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.

I love this sta­tionery and pack­ag­ing design for Inven­tory Mag­a­zine. It was designed by Inventory’s Art & Design Direc­tor Anthony Hooper. The combo of black, white, kraft and the serif type­face give it an ele­gant and crafted look.

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.

Massimo Vignelli 1931-2014

Massimo Vignelli

Mas­simo Vignelli passed away this morn­ing. I can’t even begin to explain how much of an influ­ence he was on me. I wouldn’t know half of what I know about design if it weren’t for him. I will con­tinue to learn from Mas­simo for years to come. He will be missed, but his work will live on for generations.

Riposi in pace, Massimo.

Bentley: Intelligent Details

Intel­li­gent Details is a short doc­u­men­tary film that fea­tures Luc Don­ck­er­wolke and SangYup Lee, heads of design at Bent­ley Motors, talk­ing about the Bent­ley Mul­sanne.

What’s really inter­est­ing about the film is that it was com­pletely shot using an iPhone 5s, and edited on an iPad Air mounted inside the Mul­sanne. The end of the film seems more like an Apple ad than one for Bentley.

The films is proof that con­sumer prod­ucts like an iPhone and iPad can be used to cre­ate pro­fes­sional qual­ity con­tent. Granted, they used some expen­sive gear with the iPhone to achieve a lot of the results, but you can still get close to this with just an iPhone.

RTL Nieuws Redesign

RTL Nieuws is The Nether­lands’ lead­ing com­mer­cial news net­work, and it recently received a redesign by Mark Porter Asso­ciates, Smörgås­bord stu­dio, and John Beck­ers, with on-air visu­als by Uni­ver­sal Every­thing.

The redesign touches every aspect of the orga­ni­za­tion, from their dig­i­tal plat­forms to the audio sound­track. Over­all, it’s really well done. The brand­ing is very min­i­mal and uses bold typog­ra­phy, iconog­ra­phy and col­ors to tell the story. The type­face used in the redesign is a cus­tomer ver­sion of Grafik by Com­mer­i­cal Type. The sim­ple aes­thetic really shines on live broad­casts where you don’t get dis­tracted with a ton of visual info. The focus remains on the pre­sen­ters and the infor­ma­tion being communicated.

The excel­lent case study video above does a great job of show­ing off the new identity.
