"Instant Graphics" is an inspirational resource for designers and illustrators, exploring how clip art, digital imagery, and found images have transcended their one-time status as cut-and-paste tools for home designers. Clip art is one of the foundation stones of leading-edge graphic design and illustration, and digital images are used as source material in design. Together, they are vital components in a wide range of work, a means of sourcing (often inexpensively) an incredibly wide range of graphic styles.
This book offers both the inspiration and the means to achieve stunning original work. It features beautiful full-color illustrations with source notes from and interviews with top graphic design professionals. By partnering practical hints and cutting-edge processes with working examples, together with a unique directory section showing where to find clip art in a range of styles, it offers illustrators and designers a vital creative tool. Features inspirational work, case studies, and professional hints and tips. Contextualizes clip art and graphic elements within a culture of remixing and resampling. Includes an extensive directory of clip-art resources, together with advice on copyright issues.
