    Terence Conran, Stephen Bayley
    Design is all around us, it is impossible to avoid. Everything that surrounds us has been designed - from the paperclip and the iPod, to our homes and the way we live. Design: Intelligence Made Visible is epic, opinionated, comprehensive in scope and forms the definitive statement on design for this century. Written by Stephen Bayley, one of the world's best known commentators on modern culture and Terence Conran, one of the world's leading designers and arbiters of taste, this book pays tribute to the leading names, movements, materials and processes such as furniture, fashion, cars, graphics, products, signs and symbols. The book combines essential facts with authoritative opinions - everything, as the industrial designer Raymond Loewy once said, from a lipstick to a steamship - but brought right up to date.A series of essays begin by introducing how design has its place in modern cultural history including Terence Conran's definition of design. The main section of the book comprises an A-Z of iconic people, products and processes from 20th century to the present day with biographies of leading designers from past and present, as well as corporate histories, product appraisals, and witty accounts of relevant management, cultural and social theories. A major appendix has Bayley and Conran assessing the up and coming designers of today and finally a chapter on branding concludes with a provocative methodology to assess brand value.Beautifully designed and beautifully written, Design: Intelligence Made Visible is simply the indispensable guide to the contents of the modern world.

    Authors:
    Steve Luck
    The growth in popularity of digital photography in recent years has been unprecedented. Much of the reason for this is the low cost of the equipment needed, and advances in editing and printing technology which have put the medium within reach of anyone who fancies trying their hand at creating digital pictures. So, can anyone pick up any digital camera and take a picture! Well, yes, but taking a good picture requires a little more than that. In this book, Steve Luck looks at the features of the different types of camera available and explains the key terms - ISO, megapixels, white balance, etc - to help you choose your camera wisely and knowledgeably and so make you pictures stand out from the crowd. The ability to manipulate your images is of course the other main attraction of the digital camera. This book gives you a comprehensive introduction to the basic image editing techniques in Photoshop - cropping, sharpening, adjusting colour, correcting red-eye, removing blemishes - and tells you exactly what you need in terms of computer software.It then looks at some of the more advanced image-editing techniques, such as selective blurring, dodging and burning, as well as how to get the best results from printing.
