From the Publisher. Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak are among the most distinctive and influential voices in contemporary graphic design. Through close associations with the music, fashion, and art worlds, M/M have developed one of the most original and striking visual languages in the world. Originally working for independent music labels, M/M caught the attention of the fashion world, working for Calvin Klein, Jil Sander, Kenzo, Givenchy, Yohji Yamamoto, and Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga, eventually landing them the art directorship of Interview and French Vogue, as well as rich long-term collaborations with independent producers and music artists, notably Madonna and Björk. Although print and an illustrative approach to typography lie at the heart of M/M’s work, they have also produced unexpected three-dimensional designs for the stage, restaurants, and the perfume industry. Featuring interviews with key collaborators and design by the cutting-edge Graphic Design Facility, this ambitious monograph is a rare insight into the world’s most intriguing—and iconoclastic—image-makers.
