The Graphic Language of Neville Brody 3
The long-awaited third monograph on the work of the most important British designer of his generation, showcasing projects from the last thirty years of his career
By Adrian Shaugnessy and Neville Brody
Neville Brody defined the look of the 1980s music scene as art director of The Face. Since then, Brody consistently proved that he is one of most innovative and shape-shifting graphic designers of the era. While his second monograph was published in 1994, over the last almost three decades Brody has produced a new body of editorial, typographic, information, and interface design of unparalleled boldness and sophistication for global clients that include Samsung, Shiseido, Coca-Cola, the UK’s Channel 4, and Dom Perignon.
The Graphic Language of Neville Brody 3 brings almost thirty years of work together in thematic sections that address the key fields of his vibrant design projects, including typographic experimentation, cultural subversion, and design systems.
Richly illustrated, each project is explored in detail, revealing the work that has defined Brody’s recent practice across six chapters, from major brands to magazine editorials and features, revealing how Brody’s design language has been informed, evolved and remarkably stayed true to key themes and ideas throughout his career to date. Brody has produced a rich, dynamic and surprising body of new work that will attract a new generation of designers and art directors.
This inspirational volume will be essential reading for anyone interested in the evolution of graphic design over the past three decades.
With contributions from Steven Heller, Jo-Ann Furniss, and Naomi Hirayabashi
