LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

ART Eriko Yamada is a very talented illustrator who has been working on a set of silkscreen prints based on Japanese mythology. We took a silkscreen class together and I must say she is extremely detailed and patient. Each print consists of probably 50 runs!

PETER ARNELL

DESIGN NEWS I just read an article about Peter Arnell, the person behind Pepsi and Tropicana’s rebranding in this month’s I.D. magazine.

I have no idea how I’d be able to handle it if I were in his shoes.
