SAHRE, VICTORE, WILKER, AMAZING
GRAPHIC DESIGN I just came back from a week long design workshop held by Paul Sahre, James Victore, and Jan Wilker! I can definitely say that these guys are on the top of my “people with brilliant minds who are super nice” list. The things I learned from these guys might sound cliche but these lessons are put in a whole different perspective when it is taught by these great designers/people. James: Don’t change for anybody. Jan: Work hard and then work even harder. Paul: Speak up!
BORING x 7
BOOKS Zach, the author of Boring boring boring boring boring boring boring was so kind to let me take a look at his new book! What makes this book stand out amongst many others is its beautiful hybrid of typography and imagery. I absolutely enjoy how Zach has broken the strict typographic traditions of mass produced books and as a result, created a book that can also be called an art piece. The book contains atleast 100 different typefaces! I feel like a kid in a candyshop. *drooling* Get your copy now at Featherproof!
EXHIBITION I just received some really nicely designed invitations to upcoming exhibitions curated by CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts. The Wattis was established in 1998 in San Francisco at California College of the Arts and serves as a forum for the presentation and discussion of international contemporary art and curatorial practice.
ART Greg Lamarche has some awesome typographic collages. A lot of his vibrant work remind me of my all time favorite designer, Alan Fletcher.
