LOOK BOTH WAYS

BOOKS I was fortunate enough to take part in an honors workshop held by Debbie Millman at the Academy of Art, San Francisco. It was a delight working with her in person. She will be showing the original pieces that make up her new book, Look Both Ways in an exhibit at the Academy of Art sometime in late winter. I’ll post a reminder later on. So, if you get a chance, definitely try and check out Look Both Ways. It’s a delightful collection of designed essays that takes us into her world of graphic design, art, love, brands, music, life, Levi’s, and much much more.

I HEART BOOKS

BOOKS I was thrilled this morning to receive a large package of books from Princeton Architectural Press this morning. Indie Publishing and Typeface: Classic Typography for Contemporary Design are great books for students new to Graphic Design. The Handy Book of Artistic Printing is a collection of beautiful letterpress examples of type and ornamentation. I recommend that book to those who adore ephemera. And last but not least, I recommend There’s Nothing Funny About Design to anyone who considered themselves as a creative. I’m a sucker for visuals and rarely have time to sit down and read a book. I’m currently half way through this book and I really encourage designers to read about design instead of always looking at pretty pictures.
