Sonic Graphics by Matt Woolman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The world of music has often been where today's designer superstars have forged their graphic design language. From jazz cover art to club flyers, from CD-packaging to fly posters, the culture of music offers unlimited possibilities for visual experimentation. Sonic Graphics / Seeing Sound not only showcases this rich genre, but is the first book to get to the heart of the relationship between music and its successful graphic expression. Exemplary work from studios around the world is presented in three sections: Notation analyses the use of sign and symbol systems in creating identity and branding for music artists, recording projects and performances; Material considers how products can package the intrinsic nature of the music they contain; and Atmosphere looks at how space and multidimensional environments can be used to visualize sound. A reference section includes studio websites and a glossary.
