Dear Reader, Exploration is the engine that drives innovation. Innovation drives economic growth. So let’s all go exploring. - Edith Widder We should all put our weight into that. :) We are always curious what happens in the creative world; we explore the field. While doing this we often bump into the greatest people, all with really good (book) ideas! How do we find the time to do that? We are happy to share our secret with you through one of our new titles, Don’t Read this Book, following the ‘To Don’t List’ method. When you say ‘no’ to one idea, you have more time to execute another one. The more you subtract, the more focus and time you get. Which leaves us with a great list of new Spring 2016 titles! So we explore in order to drive innovation, but when design thinking is applied to strategy and innovation, the success rate of that innovation dramatically improves. So, how do you come up with a creative solution for problems? How do you become a creative thinker? Is this a talent possessed by a gifted minority or can this ‘secret’ be taught? Read all about it in The Secret of the Highly Creative Thinker. The Innovation Maze helps us through our innovation journey and to navigate the maze. It shows four clear routes overcoming the obstacles to successfully deliver new business cases for products, services, and business odels. Not only should we innovate and change our ways of thinking in our businesses, but we should also take on the challenge of designing the future of our society by becoming innovation leaders, as described in Designing for the Common Good. This brings us to the question, Are We There Yet? This book is an insight into what it takes to compete by being design-led.

Innovating for BIS also means exploring new markets for our gift books and products, getting people acquainted with new game concepts like Dilemmarama and asking them to handle tricky choices with rough edges and quirky options based on the ‘Would You Rather?’ question. Not only are we Creating with Artists in cooperation with Stedelijk Museum of contemporary art, featuring workshops with Victor and Rolf, Marcel Wander etc., but we are also making Trashures (as the word says with rubbish) and teaching you how to become a Creative Chef by creating your own amazing eating experience. We have many more great new titles, 16 in total. We invite you to take a close look at them and all other titles not only in this catalogue but also on our brand new website www.bispublishers. com. Sign up for our newsletter and social media to make sure you don’t miss out on any news! I would like say a big thank you to all our fantastic authors making it possible to present such a great list each season and of course to our valued readers appreciating our books and completing the circle! As ever, if you have a good idea for a new project, don’t hesitate to contact us. We would love to hear from you! The BIS Publishers team Bionda Dias bionda@bispublishers.com

New Titles The Politics of Print A Global Design Manual By Ruben Pater Many designs that appear in today’s society will circulate and encounter audiences of many different cultures and languages. With communication comes responsibility; are designers aware of the meaning and impact of their work? An image or symbol that is acceptable in one culture can be offensive or even harmful in the next. A typeface or colour in a design might appear to be neutral, but its meaning is always culturally dependent. If designers learn to be aware of global cultural contexts, we can avoid stereotyping and help improve mutual understanding between people.

• Enhances your visual literacy for communication beyond borders and cultures • Full of examples of political meaning in graphic design • Great for students to create more effective and responsible visual communication.

Politics of Print shows the importance of visual literacy when communicating beyond borders and cultures. It explores the cultural meaning behind the symbols, maps, photography, typography, and colours that are used every day. It is a practical guide for design and communication professionals and students to create more effective and responsible visual communication. Ruben Pater is a designer and researcher from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He finished the mas er programme of the Sandberg institute in 2012, and as ‘Untold Stories’ he works on self-initiated and collaborative projects between journalism and graphic design. Past projects are Double Standards (2012), the Drone Survival Guide (2013), and Behind the Blue Screen (2014). His work has received several international awards and is featured in exhibitions around the world. 160 pages | 17 x 11,1 cm | paperback | ISBN 978 90 6369 422 7 | £ 12.95 Publication date: April 2016

Characters without a heart Research by Aiwen-Yin

love (traditional)

A culture war is being fought out between supporters of traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese characters. Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the diaspora use the traditional characters. Simplified Chinese is used on mainland China and Singapore. Traditional Chinese was institutionalized during the Qin dynasty in the third century BC. These complicated characters could only be read and written by the elite. Some traditional characters needed eighteen strokes to be written. In daily use, the more practical simplified characters have been in use for centuries. Only during the cultural revolution in 1956 it was formalized by the communist regime to help raise literacy rates and strengthening the economy by standardizing the language across the country. The first version of simplification was rushed and had inconsistencies in symbol replacement, making it prone to errors. Over decades, rounds of character modifications were needed to correct the inconsistencies. Those who kept traditional characters, like Taiwan and Hong Kong, have argued that the original aesthetic of the writing was lost in simplified Chinese. They say those who write in simplified characters have no heart, because the traditional character for love (愛) has the symbol for heart (心) inside it, and simplification (爱) took out the heart and replaced it by friend (友). As a counterargument, proponents of simplified Chinese argue that those who use traditional Chinese ‘have no friends’. Thusly, the aesthetics of language have become an instrument in the political tensions between China and Taiwan.

