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.

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.

Rosmarie Tissi

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.

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.

Unit Edi­tions just announced a new book titled Man­u­als 1 Design & Iden­tity Guide­lines. It’s a study of cor­po­rate iden­tity design man­u­als from the 1960s to early 1980s. The book includes man­u­als cre­ated for NASA, Lufthansa, British Steel, NYC Tran­sit Author­ity, Cana­dian Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion, ABC, and more. The ABC man­ual is from my col­lec­tion that I’ve contributed.

I’ve been really look­ing for­ward to this book. Man­u­als are such a great learn­ing resources because they’re not only great to look at, but they also give you insight into the ratio­nale and think­ing behind each sys­tem. You get to expe­ri­ence what the design­ers were thinking.

The fore­word was writ­ten by Mas­simo Vignelli and the book includes text from Adrian Shaugh­nessy, NASA designer Richard Danne, Greg D’Onofrio and Patri­cia Belen of Dis­play, Armin Vit, Sean Perkins and John Lloyd.

Avail­able in March and you can pre-order now.
