Hey folks, I’ve been out of town for the last few weeks, which is why it’s been quiet around here. But I’m back and the posts will be back on a regular schedule.
Timeless: Massimo Vignelli is an exhibition curated by design studio Husmee, and Beatriz Cifuentes and Yoshiki Waterhouse, that honors the work of Massimo Vignelli. It’s open now until April 18, 2015 at the Okendo Cultural Centre in San Sebastián, Spain.
The exhibition includes original work from Vignelli and a series of posters designed by a select group of designers and design studios, that include Atlas, Toko, BVD, Hey Studio, Mash Creative, and Spin.
The lovely poster above was designed by Mash Creative.
For all you lucky folks in the UK, there’s going to be a lecture tonight with Wim Crouwel. I’d love to go to this. Someone needs to get this guy to NYC! Anyway, here are the details:
The International Society of Typographic Designers is pleased to announce the return or their acclaimed lecture series. The first of which on the 3 June will be Wim Crouwel. The Dutch legend will be introduced by 8vo’s Hamish Muir, who will talk about the studio’s work that was commissioned by Crouwel when he was director of the Museum Boymans-van Beuningen (1989 — 1994).
Crouwel’s lecture, Designer and Client, will take place at the The Royal College of Physicians’ Wolfson Lecture Theatre, 11 St Andrews Place, Regent’s Park, London NW1 4LE (19.00 — 21.30).
Tickets are limited, likely to sell out quickly and are only available in advance from istd.org.uk/wim-crouwel. £16 (£12 for ISTD members, £10 for students)
Attendees will be invited to celebrate the ISTD’s 80th birthday with a complimentary drink in the Dorchester Library after the lecture.
Tickets also include entry to a raffle for the chance to win a very special prize which will be presented by Crouwel himself.
