Bath, Banes, United Kingdom, 2011/11/24 - Future, the special-interest media group, today reveals Computer Arts Collection, a new series that forms the definitive guide to graphic design, typography, illustration, branding, photography and advertising - Futurenet.co.uk. LSE: FUTR
Launching on 8th December, each bimonthly issue is 226 pages packed with insight and inspiration from – and for – the global design industry. The ultimate addition to any designer’s bookshelf, Computer Arts Collection blends stunning imagery, in-depth analysis and peer-to-peer advice with unprecedented access to industry icons.
Editor Nick Carson says: “Computer Arts Collection will inspire you throughout the year, but this is much more than just a coffee table book. Invaluable insights from your fellow designers will help your own client briefs run more smoothly, while our specially commissioned Trend Report will ensure your studio stays ahead of the curve where it matters.”
At the heart of each guide is the groundbreaking 48-page Studio Project, guest-edited by a different leading design studio every issue and featuring a project that’s produced exclusively for Computer Arts Collection. Laying bare the studio’s creative process through every stage, from idea through development into production, it includes in-depth behind-the-scenes video diaries packed with invaluable secrets and tips.
Sponsored by industry titans iStock and Pantone, the first Studio Project is guest-edited by Planning Unit, an exciting new London studio set up by two former senior designers from Neville Brody’s Research Studios. The final outcome is SPECIES, a beautiful photographic book about endangered animals (further images of the project are available on request).
Other unmissable regulars include the 20-page Trend Report, produced exclusively for Computer Arts Collection by trend-forecasting agency FranklinTill; the 30-page Folio showcasing stunning, inspiring design; and an indispensable talent directory full of the very best creative professionals.
Combining style and substance, Computer Arts Collection will keep design professionals and ambitious graduates alike up to speed with challenging ideas, fresh approaches, technological developments and more.
Fiona Tully, Publisher of Computer Arts, says: “The latest launch from Computer Arts takes the topics that are core to all professional designers and delivers unprecedented industry access, exclusive insights, analysis and behind-the-scenes coverage.
“There is a gap in the market for a publication that’s both inspirational and informative, something with substance as well as style. We’ve been delighted by the positive response from readers and the industry alike who have bought into the concept and supported the new launch by investing from issue one.”
Computer Arts Collection launches on 8th December priced at £15.00.
