Indie artists, designers and illustrators are doing it for themselves! Tough times often lead to greater creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. Where once designers might have produced a set of postcards to promote themselves or simply for fun, demand for individual design has led to an explosion of quirky and covetable products for sale via the Internet. Self-initiated projects, such as T-shirts or button designs, are fast becoming businesses in themselves.
This book showcases over 500 of the cutest and most exciting graphic products by over 90 practitioners from around the world, including: books, magazines and zines; toys; posters, prints and canvases; fonts and typographic 3D products; clothing; and accessories.
