Ken Briggs

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.

The Encounter Collection

This short film by Process Cre­ative for fur­ni­ture and bag designer Stephen Kenn is just per­fect. It’s beau­ti­fully shot and the story is very emo­tional. It really high­lights how an object can carry so much his­tory and sentiment.

Hey folks, sorry for the long silence. I got a kid­ney stone, and I was out of com­mis­sion for a week. Feel­ing bet­ter now, so the posts will resume. Back to business.

Lars Müller Pub­lish­ers is releas­ing two new books as part of their won­der­ful A5 series. I’ve been wait­ing for these titles every since I heard about them in early fall.

The first is A5/06: HfG Ulm by René Spitz that cov­ers the his­tory of The Ulm School of Design founded by Inge Aicher-Scholl, Otl Aicher and Max Bill.

The sec­ond book is A5/07: Rolf Müller, a mono­graph ded­i­cated to Rolf Müller who worked with Otl Aicher on the visual iden­tity of the Munich Olympic Games in 1972.

Both books will be avail­able at the end of this month.

Argentina 78′ World Cup Poster

Argentina 78′ World Cup Poster

Totally for­got about this poster until some folks on Twit­ter reminded me about it. Beau­ti­ful work, but no info on who designed it. Argentina was going through a dark time then, so any info on it was prob­a­bly lost. A shame.

30 Years of Swiss Typographic Discourse in the Typografische Monatsblätter

Lars Müller Pub­lish­ers is really killing it this year with all these great titles. The just released title 30 Years of Swiss Typo­graphic Dis­course in the Typografis­che Monats­blät­ter explores the influ­en­tial design jour­nal Typografis­che Monats­blät­ter from 1960 – 90. The book includes works from design­ers such as Emil Ruder, Hel­mut Schmid, Wolf­gang Wein­gart, Hans-Rudolf Lutz, Jost Hochuli and many others.

Def­i­nitely a must-have for any design­ers library.

sys­tems is an exhi­bi­tion of com­mis­sioned poster designs and ‘60s Braun prod­ucts, that is curated by das pro­gramm and pro­duced in asso­ci­a­tion with Braun.

Thirty-four lead­ing graphic design­ers and stu­dios were invited to pro­duce a poster design on the theme of Braun sys­tems design. The list of con­trib­u­tors includes Exper­i­men­tal Jet­set, Spin, Bib­lio­thèque, Derek Kim, Neubau, almost Mod­ern, Hey, Lundgren+Lindqvist and many more. I’ve also been asked to con­tribute, which is a great honor for me to be included in such an amaz­ing group of designers.

I also designed the offi­cial web­site, which is hosted here on A1. We will be adding six new designs every­day, so be sure to check back.

The exhibit will take place from Nov. 25 – Dec. 31 at the Wal­ter Knoll show­room in Lon­don. The works will also be avail­able for pur­chase as a lim­ited edi­tion of A1 prints, indi­vid­u­ally or as a cased set.

I’m very excited to be a part of this great exhibit, and I wish I could expe­ri­ence it in per­son. Def­i­nitely check it out if you’re in the area. More info below.
