A/ I really need everyone on the East Coast to go see this.
B/ “Co-organized by Andrew Blauvelt of the Walker Art Center and Ellen Lupton of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Graphic Design—Now in Production is the single largest exhibition of contemporary graphic design to take place in the United States in over 15 years.”
C/ Imagine being tasked (BY THE WALKER!!) to create an identity system and exhibit space for this. No big deal right?
Project Projects does it, again. They continue to create beautiful, meaningful, time-sensitive but also timeless work that strikes by simplicity and conceptual strength, by printed matter and exhibition design. Just incredible (and rad).
Doyald Young is an award winning true master in the field of logotype and typeface design. He’s a soft-spoken, gentle man with the patience and detail required to be one of the true few leaders and teachers. All of his work starts from a humble combination of pencil, paper and time. Stacks and stacks of exploration later, a unique solution emerges on the paper. Legibility, perfection of form, and timeless execution are his mantras.
Definitely take a moment to check out the video above to hear it straight from the man himself, and if you have a lynda.com account, you can watch the full 40-min feature, which is truly inspiring. If you don’t have access to lynda.com, you can check out a great interview with Young conducted by lettercult (and lots more examples of his work). After you’re done with all that, you can join me in lusting for his 3-book collection.
