Monday, September 5th, 2011

We’re putting together an installation for a Creative Time Project called Living as Form (more info at http://creativetime.org/programs/archive/2011/livingasform/about.htm). The show opens on September 24th at the Historic Essex Street Market in Manhattan, and it runs for 4 weeks. We’re creating a teen-aged warehouse hangout, and will be hosting events by KillScreen Magazine and the Copenhagen Game Collective, music by  “The Brutalist School” AKA Hsi-Chang Lin, more music by Georgia and a participatory dance performance organized by Joanna Quigley of Free Movement Specialists, INC.

The Drawbridge Quarterly

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

Recently I received the first copy of my new subscription to Drawbridge Quarterly. This intriguing newspaper is published in London. I love its informal and loose (in a good way) editorial that is packaged in a great looking and well designed format. As you can see here, the creative director Steven Coates takes excellent advantage of large, full color photographs and clean, restrained typography. Find out more here: www.thedrawbridge.org.uk

The Vignelli Canon

“Whatever we do, if not understood, fails to communicate and is wasted effort. We design things which we think are semantically correct and syntactically consistent but if, at the point of fruition, no one understands the result, or the meaning of all that effort, the entire work is useless.” – Massimo Vignelli
