From the Publisher. Geo/Graphics is a focused study of geometric designs in today’s creative currents. Looking at design projects worldwide that take circles and polygons as the core graphic medium to channel meanings, the book presents how versatile shapes facilitate communication and fortify memories in diverse contexts and fields of design.

The book is divided into two sections. Starting with graphics used in daily life, “To The Touch” investigates a world underlaid by visible and invisible geometry. Sifting through more than 130 print works, products, and site-specific installations, this segment exhibits how simple shapes help to bind and build by virtue of modularity and, together with colors, connote complex brand visions, visualize memories, and pattern the real world. Following the mute and the still, “On The Move” showcases 28 multimedia projects in which international creatives from various disciplines draw on geometric graphics to model characters, tell a story, and portray music content in motion pictures for television broadcast, concerts, and visual presentations.
