Here is another small design stu­dio based out of Lon­don, that’s pro­duc­ing amaz­ing work. Socio’s work is sim­ply stun­ning. Not a sin­gle piece is sub­par, and the level of detail that went into every project is astonishing.

This is the kind of work that you look at and makes you think “man, I suck!”. It def­i­nitely made me feel that way, dammit! But that’s a good thing. I think every once in awhile we all need some­one or some­thing to let us think that we suck. It motivates.

Unit Edi­tions just announced a new book titled Man­u­als 1 Design & Iden­tity Guide­lines. It’s a study of cor­po­rate iden­tity design man­u­als from the 1960s to early 1980s. The book includes man­u­als cre­ated for NASA, Lufthansa, British Steel, NYC Tran­sit Author­ity, Cana­dian Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion, ABC, and more. The ABC man­ual is from my col­lec­tion that I’ve contributed.

I’ve been really look­ing for­ward to this book. Man­u­als are such a great learn­ing resources because they’re not only great to look at, but they also give you insight into the ratio­nale and think­ing behind each sys­tem. You get to expe­ri­ence what the design­ers were thinking.

The fore­word was writ­ten by Mas­simo Vignelli and the book includes text from Adrian Shaugh­nessy, NASA designer Richard Danne, Greg D’Onofrio and Patri­cia Belen of Dis­play, Armin Vit, Sean Perkins and John Lloyd.

Avail­able in March and you can pre-order now.

Ken Briggs was a British graphic designer best known for the excel­lent poster and pro­grams that he designed for the The National The­atre in Lon­don dur­ing the 60s and 70s. Some of these won­der­ful designs are pic­tured here. He was the com­pa­nies first graphic designer, his work has had a huge influ­ence on the theatre’s design, even to this day.

Sadly, he passed away recently. We’re left with a col­lec­tion of work that is legendary.

Eye Mag­a­zine has writ­ten an arti­cle in his honor. The National The­atre also hon­ored him on their Tum­blr. They men­tioned that The NT Archive took in Ken Briggs’ col­lec­tion, and you can visit it by con­tact­ing them. If I ever make it to Lon­don, I’m def­i­nitely check­ing this out.

They’ve also dig­i­tized all of their posters, which can be viewed here.

And lastly, In 2009, Occa­sional Papers pub­lished The Mas­ter Builder: Talk­ing with Ken Briggs that details a con­ver­sa­tion between Sara De Bondt, Fraser Mug­geridge and Ken Briggs. The book also includes a lot of his work, but it seems to be out of print.
