Page Design: New Layout and Editorial Design (Promopress)Gebundene Ausgabe
New Layout and Editorial Design
In today's highly digital environment, the pleasure of the touch, smell and weight of paper as we hold it in our hands is taking on new value. In the graphic design sector, technology is taking giant steps forward, providing designers with increasingly sophisticated tools for producing high-impact designs. In this context, print publications are becoming exclusive objects, and this means that they need designs, textures and finishes that make them especially desirable. In the future, the publications that stand the test of time will be those which we wish to preserve because they feature the beauty of handmade objects. Page Design pays tribute to the tradition of print editorial design by focusing on its outstanding contemporary value. This volume offers a panorama of contemporary trends and styles through a selection of one hundred projects of different sizes, from flyers and magazines to posters, catalogues and books. The projects featured are defined by their composition, colours, typography and size, and each is a statement of aesthetic and conceptual principles that takes on a special power going beyond the purely visual when placed in readers' hands. Containing case studies and tips and tricks, this book is full of ideas on page layout, interaction between sections and the optimum way to convey a message. It is a perfect reference work for designers that will rekindle readers' love of books as objects with an enduring value.
