Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 12, 2006
The creativity and design of Robert Radi, an award-winning designer based in Beverly Hills, California, has been recognized in a new editorial project by Fusion Publishing (Los Angeles – Stuttgart). The beautifully executed book celebrates the inspired work of 61 pioneering designers who represent the new American generation.
In her introduction, Carissa Kowalski Dougherty explains that designers in The Americas -- including North, South and Central America -- are as diverse as the cultures within which they work.
“It is difficult to talk about them as one cohesive group; their passions, design strategies, and formal outcomes cannot be summed up in a simple mission statement, nor should they be,” says Dougherty. “The lack of a single, hegemonic style does not mean designers in The Americas are afraid to commit to an aesthetic ideal. Instead, it signifies a dedication to the nature of design and the restlessness of human creativity.”
Radi is featured in an eight-page spread with some of his most successful designs—including Personal Microdermabrasion and Consumer Electronics projects -- that have collectively generated more than $100 million in sales. The products highlighted demonstrate Radi’s attention to detail, his unique sense of styling, and his ability to come up with humorous, original concepts for household products.
Radi grew up in Northern Italy, borne into a rich tradition of design and invention within his family lineage. He moved to the United States some 15 years ago and has gone on to achieve considerable acclaim, winning in excess of a dozen design awards in the last four years alone.
Radi has designed products for mass and limited production for companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Disney, DermaNew, Paramount, Mattel, Revlon, Colgate, Toyota, Neutrogena, Avery Dennison, Aroma Houseware, and Berkshire Hathaway (GINSU Brand) -- to name a few.
In 2005, Robert Radi launched his Limited Edition Eyewear line. He is currently working with several of his high-profile clients on products that will be released in 2007.