New Titles Are We There Yet? Insights on How to Lead by Design By Sam Bucolo The fundamental question that the book addresses is: Are our innovation efforts aligned to the challenges of our times? We face high costs, global competition, low productivity, and technology disruptions. Our education system is geared towards solving known problems through an inductive thinking mindset. We have relied on massive technology investments as our source of competitive advantage, but our growth is declining. If we want to maintain our standard of living, we need fi ms to grow. Firms therefore need a new approach to innovation, one that focuses on customer engagement in its business model. The concept of design thinking is often described as the mindset for fi ms to make this transition. But with so much being written on design thinking, why do so many fi ms struggle to adopt this mindset and make this transition?

• Design thinking made concrete for SMEs • Understand what it means to lead by design to compete in the global economy • Understand what the practical steps are in achieving this and how firms need to be supported along this journey

Sam is a leading academic and practitioner in the emerging field of design-led innovation and has led projects that have transformed businesses by embedding design capability. As Professor of Design and Innovation at the University of Technology Sydney, he leads a team investigating the value of design-led innovation to the Australian Economy.

New Titles Don’t Read This Book Time Management for Creative People By Donald Roos As creative people, we have ideas. Some of us have many ideas, others have really good ones, and most of us have many really good ideas. But most of these never see the light of day. Why? If you ask a creative person, the answer will always revolve around time. We simply need time to execute an idea (and do it well)—more time than we have.

• Getting things done for creative people • Packed with models, advice, and exercises on time management • Links with the ‘To-Don’t-List’ app

Don’t Read This Book focuses on how to make choices about everything you do in your daily creative practice and life. The book follows the ‘To Don’t List’ method: When you say ‘no’ to one idea, you have more time to execute another one. In short: the more you subtract, the more focus and time you get. The book is divided into three parts: Life, Workplace, and Projects. It covers everything from defining our life goals, to writing a fi e sentence-long email, to leaving out as much as possible in a project. Whether you are a student or professional, this book will save you time. (Of course, if you don’t read it, you will save some time directly.) Donald Roos is an independent typographic designer, entrepreneur, and teacher at the Royal Academy of Art in the Netherlands. In his daily life as a designer he creates movie titles for motion pictures and national television. He also designs complex interfaces and teaches type design and typography. He set up several online projects because he loves to execute new ideas. His biggest problem: too much to do and too little time. That’s why he came up with the To Don’t List method and this book. 160 pages | 21,5 x 14 cm | paperback | ISBN 978 90 6369 423 4 | £ 12.95 Publication date: May 2016

New Titles Dilemmarama The Game is Simple: You Have to Choose By Dilemma op Dinsdag Would you rather.… We all know the game of hard choices between alternatives that are both equally (un)desirable. Dilemmarama turns the old question into a social and exciting game full of hard choices with rough edges and quirky options, to laugh about, discuss, and battle over. The creators brought the ‘Would you rather’ question to new heights by adding funny illustrations and by inventing some tricky rules so you can play Dilemmarama with your friends as a card game, discuss the pros and cons, and learn a thing or two about each other.

