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 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.

Album Anatomy

Album Anatomy Album Anatomy Album Anatomy Album Anatomy is a personal project by Duane Dalton where he explores the imagery of some of his favorite albums. He started the project in 2011 and it's now up to 70 designs.
An exploration in the art of reduction. This personal project breaks down album imagery into its purist form by discarding any unnecessary information.This is achieved using a strict grid that displays the relevant album details, which leaves a central void to convey a response to the album. This void is filled by my personal response to an album. It can be influenced by the cover art, a key track or the overall flavour of the album. The chosen albums have had an influential and personal impact on me. It is music I listen to over and over again or more excitingly rediscover.
