Set Design For Printed Matter explores the endless possibilities and powerful impact of using the materials and techniques of set design in graphic design projects.

The works featured are sure to inspire graphic designers to conceptualize, create, and innovate. In an era of ubiquitous digital images, handmade designs carry unexpected force and creativity. Set design is more than prop building; it is a combination of craftsmanship, creativity, and styling in which textures, colors, and shapes all play a part in creating an image that conventional graphic design techniques simply cannot achieve. Going behind the scenes of the design process, this book examines creative and strategic elements of set design such as handmade craftsmanship and 3D graphics. By deploying complex paper techniques and materials as well as an infinite variety of objects, the results create a world in which imagination and reality overlap unexpectedly.
