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.

World Cup Stamps

I freakin’ love these World Cup Stamps designed by Por­tuguese stu­dio, Maan. Unfor­tu­nately, it’s just a self-project. I’d buy the entire set if they were for sale. They also design some pack­ag­ing around it, and they put together a Tum­blr to show­case all the stamps.

Fridolin Müller

Fridolin Müller

Fridolin Müller (1926 – 2006) was a Swiss graphic designer, edi­tor, and teacher who stud­ied at The Basel School of Design. He designed the poster pic­tured above in 1963 for the Eidg. Schützen­fest Zürich (Swiss Fed­eral Marks­man Fes­ti­val). One of my favorites. Saw one in per­son once, it’s huge.

You can seem more of his work here, here, and here.

Studio Iknoki

Stu­dio Iknoki is an Italy based design stu­dio by Chris­t­ian Jugo­vac and Francesco Greguol. They’ve done some great work, but I’m nuts for the work they did for “Acqua e Ter­ri­to­rio”, an exhi­bi­tion and the con­fer­ence curated by Lat­i­tude Plat­form. I love this very stripped-down style.

They have more of their work on Behance.

P.A.R is a design stu­dio based in Barcelona made up of Iris Tar­raga & Lucía Cas­tro. I love their work, and their aes­thetic. I really really love the brand­ing work they did for the Insti­tuto Lati­noamer­i­cano de Estu­dios Uni­ver­si­tar­ios a Dis­tan­cia. So perfect.

Great poster series here by NYC based designer, Joseph Han. The posters are for “Fer­ran Adrià: Notes On Cre­ativ­ity”, an event on Interbrand’s Design Tour 2014, curated out-of-office excur­sions to design-centered des­ti­na­tions in New York City. The poster series uses the plate, an intrin­sic part of Adrià’s food pre­sen­ta­tion, as a dynamic, ever-changing graphic device.

World Cup Karoshi

Lon­don based multi-disciplinary design con­sul­tancy Karoshi cre­ated this wall chart and site to help you keep track of the World Cup.

The B2 poster is screen printed in sil­ver onto Ebony Col­or­plan and is sup­plied with a metal­lic pen, allow­ing fans to record the results. The web­site fea­tures the full tour­na­ment sched­ule and you can cus­tomize it for your team and time zone. It will also updated with results as the through­out the tournament.

Beau­ti­ful, sim­ple way to fol­low­ing the World Cup.

Last night, while look­ing through my copy of Neue Grafik/New Graphic Design/Graphisme actual, I dis­cov­ered the won­der­ful work of Ros­marie Tissi. She was born in Switzer­land, then stud­ied design in Zürich, and has been a mem­ber of AGI since 1974. In 1968, she formed O&T stu­dio with Siegfried Odermatt.

I really love how she blends the swiss style, with a more abstract style using a lot of geo­met­ric shapes. You can see more of her work here, here, here, here and here.

271 Year Old Color Guide

1692 Boogert Color Guide

1692 Boogert Color Guide

1692 Boogert Color Guide

This blew my mind.

“Traité des couleurs ser­vant à la pein­ture à l’eau” is an 800-page color guide, writ­ten in 1692 by an artist known as A. Boogert. The book describes and shows in detail how to use and mix col­ors. I can’t even begin to imag­ine how long this took to make, and the fact that the col­ors are still so vibrant is aston­ish­ing. This is a work of art, and I would bet that most of what is in this book is still rel­e­vant today.

It’s also great to see that Boogert was also edu­cated in grid sys­tems. Have a look at how those swatches are organized.

A hi-res gallery of the entire book is avail­able here

I haven’t posted about Artiva in a while, and was happy to see a bunch of new work on their site. They def­i­nitely have a spe­cific look nailed.
