Scanning the world for the best new graphic design talent, Michael Dorrian and Liz Farrelly have collated the work of 100 new designers, from So Paulo to Tokyo, Melbourne to Los Angeles, into a book that will both inspire and impress. The book focuses on practitioners still in the first decade of their career—either working alone or teamed up into small companies, showcasing projects, aesthetics, and methodologies that push boundaries and redefine working practices. As well as pinpointing the best new talent worldwide, this visually stunning survey provides a showcase of cutting-edge imagery for a student and professional audience.
Thanks to affordable technology and up-for-it, media-savvy clients, a huge number of designers set themselves up in their own studios, straight from college. The kind of work that results is often fast, furious, rule-breaking, and inspirational. These designers are also characterized by their love of their locale, along with nomadic tendencies and a "small is beautiful" attitude. Full biographies and contact details are provided for each designer/studio.
