Description
Anyone who has ever (or never) thought about how graphics and design affect our daily lives should take the time to explore this inspiring and mind opening new book.

Design is everywhere! When we wake up, when we check the time, when we brush our teeth, when we get dressed, when we have breakfast, when we cross the street, when we call to say we'll be late again, when we work, when we relax and when we go to sleep. 24 hours a day we are simply surrounded by graphics and illustrations.

One Day of Design takes a comprehensive look at how the graphics that surround us play a part in our lives, and covers everything from alarm clocks and coffee makers to skateboards and computers. It demonstrates how graphics are the key to the personal relationships we have with everyday objects, and how design plays a major role in the "visual soundtrack" of life.

About the author:
Emil Kozak is from a small town in Denmark, and was inspired to take on graphic design as a result of his life long passion for skateboarding.

He began at an early age to develop his skills, inspired by skateboard-art and the result today is a unique artist with brilliant ideas. The style is fresh and positive, but often with a message that digs deeper. He is a master of composition and has an eye for detail, that is not seen very often. Typographic, clean lines and few colors is often how Emil Kozak's artwork is described. Yet, there is always an unexpected surprise: obscure references, playing with words, codes and hints.

Kozak is motivated by a simple goal that resonates throughout his work. "I hope that my work can remind us that imagination can defy gravity and bend time. It is our own responsibility to enjoy every second of the day. Nobody else can do that for us. Have fun, eat candy, do what you love, love what you do... We might get thrown off this spinning ball of iron and mantle tomorrow."

As a result his work has been exhibited widely all over the world and appeared in numerous magazines and books. He has produced design and artwork for clients such as Vans, Element, Graniph, Eastpak, Burton, Channel Islands, Nike, Lab Skateboards & Uniqlo.
