(Preface) 'This stunning monograph is a visual display of the current design practice of the Pentagram partnership. It is the essential complement to an earlier book about their work and ideas, Living by design (1978). An extremely wide range of design solutions are illustrated, many of them in colour, with brief captions commenting on the issues raised by each one. The introduction, "The art of thinking by jumping", is by Peter Mayle. The clients whose work is exhibited here include some famous household names, as well as surprising and out of the way ones. The material illustrated takes in books, posters, calendars, consumer products, packaging, signs, building interiors, company identities, environmental schemes, and an extraordinary diversity of other challenges to the analytical and imaginative resources of this great international partnership. Ideas on design is a vital and stimulating book for everyone interested in design, typography, imagery and communications.'
