Drool. The folks at Container List posted some photos of a PBS Identity Manual created by Chermayeff & Geismar back in 1984. The manual is part of the Milton Glaser Design Study Center and Archives at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. I wonder if non SVA folks can get access to the archives. Would love to study this manual in person.
I’ve been very lucky to finally find a copy of the Graphics Manual for the 1976 Montréal Olympics, which is my personal favorite Olympic identity. I’m a little obsessed with collection pieces from these games. I particularly fond of graphics manuals like this because they provide a window into the the thinking and process behind the identity system. It’s the closest you get to having the designer explain the system, in this case Georges Huel and Pierre-Yves Pelletier.
