All Access takes a "before they were stars" look at twenty-five giants in the graphic design industry by juxtaposing an edited selection of the stars' greatest hits with their "pre-fame" work. Author Stefan Bucher showcases their visual history, the first pieces that made them stars, their transitional work, and the eventual breakthrough pieces that caused their names to be known around the world. Insightful text exploring mentors, education, and eureka moments complement this visual timeline illustrating the journey from struggling novice to master designer.

In addition to the twenty-five giants, Bucher also profiles twenty of the most exciting upcoming design stars from around the globe. As with the masters, Bucher explores their road to early success, and showcases the work that is currently lifting these young designers into the spotlight. These are their early days, yet the work they are producing is groundbreaking and inspiring.

Stefan G. Bucher is the Art Director of Pasadena-based 344 Design designing CD packages for Sting, Minority Report, The Matrix, Solar Twins, Whitney Houston, Alanis Morissette, S Club 7, and bossa:nova. In a land beyond CDs, he is responsible for the Roxio "Burning CD" logo, as well as for the five and a half pound annual American Photography 17 for which he received the 2002 D&AD Silver Award for "Most Outstanding Complete Book Design". His work has been recognized by AIGA, the Art Directors Club, the American Center for Design, the One Show, the Type Directors Club, HOW, Print, STEP, novum, and Communication Arts Magazine. He lives in Los Angeles.
