Milton Glaser & Mirko Ilic: Design of Dissent

Tonight in New York, revered graphic designer Milton Glaser (do a Google Images search if that name doesn’t ring a bell) will take part in a panel discussion with Mirko Ilic about the creation of powerful politically driven graphics. The event is hosted by Reality Sandwich creative director, Michael Robinson

This panel discussion features graphic design legend Milton Glaser and award winning designer/illustrator Mirko Ilic focusing on graphic design’s ability to convey how power is effectively used and distributed, and justice is fulfilled. Based upon Glaser and Mirko’s book The Design of Dissent: Socially and Politically Driven Graphics, the authors will discuss how today’s image makers and corporate shamans can use design to create the more beautiful and just world we all know is possible.

This event is co-sponsored with Evolver/Reality Sandwich. Hopefully they’ll put a videotape of the discussion online soon.

Thursday, January 26, 8–10pm at The Open Center, 22 E. 30th St., NY

Below, a delightful portrait of Milton Glaser by Hillman Curtis:

A new and as-always fun and functional project from New Orleans genius musician/inventor, Quintron. It’s really a beautiful idea, especially the rain drop trigger. In my perfect parallel universe every home would come equipped with this set of devices.
 

 
Thanks Stephen Fishman

Old Punk, Hardcore and Indie show flyers redesigned with clean Swiss art direction

New York-based Graphic designer Mike Joyce made a whole slew of super-clean versions of old punk, post-punk, hardcore and indie flyers which he appropriately titles “Swissted.” The concept comes from “his love of punk rock and Swiss modernism, two movements that have absolutely nothing to do with one another.”

Ray and Charles Eames: S-73

Now we know…it was those cigar-chomping traffic managers, with their difficulties over volume that led to the flat-pack sofa. Or, so it seems in this stylish film S-73 by designers, artists, and film-makers, Ray and Charles Eames. Interestingly this 1954 film shows the Herman Miller flat-pack sofa pre-dates Christian Gillis’s idea of ready-to-assemble furniture by 2 years, which would mean IKEA owes it all to Miller, and their team of designers, which included the Eames, George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, and Robert Propst, who gave us the “Noguchi Table,” “Eames Lounge Chair,” “Marshmallow Sofa,” “Ball Clock,” and Nelson’s own “Hang-It-All,” and the “Sling Sofa.”

If you spire to roll something more complicated than a braided joint, perhaps you may want to test your skills with the Scorpion Joint.

20-year-old Tokyo-based artist Mayuko of Tama Art University created this rather odd typeface using human leg hair.

I’m assuming it’s not hers.
