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.

Club Céramique Poster

Club Ceramique Experimental Jetset

This is a poster designed by the awe­some folks at Exper­i­ment Jet­set for an exhi­bi­tion titled “Club Céramique” by NAiM/Bureau Europa. I love how The Jet mixes in pho­tog­ra­phy with type.

Neue Haas Grotesk

Neue Haas Grotesk

Font Bureau has cre­ated this won­der­ful mini-site all about the excel­lent type­face Neue Haas Grotesk. It explains the his­tory of the face, along with a nice sec­tion on its fea­tures and what makes it dif­fer­ent from Hel­vetica. An instant valu­able resource.

Typographic Revolt

Typographic revolt

The folks at Hype­ForType approached graphic designer Ryan Atkin­son to pro­duce their first mag­a­zine, Typo­graphic Revolt. The mag acts as a show­case for their type­face col­lec­tion and is A2 sized with a twist. Instead of fol­low­ing the tra­di­tional con­ven­tion, Ryan designed a quick read through A2 mag­a­zine which also dou­bles up as a set of 4 Exclu­sive Faces posters. Each page folds out to cre­ate a dou­ble sided poster per­fect for your stu­dio or home wall space. Typo­graphic Revolt is printed as a lim­ited litho run on 90gsm wood free paper, giv­ing every­thing a pre­mium news­pa­per feel which absorbs the inks to cre­ate a beau­ti­ful desat­u­rated look and feel.

Typo­graphic Revolt is avail­able now through Ama­zon.

I love these cov­ers designed in 1959 by Yves Zim­mer­mann for Typografis­che Monats­blät­ter. Set in Akzi­denz Grotesk, these cov­ers remind me of another TM cover designed by Robert Büch­ler. A poster was also printed of these won­der­ful design.

Def­i­nitely check out the full arti­cle on Dis­play for more details on these beauties.

Tom Carnase

Tom Carnase

Tom Car­nase has cre­ated some of the most iconic logo­types for Brooks Broth­ers, Saks Fifth Avenue and Calvin Klein, just to name a few. He also worked along side Herb Lubalin and helped him cre­ate the pop­u­lar Avant Garde type­face. Some of his let­ter­ing work is dis­played here, but I rec­om­mend that you do a Google search to see all of his great pieces.

I’m super excited about this exclu­sive AisleOne fea­ture. The fine folks at Process have released a spe­cial edi­tion pub­li­ca­tion titled: Process 4.5.

Printed in only black on light­weight 70gsm Bond, Process 4.5 pur­posely con­trasts the usual high pro­duc­tion qual­i­ties of the quar­terly jour­nal, as well act­ing as a plat­form to exper­i­ment with dif­fer­ent for­mats and pro­duc­tion tech­niques. The publication’s con­tent is a reflec­tion and ret­ro­spec­tive of the first four edi­tions of Process Journal.

Con­sist­ing of three major parts, the first a com­pre­hen­sive essay writ­ten by typog­ra­pher and design-lecturer Brad Hay­lock. The sec­ond a typo­graphic analy­sis of each of the type­faces fea­tured in edi­tions one to four, includ­ing type sam­ples and spec­i­mens.

Josef Brockmann Opernhaus Zurich

Just when you’ve thought you’ve seen it all, you stum­ble across some­thing like this Swiss site con­tain­ing a MASSIVE amount of work from leg­endary design­ers like Brock­mann, Ruder, Bill, Hof­mann, Stankowski, Rüegg, Lohse, Huber, Tschi­chold and more. This is the moth­er­load folks.

It just goes to show how pro­lific these design­ers were, espe­cially Brock­mann. I thought I’ve seen most of his work, but this site con­tains many designs that I’ve never seen, like the one pic­tured here. It’s like redis­cov­er­ing him all over again. Not sure how he was able to get all the work com­pleted. I can’t imag­ine ever pro­duc­ing this amount of work in my life­time. Amazing.
