Traditional and modern design come together to form a sharp new aesthetic in Geometric Graphics, a collection that features the best of contemporary design utilizing geometric shapes. While it may be easy to take shapes like quadrilaterals, circles and even straight lines for granted, the projects in this volume show how designers can create fresh concepts with these seemingly rigid forms. The works in Geometric Graphics tap into the philosophy of geometry, allowing them a sense of timelessness despite the undeniably current feel of the designs; album covers, calendars, clothing lines, even packaging for canned fish are reworked with crisp, minimalist designs centering around timeless shapes that are used in visually fascinating new ways. With projects drawn from a multitude of brands and designers, Geometric Graphics is a valuable resource for design creatives as well as those casually interested in the hipness of squares.