• Card game based on the ‘Would you rather’ question • Hugely successful in The Netherlands • Tricky dilemmas, fun illustrations, excitement guaranteed

The dilemmas in here all have alternatives that are both very undesirable. The fi st rule of the game is, you HAVE to choose. The game consists of 60 parts of a dilemma, enough to create over 1,000 different dilemmas. The goal of the game is to create the hardest dilemmas by playing out a dilemma card that makes the dilemma on the table as equal as possible. The other players then have to vote for their choice. The more even the voting turns out, the more points you score. Or in this game the less punish points you get. The game is a bitch. A second game play option is ‘How good you know your friends?’ In this variation you have to predict what your friends will choose and you score when you are right. Dilemmarama guarantees hours of awkward moments, laughter, and tough discussions over hard choices. This has FUN written all over it. Don’t forget: you have to choose! Master it and you become the Dilemmaestro. 64 cards in a box | 9,8 x 13,3 x 4 cm | ISBN 978 90 6369 424 1 | £ 13.95

Recent Titles Simplicity: A Matter of Design By Per Mollerup As the world becomes increasingly complex and complicated, simplicity becomes increasingly in demand. We all seek simplicity in small or large measure. We strive to create simplicity at work and at home. While the lives of our early ancestors may appear simple to us, it would not be simple for us to live those lives. This takes us to the root of simplicity: Simplicity is not an absolute quality. It depends on our experience, knowledge, understanding, and skills. Simplicity: A Matter of Design offers a set of terms that will allow us to discuss simplicity in design with precision. It looks into the basics of simplicity and researches more in depth three aspects of design: functionality (simplicity for comfort), aesthetics (simplicity for pleasure) and ethics (simplicity for conscience).

Recent Titles Old Masters Memory Game

Optical Illusions Game

By Mieke Gerritzen

By Paul M. Baars

The Old Masters Memory Game collects the most famous and beloved portrait painters from the 16th and 17th centuries. The game is fun to play, educational, and a feast for the eyes. The task, as always, is to collect two cards that make one set: in this case, two portrait paintings by the same painter.

The Optical Illusions Game is a new game that resembles the memory game, but with some interesting differences. The optical illusions in this game were selected by Paul Baars, a world famous author and expert on optical illusions. For this game he has selected a broad range of mindboggling illusions, from the famous classical ones to new illusions created by contemporary designers and artists.

This is a wonderful gift item for gift shops, museums that collect the old masters, and art lovers in general. The game consists of 50 cards and 25 sets featuring world-famous portraits by the likes of Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticello, Titian, Frans Hals, Albrecht Durer, Goya, and many others. The sets are clearly recognizable by the posture of the figu e, the facial expression, the style of painting, and attributes such as clothing and hairstyle. To help you along, you always have the brochure to refer back to, which has all the paintings in pairs and a short explanation on the painters. Mieke Gerritzen is a designer and the director of the Dutch Museum of the Image (MOTI). 2 x 25 cards in a box | 14,5 x 7,5 x 4,5 cm | ISBN 978 90 6369 386 2 | ÂŁ 13.95

The goal of the Optical Illusions Game is to collect four cards that form one optical illusion. The player who collects the highest number of optical illusions wins the game. It consists of 80 cards and 20 illusions, as well as a brochure with a picture of each illusion and a brief explanation. It contains three game bonuses: 1. Instead of a set of two, the player has to find a set of our. 2. When the set is completed, the player has to fit the four cards together to form one image. 3. And, presto: the four cards form the image of an optical illusion to discover and marvel at. Paul M. Baars is a designer, producer of design products, and author living in Amsterdam. He has written many books about optical illusions and street photography. His latest book Confusion Illusion was published this year by Thames & Hudson. 20 optical illusions | 80 cards in a box | 14 x 14 x 2,6 cm | ISBN 978 90 6369 388 6 | ÂŁ 13.95

Insights on How to Lead by Design

Time Management for Creative People

The fundamental question that the book addresses is, Are our innovation efforts aligned to the challenges of our times? If we want to maintain our standard of living, we need fi ms to grow. Firms therefore need a new approach to innovation, one that focuses on customer engagement in its business model. The concept of design thinking is often described as the mindset for fi ms to make this transition.

We simply need time to execute an idea (and do it well)—more time than we have. Don’t Read This Book focuses on how to make choices about everything you do in your daily creative practice and life. The book fol-lows the ‘To Don’t List’ method: When you say ‘no’ to one idea, you have more time to execute another one. In short: the more you subtract, the more focus and time you get. Whether you are a student or professional, this book will save you time.

CO LAB:

Material Alchemy

Sketching

The object of CO LAB: is to promote the ideals and methods of contemporary design collaboration by informing on cultural context, surveying some unexpected practitioners, and highlighting techniques and practices that apply to studio work and forward-thinking education initiatives. There will be three main sections with 10-20 short-burst chapters in each, befitting the collection/handbook format.

