GRAPHIC DESIGN So apparently the design concept that will be chosen for the London 2012 Olympics will be selected randomly. I think it’s just an easy way out for the organizers. How can they believe that there will be good design if they don’t appreciate the hard work behind it. I guess they’re just running out of time. They’ve got a lot to work on to outdo China’s 2008 Olympics.

ART Peter Saville found these “In course of arrangement” signs at museums really interesting and has turned that into a piece of art in itself. I think it’s awesome that graphic designers are able to do work in both the design and fine arts field. It’s always interesting to see what a graphic designer can bring to the table.

RANDOM THOUGHTS The campaign that Shepard Fairey has done for Saks Fifth Avenue is live. Check it out. The campaign and their brand feels like two completely different entities. I don’t think Saks is Avant Garde enough to rock this campaign.
