Asia is home to roughly 60% of the world’s population—around 4 billion people in over 50 countries—yet the continent covers less than 9% of the world’s surface. With China and India leading in growth and Japan being the most technological place on the planet, Asian graphic design has a lot to contribute to creativity around the world. The aesthetics that have developed in the region, blending tradition and a forward-looking approach to contemporary culture, cannot be seen anywhere else. In contrast to major players Japan and China, countries like Korea, Singapore, India, and Thailand also offer a very individual take on the use of graphics, typography, and many other in many related areas.
Featuring the best and the most recent advertising campaigns, posters, brand-design projects, corporate identity, package design, and editorial design, Asian Graphics Now! is an inspirational and important book for any creative student or professional.
