Last night, while looking through my copy of Neue Grafik/New Graphic Design/Graphisme actual, I discovered the wonderful work of Rosmarie Tissi. She was born in Switzerland, then studied design in Zürich, and has been a member of AGI since 1974. In 1968, she formed O&T studio with Siegfried Odermatt.
I really love how she blends the swiss style, with a more abstract style using a lot of geometric shapes. You can see more of her work here, here, here, here and here.
Derek Kim AKA Network Osaka recently launched a new site with a some great new work. I’m a big fan.
The unofficial site of Italian designer and architect, AG Fronzoni, recently launched. A lot of great content on here including his work, articles, philosophy and quotes.
Lovely brochure cover design for a Bauer Selecton film projector.

I haven’t posted about Artiva in a while, and was happy to see a bunch of new work on their site. They definitely have a specific look nailed.
Ken Briggs was a British graphic designer best known for the excellent poster and programs that he designed for the The National Theatre in London during the 60s and 70s. Some of these wonderful designs are pictured here. He was the companies first graphic designer, his work has had a huge influence on the theatre’s design, even to this day.
Sadly, he passed away recently. We’re left with a collection of work that is legendary.
Eye Magazine has written an article in his honor. The National Theatre also honored him on their Tumblr. They mentioned that The NT Archive took in Ken Briggs’ collection, and you can visit it by contacting them. If I ever make it to London, I’m definitely checking this out.
They’ve also digitized all of their posters, which can be viewed here.
And lastly, In 2009, Occasional Papers published The Master Builder: Talking with Ken Briggs that details a conversation between Sara De Bondt, Fraser Muggeridge and Ken Briggs. The book also includes a lot of his work, but it seems to be out of print.
