GRAPHIC DESIGN, REFERENCED
Two FL@33 projects are referenced in Rockport's book Graphic Design, Referenced: A Visual Guide to the Language, Applications, and History of Graphic Design by Bryony Gomez-Palacio and Armin Vit. We are extremely humbled by the authors' decision to feature our award-winning projects Singing Pasta or Eat and Be Eaten and our self-published Trans-form magazine to represent the Royal College of Art, London (which of course could easily fill the 400 or so pages alone – but hey, who is complaining...)
The book is a visual and informational guide to the most commonly referenced terms, historical moments, landmark projects, and influential practitioners in the field of graphic design. With more than 2,000 design projects illustrating more than 400 entries, it provides an intense overview of the varied elements that make up the graphic design profession through a unique set of chapters:
___ 'Principles' defines the very basic foundation of what constitutes graphic design to establish the language, terms, and concepts that govern what we do and how we do it, covering layout, typography, and printing terms.
___ 'Knowledge' explores the most influential sources through which we learn about graphic design from the educational institutions we attend to the magazines and books we read.
___ 'Representatives' gathers the designers who over the years have proven the most prominent or have steered the course of graphic design in one way or another.
___ 'Practice' highlights some of the most iconic work produced that not only serve as examples of best practices, but also illustrate its potential lasting legacy.
___ Graphic Design, Referenced serves as a comprehensive source of information and inspiration by documenting and chronicling the scope of contemporary graphic design, stemming from the middle of the twentieth century to today.
