Coast Modern & Build — Live Through Architecture Not For It

Build Coast Modern Poster

To kick­off the UK launch of the doc­u­men­tary film Coast Mod­ern the film­mak­ers invited Build to exhibit a series of prints designed exclu­sively for the event. Build designed the poster above for the show, that will take place at Mead Car­ney gallery in Lon­don. The A1 poster is a two color screen print on Lus­tralux 215gsm paper, and printed by K2 Screen.

The exhibit will also fea­ture a very lim­ited set of 5 typo­graphic prints, each with a word or state­ment taken directly from the film.

The film­mak­ers and the Build team will be at the show, and the film will be screened on Sat­ur­day 14th June at 4pm. The prints will be avail­able for pur­chase at the shop, and on Build’s shop.

Vignelli: Oppositions

Oppositions

Mas­simo Vignelli is known for many pieces of work that are now famous, like the Amer­i­can Air­lines logo, the Stendig Cal­en­dar, and the NYC Sub­way Map. But one of my favorites works of his is the design for Oppo­si­tions. I’ve writ­ten about it before. It was an archi­tec­tural jour­nal pub­lished from 1973 to 1984, and it’s an excel­lent dis­play of bal­ance, com­po­si­tion, and hierarchy.

I fig­ured this is the per­fect time to remem­ber this piece of work.

You can view cov­ers and spreads of the pub­li­ca­tion on Flicker.

Massimo Vignelli 1931-2014

Massimo Vignelli

Mas­simo Vignelli passed away this morn­ing. I can’t even begin to explain how much of an influ­ence he was on me. I wouldn’t know half of what I know about design if it weren’t for him. I will con­tinue to learn from Mas­simo for years to come. He will be missed, but his work will live on for generations.

Riposi in pace, Massimo.

RTL Nieuws Redesign

RTL Nieuws is The Nether­lands’ lead­ing com­mer­cial news net­work, and it recently received a redesign by Mark Porter Asso­ciates, Smörgås­bord stu­dio, and John Beck­ers, with on-air visu­als by Uni­ver­sal Every­thing.

The redesign touches every aspect of the orga­ni­za­tion, from their dig­i­tal plat­forms to the audio sound­track. Over­all, it’s really well done. The brand­ing is very min­i­mal and uses bold typog­ra­phy, iconog­ra­phy and col­ors to tell the story. The type­face used in the redesign is a cus­tomer ver­sion of Grafik by Com­mer­i­cal Type. The sim­ple aes­thetic really shines on live broad­casts where you don’t get dis­tracted with a ton of visual info. The focus remains on the pre­sen­ters and the infor­ma­tion being communicated.

The excel­lent case study video above does a great job of show­ing off the new identity.
