- About Author
While Scandinavia has long had a worldwide reputation for furniture, architecture, and industrial design, its graphics tradition has been much less well-known. In the last five years however, a new wave of designers have won Scandinavia an international reputation for graphic design excellence and influenced designers and design audiences worldwide. This book surveys the contemporary Scandinavian graphic design scene with 360 lavish color illustrations that reflect the prolific output of a new generation of Scandinavian talent. Featuring work ranging over several mediums; from pixel-based art, 3D character design, and web and video projects to record sleeves, flyers, posters and editorial design, 55° North brings together fifty-five of the best graphic designers from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, many of whom are now working in London and New York.
