9782940361151: Communicating with Pattern: Stripes

Unique showcase exploring the use of stripes for visual communication across design disciplines.

The fact-packed Communicating with Pattern series presents designers with a complete vocabulary of pattern as visual communication. Stripes is a stunning collection of striped design from the worlds of textiles, fashion, interiors, architecture, graphics, product, and industrial design, together with comments from some of the featured creators, giving designers an understanding of the graphic language of stripes.

From Adidas sneakers to City pinstripes and share-dealers' shirts, from barcodes to soccer shirts, stripes signify membership and allegiance. But also the opposite: in nature, stripes communicate danger. Stripes can be bright, childlike, and bold, but also sober, conservative, and exclusive. In art, stripes stimulate the eye in the work of artists such as Mark Rothko. In fashion, they can be formal or strident witness brands as diverse as Jean-Paul Gaultier, Mary Quant, Gucci, and Paul Smith. All this and more is covered in this indispensable book.
