Karim Rashid Biography
It's a Karim Rashid world, we just happen to live in it. Actually you could probably say the same thing about Starck. Either way, at the tender age of 40, he's got global name recognition. In fact his name is on everything from garbage cans to Madison Avenue newsracks to music, and it's associated with most of the biggest brands in the design world. It's more than 200 products, 2 restaurants, 3 hotels, and 2 CD compilations. (See the extended post for a selection of what Karim's been up to lately.) You'd think that with all he's doing now there wouldn't be enough Karim to go around... think again. It's all good. There's a handful of recent Karim books available. Compact Design Portfolio (shown) is published by Chronicle, one of my favorite imprints, so though I haven't seen it, I trust. Hardcover, 96 pages, 75 color and b/w photos, $9.71 at Amazon.
