Box collects various exciting, cutting edge elements of the graphic world of character, toy and print design by presenting work from 71 artists in different fields around the globe in an impressive compendium of innovation, eye candy and inspiration. Although from disparate backgrounds, all the work shares a prominent, largely figurative style, and impressive visual impact and appeal. Divided into seven chapters representing Comics, Graffiti, Hand drawn Illustration, Ingenious Product, Computer Graphics, Short Film and Miscellaneous Illustration, each chapter explores where graphic designers find inspiration, where their visions merge and what they can learn from each other. With 14 interviews with the artists describing their style, philosophy and approach to their craft. Packaged as a design object, Box comes in a zippered and embossed clamshell box.
