Evophat

by Gingko Press
Publisher: Gingko Press; (July 2002)
Paperback: 64 pages
ISBN: 8489994544
Price: $34.97  Buy It!

Reviewed by Jesùs de Francisco:
Evolutive was an alternative magazine produced in Barcelona by the people behind Vasava Artworks, one of the most innovative design studios in Spain. When they decided to end the project they enrolled guests and friends one last time to contribute work in the same spirit that guided Evolutive, 'the wish to go a little further than we went yesterday.' The result is Evophat, a collection of design, photography, fashion, music, type, illustration, from people like Base, Mike Cina, Leila Mendez, Büro Destruct, Jordi Bernado, Gunnar Knechtel, Typerware, Jørg Richter, and many more.
     Its virtue, eclecticism. Its downfall, inconsistency. A very valuable effort nonetheless.

Mirko Ilic (Design Focus Series)

by Laetitia Wolff (Editor), Xu Wang (Editor)
Publisher: Gingko Press; (April 2002)
Paperback: 144 pages
ISBN: 7500641664
Price: $13.97  Buy It!

Reviewed by Roballoo:
All facets of Mirko's career are covered here from illustrations in his native Bosnia from the late 70's to page layouts for the new York Times Op-Ed pages. Although one might hope for some thumbnails, sketches or even some sort of explanation of how he arrived at some of his concepts or even some text on his thought process but alas that is not the case. As I stated before they let the work speak for itself. For a small reference book on Illustration, layout and design I highly recommend this and of leaving it near your computer. The cover featuring an Apple mouse turned into a hangman's noose, while quite possibly a clichéd image nowadays, was, back in it's day something quite arresting. Clichéd or not this image could easily apply to the creative's need to look beyond the confines of keyboard and screen and search out new vista's of inspiration which I think this book displays quite capably.
