(Preface) 'NEW DESIGN is an eye-opening collection of innovative graphic design from the world's major design centers. This inspiring series explores firsthand the unique design challenges, and the cultural and social factors that have shaped the featured work.

Powerful graphic design has made London and "British design" a potent force and not just a name. As in Tokyo, Los Angeles, or Paris, design studios in London turn up in every configuration. Some are large and corporate in mindset and structure, with the resources to produce consistently slick work. Others are small outfits with from one to a dozen or so ambitious, risk-taking comrades in arms who take aim against the blandness of conventional, anonymous design. Like their counterparts in other media centers around the world, they are helping to define more clearly the graphic designer's role as author of a style or of a mode of communicating visually that has its own strong, distinctive voice.'
