Neville Brody’s work sits at the intersections between graphic design, communication design and graphic art, pushing boundaries and blurring lines between them as he fuses influences from art, design, fashion, music, low and high cultures. Brody has been one of the most consistently innovative and shapeshifting graphic designers of the past fifty years. He has produced a body of commercial work covering editorial, brand identity, typography, systems, information and interface design of unparalleled boldness and sophistication for global clients that include Shiseido, Coca-Cola, Samsung, Nikon, LVMH, Nike and Dom Perignon, and UK clients such as the BBC, Channel 4, Tate Modern and The Times. The Graphic Language of Neville Brody 3 also captures a body of one-off creative works and site-specific collaborations that are motivated by creativity, political and cultural viewpoints, provocation, and expression.
The Graphic Language of Neville Brody 3 brings almost thirty years of work together in thematic sections that address the key fields of his vibrant design projects, including typographic experimentation, cultural subversion, and design systems. Richly illustrated, each project is explored in detail, revealing the work that has defined Brody’s recent practice across six chapters, from major brands to magazine editorials and features, revealing how Brody’s design language has been informed, evolved and remarkably stayed true to key themes and ideas throughout his career to date. Brody has produced a rich, dynamic and surprising body of new work that will attract a new generation of designers and art directors.
This inspirational volume will be essential reading for anyone interested in the evolution of graphic design over the past three decades.
