"Breaking designer's Block is a vast collection of some of the most varied work from the world's leading designers. This book is broken down into three core areas, color, which presents both a historical look at color palettes and collection of work that is driven by the designer's color choices, type, which also presents a historical look at various fonts as well as a collection of twelve top typographic designers, and materials, which presents a wide array of graphic design pieces that have incorporated imaginative materials to drive a message, such as fur-covered books and Christmas cards stitched on men's briefs. This exceptional collection clearly demonstrates the remarkable power that designers have to engender wonder, excitement, and a sense of ownership in today's consumers. An invaluable resource for fresh ideas, "Breaking Designer's Block will stimulate and inspire designers to open their minds--and their art--to create work that is memorable, thought provoking, and visually driven.
