Logo A Lot

Nearly two inches thick, this indispensible resource guide contains wellrecognized logos (collected between 1980 and the present) designed by 172 of the world’s best-known graphic designers. Hard-bound and alphabetized by artist, this is a definitive volume of marketing iconography of the moment. Designers range from Seattle-based artist Art Chantry, who penned the most identifiable trademarks of the grunge era, to the global giant branding firm Siegel + Gale, as well as many worthy but lesser-known artists from Europe, North America and Asia. Entries span the spectrum from Fortune 500 companies to independent-label musicians to fashion designers and every type of brand in-between. An important addition to any graphic design library.

Inventory / Inventaire 2

For close to two decades, M/M (Paris), the high-octane design duo of Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak, has arguably influenced more aspects of contemporary art, fashion, music and publishing than any other designers. Their collaborations with hyper-stylish fashion designers (Yohji Yamamoto, Balenciaga, Givenchy), musicians (Björk, Madonna, Kanye West), magazines (French Vogue) and contemporary artists (Liam Gillick, Philippe Parreno, Pierre Huyghe) have resulted in a wealth of beautiful, barrier-breaking work.

A glossy, extensively illustrated catalog, inventory 2 includes reproductions and installation photos of posters, books, films, sculptural installations, lighting, candles, mirrors, frames and furniture pieces. As part of M/M’s new book-publishing venture, this is the second published “inventory” of the partnership’s work, an augmented version of the first edition from 2006.

Each object has its own page, and is annotated with a complete history of every exhibition or publication in which it has appeared. Just about everything the duo produces, from perfume to silk scarves to posters, is a collector’s item from the start. This indispensible reference for the worldwide fans of M/M (Paris), smartly designed and efficently produced, is likely on its way to becoming a collector’s item, too.

Art Direction for Movie Promotion

Noboru Okano

From the master Japanese advertising designer Noburu Okano, an eye-popping color retrospective of 20 years of posters, flyers, pamphlets, invitations and novelties designed to advertise a world of cinema. Many of the films are Japanese, but a good percentage are American, like Brokeback Mountain, Hotel Rwanda and Gus van Sant’s Elephant. It is a revelation to see how differently Okano approached using the film images for the Japanese market, what he chose to emphasize, compared to the American market’s designers. In every case, his mastery of the medium shines through. A fantastic opportunity to see how a product can be marketed in a different culture.

Neon Addict

A must-have handbook for anyone with a fondness for fluorescence: the world’s first collection of graphic works designed to show off the possibilities of fluorescent inks, from the inexhaustible geniuses at Japan’s BNN. Eight groups of designers have produced works showing effective and interesting uses of fluorescent inks in this beautifully printed book (some graphics use up to five plates in a luxurious process color print). Not to mention the beauty of the visuals, this is a valuable collection of spot color print samples and a design idea reference. Also includes concept notes, PANTONE ink colors and a selection of papers from matte to coated.
