explores their roads to early success and highlights the latest work that is lifting these designers into the spotlight. These extraordinary designers did not spring forth fully formed. Looking at the early days of their careers, you will see that they started out just like the rest of us, paying their dues, working hard, and honing their craft. Discover the decision they made along the way and find out about the insights that set them apart. There is hope for all of us." - back cover.
