"When everybody zigs, zag," says Marty Neumeier in this fresh view of brand strategy. ZAG follows the ultra-clear "whiteboard overview" style of the author鈥檚 first book, THE BRAND GAP, but drills deeper into the question of how brands can harness the power of differentiation. The author argues that in an extremely cluttered marketplace, traditional differentiation is no longer enough鈥攖oday companies need 鈥渞adical differentiation鈥?to create lasting value for their shareholders and customers. In an entertaining 3-hour read you鈥檒l learn:<br /> <br />- why me-too brands are doomed to fail<br />- how to "read" customer feedback on new products and messages<br />- the 17 steps for designing 鈥渄ifference鈥?into your brand<br />- how to turn your brand鈥檚 鈥渙nliness鈥?into a 鈥渢rueline鈥?to drive synergy<br />- the secrets of naming products, services, and companies<br />- the four deadly dangers faced by brand portfolios<br />- how to 鈥渟tretch鈥?your brand without breaking it<br />- how to succeed at all three stages of the competition cycle<br /> <br />From the back cover:<br />In an age of me-too products and instant communications, keeping up with the competition is no longer a winning strategy. Today you have to out-position, out-maneuver, and out-design the competition. The new rule? When everybody zigs, zag. In his first book, THE BRAND GAP, Neumeier showed companies how to bridge the distance between business strategy and design. In ZAG, he illustrates the number-one strategy of high-performance brands鈥攔adical differentiation.<br /> <br /> <i>ZAG </i>is an AIGA Design Press book, published under Peachpit's New Riders imprint in partnership with AIGA.

<p><i>An Introduction to Computer Graphics for Artists</i> is an application-independent, reader-friendly primer for anyone with a serious desire to understand 3D Computer Graphics. Written by a veteran of the computer graphics industry whose previous career included film animation and various spells as Art Director for video games, Andrew Paquette draws on his experiences both as an artist and a manager. Far too often artists, even professionals, lack a basic understanding of the principles of computer graphics. The result is inefficiency and lower quality of work. This book addresses these issues by providing fundamental information in a university course format, with theoretical material, detailed illustrations, and projects to test the reader鈥檚 understanding of the concepts covered.</p><p>Opening with the first and most basic elements of computer graphics, the book rapidly advances into progressively more complex concepts. Each of the elements, however simple, are important to understand because each is an essential link in a chain that allows an artist to master any computer graphics application. With this accomplished, the artist can use technology to satisfy his goals, instead of the technology being master of the artist.</p><p>All students wanting to learn more about computer graphics from an artistic viewpoint, particularly those intending to pursue a career in computer game design or film animation, will find this book invaluable.</p>
