RGB: Reviewing Graphics in Britain by Andreas Hidber
Reviewing Graphics in Britain is a comprehensive, up-to-date collection of graphic-design work produced in and around the United Kingdom.
The book, written by Marc Valli and Richard Brereton, was designed by Andreas Hidber, an Editorial Designer and Art Director from Switzerland.
“To stand out in this overcrowded arena, British graphic designers have had to make their work ever more clever and polished, better informed. This fuels the distinctive, refined styles of such artists as Mark Farrow, Sea, Spin, Browns, Fuel, James Joyce, Zak, Studio 8 and Bibliotek. With such a wealth of talent and material, the main question in compiling a book on the best of new British design is not what to put in, but what to leave out. Stylistic novelty and visual distinctiveness are our key parameters, rather than background or reputation. RGB features artists from highly diverse backgrounds, at all different stages in their careers, from household names to the newest young talents. RGB captures the UK’s explosively vibrant and unpredictable realm of graphic design, in 250 pages packed with exciting visual material.”
