NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual Limited Reissue

NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual Reissue NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual Reissue NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual Reissue 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 Massimo Vignelli Grids 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.

World Cup Stamps 2014

World Cup Stamps World Cup Stamps 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.

Studio Iknoki

Studio Iknoki Studio Iknoki Studio Iknoki Studio Iknoki is an Italy based design studio by Christian Jugovac and Francesco Greguol. They've done some great work, but I'm nuts for the work they did for “Acqua e Territorio”, an exhibition and the conference curated by Latitude Platform. I love this very stripped-down style. They have more of their work on Behance.
