As creatives take contemporary design in fresh and exciting directions, they are also waving goodbye to the ornate patterns that have saturated our visual culture for the past decade.
MIN is the first thorough look at this rebirth of simplicity in graphic design. It showcases around 150 outstanding minimalist designers working across a wide range of formats and media—from independent magazines and album covers to corporate identity and branding. Only the finest international examples from the last three years are included, ensuring that MIN is at the vanguard of this exciting new movement.
With more than 400 original photographs exclusive to the book, each accompanied by a commentary on the design and production processes involved, MIN shows the creative possibilities that design for print continues to offer in the digital age. It is both an invaluable source of inspiration and a visual reference for all professional and student graphic designers.
