Neue Grafik

To say I’m excited about this would be an under­state­ment. Lars Müller Pub­lish­ers will be releas­ing reprints of all 18 issues of Neue Grafik. For those of you not famil­iar with Neue Grafik, it was an influ­en­tial jour­nal on graphic design pub­lished from 1958 – 1965 by Josef Müller-Brockmann, Richard Paul Lohse, Hans Neuburg and Carlo Vivarelli. It’s essen­tially the bible for the Inter­na­tional Typo­graphic Style. You can still get your hands on orig­i­nal copies, but a sin­gle issue can cost you a few hun­dred dollars.

This reprint col­lec­tion will include com­men­tary and is set to be released in Jan­u­ary 2014. I. Can’t. Wait.

Rolf Müller is a Ger­man designer who stud­ied with Josef Müller-Brockmann, and from 1967 – 72 he worked with Otl Aicher on the cor­po­rate design of the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. Stel­lar work. Def­i­nitely one of the greats.

Montreal Olympics Test Event Posters

Before the Olympics Games begin, the orga­niz­ing com­mit­tee has test events to pre­pare and rehearse things like trans­porta­tion, guest ser­vices, results/scoring, etc. The design teams also test things like print­ing and instal­la­tions, so they cre­ate an iden­tity dif­fer­ent from what they cre­ated for the real games. These are some of the posters cre­ated for these “test event” for the 1976 Mon­tréal games. I’ve never seen these before. What a gem.

Exper­i­men­tal Jet­set recently launched a new web­site with a ton of amaz­ing new work. One of the projects that stands out for me is the iden­tity work they did for the Whit­ney Museum of Amer­i­can Art in NYC. EJ devel­oped the graphic iden­tity, and Whitney’s in-house design team used the sys­tem to design all the pieces.

I’m going to have to visit the museum and grab as much printed stuff as I can. Looks stunning.

Flatmade’s story begins with a poster was cre­ated by John Massey for Con­tainer Cor­po­ra­tion of Amer­ica titled “chicago has a great lake”. They fell in love with the poster, and con­tacted Mr. Massey to print a new edi­tion of it, and he agreed. They now are pro­duc­ing other clas­sic mas­ter­pieces, which you can pur­chase directly from them. I’ll take one of each, please.
