Description

Neville Brody has been described as 'the most influential designer of the Eighties'. His innovations in graphic design have revolutionized the look of magazines, advertisements and packaging. Whether record sleeve or supermarket package, the products paraded for our admiration and consumption as often as not borrow ideas that were originated on a Brody sketch-pad.While the voracious media boom of the Eighties led others to adapt ideas from Brody's original design, few of his imitators have achieved the same resonance. Brody's work follows his belief in design to reveal, not to conceal. As such, his work is often experimental; part of a tradition that has its roots in the art movements of the early twentieth-century, in particular Dadaism and Constructivism.The Graphic Language of Neville Brody collects together much of his output during the Eighties, including his ground-breaking design and typography for the international style journal, The Face. The accompanying text features many direct quotes and observations on design theory and practice. With over 450 illustrations, this book provides a wide-ranging introduction to a crucial period in graphic design. It gives a first-hand account that will appeal to all those interested in the techniques of visual communication in an increasingly visual age.
