Antoine+Manuel- Compilation Vol 1 book

May 11, 2010

‘Antoine+Manuel- Compilation Vol 1’ book. Another answer given in response to one of my Survey Monkey Questions.

“The French duo Antoine+Manuel have been making work together for more than ten years. The designers have worked on a wide range of projects from designing campaigns for theaters to constructing crazy 3-d sculptures to designing furniture and home decor. This book is a huge compilation of their work which all feels really fresh to me. There’s lots of amazing typographic treatments and some really cool looking illustrations, pages from sketchbooks and the invitation made for a Christian Lacroix show.”

For me the pages of the book feel very engaging, exciting and interesting. From the images, each page seems to have a different style and feel to it, keeping up the engagement with the viewer. I had seen the first image below in the book Special Print Effects. The rest of the images are from their compilation book.


Wieden & Kennedy Book

May 11, 2010

In my Survey Monkey questionnaire, two responses given to questions about designers/studios making unique books and the question about any unusual books that you know of, Wieden and Kennedy was mentioned in response.

So I started to look into any books that they had created and found this Wieden and Kennedy book.

“Designer Christin Spagnoli and copywriter Andrew Dickson traveled around the world to all seven W+K offices. They were tasked with creating a global book to be used for new business pitches, the press, and recruiting. They spent several days in each office learning about the work, absorbing the culture and trying to get a handle on what makes this place tick.”

You can see more images by clicking on the picture below. The pages look full of interesting images and there are some nice layouts to look at in terms of inspiration for the research book. I also like the black on black printing on one of the books pages.

“The result is the just-published Wieden+Kennedy, a story of who we are. It’s a book. With a smaller book inside it. And stickers of Dan and Dave. And a T-shirt iron-on of the rules. And a Tokyo Lab DVD. And a plus shaped data stick tucked into the back cover. Which connects to the digital experience which includes TV and interactive work, a global video and the brand new W+K blog destop widget.”
