Hi-Response, a truly modular WordPress theme. ↪ v.1.3 out now! Theme options and a highly modular layout system really sets a new standard. Shape the theme (without the need to code) with 3 page/post layout module generators, 5 taxonomy listing styles and theme options to control pretty much everything from layout, colors, typography and interaction. This enables you to tweak and stand out. We like to call it a fresh take on WordPress publishing.

Business Cards of Minimal Designers http://www.aisleone.net/2014/design/business-cards-of-minimal-designers/ http://www.aisleone.net/2014/design/business-cards-of-minimal-designers/#comments Fri, 08 Aug 2014 14:26:59 +0000 http://www.aisleone.net/?p=6024 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 http://www.aisleone.net/2014/design/dot-zero-issue-1/ http://www.aisleone.net/2014/design/dot-zero-issue-1/#comments Tue, 05 Aug 2014 15:55:56 +0000 http://www.aisleone.net/?p=6015 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.

Massimo Vignelli Grids

“Grids: Their Meaning and Use for Federal Designers” is a book based on a presentation given by Massimo Vignelli at a seminar for federal graphic designers at the Illinois Institute of Technology on November 10, 1976.

He covers the basics of grid design, then shows how grids were used in some of the projects that he worked on. It’s a nice little read. Hi-res scan of the entire book is available here.
