Lubalin Now will be a new exhibit in the re-located Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography. I’m looking forward to this!
Herb Lubalin (1918–1981) is best known for his wildly illustrative typography and his groundbreaking work for the magazines Avant Garde, Eros, and Fact. On view will be recent posters, publications and motion graphics by internationally recognized graphic designers that spotlight an emerging trend toward expressive lettering and typography. Original sketches, magazines, logotypes, and posters selected from the Lubalin Center Archive will illuminate Herb Lubalin’s influence on contemporary graphic design. Featured artists include Herb Lubalin, Justin Thomas Kay, Non-Format, Matt Owens, Alex Trochut, Post Typography and many more.

If you’re in London in the next week or so be sure to catch the Retrospective—One exhibit at Kemistry Gallery. I’d love to see what Experimental Jetset created. I wish they had an inline gallery.
Kemistry Gallery has asked eleven previous exhibitors to create pieces to celebrate four years exhibiting outstanding graphic design and illustration. With a lineup that speaks for itself, Retrospective—One is bringing together Experimental Jetset, Eine, James Joyce, Parra and Geoff McFetridge among others in a line up of graphic design all-stars. Pieces include hand-drawn typography, one-off collages, lightboxes, print editions, and objects showcasing the breadth of graphic design both as a communication form and as a aesthetic skill.
