Back cover copy

Clients and consumers need designs they can quicklyunderstand--designs that employ clear lines and shapes, clear images and text. In this manner, the work in Minimalist Graphics exemplifies easily readable, timeless designs from contemporary graphicdesigners who embrace minimalist principles for effective communication.

With an introduction exploring the history and significance of minimalist design, Minimalist Graphicsis organized into sections revealing a wealth of successful minimalist identity, publication, and printed design projects. Background information is provided for each design by the firm that created it, and a biography section reveals how each firm established itself. The result is a modern and highly inspirational book on a timeless design principle--that less is more and usually better!
