Don't let the look of this book fool you. Type Idea Index might appear to be a fat little vinyl-bound book, but really, it's a fat little vinyl-bound tool-an idea-generating, horizon-expanding, knowledge-broadening power tool that can be used to boost the creative output of designers, illustrators and anyone else who uses type. Type Idea Index will expand your knowledge of type and help you brainstorm new ideas every time you design with letters and words. The basic principle behind Type Idea Index is simple: ideas breed ideas. If you seek new ways to employ type in your works of art and design (or new twists to apply to your current typographic techniques), open Type Idea Index. You'll find yourself face-to-face with 650+ custom-created examples of typography and type-intensive design. For optimum user-friendliness, these samples are organized according to the theme they express (energy, elegance, order, rebellion, etc.) and the real-world application they relate to (initials, monograms, logos, headlines, paragraphs, etc.). Type Idea Index is the sixth installment in the best-selling, globally popular Index series by Jim Krause: Idea index, Layout index, Color index, Design basics index, Photo idea index. Book jacket.
