Business Cards of Minimal Designers

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.

“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.

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.

World Cup Stamps

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.

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.
