Editorial business, Arkivia Books,developing books for those that are occupied in its previous creative field and have to produce ideas that satisfy the market. ARKIVIA BOOKS is a series of Tendency Books and is the result of years of creative research for artists, stylists and graphic designers.
WHAT IS ARKIVIA BOOKS?
ARKIVIA BOOKS is a series of Tendency Books and is the result of years of creative research for artists, stylists and graphic designers.
Every book contains CDs or DVD of all the designs inside the book.
These designs can be used freely by all those who buy these books in accordance with the copyright terms mentioned in each book.
They are in different formats :
Vectorial and Bitmap files accessible by all graphic softwares in Windows or Mac like Illustrator, CorelDraw or Photoshop.
For those who work as designers of product lines in various trade sectors, one of the most important jobs is to determine the look that the line should have to attract clients and distinguish itself from others.
Research is fundamental, before any design can be made, research using books, magazines, samples of objects found all over the world. This results in a large quantity of ideas on which marketing works before starting to develop one of them.
A long and expensive process to reach the development of the designs, keeping in mind the production methods.
Arkivia Books has inserted into the books these kinds of knowhow:
1 - Research into a tendency theme.
2 - Development of creative ideas that illustrate it.
3 - Professional artworks for immediate production with that look.
WHO FINDS ARKIVIA BOOKS USEFUL?
1 - Those who create products every day and need to document a single theme suitable to the product.
2 - Companies that with a small amount of money, very low compared with the high costs of creative studios, can access material ready to be used and developed by their internal staff.
In the recent past, Tendency Books have been produced for a restricted club of professional people who could afford the high cost of this sort of book (around 1000/1500 euros).
Arkivia Books has decided to create books with the same spirit but within the reach of any professional in image.
As expensive as a good quality book but no more than is accepted in bookshops.
THESE ARE THE PLUS OF ARKIVIA BOOKS
1 - A precise target, that is professionals in image.
2 - Tendency books at the price of a normal book.
3 - A single theme developed with hundreds of designs, timeless and always valid.
4 - Professional modifiable files included with the books in DVD or CD.
5 - Freedom of use of the designs by the buyer, especially for commercial use.
6 - Thousands of books sold to Opinion Leaders in Fashion Fairs which testifies to their quality.
Camouflaging itself and hiding from the eyes of others is certainly the opposite of what fashion is.
Rather it is to be seen, recognized and distinguished from others to express taste and personality.
However the fashion of CAMOUFLAGE makes this contradiction not real since fashion digests and encompasses everything and use decorations that the army or hunters are using to hide.
Abstract Camouflage Texture Design Book serves only to show the spirit of adventure and outdoor. I thought it would be useful to overcome these typical decorations of camouflage, used and seen too much, by developing more creative and abstract designs that produce the same effect but at the same time are new. This is the purpose of this collection.
Never a look was so well suited to its target, in this case the male, as that of "Outdoor" in its various facets, from Navy to Country Look, from Travel to Sport. In the case of "Country Look" with the elegant variant made of Clubs and Riding or with the rustic variant made of Hunting, Fishing Contests and Walks in the Woods you can create an atmosphere of chic and comfortable fashion with noble materials and natural colours. Thus the male marks his territory and shows his best qualities of strength and confidence, naturalness and tradition. An idea developed in the 80s it is now back in fashion to give certainty, solidity, classical values in which he takes refuge, not seeing a secure future and wanting to take inspiration from a prosperous past. A new idea of classic that as then we can call "Classic Nouveau".
Outdoor Style Vol 02 Navy Prints & Patterns
Never a look was so well suited to its target, in this case the male, as that of „Outdoor“ in its various facets, from Navy to Country Look, from Travel to Sport. When nostalgia is tinged with BLUE and you feel the need of its psychological certainties the Navy returns. An ever-living look, made of classic atmospheres but also sportsmanship. The variations are countless moving from the world of navigation, see the idea of the sailor and the sea voyage, to the Yacht Clubs with their symbols and their flags. Besides fishing, swimming, from the underwater world to nature and ecology with fish, shells, algae or distant beaches. Timeless symbols, so easy to wear and live in.
Provençal looks like a country style, simple and refined. Light and colorful as suspended gardens between the blue sky and the blue sea. Provencal textile art is linked to particular designs and colours that are well suited to furnishings created to better feel the sunny atmosphere of southern France where everything gives the feeling of good weather. And they are mostly white and blue, blue and yellow, but also red and green. Lines of flowers and geometries with black contours on strong and clear backgrounds or squares and small flowers with slight shades of blue or purple immersed in white to give freshness. This gives us joy to live and also gives us elegance, how can we resist it?
"Flowers" is an exclusive design book consisting of 318 vector flowers and 100 hand painted aquarelle flower drawings.
These basic elements are meant to be used for graphics, embroideries, new designs, for filling with hotfix elements or improving existing pattern.
