Mini Graphics: Maximum Impact in a Mini Format
|Output Type:||Other form of assessable output|
|Brief Description/Editor(s):||Featured designer|
An eye-catching and visually effective graphic does not necessarily have to be a big, bold design statement, as demonstrated by "Mini Graphics", a stunning presentation of quirky, innovative graphics in a mini format. A small yet well executed graphic in a limited space can enhance the look and quality of an iconic design, infinitely maximising its visual impact. Today the fast-paced evolution in technology and tools has affected many aspects of graphic design. With vector-based software, designers can now create and implement intricate visual strategies in fine detail to achieve their results, while high-resolution software allows for the sharp reproduction of graphics at miniscule sizes. This is a spectacular showcase of the many different styles, forms and applications of miniature motifs onto invitations, business and greeting cards, stationery, CDs, calendars, mailings, catalogues and flyers. Presenting examples of work created by leading studios, this inspirational volume includes interviews and information about each designer and client with a description of the individual design concept and creative process behind each project.
