"Sound And Design" covers the whole range of music-related graphic design. While the focus lies on the designing of CDs (Music and Audiobooks) "Sound And Design" also includes all kinds of music-related merchandise. Therefore it provides a fascinating demonstration of how to apply an aesthetic developed for an album or an artist to all kinds of media and objects.
In the wide field of design, the designing of textiles is regarded as a special discipline. It requires a deeper understanding of the technical side of the production of textiles as well as a specific knowledge of each fabric, of its uses, its properties and characteristics (dyes, fibres and colourings). «New Textile Design» covers the many and various forms of the discipline. It includes clothing, caps, shoes, scarves, bags and appliqués, bedclothes, upholstery and lampshades. Even textile trinkets and other accessories are featured on the following pages.
The collected designs range from central motifs (on t-shirts, for instance) to patterns which often have to compete with the visible structures of the fabric. Additionally, the very form and manner of the presentation can become an interesting part of the work. Thus, we've included everything from sketches to elaborately staged photos.
Motives, patterns, textures - «New Textile Design» covers the whole range of soft goods.
