Andreas Uebele Material
Monograph Volume 3, 2003–2016 [Unit 32]
Editor: Andreas Uebele
Design: büro uebele visuelle kommunikation

Edition of 1400 (100 special edition)

‘Everything is material. Material is a starting point from which something new arises. We’re assigned a task and we take it forward; we add to what already exists’
Andreas Uebele

A major presence in contemporary German graphic design, Andreas Uebele trained as an architect, a thread that continues to present itself in much of his work. From the graphics of the Reichstag to the iconic signage of the Vitra campus, his experiments lead to dynamic solutions, while simultaneously maintaining lightness and clarity.

This new book presents 85 of büro uebele’s projects through two types of materials: the raw materials from which they emerged, and materials from creative collaborators who’ve accompanied the studio along the way. These include Matthew Carter, Adrian Frutiger, Massimo Vignelli and Hermann Zapf.

SPIN – Adventures in Typography [Unit 31]

SPIN/Adventures in Typography [Unit 31]
Editors: Tony Brook & Adrian Shaughnessy
Design: Spin

Edition of 1000

Continuing the conversation started with the studio’s 2015 monograph SPIN 360° [Unit 19], SPIN/Adventures in Typography looks at the typographic flotsam and jetsam of Spin’s creative process; a repository for trains of thought, itches that needed to be scratched, as well as fresh new journeys.

Spread over 52 pages, SPIN/Adventures in Typography is a visual record of SPIN’s creative interests and outputs – combustive explorations not afraid to plunge into the abstract, teetering on the edge of legibility.

A journal boisterous with typographic riffs, remixes, and rearrangements – SPIN/Adventures in Typography is an invitation to engage in conversation, an ellipses rather than a full stop.

Soft back, 52pp, screen printed envelope

Cover: Cut short foiled book cloth
Paper stock: 100gsm Fedrigoni Free Life Cento, one colour throughout

Paula Scher – Works (Special boxed signed edition)

Paula Scher: Works (Special boxed signed edition) [Unit 30]
Editors: Tony Brook & Adrian Shaughnessy
Design: Spin
Edition of 100

“Paula Scher is the most influential woman graphic designer on the planet”
Ellen Lupton
Abstract: The Art of Design, Netflix

This definitive, chronological visual record spans Paula’s early days in the music industry as an art director with CBS and Atlantic records; the launch of her first studio, Koppel & Scher; and her 25-year engagement with Pentagram.

The monograph is also a visual record of contemporary New York’s urban fabric, indelibly transformed by the designer’s innovative approach to environmental graphics and identity design: from MoMA to Charter Schools; from the High Line to Shake Shack.

Her logos for global corporations and cultural institutions have cemented her reputation as a giant of identity design.

A large section is devoted to the designer’s socially and politically-motivated posters, New York Times Op-Ed illustrations and campaign work.

The book also provides the most up-to-date look at Paula’s idiosyncratic hand-painted maps, an unusually prolific artistic practice complementing her still-growing graphic legacy.

In a long interview, Paula’s frank and open words lay bare the reality of design culture in the USA. The 520-page book is designed by Spin, under the creative direction of Tony Brook.

Paula, the ‘accidental postmodernist,’ has come to be seen as an emblem of American design: a ‘master conjurer of the instantly familiar.’ (ted.com)

Size: 203mm×258mm

FHK Henrion – The Complete Designer

FHK Henrion
The Complete Designer [Unit 13]
Author: Adrian Shaughnessy
Design: Spin

Edition of 2000

FHK Henrion has no equal in British graphic design. No UK designer – then or now – can match his sheer depth of accomplishments and range of abilities. He had an exceptional talent for rational and systematic graphic design at a time when design was still a cottage industry. Almost single-handedly he created the model of the modern professional graphic designer.

Born in Germany, he trained as a textile designer before becoming a skilled and celebrated poster artist. As a British citizen after WWII, he designed publications, exhibitions, household products, interiors and jewellery, and in the 1960s he became the founding father of modern corporate identity in Europe.

Henrion was also a notable design educator, and an energetic spokesman for his profession. He published books, wrote articles, lectured extensively and was the force behind numerous design organizations. He was admired and liked by his employees, pupils and associates, and especially by his clients. But he was also a designer with a social conscience, and a designer who rebelled against the over-commercialisation of the design profession in the 1980s – a profession that he had helped create.

This book is the first comprehensive monograph of the work of FHK Henrion. Lavishly illustrated it charts his early experiments as a pre-war poster artist and culminates in his work as the creator of some of the most celebrated logos and identities of the 20th century, including Tate+Lyle, KLM, Blue Circle Cement and LEB.

Lance Wyman – The Monograph

Lance Wyman
Title: Lance Wyman: The Monograph [Unit 20]
Author: Adrian Shaughnessy
Design: Spin

Edition of 2000

This monograph is the first major publication devoted to Lance Wyman’s entire output. It showcases the achievements of a long and productive career, from his early work for General Motors, through his iconic designs for the Mexico 68 Olympics, to the Minnesota Zoo and his more recent projects.

Lance Wyman will go down in history for his Mexico 68 designs, but he has also completed commissions for a huge variety of other projects. Many of these have been designed for the general public, and exist in the lived environments of cities and institutions.

A recurring feature in Lance Wyman’s work is a deep understanding of local culture. The book looks in particular at Wyman’s close relationship with Mexico, and his revolutionary blend of modernist design principles with pre-Hispanic folk art.

The monograph also examines Wyman’s role as a pioneer of wayfinding, and the many city-wide projects he has worked on during his long career.

The book features many previously unpublished items and a selection of pages from Wyman’s vast unseen archive of graphic design ‘log books’.

Editors: Tony Brook & Adrian Shaughnessy
Design: Spin/Unit Editions
Essays: Adrian Shaughnessy & Steven Heller

In these two new books you will find the covers of design magazines, journals and periodicals of all kinds. They come from different eras – the 1920s to the present day. They come from many countries – including Japan, India, Russia, Switzerland, USA and Iran. And they cover many topics – graphic design, typography, architecture, interiors, print, theory and history. But above all, they are brilliant specimens of innovative visual design.

There’s no better place to view the stylistic rollercoaster of graphic design than the covers of design magazines – it’s a fast-track education in the history of design and typography. As Steven Heller notes: “As we head deeper into the age of hand-held devices, covers will become obsolete. So, it is for this reason that preserving and archiving these documents of international design, one cover at a time, is beyond useful.”

Unit 17

Type Plus investigates the practice of combining typography with images to increase effectiveness, potency and visual impact. Today, graphic designers use type in partnership with graphic elements in ways that turbo charge meaning and impact.

Type plus image – or images – can greatly enhance typographic expression. And letterforms themselves, when redrawn, combined, distorted, or augmented with decorative embellishments, can enhance meaning and lend emotive qualities to all kinds of typographic communication.

By focusing on a host of contemporary practitioners from around the world, Type Plus creates a picture of a new dynamism in typographic expression. The era of type as a passive, semi-invisible holder of meaning is long gone.

Book includes interviews with Non Format, Two Points Net and Erik Brandt.
