Everyday we see many pieces of design from logos to leaflets. Some are good others not so good. When you type a letter or put a PowerPoint together you are designing. You choose the font, size & you decide to use an image or not. So here are my top tips for designing.

SEA’s – Made in Italy book

Sea-aiap-fedrigoni-madeinitaly-itsnicethat-main

Europe has a fine graphic design tradition but certain countries – Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the UK – tend to predominate when it comes to coverage. And so we’re always keen to hear about initiatives that celebrate lesser known design scenes, such as SEA and Fedrigoni’s upcoming exploration of Italy’s graphics heritage. Made In Italy showcases post-war Italian graphic design by way of a show in east London and a series of monographs focussing on some of the most interesting practitioners – Ilio Negri, Heinz Waibl, Franco Grignani and Giancarlo Iliprandi. With amazing access to the Aiap archives in Milan, SEA has also put together a book for the show with the explicit aim of putting this “untapped” subject firmly in the spotlight.

12 day of Chocolate: A Designer Collection

Now this is something I want for Christmas?

Every year Chase Design Group creates a holiday gift to share with clients. For 2013, they hit upon the idea of doing a chocolate gift. A humorous riff on the “12 Days of Christmas” seemed like the perfect way to feature Chase’s inventive design and Clear Image’s outstanding printing.

Each wrapper features a different aspect of the design process from frayed nerves to a perfect proof. Every designer at Chase got a chance to design their own wrapper both inside and out (please view below each individual design credits). Each design uniquely conveys the hectic and often humorous experience of working as a designer.1_7_13_12DaysofChocolate_2.jpg1_7_13_12DaysofChocolate_5.jpg1_7_13_12DaysofChocolate_9.jpg

Playing Cards that Explore 4 Distinct Moments in Art and Design History

ArtAndMachine_RH_Website_032317“This deck of cards is a look at four specific moments in the history of art and design as it has wrestled to incorporate machine technology (or push against it). Each suit in the deck focuses on one of these four moments—the new typography of the Bauhaus era, mid-century book cover design, the late 20th century silk-screened poster aesthetic, and contemporary art & design in the age of mobile.”ArtAndMachine_RH_Website_032317ArtAndMachine_RH_Website_032317ArtAndMachine_RH_Website_032317
