    • Inspirational to any graphic designer, student of graphic design, teacher of graphic design, writer, poet and/or student of politics that would enjoy learning about global issues in a different way from what traditional mass media (television and newspaper) expose us to
    • Since the book is socially conscious it will speak to any social-political not-for-profit organisations, for example Amnesty International, who also fight for human rights
    Full Description

    Many graphic design books are currently available, but none that juxtaposes poetics and the visual language of graphic design so cohesively. Continuum challenges designers to leave their comfort zone to become “part poet” thereby having the potential to meld two communities into one.
    We project as our society is more digitised, any product released to it has more potential to transform itself into digital noise rendering the product itself ineffective. Effectiveness is the key and printed material is hands down more effective. If spacetime is right, any work can permeate though the consciousness of society.
