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.
A great identity system for interior design studio Hecker Guthier, by Cornwell. The combo of textures, elegant type and distressing make it perfect.
I’m back from a short break and I hope everyone in the US had a great Thanksgiving.
To start the week back up we have this really nice stationery done by FEB Design for themselves.
I’ve been a fan of Designunit’s work for a while now. This Denmark based agency was founded by Majbritt and Jesper Johansen and focuses on fashion brands. I love their typography drive aesthetic.
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.
Beautiful packaging and identity design by Atipus for Fruita Blanch. Great color and typography give the identity a certain character.
