Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hands-on book design students and designers alike will welcome.Elements of Design is a tribute to an exceptional teacher and a study of the abstract visual relationships that were her lifelong pursuit. Rowena Reed Kiostellow taught industrial design at Pratt Institute for more than fifty years and the designers she trained-and the designers they're training today-have changed the face of American design. This succinct, instructive, invaluable book reconstructs the series of exercises that led Kostellow's students from the manipulation of simple forms to the creation of complex solutions to difficult design problems. It includes her exercises and commentary along with selected student solutions, and concludes with examples of work from former students who became leaders in the field, including such well-known figures as Tucker Viemeisater, Ralph Applebaum, Ted Muehling, and many others.

Book News Annotation:

Rowena Reed Kostellow (1900-1988) taught industrial design at Pratt Institute for some 50 years. Following a brief account of Kostellow's life, author and design journalist Gail Greet Hannah documents Kostellow's structured approach to the study of visual relationships, defining and illustrating the vocabulary and carefully sequenced exercises Kostellow used in the teaching of three-dimensional design. Because Kostellow did not leave a detailed written record of her principles and methods, this account draws on notes and conversations with those who taught and studied with her. It is illustrated with b&w and color photographs, much of it work done by students in classes she taught.
