Client: ICE Publishing and the Urban Design Group.

Challenge: To create a definitive guide to unravel all aspects of communications from early conceptual ideas, through to definitive and final outputs. The book concentrates on principles of graphic communication instead of following latest trends that would easily date.

What we did:The book was written by Director Bally Meeda and compiled, designed and coordinated by the Urban Graphics team. A two year project that was taken from early conception through to final print production.

The book is divided into the following sections:

  • Introduction of graphics in urban design
  • history and evolution
  • characteristics of urban design images
  • graphics in the urban design process
  • producing drawings
  • technical expertise
  • the outputs available
  • managing aspects of production.

Testimonial: Graphics for Urban Design is the definitive guide on how to create better graphics for the built environment. Graphical communication of good urban design is effective, persuasive and help shape the world we live in.

Robert Huxford, Director of the Urban Design Group
