As Sarah Jessica Parker once told Vanity Fair, If you re a nice person and you work hard, you get to go shopping at Barneys. It s the decadent reward. Known as the style hub where art, culture, and fashion merge and a mecca for discerning clothing connoisseurs since 1923, Barneys New York is a Manhattan institution that lives and breathes its mantra Taste.

This stunning visual album, designed by Stefan Sagmeister, traces the evolution of New York fashion from the perspective of Barneys New York by show- casing the fashion designers whose careers the company helped launch, including Giorgio Armani, Dries van Noten, Christian Louboutin, and Proenza Schouler; images of its storied window displays; iconic advertising campaigns shot by Herb Ritts, Juergen Teller, Deborah Turbeville, and Corinne Day, among others; its celebrity collaborations with stars like Jay Z and Lady Gaga and philanthropic efforts such as its recent Transgender project by Bruce Weber; and the acclaimed store design and architecture of its flagship stores and restaurants. This one-of-a-kind gem captures the luxury, whimsy, and quintessential Manhattan esprit of Barneys New York.

In recent years, there has been considerable interest in the problems that public spaces face because of the design of commercial signs. The negative consequences that commercial signs can have on the visual quality of urban areas and further more, on people's quality of life, has been studied from both architectural, planning and psychological perspectives.While the issue of visual pollution, as this phenomenon is commonly described, has been widely debated, there is as yet no clear conclusion as to how best to control commercial signage and whether different urban contexts and people from different backgrounds and cultures have universal or distinct preferences. Several different commenrcial signage approaches are currently applied to different historic cities, but these initiatives are not based on principles derived from the perception and evaluation of users.Drawing on a range of comparative and contrasting empirical studies of historic city centres in the UK and Brazil, this book examines questions of commercial signage control management, the preservation of historic heritage and user preference and satisfaction. The author takes an environment behaviour approach to this research, involving theories, concepts and methodologies related to environmental psychology, architecture, planning and urban design. In doing so, it argues that there are in fact visual preferences common to the majority of people, independent of their urban context and that these common views can be useful to the development of a general theory of how to control commercial signage. In conclusion, the book suggests that the best way of controlling signage is not only to recommend general guidelines related to the operation of commercial signage, but also to recommend design principles that can create commercial streetscapes evaluated positively by different users.

Why do winning brands appear to be more creative and authentic than less successful ones? Despite the strong link between famous brands and the products sold under their name, there is still a gap in understanding the relationship between product design and brand-building - Monika Hestad plugs that gap.Branding and Product Design discusses key questions about the link between product and brand and about design processes and innovation. It examines these questions on both macro and micro levels and provides the reader with tools to help understand the role of products in building a brand, and how to bring the brand and the product design process together. These are based on the author's research into branding and product design, her years of teaching these topics, and her own industrial practice. Qualitative interviews delivering an 'insider' perspective on major brands bring abstract concepts to life.The book includes case studies from well-known and up-and-coming brands and will prove invaluable to design practitioners, marketers, managers and other professionals working close to designers. It will also benefit those teaching and studying, particularly if they are involved in the new higher education programmes where business schools and design schools are co-operating to reflect the intersection between design and branding.

Sign Painters is about the people, practices and art of sign painting and hand lettering. The book is comprised of transcribed interviews and images Faythe Levine and Sam Macon collected over two years of filming with working sign painters across America. The conversations, ruminations and thoughts expressed by these working sign painters communicate the history, the current state, and the future of this oft overlooked trade. Though the book will be a great read for the sign painting community, the book is more directed at your average aesthetically minded citizen. Anyone interested in art, design, public space, community, etc. should find this book of value. Sign painting occupies an interesting cross section of art and commerce, design and utility, artistry and labor, and this book tells this unique story.

This irreverent survey celebrates the more populist and enduring work in graphic and industrial design that was a product of the Soviet era - a period that remain politically sensitive and under-explored, yet whose influence on the objects and aesthetics of Russian life and thought has been profound. Made in Russia presents fifty such masterpieces, from pioneers of Soviet technology such as the Sputnik, the Buran snowmobile, and the LOMO camera to icons of quotidian culture such as the fishnet shopping bag, the beveled glass, a Cold War-inspired arcade game, and Misha the Olympic bear. Edited by the journalist and author Michael Idov - a Soviet product himself - and including essays from Boris Kachka, Vitaly Komar, Gary Shteyngart, and Lara Vapnyar, the collection explores the provenance of these objects in the forgotten Soviet culture and the unique climate for design from which they could only have emerged.

Filling in a form may be an everyday experience, yet as an aspect of design that affects all our lives, forms are often overlooked. Order forms, invoices, applications and questionnaires are all standardized ways of requesting or presenting information, designed to focus on the essentials and so make life faster and simpler. But if a form is too complicated, confusing or obscure, it can become a barrier to clear communication, wasting time and money and potentially harming the publics perception of a business or brand. Successful forms do exist efficient, streamlined and even stylish but they are a real challenge to create. This unique and invaluable source book shows what good form design can achieve. Packed with practical advice and inspiring ideas, it brings together a comprehensive collection of great designs for both print and digital media, showcasing a range of thoughtful, elegant or witty approaches to form creation and proving that attention to even the smallest design elements can make a big difference to the way that people and organizations interact.

This important and substantial scholarly book, well illustrated with tables, line drawings and maps, is the first to gather together and review the evidence for trends in production of table wares and amphora-borne goods across the Iberian Peninsula and Balearics from the second to the seventh century AD. In it Paul Reynolds analyses trends in Iberian exports across the Roman Empire and offers a detailed synthesis of Roman trade in fine wares, coarse wares and amphora-borne goods and shipping routes, from the Black Sea and eastern Mediterranean to the western Empire, the Atlantic coast and Britain. The book draws on both published excavation reports and papers, and provides new, unpublished data from the author's past and continuing work in Beirut, Athens, Butrint, Durres, Carthage, 'Lepcis Magna' and 'Zeugma', to provide an unprecedented overview and synthesis.

Véritable anthologie des images du tabac, cet ouvrage exhume un monde parti en fumée. Qui se souvient du temps où les Français fumaient partout et en toutes occasions, dans les avions, les cinémas, le métro, les salles de classe? Qui se souvient des publicités qui vantaient les mérites des Fontenoy, Gitanes, Boyard, Flint et autres Celtiques? Des années 1920 aux années 1980, les plus grands affichistes ont mis leur talent au service du tabac. Affiches qui devaient amuser ou séduire, attirer ou convaincre, éveiller ou réveiller le désir et l'imaginaire. Ce volume d'images et de commentaires sans précédent retrace l'aventure exceptionnelle d'un produit qui a marqué de son empreinte toute une époque dont le souvenir reste gravé dans la mémoire collective. Agrégé d'histoire, Éric Godeau a notamment publié en 2008 Le Tabac en France de 1940 à nos jours. Histoire d'un marché. Préface de Pascal Ory.
