I wish I had bought this at amazon. It caught my eye at Urban Outfitters and I ended up paying $40+. The book delves into design outside of the usual formalities of print. Instead what you get to see is top designers making use of their techniques in other ways such as ipod skin designs to completely remodeling hotel rooms. I like this book because it stirs up inspiration for ideas completely outside the box.

I bought this book on a whim and was extremely surprised. Despite the mash of popular graphics spread across the front, the inside is packed full of traditional and non-traditional design, illustration, and multimedia projects and experiments. There are so many different expressions represented, in a multitude of mediums, and a ton of methodologies and implementations (from snow boards to hotel rooms). It seems like whenever I get stuck and my process stalls, this book is always the first to come down off the shelf. I would recommend this book for anybody's library as general reference for color, shape, rhythm, and imagination.

Graphics Alive es excelente para la inspiración gráfica, (con su interesante caratula plateada) es una galería extensa de imágenes con una buena gama de proyectos: integracion de espacios, moda, aplicaciones en autos, etc. En mi opinión destaca la participación de artistas y colectivos de moda como Miki Amano y Friends With You ,y clientes como Tokidoki, entre otros. Incluye pequeños resumenes de los artistas.

when i bought this book, i was hoping to see some sophisticated graphics done by graphic designers (like stressing on typography and just pure shapes). it seems that most of the graphic elements are designed for a younger audience, though. however, it DOES then give it a very lively visual appeal to the audience. so not exactly what i'm looking for, but overall a really good inspirational book!

I like it so much (as a graphic design & artist) that I ordered it for all my college students (computer graphics). It's a great book. Very inspiring.

i got this as a gift and i love love love it. it's incredibly visually stimulating (of course) but it gets me all pumped to be creative and design more and design better :) it's really amazing how unique style and design is out there. this book is great as a coffee table book, for inspiration, for reference, just an all around rad book to own.
