New in the “100 Ideas that Changed…” series, this book demonstrates how ideas influenced and defined graphic design, and how those ideas have manifested themselves in objects of design. The 100 entries, arranged broadly in chronological order, range from technical (overprinting, rub-on designs, split fountain); to stylistic (swashes on caps, loud typography, and white space); to objects (dust jackets, design handbooks); and methods (paper cut-outs, pixelation).
Written by one of the world’s leading authorities on graphic design and lavishly illustrated, the book is both a great source of inspiration and a provocative record of some of the best examples of graphic design from the last hundred years.

The compendium MIND THE FUTURE summarises in a file-card format the most important developments in the economy, demography, society, technology, politics and ecology. In each area, ten relevant contemporary trends are identified and their possible future development analysed. The 60 trends are – wherever possible – supported with scientific fact and illustrated with images by Cologne artist Manu Burghardt. MIND THE FUTURE is an “open book” and reflects the fact that we can, in the end, only formulate hypotheses about the future and will need to revise our assumptions as time goes by. The book is aimed at readers who want to find out more about today’s key developments and their possible effects on the future. MIND THE FUTURE gives rein to both established and lateral thinking and offers inspiration as well as support for decision making.
