book of the week
As the Blueboat “librarian”, I’m assigned to pick out a book a week for our studio as inspiration and thought it would be worthwhile to share it with all of you!
Graphic Design for Fashion by Jay Hess and Simone Pasztorek
Fashion is a high-impact, fast-paced industry that demands an aspirational visual message and requires constant reinvention. Graphic design for fashion must represent the core values of the brand while pushing boundaries and expectations.
With each of the four chapters printed on a different paper stock, the book itself reflects the exciting graphic developments in the field of fashion. The result is a visually diverse collection of graphic design, which is a rich source of inspiration for new and groundbreaking production techniques and a perfect reference point for those across the creative industries.
Before graduating from Central St Martins, London, Jay Hess studied graphic design in NC State University. He has worked as a designer for a number of years, in the US and UK. He now runs the London-based studio byBOTH with Simone Pasztorek, mainly working in the fields of editorial, graphic, type and web design.
