Black and white are not colors, but a philosophy. In the words of designer Fons Hickman “There is nothing more multifaceted than black and white, the rest is merely colorful.” And a list of contemporary designers gives credence to this statement with visuals that powerfully portray the tension of figure versus ground.
Black & White Graphics(1)
Why would a designer chose to limit her pallette to one color? Designers and firms such as Jennifer Sterling, Ed Fella, Stefan Sagmeister, Plazm, Tomato, Planet Pixel and Shepard Fairey answer this question with explosive results.

A diverse selection of works including Dean Karr’s dark and disturbing art direction and photography for Marilyn Manson, Stephen Farrell’s beautifully conceived book design and the graphic novel stylings of Benjamin Güdel boldly illustrate the power of black and white.
