This visual book looks into design systems for living brand identities that can change in color, pattern or shape. These identities often follow a system created by the designer but are sometimes created by data which is not controlled by the designer. These open identities generate new versions of themselves by external data feeds. The identity of the weather company, for example, is fuelled by the ever-changing weather conditions in real time.

Corporate identity is one of the major in graphic design - and branding and dynamic identities are the latest trends in that field. Dynamic Identities is the first BIS Publishers book to cover the topic.

The book offers a systematic process for creating living brand identities and gives the reader a wealth of examples, describing international identities that were built on the systems discussed. The cover has a lenticular effect with dynamic identities that change from one version to another while you move the book in your hands.

Review Text

"While Dynamic Identities could be a great addition to a university library, it has enough in it to become a sourcebook for professional graphic designers, either for those Monday mornings short on inspiration, or when looking for a clear system and some great examples to contextualise their work to a client - and even embolden them to go further." -Andrew Missingham, creative consultant
