271 Year Old Color Guide

1692 Boogert Color Guide

1692 Boogert Color Guide

1692 Boogert Color Guide

This blew my mind.

“Traité des couleurs ser­vant à la pein­ture à l’eau” is an 800-page color guide, writ­ten in 1692 by an artist known as A. Boogert. The book describes and shows in detail how to use and mix col­ors. I can’t even begin to imag­ine how long this took to make, and the fact that the col­ors are still so vibrant is aston­ish­ing. This is a work of art, and I would bet that most of what is in this book is still rel­e­vant today.

It’s also great to see that Boogert was also edu­cated in grid sys­tems. Have a look at how those swatches are organized.

A hi-res gallery of the entire book is avail­able here

Interaction of Color App

Yale Uni­ver­sity Press has released an iPad app ver­sion of Josef Albers’s influ­en­tial book, Inter­ac­tion of Color. Designed by Potion, the app fea­tures archival video of Josef Albers in the stu­dio and class­room, videos of prac­tic­ing artists, design­ers, and archi­tects dis­cussing how they use color, and 63 fully inter­ac­tive plates.

Looks like it’s really well done. I’m look­ing for­ward to it.

Navy Signal Prints

navy-signal-prints

Lon­don designer, Hana Tan­imura, has cre­ated this beau­ti­ful set of prints based on the inter­na­tional mar­itime sig­nal flags. I’ve always loved the min­i­mal and geo­met­ric design of the sig­nal sys­tem, so it’s great to see them avail­able as high-quality prints.

Each flag is a Giclée print on 310gsm Hah­nemühle Ger­man Etch­ing paper, in an edi­tion of 20, each signed and num­bered. The prints are avail­able in A2, A3 and A4 sizes.

Sorry for the long silence. I was work­ing on a big pitch and it con­sumed all of my time. Back to reg­u­lar posting.

To start this week off, he’s a gor­geous annual report designed by Ser­vice plan for Aus­tria Solar. Lovely use of color and type.

Armin Hofmann—Farbe

Armin Hofmann Farbe

Armin Hof­mann — Farbe is an exhi­bi­tion at Galerie Susanna Kulli in Zurich that fea­tures a port­fo­lio of silkscreen prints where Hof­mann focused and played with color. The prints were cre­ated from 1989 to 1999, and they’re an inter­est­ing depar­ture from the work he’s famous for. If you’re in Zurich, this would be a great exhibit to see.

Bernard Cycling Kit

Bernard Cycling Kit

I’m a big fan of sports jer­seys of all types, and this Bernard cycling kit has to be the best look­ing one I’ve seen. Great use of color and type. It def­i­nitely stands out from the rest of kits I’ve seen. Most are just ter­ri­bly designed. I couldn’t find much info, but it seems to be a per­sonal cycling kit designed by Bran­don Sin­cock that was made avail­able for sale for a bit. Must have been a blast to design this. One of my dream jobs would be to work for a bicy­cle com­pany design­ing frame graphics.
