And the photographs are excellent without exception! I know this, because I selected them from thousands of submissions from renowned designers such as Marian Bantjes, Ed Fella, Bryony Gomez-Palacio, Jeri Heiden, Jessica Helfand, Julia Hoffmann, Paul Sahre, and Jakob Trollbäck—and then put them into what I think is an interesting—hell, possibly even an evocative sequence for you. Order your copy now. You won’t be sorry you did.
Here’s the official text: As visual creatives, graphic designers are well informed about photography. They often carry around a camera, but rarely share the same concerns as professional photographers. As a result, the photographs they produce are distinctly unconventional and often appear in their design work—in fact, a glance at a designer’s personal photography will offer vital clues into their working methods and obsessions. Selected from the personal portfolios of the world’s most innovative and creative graphic designers, “The Graphic Eye” includes every type of photographic image, from macro details and funny moments, to found type, street scenes, rare objects, and monumental vistas. The book also includes personal portraits, quirky fashions, and organic and manmade colos, textures, and environments. This book is a unique and inspirational reference library of innovative imagery.
Beat that with a stick.
