feeling good and feeling bad. feeling good: chicago designer, wayne stuetzer, sends me an image he cherishes unsolicited: a josef m-b card given to him by the Man himself. my response is a [ paul rand business card ] post. i pinned the above image under [ classic/retro design ]
josef müller-brockmann | the graphic artist and his design problems | 1961 [ more ]
paul rand | a designer’s art | 1985 [ more ]
feeling bad: just finished summer intermediate typography course covering genres including “swiss” and did not bring the (above) books to class. feeling good: the “swiss” spreads (below) from a 32-page book each student printed.
designer | grace gondela
designer | sean leary
almost forgot. feeling good: wayne’s response to the p-rand post is “Link it to Paul Rand’s card and the comment by the unfortunate soul who felt it was somehow too plain for a famous designer.” [ your business card sucks ] [ joseph müller-brockmann ] [ paul rand ]
