A quick weekend post.

Uwe Loesch is a German designer born in 1943 in Dresden, Germany, and studied graphic design at the Peter-Behrens Academy in Duesseldorf. He’s a member of AGI — Alliance Graphique Internationale and has a collection at the MoMA. Most of his work focuses on poster design, and he’s done some great work.
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.
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.
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.
Great poster series here by NYC based designer, Joseph Han. The posters are for “Ferran Adrià: Notes On Creativity”, an event on Interbrand’s Design Tour 2014, curated out-of-office excursions to design-centered destinations in New York City. The poster series uses the plate, an intrinsic part of Adrià’s food presentation, as a dynamic, ever-changing graphic device.
The B2 poster is screen printed in silver onto Ebony Colorplan and is supplied with a metallic pen, allowing fans to record the results. The website features the full tournament schedule and you can customize it for your team and time zone. It will also updated with results as the throughout the tournament.
Beautiful, simple way to following the World Cup.
Last night, while looking through my copy of Neue Grafik/New Graphic Design/Graphisme actual, I discovered the wonderful work of Rosmarie Tissi. She was born in Switzerland, then studied design in Zürich, and has been a member of AGI since 1974. In 1968, she formed O&T studio with Siegfried Odermatt.
