Grids: Their Meaning and Use for Federal Designers

Massimo Vignelli Grids

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.

Eich­ler Homes was a com­pany, by vision­ary Joseph Eich­ler, that built over 11,000 Mid-Century mod­ern homes in Cal­i­for­nia between 1950 and 1974. Eich­ler was respon­si­ble for bring­ing mod­ern archi­tec­ture to middle-class Amer­i­cans. Eich­ler Homes com­mis­sioned some of the most promi­nent mod­ern archi­tects of the time includ­ing Anshen & Allen, Claude Oak­land & Asso­ciates, Jones & Emmons, A. Quincy Jones, and Raphael Soriano.

The pho­tos above were taken by Dar­ren Bradley and are part of a col­lec­tion of Eich­ler Homes that he’s pho­tographed. Also, be sure to check out his other Flickr collections.

Hi-Response

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.

Album Anatomy

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.

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.
