i haven’t bought a design book in a long, long time. the reason being that i find all the awesome i need on the internet… for free. BUT that is a bad attitude to have, and i have decided to keep my collection going and growing. hence the purchase of this book called Graphic Design for Fashion by Jay Hess and Simone Pasztorek
This visually led book contains a global selection of the best graphic design studios’ work within the fashion industry – from packaging and lookbooks to swing tags and invitations – with exclusive insights from both clients and designers. The book features not simply the visual identities of big budgets and luxury brands, but showcases the creative processes of the world’s leading design studios.
