Rudolph de Harak


Rudolph de Harak (1924-2002) was a legendary American graphic designer who is well-known for his book cover designs for McGraw-Hill during the 50s and 60s. A modernist at heart, de Harak also designed record covers for Columbia and Westminster, as well as these lovely clocks.

After some quick searching, I found this Flickr group dedicated to him.

The Rochester Institute of Technology has an excellent collection of posters and record covers designed by Jacqueline S. Casey, who worked as a graphic designer for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 1963 to 1990. Unfortunately Jacqueline Casey died in 1992 at the age of 65 but she has left and beautiful collection of designs that we can all admire and enjoy.

The work in this collection is absolutely brilliant. I love her simplicity and her play with typography.

A book was also created in 1992 to coincide with this collection called Posters: Jacqueline S. Casey, Thirty Years of Design at MIT. The book is wonderful and features full descriptions and color reproductions of her work. It’s very rare and almost impossible to find, trust me I’m still looking. If you’re lucky to find one be prepared to dropped $250 for it.
