Genre: Calligraphy

Wenn Buchstabenkombinationen im Kopf der Kunden zu gespeicherten Bildern werden, entfalten sie die vom Branding gewünschte Wirkung. Sie werden nicht weiter gelesen, sondern wieder erkannt. Ein Typologo ist die ideale Kombination aus verbalem und visuellem Bestandteil, aus Kreativität und handwerklicher Feinstarbeit. Dazu muss man wissen, wie Schrift wirkt. Deshalb beginnt Michael Evamy seine 350-seitige "Tour de Typologo" folgerichtig mit einem Feuerwerk straff kommentierter Meisterstücke, die zeigen: "it's all in the font", bevor er anhand unzähliger Beispiele die Vor- und Nachteile von Verzierung und Reduktion, von Schrägen, Schichtungen und Spiegelungen, Spielereien, Sonderzeichen, Ziffern, Flächen und Rahmen erläutert. Damit bietet 'TypoLogo' Anregung und Argumente und ein hochkarätiges Umfeld, in dem Sie die Durchsetzungskraft Ihrer Entwürfe aufs Beste testen können.

Identify Yourself

Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

From the clothes we wear to the cars we drive, we design our lives every minute of every day. Doing this consciously lets us create the life we desire. Successful brands know what they want, and they know how to get it. They design the future they want and create the process to reach it. At the heart of this process lies the logo. Without it, we would not recognise the brand, and we could not display our allegiance to it. The logo identifies and calls us to the brand dream. Our ancient ancestors used the same elements of colours and symbols to draw their visions on cave walls, and early languages were considered sacred. This time-proven tool has been honed by modern designers and is available to us all. A logo effectively holds the imprint of a business and conveniently straddles the world of our imagination and of our solid world of manifestation. Like visual ambassadors, logos deliver our dreams to the world so they might become reality. This book shows you how.
