AGI Open London


AGI Open is a design and education conference featuring over 30 of the world’s leading graphic designers – all members of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI). This year the event is in London, so if you’re in the area, definitely check it out.

But what I want to mention here is their awesome Tumblr, which features some great work from legends like Müller-Brockmann, Crouwel, Hofmann, Harder, Kramer, and a ton more. I can stare at this site all day long.

Hans G. Conrad: HfG Ulm

AisleOne reader, René, was kind enough to write in to share his collection of photos taken by Hans G. Conrad, the first student at the Ulm School of Design / Hochschule für Gestaltung HfG Ulm. Conrad passed away several years ago, but before he did he gave René over 12,000 photos. About two years ago René began to upload the images to Flickr. A lot of really great photos already up there, like the one pictured here of Otl Aicher teaching a typography class. You’ll find a lot of other great design legends in the photos like Bayer, Eames and Bill.

What a great way of remembering such a historic school and influential designers.
