What do the top Nordic graphic designers have in common, and what makes each one unique? This substantial third volume in a series on Nordic architecture and design showcases not only the diversity among graphic designers from the five Nordic countries, but also the distinctly Nordic identity they share. Both an encyclopedia of contemporary expression and a catalogue of leading designers, it features established titans (Kari Piippo, Acne, and Bleed) as well as rising stars. Each chapter is devoted to a single designer and begins with a short interview. The book provocatively asks: Should graphic design now be considered a fine art rather than a tool in the service of commercial interests? This comprehensively illustrated book is a must-have addition to graphic design libraries.
