The best end-of-semester thank you card ever! #thankyou #graphicdesignhistory #typography

Well, this graphic artist is now working at a tool & die shop. Here’s one of the great mid-century logos I ran into on one of my errands. I’m not quite at the level of finding hidden vintage type treatments like @thetypehunter but hey, it’s fun keeping an eye out for these hidden industrial gems.

Composition 9
I started this year to explore illustration and it’s been a wild ride already. One thing keeps leading to the next, that first step is always worth it!⚡️

PAUL RAND. Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, describing Rand: “He is a painter, lecturer, industrial designer, [and] advertising artist who draws his knowledge and creativeness from the resources of this country. He is an idealist and a realist, using the language of the poet and businessman. He thinks in terms of need and function. He is able to analyze his problems but his fantasy is boundless.” Paul Rand is one of the most famous and recognized American designers of the 20th Century. His ideas, philosophies and approach continue to be a large part of the fundamentals of design taught in education programs across the world. His early career was spent working for Apparel Arts and Esquire magazines and then joining the Weintraub agency. He was so successful that after a few years he demanded twice the pay for half the time, and got it. His relentless passion for corporate identity helped shape the American business landscape in the 1960s. The height of corporate identity design owed much to the unwavering pursuit of Paul Rand to make advertising more than just billboards. He worked in the field until the day that he died, at the age of 82.

ART NOUVEAU. Art Nouveau was an artistic movement which peaked in popularity between 1890 and 1905 which was practiced in the fields of art, architecture and applied art. It is a French term meaning “new art” and is characterized by organic and plant motifs as well as other highly stylized forms. The organic forms often took the form of sudden violent curves which were often referenced by the term whiplash. Its short success was a reaction against the late 19th-century academic art and was replaced by the development of 20th-century modernist styles. Relative to graphic design it was popular in book production and poster printing, although it was used by artists for a variety of other types of work including advertisements, magazines, labels and typography. The typography was so heavily ornate that it was not desirable for text faces but great for display work.

🌝 missread에서 읽으려고 샀지만 다 읽을수 있을지는 알 수 없는 요놈. 일단 조금 읽었지만 재밌고(아마 다 좋을거같고..?). 마치 범스가 말하는 듯한 문장이 많음... 👀/ ... "As designers we have to continuously shift the past and the present so that the things that remain on the top are important ones, and the things that shift down are the gravel. We obviously want the golden nuggets at the top." ... (Massimo Vignelli, 1983) #graphicdesignhistory #inthewriting #occasionalpapers
