16 April 2015 — The Heart Index



We took part in a very nice charity publication that raises money for Heart Research UK, The Heart Index. Craig Atkinson from SEA Design asked over 70 international Designer to illustrate a heart. Sounds simple but the variety is amazing. Among the contributors are many friends and some all time design heroes such as Lance Wyman and Wim Crouwel. You can buy the book here. All proceeds will be donated to Heart Research UK.

15 March 2015 — 100 Years of Graphic Design



Went to see the 100 Years of Graphic Design exhibition at currently homeless Kemistry Gallery. Maybe the title promises more than it can fulfil and a for truly representative show of 100 Years Graphic Design history you have to hire the whole of the V&A, but I enjoyed the selection and you have to appreciate what this guys are doing for the Design Community.

Sometimes I like to show interesting work by my students here and this is most definitely a good one. In my course 'Porn Rules' Tobias Textor developed a font you can speed up. As faster it gets as more readable it becomes. The font is part of the virtual Freiland exhibition. (posted by Holger)
