Weniger ist mehr, sagt man oft. Doch allzu häufig gilt auch: Einfach ist verdammt schwer. Dieses erhellende kleine Buch präsentiert die zehn Gesetze der Einfachheit für Wirtschaft, Technologie, Design und Alltag. "Simplicity" ist der Rettungsanker in einem Meer immer komplexerer Prozesse und zunehmend unüberschaubarer Funktionalitäten. Es ist nicht verwunderlich, dass viele Menschen heutzutage gegen eine Technologie rebellieren, die ihnen zu kompliziert geworden ist, ob es sich um DVD-Recorder mit verwirrend vielfältigen Funktionen handelt oder um Software mit 75-MB-"Read me"-Anleitungen. Doch es gibt Gegenentwürfe: So hat das klare, extrem reduzierte Design des iPod den Welterfolg dieses kleinen Geräts begründet. Manchmal geraten wir allerdings in das "Simplicity"-Paradox: Wir möchten etwas, das einfach zu verstehen und leicht zu benutzen ist, aber dennoch soll es alle denkbaren hochkomplexen Aufgaben erfüllen. In diesem erfrischend kurzen und pointierten Buch stellt uns John Maeda zehn Gesetze vor, mit denen sich Einfachheit und Komplexität in Einklang bringen lassen – Leitlinien, wie wir aus Weniger Mehr machen können. Der Professor am renommierten Media Lab des Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) und weltweit gefragte Grafikdesigner erkundet die Frage, wie wir das Konzept der "Verbesserung" so umdefinieren können, dass es nicht zwangsläufig Mehr bedeutet. Maedas erstes Gesetz heißt "Reduzieren", denn es ist nicht notwendigerweise hilfreich, neue technologische Features hinzuzufügen, bloss weil wir es könnten. Aber diejenigen Eigenschaften, die wir brauchen, sollten in einer vernünftigen Hierarchie organisiert sein (Gesetz 2), so dass die Nutzer nicht von Funktionen abgelenkt werden, die sie gar nicht brauchen. Maedas kompakter Führer zur „Simplicity“ im digitalen Zeitalter verdeutlicht, wie dieses Konzept zum Eckpfeiler von Organisationen und ihren Produkten werden kann – und warum es sich als treibende Kraft für Wirtschaft und Technologie erweisen wird. Wir können vieles vereinfachen, ohne Bedeutung und Nutzen einzubüßen. Und die Balance zwischen diesen Polen erreichen wir mit dem 10. Gesetz: "Einfachheit heißt, das Offensichtliche zu entfernen und das Bedeutsame hinzuzufügen."

Graphic designer, professor, historian, and author Philip Baxter Meggs (1942-2002) was born in 1942, Meggs began teaching in the Communication Arts and Design Department at Virginia Commonwealth University, chairing the department from 1974 to 1987. In 1983, he published his History of Graphic Design--the book that not only put graphic design in its historical context; it put graphic design on the cultural map. Before Phil Meggs wrote his seminal book, graphic design was left largely unchronicled. A History of Graphic Design offered designers and students of design a foundation on which to build, a starting point from which to move forward, and a context for graphic design's place in history. This single work afforded an immediate legitimacy to a field that had, until that moment, been considered more of a trade than a profession. As Steven Heller wrote in PRINT magazine, Meggs "laid more than a groundwork; he built a monument to graphic design's legacy. Now he is an integral part of that legacy." Meggs: Making Graphic Design History is at once a retrospective of Phil Megg's achievements as a historian, educator, and artist in his own right, a deserved tribute to his lasting influence on the graphic arts, and a loving memoriam written by family, friends, and colleagues who were lucky enough to have known him.

Type and Image The Language of Graphic Design Philip B. Meggs What is the essence of graphic design? How do graphic designers solve problems, organize space, and imbue their work with those visual and symbolic qualities that enable it to convey visual and verbal information with expression and clarity? The extraordinary flowering of graphic design in our time, as a potent means for communication and a major component of our visual culture, increases the need for designers, clients, and students to comprehend its nature. In this lively and lavishly illustrated book, the author reveals the very essence of graphic design. The elements that combine to form a design–– sings, symbols, words, pictures, and supporting forms––are analyzed and explained. Graphic design′s ability to function as language, and the innovative ways that designers combine words and pictures, are discussed. While all visual arts share common spatial properties, the author demonstrates that graphic space has unique characteristics that are determined by its communicative function. Graphic designs can have visual and symbolic properties which empower them to communicate with deep expression and meaning. The author defines this property as graphic resonance and explains how it occurs. After defining design as a problem–solving process, a model for this process is developed and illustrated by an in–depth analysis of actual case histories. This book will provide insight and inspiration for everyone who is interested or involved in graphic communications. While most materials about form and meaning in design have a European origin, this volume is based on the dynamic and expressive graphic design of America. The reader will find inspiration, hundreds of exciting examples by many of America′s outstanding graphic designers, and keen insights in Type and Image.

Neuer Blick auf die Neue Typographie

Julia Meer stellt die bisherige Rezeptionsgeschichte des »Mythos Neue Typographie« in Frage und arbeitet zugleich die frühe Professionalisierung des Grafik-Designs auf. Durch eine systematische Auswertung von Fachzeitschriften der Jahre 1900-1933 zeigt sie, dass die Neue Typographie weder neu war noch aufgrund ihrer Modernität abgelehnt wurde. Vielmehr wurde sie früh von den Fachleuten gefördert und zu einem werbewirksamen Stil weiterentwickelt. Damit ging ein Prozess einher, in dem sich einige Protagonisten der Avantgarde von Künstlern zu Designern professionalisierten. Die Studie eröffnet neue Perspektiven auf die Wirkungsweise und Verbreitungsprinzipien von Design und das Selbstverständnis von Designern.