Material Alchemy has been devised to showcase the most innovative, thought-provoking design approaches to materials within the 21st century. Enlisting the help of luminaries from the world of science, technology, and design showcases new responses to material innovation and provides key insights into how material will be utilised to shape our future environments.

A book on sketching for product designers has long been desired. The lack of a good manual led the authors of this book, who both teach design drawing techniques, to take the task into their own hands. The result is an incredibly broad and practical survey of sketching techniques for product designers. This book can be regarded as a standard book on design sketching for product design students.

Shaping Text

This book is a collection of in-depth interviews with the most influential ype designers in the business as well as up-and-coming young guns about the motives and methods behind their typefaces. The interviews have been published before in the monthly newsletter of MyFonts.com, the world’s largest web shop for digital fonts based in the USA.

Few of us will appreciate whether the typeface we read is legible, but we quickly notice if it is not. Creating type for optimal legibility is therefore an ungrateful task, since readers only register your failures. This book will not only help type designers create high-legibility typefaces, but also help graphic designers determine the optimal typeface for a given project.

Writing, typesetting and printing have become part of almost everyone’s experience. However, many users are clueless about how fonts work and how to communicate best with readers. Shaping Text takes a practical and broad approach to typography. It examines the constituting elements of graphic products, including type, image, ornament, layout, and color.

The Spontaneous City

Inspiration

This book presents the concept of the Spontaneous City as an alternative direction of design thinking and urban planning, as opposed to traditional rigid city planning. This city is user-centered, never finished, and the esult of supply and demand. The book draws on the work and experience of Gert Urhahn, who works as an urban designer and architect in the city of Amsterdam.

Design methodology in design and architecture has changed significant y over the last ten years. More than ever, graphic attributes are used in contemporary architecture. A number of new design methods and applications emerged through the use of digital media, leading to a paradigm shift in the way we design. Inspiration aims to achieve a full overview of these exciting new topics from a theoretical and practical background.

This is the completely renewed edition of the standard reference book Wayshowing. This new edition by Per Mollerup is fully updated with digital signage systems and has much more tool-oriented, practical content. Moreover, all signage examples are newly selected for this edition. The cases include traditional print solutions, as well as all types of digital wayfinding/ ayshowing. Author: Per Mollerup | 240 pages | 30 x 19 cm | hardcover | £ 29.95 | ISBN 978 90 6369 323 7

Architecture and Spatial Design

Performative Geometries

Folding Architecture

Supersurfaces

Within the scope of the workshop on Performative Geometries, students at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki developed individual spatial design strategies by analyzing textile techniques and their underlying geometrical spatial appearance. The book contains visuals of the form studies between fashion, textiles, space and architecture.

Folding is a relatively new trend in architecture. It’s a very playful way of designing and offers free rein to spontaneity during the design process. This book gives insight into the possibilities together with results of the research the architectural faculty of TU Delft conducted into this technique since 2001. Vividly illustrated with a survey of much-discussed concepts, projects and buildings.

This is the sequel to Folding Architecture. It shows the results of Sophia Vyzoviti’s design method of design through folding. The research in here goes a step further using more durable materials than paper but with similar qualities. The booklet makes clear how the technique of folding can be applied not only in architecture, but also to industrial, product or textile manufacture.

Soft Shells

Modular Structures

Digital Manufacturing

Soft Shells is a follow-up title to Sophia Vyzoviti’s bestselling books, Folding Architecture and Supersurfaces. Soft Shells investigates textile as a retronovel architectural device which is porous and deployable. The book is lavishly illustrated with form experiments and has three essays that provide the reader with a state-of-the-art context for the architectural discourse on form-generative surface.

Modular Structures examines morphogenetic processes based on a combination of digital and analogue modelling and manufacturing techniques. The visual studies shown in this book have been produced in the academic context of the Technische Universität Darmstad in classes and workshops held by the author.

This book examines the possibilities emerging for design and architecture by the -introduction of novel CAD and digital manufacturing techniques, organised within fi e production techniques: cross-segmentation, accumulation, frameworks, loops and folding.

Architecture and Spatial Design

Computational Architecture

Bio-structural Analogues In architecture

Eccentric Structures in Architecture

Computational Architecture showcases many form studies using digital tools and techniques like drilling, twisting, knotting, triangulating, lofting and framing. These techniques are used systematically to explore spatial, geometrical and structural conditions, leading to the emergence of abstract prototypes.

