Hi-Response

Hi-Response, a truly mod­u­lar Word­Press theme. ↪ v.1.3 out now! Theme options and a highly mod­u­lar lay­out sys­tem really sets a new stan­dard. Shape the theme (with­out the need to code) with 3 page/post lay­out mod­ule gen­er­a­tors, 5 tax­on­omy list­ing styles and theme options to con­trol pretty much every­thing from lay­out, col­ors, typog­ra­phy and inter­ac­tion. This enables you to tweak and stand out. We like to call it a fresh take on Word­Press publishing.

Business Cards of Minimal Designers

Brockmann Rand Business Cards

I found this image while surf­ing around this morn­ing. Don’t know about authen­tic­ity, but sup­pos­edly, these are the busi­ness cards of Josef Müller-Brockmann, Paul Rand, Adrian Frutiger and Hel­mut Schmid. I’ve seen the Paul Rand card before, so that one could be legit. Either way, these are lovely. The Frutiger card is def­i­nitely the least functional.

Update: Michael Bierut con­firmed on Twit­ter that the Rand and Müller-Brockmann are the real deal.

Dot Zero – Issue 1

Dot Zero Issue 1

Dot Zero Issue 1

Dot Zero was a quar­terly by Uni­mark in part­ner­ship with Finch Paper that focused on the the­ory and prac­tice of visual com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Only five issues were pub­lished between 1966 and 1968, and Mas­simo Vignelli was the designer and cre­ative direc­tor of the mag­a­zine. Vignelli wanted to make the design excit­ing, but sim­ple, so he set all type in only two weights of Hel­vetica and every­thing printed in black and white.

Michael Bierut inter­viewed Vignelli about the mag­a­zine. Some nice insights on how the pub­li­ca­tion came about, and its production.

The folks at Ratio­nale Design have made avail­able a hi-res PDF of issue 1 of Dot Zero, and you can see some pho­tos of issue 2 here.

Massimo Vignelli Grids

“Grids: Their Mean­ing and Use for Fed­eral Design­ers” is a book based on a pre­sen­ta­tion given by Mas­simo Vignelli at a sem­i­nar for fed­eral graphic design­ers at the Illi­nois Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy on Novem­ber 10, 1976.

He cov­ers the basics of grid design, then shows how grids were used in some of the projects that he worked on. It’s a nice lit­tle read. Hi-res scan of the entire book is avail­able here.
