    "For hundreds of years new artistic styles have been established through aesthetic upheaval -- as the initial repugnance for now seminal works such as Picasso's The Young Ladies of Avignon or Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring demonstrate. But while art was allowed to be ugly, design had to function. Trends in graphic design and visuaa communication were until very recently, all variations on what was generally considered to be appealing. It is only in the last few years that those working in applied creative disciplines started to rebel." .. "Against this backgound, Pretty Ugly is a diverse collection of recent aesthetic rampages by the trailblazers of tomorrow's design. The variety of examples in fields range from graphic design and visual communication to product design, furniture, art, and photography makes clear that creative leadership in today's design world is less a matter of skilled craft and more about mastering elements that give one's work a unique visual identity. The unusual or negatviely perceived forms, colors, and perspectives shown here may still be considered by some to be ugly, but they are already influencing the creative vanguard of the future."--BOOK JACKET.
