Connecting the Dots showcases the remarkable contribution of one designer, Garry Emery, to Australian culture internationally over 60+ years.
It publishes a selection of Emery’s writings, alongside notes he calls ‘ramblings’ as well as presenting EmeryStudio’s design work.
Connecting the Dots collects ad-hoc design thinking, comments, insights, thoughts, quotations, snippets, questions, answers, essays, articles, meditations, opinions, ambiguities, dogmas, observations, ideas, remnants, contradictions, realities, episodes, moments, fantasies, threads, traces, snapshots, ramblings, ruminations, not so many facts, no certainties.
'As this book shows, Emery’s work is much more than graphic design. It is the design of alphabets, pages, books, branding and websites, but also of walls, installations, exhibitions, furniture, rooms, postage stamps, car parks, building facades and busy streets. How do we read a page or a poster; how do we find our way around crowded, chaotic cities?' - James Button, writer and editor
