This week, the Creative Bloq team were very excited to receive a copy of Viction:ary's latest title Geo/Graphics (opens in new tab), which collects a number of print and motion graphic design projects that utilise simple geometric shapes.
The book is divided into two sections, starting with To The Touch, which exhibits 131 promotional art, textile prints, brand identity, environmental graphics, crafts, photo log, and life-size installations. The latter On The Move chapter showcases 28 multimedia projects by various international designers all specialising in different disciplines. Among them, artists use geometric shapes to model characters, tell a story and portray music.
As well as enjoying stills and a write up on each project, the Viction:ary team have also cleverly added a handy QR code to the motion section, which readers can scan to watch each piece.
Contributors include German animation studio Musclebeaver (opens in new tab), Melbourne-based creative outfit Motherbird (opens in new tab), CG and VFX facility Studio Aiko (opens in new tab) to name a few. So, brimming with inspirational images and with over 250 pages to browse through, there really is something here for everyone.
Geo/Graphics is a celebration of the simple shape, looking at how circles and polygons used as a core graphic medium can form striking visuals and channel meanings.
The book is available now (opens in new tab) priced at $40.
Check out this cool promotional video the Viction:ary team put together in collaboration with motion artist Tomas M. (opens in new tab) to coincide with the book launch:
