If you’re in London in the next week or so be sure to catch the Retrospective—One exhibit at Kemistry Gallery. I’d love to see what Experimental Jetset created. I wish they had an inline gallery.
Kemistry Gallery has asked eleven previous exhibitors to create pieces to celebrate four years exhibiting outstanding graphic design and illustration. With a lineup that speaks for itself, Retrospective—One is bringing together Experimental Jetset, Eine, James Joyce, Parra and Geoff McFetridge among others in a line up of graphic design all-stars. Pieces include hand-drawn typography, one-off collages, lightboxes, print editions, and objects showcasing the breadth of graphic design both as a communication form and as a aesthetic skill.
A Blu-ray version of the Helvetivca documentary has been announced today. This limited-edition versions comes in a 12″ gatefold record cover created by amazingly talented Experimental Jetset. It contains the Blu-ray disc on one side and a fold-out poster in the other, all housed in a custom black cloth record bag. 1,500 copies have been produced and each copy is signed by director Gary Hustwit.
This thing is freakin’ gorgeous! I want one so bad but the price is a little steep, $125. You can pre-order it now and it will ship on May 6th. There’s also a standard Blu-ray version that’s only $26.
Now I have to explain to my wife why I’m spending $125 on a DVD.

I’ve been searching endlessly for this catalogue designed by Experimental Jetset, featuring the work of Ellsworth Kelly, but I haven’t had any luck in finding it. If anyone knows where I can purchase it or if you have an extra copy, shoot me an email and I’ll be indebted to you forever.
