Suitable for designers, graphic designers, art directors and anyone working within the creative industries, or studying these disciplines, or simply interested in exploring his or her creativity, this book addresses the needs of contemporary practitioners: illustrators, designers, art directors, filmmakers and anyone within the visual arts.
Too often a design or architecture degree is seen as a means to an end (a job in an established practice). But imagine for one moment that there are no employers, no firms to send your CV to, no interviews to be had - what would you do? This book celebrates the various strategies that students and graduates are taking to gain exposure, and more.
Turn the Louvre pyramid into a greenhouse! Design your own folly or maze! Green up a car park or experiment with topiary. Be taken on a journey to celebrated gardens around the world and shake things up with your own doodles.
