For centuries, artists and designers have been creating communicative graphics. With the advent of new forms of media, the emergence of paradigms such as ubiquitous computing, and the rapid evolution of interaction devices, there is a continuous cycle of renewal of the technologies and methods to support artists, interaction designers and developers. Developingnewapproachesrequiresanunderstandingofthe fundamentals of perception and cognition as they relate to interaction and communication te- nologies, together with arti?cial intelligence and computer graphics techniques to automate reasoning and enhance cognition. Smart Graphics is in essence an interdisciplinary endeavor and brings together the ?elds of computer graphics, arti?cial intelligence, cognitive science, graphic design and ?ne art. The International Symposium on Smart Graphics 2008 was held on August 27–29 in Rennes, France. It was the ninth event in a series which originally started in 2000 as an American Association for Arti?cial Intelligence Spring Symposium and has taken place every year since then. Due to the high quality of the papers submitted this year, the ProgramCommittee decided to accept 17 fullpapers(insteadoftheusual15),9shortpapersand3systemdemonstrations. The acceptance rate for full papers was 34%. This year’s meeting included a discussion as to the nature of the shape, contentandfutureoftheevent.Representativesfromdi?erentcommunitieswere invitedtogivetheiropinions,andtheorganizingcommitteewouldliketowarmly thank them here. Such questions as the ongoing viability of the symposium and theconsequencesofco-locatingSmartGraphicswithotherlargerresearchevents led to interesting debates and have prepared the groundwork for what could be the future of the Smart Graphics conference series.

The Fashion Designer's Sketchbook

The Fashion Designer's Sketchbook is a must-have resource for both fashion students and practising designers who wish to learn new ways of generating design ideas in order to create successful fashion collections, and who wish to develop their own creative aesthetic. It demonstrates how the fashion design sketchbook serves as a crucial creative tool for professional development - and a valuable portfolio of design work to present to potential employers. This book identifies four distinct types of creative journal, each representing a different phase in the design process: the inspiration diary, the working journal, the presentation journal and the design log; and it explores how one develops out of the other, each stage in the idea generation process moving the process forward organically from discovery, to direction, to design development and delivery. The Fashion Designer's Sketchbook shows readers how to turn their sketchbooks into source books; how to generate design ideas from everyday experience; explores multiple ways of presenting and arranging elements within pages; details digital search and storage techniques as well as bulletin board journalling; and provides exercises to improve readers' illustration skills and enquiry, promoting in-store sketching and visual analysis to focus awareness of design aesthetics, taste levels and design vision. The book also explores the need to address market realities, consumer profiles and trend analysis, and shows how to build design collections based on target customer demographics and different markets. Beautifully illustrated and filled with a vast range of inspirational and full-colour design illustrations, The Fashion Designer's Sketchbook also features interviews with designers and industry experts. With a strong emphasis on exploratory design, this exciting resource provides readers with stimulating exercises designed to enable readers' sketchbook work and their creative vision to shine.

W.M. Thackeray's European Sketch Books

This copiously illustrated study focuses, for the first time in any language, on the whole range of Thackeray's verbal and graphic portraits and caricatures of European men, women and children of his own and earlier periods. It takes its readers on what he called a 'Roundabout Journey' in which they look, through the eyes of a variety of narrators and personae, at natives of France, Greece, Italy, Switzerland, the Habsburg Empire, Poland, Russia, Scandinavia, the Low Countries, Spain, Portugal, and Turkey. There are a few German examples too: but these are peripheral here, because the author has considered them in depth in a previous book: Breeches and Metaphysics. Thackeray's German Discourse. The contexts in which these portraits and caricatures are set include more or less ironized stereotypes and conventions; impressions of landscapes and townscapes; trade and diplomatic relations; European literature, drama, showmanship, journalism, music and many varieties of the pictorial arts. Some of the most memorable portrayals characterize past and present writers and artists through descriptive analyses of their work. Contemporary prejudices and received opinions relating to class, gender and nationality flow freely into such characterizations; but they are constantly relativized by the interposition of quirky narrators and a keen sense of the failings and snobberies of Britons observed at home and abroad. While reflecting his time in many ways, Thackeray's discourse also helped to shape it - and a close scrutiny of the European portraits here disengaged from his work should serve to enhance his stature as a shrewd and witty observer, a gifted portraitist and caricaturist with pen and pencil, and a powerful voice in Britain's ongoing conversation with her European neighbours.