This inspirational book seeks to discover the architectural potential of biological structures as can be found in nature, in the world of seashells, corals, plants and animals. The structures that give biological forms strength, movement and fi mness are studied, illustrated and used as an inspiration for design experiments.

Author: Asterios Agkathidis | 160 pages | paperback | 15 x 10,5 cm | £ 10.95 | ISBN 978 90 6369 287 2

Author: Joseph Lim | 232 pages | 15 x 10,5 cm | paperback | £ 16.95 | ISBN 978 90 6369 204 9

This book presents studies in architectural form focusing on the relationships between force, form and space to develop structure. The design processes of different structures vary from inherently unstable forms to multi-span spaces in buildings to the creation of multi-layered spaces within physical shells.

Operative Design

Conditional Design

The core idea for this book is the use of operative verbs as tools for designing space. These operative verbs abstract the idea of spatial formation to its most basic terms. Examples of these verbs are expand, inflate, nest, twist, lift, embed, merge and many more. The verbs are illustrated with threedimensional diagrams and pictures of designs which show the verbs ‘in action’.

Conditional Design is the sequel to Operative Design. This book will further explore the operative in design in a more detailed, intentional, and functional manner. In order to further understand these volumetric studies, it is imperative to give the volumes scale along with connection between volumes, if -applicable, and openings within the volumes. The conditions presented are not definiti e, but are meant to serve as explorations of an iterative process.

Games

Dilemmarama The Game is Simple: You Have to Choose equally (un)desirable. Dilemmarama turns the old question into a social and exciting game full of hard choices with rough edges and quirky options, to laugh about, discuss, and battle over. The creators brought the ‘Would you rather’ question to new heights by adding funny illustrations and by inventing some tricky rules so you can play Dilemmarama with your friends as a game.

Old Masters Memory Game collects the most famous and beloved portrait painters from the 16th and 17th centuries. The task, as always, is to collect two cards that make one set: in this case, two portrait paintings by the same painter. The sets are clearly recognizable by the posture of the figu e, facial expression, the style of painting, and attributes like clothes and hairstyle. To help, there is always the brochure with all the paintings in pairs and a little explanation on the painters.

Optical Illusions Game Optical Illusions Game is a new game that resembles the memory game, but with three bonuses: 1. Instead of a set of two the player has to find a set of our. 2. When the set is completed, the player has to puzzle the four cards into one image. 3. Presto: the four cards form an image of an optical illusion to discover and marvel at. Concept: Paul M.

You Are What You Eat Memory Game

Can You See What I See Memory Game

The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog

Marije Vogelzang, author of the successful Eat Love book, adds a fantastic game to the BIS list of memory games; unsurprisingly, it is all about food. Marije Vogelzang selected food that has a specific and consis ent effect on our body. The task is to correctly match a food to its effect on our body. Examples include cola and burping, garlic and bad breath and pepper and sneezing.

Everyday objects get a whole new meaning or come to life by adding small sketches to them. This is the principle for this new poetic and funny memory game. One card shows an everyday object and the matching card makes you look at the object in a different way because the artist added a little drawing.

This attractively finished ypographic memory game includes 25 variations of the letter ‘A.’ Players attempt to find matching cards and the one who has most sets wins the game. Information about the letter is included on the card, and a separate folder provides a general history of typography.

London Memory Game

Van Gogh Memory Game

Play Van Abbe

London Memory Game is made up of 25 pairs of cards on typical London themes: Big Ben, shopping, London architecture, bridges, pubs, museums, greasy food, et cetera. Creatively visualised, it is an extra treat to play a game while getting to know the city better and from a new perspective. A folder that gives insight into the chosen subjects is included.

Van Gogh is one of the world’s most admired painters and the Van Gogh Museum is a must on every Amsterdam visitor’s list. In collaboration with the museum, BIS produced the Van Gogh Memory Game. Each set of cards consists of two different images, together forming a clear theme and telling a little story about Van Gogh.

The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven is famous for its experimental approach towards art’s role in society. Its collection includes key works by Lissitzky, Chagall and Picasso. It is no sur-prise that the museum welcomed the idea of creating a memory game. The sets have striking similarities in subject or technique, but are never by the same artist.
