The process of creating graphic design cannot be easily defined: each designer has their own way of seeing the world and approaching their work. Graphic Design Process features a series of in-depth case studies exploring a range of both universal and unique design methods. Chapters investigate typical creative strategies – Research, Inspiration, Drawing, Narrative, Abstraction, Development and Collaboration – examining the work of 23 graphic designers from around the world.
Work featured includes projects by Philippe Apeloig, Michael Bierut, Ed Fella, James Goggin, Anette Lenz, Johnson Banks, Me Company, Graphic Thought Facility, Ahn Sang-Soo and Ralph Schraivogel.
This book is aimed at students and educators, as well as practising designers interested in the working methodologies of their peers.
