Synopsis

Best known through his own magazine, i-D, but also internationally recognized for his work with Italian and German Vogue, Donna, Mexx and Fiorucci, Terry Jones has been one of the most influential graphic designers of the 1980s. His style, rooted in punk, exemplifies much that is characteristic of contemporary British design. This book, designed by Jones, explores and explains "instant design", the use of readily available techniques such as photocopying, typewriter faces, Polaroids, handwriting, type and picture distortion, computers and block graphics. Jones' current work in television (notably Reportage and 01 for London) and video is also covered. Hundreds of examples show the extraordinary range and creativity of his output. Captions and a multi-layered introduction provide the context for some of the decade's most copied graphics.
