Making and Breaking the Grid

Working designers and students alike will find this book a valuable reference, as well as a source of inspiration for new approaches to laying out their projects.

Making and Breaking the Grid

The first section, Making the Grid, begins with an exposition of basic grid types, illustrating and defining the most common ones used in traditional design work. A selection of relevant projects shows how these grids organize information appropriate to each application and can provide a framework for composition. The second part of the book, Breaking the Grid, focuses on designs that challenge grid-based notions of organization. A brief discussion addressing the breaking down of structure is followed by a second set of relevant projects - this time, showing the grid reworked or discarded in favor of alternative compositional approaches. Working designers and students alike will find this book a valuable reference, as well as a source of inspiration for new approaches to laying out their projects.

Textiles  Identity and Innovation  In Touch

D_Tex is proposed as a hub around which it is possible to look at textiles in their different forms, in order to better understand, study, adapt and project them for the future. It is intended to build a flow of ideas and concepts so that participants can arrive at new ideas and concepts and work them in their own way, adapting them to their objectives and research. D_Tex is intended as a space for sharing and building knowledge around textile material in order to propose new understandings and explorations. Present in all areas of knowledge, the textile material bets on renewed social readings and its evolutions to constantly reinvent itself and enable innovative cultural and aesthetic dimensions and unexpected applications to solve questions and promote new knowledge. D_Tex proposes to promote discussion and knowledge in the different areas where textiles, with all their characteristics, can ensure an important contribution, combining material and immaterial knowledge, innovative and traditional techniques, technological and innovative materials and methods, but also new organization and service models, different concepts and views on teaching. With the renewed idea of the intrinsic interdisciplinarity of design and sharing with different areas that support each other, the research and practice of textiles was proposed by the D_TEX Textile Design Conference 2019, held June 19-21, 2019 at the Lisbon School of Architecture of the University of Lisbon, Portugal under the theme "In Touch" where, as broadly understood as possible, different areas of textiles were regarded as needing to keep in touch with each other and end users in order to promote and share the best they can offer for the welfare of their users and consumers.

Design Elements

The graphic design equivalent to Strunk & White's The Elements of Style This book is simply the most compact and lucid handbook available outlining the basic principles of layout, typography, color usage, and space. Being a creative designer is often about coming up with unique design solutions. Unfortunately, when the basic rules of design are ignored in an effort to be distinctive, design becomes useless. In language, a departure from the rules is only appreciated as great literature if recognition of the rules underlies the text. Graphic design is a "visual language," and brilliance is recognized in designers whose work seems to break all the rules, yet communicates its messages clearly. This book is a fun and accessible handbook that presents the fundamentals of design in lists, tips, brief text, and examples. Chapters include Graphic Design: What It Is; What Are They and What Do They Do?; 20 Basic Rules of Good Design; Form and Space-The Basics; Color Fundamentals; Choosing and Using Type; The World of Imagery; Putting it All Together?Essential Layout Concepts; The Right Design Choices: 20 Reminders for Working Designers; and Breaking the Rules: When and Why to Challenge all the Rules of this Book.

IBM TS7700 Release 5 1 Guide

This IBM® Redbooks® publication covers IBM TS7700 R5.1. The IBM TS7700 is part of a family of IBM Enterprise tape products. This book is intended for system architects and storage administrators who want to integrate their storage systems for optimal operation. Building on over 20 years of virtual tape experience, the TS7770 supports the ability to store virtual tape volumes in an object store. The TS7700 supported off loading to physical tape for over two decades. Off loading to physical tape behind a TS7700 is utilized by hundreds of organizations around the world. By using the same hierarchical storage techniques, the TS7700 (TS7770 and TS7760) can also off load to object storage. Because object storage is cloud-based and accessible from different regions, the TS7700 Cloud Storage Tier support essentially allows the cloud to be an extension of the grid. As of this writing, the TS7700C supports the ability to off load to IBM Cloud® Object Storage and Amazon S3. This publication explains features and concepts that are specific to the IBM TS7700 as of release R5.1. The R5.1 microcode level provides IBM TS7700 Cloud Storage Tier enhancements, IBM DS8000® Object Storage enhancements, Management Interface dual control security, and other smaller enhancements. The R5.1 microcode level can be installed on the IBM TS7770 and IBM TS7760 models only. TS7700 provides tape virtualization for the IBM z environment. Tape virtualization can help satisfy the following requirements in a data processing environment: Improved reliability and resiliency Reduction in the time that is needed for the backup and restore process Reduction of services downtime that is caused by physical tape drive and library outages Reduction in cost, time, and complexity by moving primary workloads to virtual tape Increased efficient procedures for managing daily batch, backup, recall, and restore processing On-premises and off-premises object store cloud storage support as an alternative to physical tape for archive and disaster recovery New and existing capabilities of the TS7700 5.1 include the following highlights: Eight-way Grid Cloud, which consists of up to three generations of TS7700 Synchronous and asynchronous replication Full AES256 encryption for replication data that is in-flight and at-rest Tight integration with IBM Z and DFSMS policy management Optional target for DS8000 Transparent Cloud Tier using DFSMS DS8000 Object Store AES256 in-flight encryption and compression Optional Cloud Storage Tier support for archive and disaster recovery 16 Gb IBM FICON® throughput up to 5 GBps per TS7700 cluster IBM Z hosts view up to 3,968 common devices per TS7700 grid Grid access to all data independent of where it exists TS7770 Cache On-demand feature that is based capacity licensing TS7770 support of SSD within the VED server The TS7700T writes data by policy to physical tape through attachment to high-capacity, high-performance IBM TS1150, and IBM TS1140 tape drives that are installed in an IBM TS4500 or TS3500 tape library. The TS7770 models are based on high-performance and redundant IBM POWER9TM technology. They provide improved performance for most IBM Z tape workloads when compared to the previous generations of IBM TS7700.
