Computer Arts Collection is a brand new annual series of six comprehensive guides coming from the authors of Computer Arts, and the first volume – focusing around Graphic design – is on sale in the United Kingdom. Don’t get fooled by the glossy coffee table book – it is more than that and then some.
The 224 page guide goes into details about inspiring graphics from around the world – in the FOLIO section, the newest aesthetic trends – in the TREND REPORT section, the business side of graphic studios – in the INDUSTRY FOCUS section, the creation process – in the STUDIO PROJECT section, what are the world’s best graphic studios – in the PROCESS section, interviews – in this issue Angus Hyland. Add to that much more needed information about world’s top design cities that are put under the microscope in the GLOBAL DESIGN section, advice from leading designers in the FUTURE PROOF section, and last but not least a directory with info on the talents featured in the issue, encouraging you to get in touch with them.
That’s indeed a wide array of resources that will become capital on any art studio’s shelf for guidance and support. You have an online sampler of the graphic design magazine to browse for more details about the current issue here.
