is a hero of mine, and many others. This book available as a pdf looks great
What is instructive about this thin volume is the critical mass of inspiring ideas and off-hand comments forging a designer’s philosophy. In fact, in the section on “Philosophy” he said:
Design is a way of life, a point of view. It involves the whole complex of visual communications: talent, creative ability, manual skill, and technical knowledge. Aesthetics and economics, technology and psychology are intrinsically related to the process. (Graphis, 1981)
Only 500 copies of the keepsake were printed, given free to the symposium participants and sold through Emigre, among other limited venues (only a few rarities remain). Now, I would like to make it available to all via PDF. If you would like to download go here or here.
CR and Tate have created a tumblr to celebrate the upcoming Vorticism exhibition
Tate Britain and Creative Review are teaming up to mark the gallery’s new exhibition, The Vorticists: Manifesto for a Modern World.
Adopting the spirit of Blast, the art movement’s short-lived journal launched by Wyndham Lewis, we are inviting submissions on the themes of ‘Blast’ and ‘Bless’.
The best work will be projected at the next #crtweetup, which takes place at Tate Britain on July 21, while our favourite ‘Blast’ and ‘Bless’ will be turned into a double-sided print that will be unveiled on the night.
So what would you Blast or Bless about today? Upload your work here.

An Interview Without Words
Illustrator Shaun Tan Draws Conclusions
SPIEGEL: You once said that your stories often develop from little scribbles and that you create hundreds of these every year. What happens to all the sketches that don’t end up becoming part of one of your books?
The London poster campaign is specifically in support of Troy Davis, a man described as having “been on death row for 19 years in the USA, despite serious doubts about his conviction.”
The posters, depicting a close-up Davis’s face, are mounted on fence railings that disguise the posters so that the face behind the bars is revealed only when viewed from an angle.
The three posters are located at 4-7 Great Pulteney St, 21 Great Pulteney Street, and 5 Berners St (all W1). – Bill Tikos (via coolhunting)
