We’ve written about a lot of Victionary’s new publications over the last couple of months, and who can blame us; they’ve got their finger on the pulse of trends in art, design and fashion more so than the vast majority of publishing outfits out there. So forgive us if we defer to them once again, but they’ve got another book fresh off the press and unsurprisingly, it’s a corker.
Geo/Graphics is a brand new volume that explores the prevalence of geometric designs in contemporary graphics, from brand identities to live music visuals. Divided into two sections the book separates neatly the divide between static and moving work, the first examining over 130 printed pieces and the second, 28 multimedia projects. So if you’re a fan of studios like Hey, Patternity, Build, Dumbar, wilfredtimo, Fons Hickmann m23 and like a bit of polygonal design then this is definitely one for your festive wishlist. Just look at that cover!
