NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual Reissue

Remem­ber those fel­las who found an orig­i­nal copy of the NYC Tran­sit Author­ity Graphic Stan­dards Man­ual in the base­ment of Pen­ta­gram? Well, they’re part­ner­ing with the MTA to release a lim­ited run of man­ual through Kick­starter.

It won’t be exactly like the orig­i­nal man­ual. The orig­i­nal is ring bound in binder, but the reis­sue will fea­ture a cloth hard­cover and unal­tered high-resolution scans of each page of the man­ual, all Smyth sewn together. It will mea­sure 13.5” W × 13.5″ H (343 x 343 mm).There will be an intro­duc­tion by Michael Bierut, and an essay by New York mag­a­zine writer Christo­pher Bonanos.

The man­ual will be printed in Italy on 100 and 140 gsm Munken Pure ivory off­set paper. The cover, intro­duc­tion, and essay head­ings will be set in a cus­tom ver­sion of Stan­dard Medium by type designer Nick Sher­man, that he recre­ated from the pho­tographs of the orig­i­nal manual.

This is a great way to get this won­der­ful piece of design his­tory in the hands of more peo­ple. I’ve backed it.

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.

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.

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.

Fridolin Müller

Fridolin Müller

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.
