The book suggestion of this week is titled Grid Systems in Graphic Design/Raster Systeme Fur Die Visuele Gestaltung by Josef Muller-Brockmann and it's a classic book about design and grid systems that despite the age is still useful and the base of most grid design for web and mobile apps. From a professional for professionals, here is the definitive word on using grid systems in graphic design. Though Muller-Brockman first presented his interpretation of grid in 1961, this text is still useful today for anyone working in the latest computer-assisted design. With examples on how to work correctly at a conceptual level and exact instructions for using all of the systems (8 to 32 fields), this guidebook provides a crystal-clear framework for problem-solving. Dimension: 81/2 x 113/4 inches, English & German Text, 357 b&w examples and illustrations.. Buy now!

Creamier brings together 100 of the most exciting contemporary artists emerging today, each chosen by prominent international curator. Original resource, Creamier truly reflects the current moment and is vital for both those in the art world and those that are new to contemporary art. Designed by Atelier Dayakova - The book had to be radically different from its four predecessors. A tough design problem — the content is still the same: 10 international curators choose 10 contemporary artists...but how to make it look different? The frustration to find an original solution has propelled me to abandon traditional book format and transform Creamier into a large format newspaper. The idea is quite simple — announcing 100 new artists is a bit like making news. Inspired by the Financial Times, 300 pink unbound pages come packaged in bespoke portfolio.

As a web designer, one of the things I seek the most is inspiration on how to lay out the content and deciding on the right grid and nothing inspires me more than editorial design. To look through a magazine with different eyes, noticing all the details on the grids, the use of color and typography. Try it out! The magazine I picked to display today has a beautiful layout, very strong use of grid and very charming typography and color scheme.
