Behance (opens in new tab) and Adobe (opens in new tab) have launched their first-ever book, Super-Modified: The Behance Book of Creative Work (opens in new tab).
The weighty 288-page coffee table book distills extensive real-time data into a gorgeous, tightly curated celebration of the latest creatives, trends and techniques set to shape the future of art and design.
Behance is the world's largest network for showcasing and discovering creative work, receiving a phenomenal daily influx of new projects from around the world.
In Super-Modified, the curatorial team survey the landscape of global creativity through 18 themed chapters, and share their insight into what’s coming next across fields ranging from fine art and illustration to fashion, photography, web design and digital art.
From innovative twists on traditional crafts to insightful implementations of new technologies, Super-Modified looks at how today's emerging creatives are driving forward the design world.
"Super-Modified looks at how a humble material, like felt, is being remixed in office spaces, character designs and furniture; how recycled design is making everything from discarded aluminum cans to shipping containers fair game for reinvention; and how the grand, cinematic visions of traditional architecture are finding their way into interior spaces," says Scott Belsky, vice president of Creative Cloud Ecosystem and Behance at Adobe.
"With the lightning-fast evolution of the creative tools we use to manipulate photos, videos and more, while "reality" was once what you see right in front of you, it's becoming just one ingredient among many in the end product of innovative creators. There used to be a line where reality ended and the great unknown began — now that line is beyond blurred and new frontiers in what looks and feels "real" are opening up."
Priced at €39.90 / $55.00 / £35.00, Super-Modified is a full-colour, hardback coffee table book, published by Gestalten and on sale now.
