The modern yearning for vintage and classical design work is well-documented in Retro Graphics, an in-depth exploration of diverse applications of retro elements in modern graphic design. The first section, Evolution of Graphic Style, provides a deeper level of understanding of cultural connotations and context in design with explanations of movements, trends and styles through the 1840s to the 1990s. The second section, Retro Design, then reveals how designers capture the zeitgeist of an era and express it through modern media and design methods with a showcase of projects such as food and alcohol packaging, wedding programs, promotional materials, business identities, and more. Masterful retro design evokes the best part of a time or era, inspiring a sense of nostalgia in viewers or consumers not for what really was, but for what ideally could have been; Retro Graphics will show both design enthusiasts and professionals exactly how this can be done.
This practical guide provides more than 150 recipes to help you generate high-quality graphs quickly, without having to comb through all the details of R´s graphing systems. Each recipe tackles a specific problem with a solution you can apply to your own project, and includes a discussion of how and why the recipe works. Most of the recipes use the ggplot2 package, a powerful and flexible way to make graphs in R. If you have a basic understanding of the R language, you´re ready to get started. Use R´s default graphics for quick exploration of data Create a variety of bar graphs, line graphs, and scatter plots Summarize data distributions with histograms, density curves, box plots, and other examples Provide annotations to help viewers interpret data Control the overall appearance of graphics Render data groups alongside each other for easy comparison Use colors in plots Create network graphs, heat maps, and 3D scatter plots Structure data for graphing
