Viction:ary can always be relied upon to produce exciting compendia that identify the state of various factions of the design world. Their raison d’être is the production of easily digestible, visually led books that pick up on current trends in design and explore otherwise underexposed parts of a industry we all know and love – from design for kids and slick business cards to the use of neon colours and the application of infographics. This time though their subject is one that’s incredibly close to our hearts; the design studios of Great Britain.
64GB is a 250-page beast of a book that features (you’ll kick yourself) 64 Great British individual creatives and studios considered to be at the forefront of the design industry. There’s a handful of names in there you’ll definitely know, but a whole heap of lesser-known designers to whom Viction:ary have given some much-deserved attention – Shaz Madani and Patrick Fry in particular. So even if the memory card-esque exterior doesn’t necessarily float your boat (the link does seem just a little bit tenuous) be assured that the content is still well worth your time.
