Louise Fili: Inspiration and Process in Design
Renowned graphic designer and author Louise Fili takes us on a personal tour through her most famous brands, books, and packaging, revealing how research and vintage typography give rise to her ingenious designs.
Fili explains how her work—still done by hand—transforms from early sketches to final design. Her instantly recognizable style, elegant, and timeless, takes shape on the page before our eyes. Accompanying essays and vignettes provide background for her research, brainstorming, and design process, still done mostly by hand.
Much of the content in the book appears in print for the first time. Before and after images, photographs, sketches, and more, show how her instantly recognizable style takes shape. Timeless and elegant, Fili's designs provide excellent material for inspiration and brainstorming.
Includes an introductory essay by Steven Heller, a new interview with Louise Fili, and much more!
