Cartografias. Virgin America Boarding Pass. 6 Questions For Tom Geismar, Illustrious Designer Of PBS, Xerox, And Mobil Logos. Since leaving the Army in 1957 to cofound a graphic design firm at a time when graphic design as an industry barely existed, Tom Geismar has created more than 100 corporate identities.
Many have universally recognizable logos--as partner at Brownjohn, Chermayeff, & Geismar (now Chermayeff & Geismar, and Haviv), Geismar oversaw the designs for PBS, Xerox, Chase Bank, National Geographic, and Mobil. And he's an equally prolific exhibit designer, having worked for the likes of the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, the Statue of Liberty Museum, and the Smithsonian. Now 83 and still working in the now thriving graphics industry, Geismar is being honored with a retrospective at New York’s School of Visual Arts. The 26th annual Masters Series showcases work from Geismar's more than six-decade-long career--from early student sketches and hand-set type to famous logos to lesser known designs for birthday cards, posters, and book covers.
LaFraise: Online Graphic T-Shirt Design Contest for Cool & Funny Shirts. Is Flat Design Already Passé? Over the last few years, we've seen an upheaval in the way computer interfaces are designed.
Skeuomorphism is out, and flat is in. But have we gone too far? Perhaps we've taken the skeuomorphic death hunts as far as they can go, and it's high time we usher in a new era of post-flat digital design. Ever since the original Macintosh redefined the way we interact with computers by creating a virtual desktop, computer interfaces have largely been skeuomorphic by mimicking the look of real-world objects.
In the beginning, computer displays were limited in resolution and color, so the goal was to make computer interfaces look as realistic as possible. But skeuomorphism didn't make sense once photo-realistic computer displays became ubiquitous. This is why Jony Ive took over the design of Apple's iOS and OS X operating systems and began a relentless purge of the numerous skeuomorphic design elements that his predecessor, skeuomaniac Scott Forstall, created.

When it comes to surfing the web, the condition can make it impossible to understand the infinite influx of videos, images, and charts. Animesh Tripathi, a 17-year-old high school student in India, is trying to change that. While other teenagers experimented with poor life choices, Tripathi spent the last two years experimenting with algorithms that allow color schemes online to be adjusted to accommodate the needs of the color blind.
This Twitter Logo Redesign Takes Simplicity Too Far. First launched in 2010, Twitter's icon--a cheery blue bird--has become an important part of the micro-blogging service's visual identity.
At a time when pretty much every aspect of digital design is shifting toward flatter, more abstract designs, Italian designer Roberto Manzari has released a proposal to vastly simplify the Twitter logo by reducing it to just a few geometric shapes. But is such a vastly simplified logo really right for Twitter's brand? "The main idea of this logo is simplicity," says Manzari on his Behance page.
"As Twitter simplifies our ways of communicating, this logo reflects the value of Twitter giving it a recognizable and strong identity.

Flat design casts a long shadow. Whilst many designers embrace flat design wholeheartedly, it seems a growing number have already tired of its charms and are casting around for the next big thing.
One contender, being championed by some, is “long shadow” design. Long shadow design produces an effect like looking at an object late on a Winter’s day, when the shadows lengthen to dramatic proportions. The effect adds a great deal of depth while still retaining an essentially flat aesthetic. Typified by a 45 degree shadow that extends well beyond the length of a traditional drop shadow, the diagonal lines are reminiscent of early Soviet posters and collages by the likes of Malevich — produced before Socialist Realism became the only acceptable style.

Deconstruir. Condiments Give Spankings In Eye-Popping Italian Ad Campaign. Italian diners have been very, very naughty.
Milan-based advertising agency Alch1m1a Adv has created a three-ad series entitled "Gioni’s Revenge," in which Gioni condiments go all 50 Shades on us. The sauces and dressings are personified as dispensers of punishment. There’s "Don’t Spank His Bottom Again" for brown sauce, "Did You Spank His Mom’s Bottom" for ketchup. And "Learn To Squeeze Her" for salad dressing, (known in Italy as salad "cream"). But unless you actually have a condiment fetish and dream of being spanked by your ketchup, you probably won’t want to squirt Gioni’s on your burger after you’ve seen these ads. Infographic: The Intricate Anatomy Of UX Design. We toss around the term “user experience” (UX) a lot, mostly as a shorthand for something like “where industrial design meets interface design.”
But to be perfectly honest, that tendency does this branch of design very little justice. The Disciplines of User Experience Design is a mega Venn diagram by Dan Saffer (given a pretty makeover by Thomas Gläser) that explores all of the overlap between UX and other fields of design.

Meet A Modern-Day Master Of The Classic Neon Sign. Neon lights are a sirens’ call, brightly advertising the likes of strip clubs, used cars and everything in between; Todd Sanders was captivated by the signs themselves as a boy growing up in Hunstville, Texas.
Later, he began his creative career as a graphic designer and helped pay his way through college hand-painting signs (also experiencing a renaissance of sorts), but 20 years ago, a fateful trip to Austin, that iconoclastic hub of weird, gave him the nudge he needed to pursue his lifelong dream of mastering the noble gas. “I apprenticed at [custom sign makers] Ion Art, but my real education came from finding the old masters of the '40s and '50s who were still around,” Sanders tells Co.Design.

The Forty Story. Pentagram Rebrands Cigarettes, to Make Deadliness a Virtue. Yesterday, President Obama signed new legislation that aims to make the marketing of cigarettes more difficult than ever--and the law has some provisions that would affect graphic designers, such as a mandate that print ads be in black and white, rather than color. So the St. Petersburg Times asked Pentagram partner DJ Stout to redesign the cigarette package, in light of these changes. What he produced is meant to appeal to smokers, while also turning off others. Stout says that to pull that off, tobacco companies could embrace tobacco's deadly effects: "Over the years there has been an onslaught of public awarenessmessaging about the evils of smoking. "Our marketing advice to cigarette companies in the new heavilyregulated era is to fully accept the new aggressive anti-smokingrestrictions and wallow in the government's apocalyptic healthwarnings.
But is that even possible? 9 Big Ideas That Changed The Face Of Graphic Design. What makes for good graphic design? You’ve probably formed your own opinions on the subject as you’ve looked through countless books, magazines, posters, and signage. And chances are you’ve also begun to recognize certain patterns: diagonal lines lend a certain dynamism to a page, typography can be readable or illegible, a layout can honor or obliterate white space. But how did graphic design develop into what it is today? Fortunately, there are people like Steven Heller to pinpoint the big-bang ideas that led to the standards we take for granted.
In 100 Ideas That Changed Graphic Design (Laurence King), he and Véronique Vienne identify, define, and illustrate the breakthrough moments that continue to inform contemporary visual conventions. When the authors began to compile their list, they made sure to focus on the big-bang ideas rather than “tropes or conceits--as in stylistic manifestations rather than substantive design foundations.” Regulamentação das profissões de Designer e Designer de Interiores: um "mal" necessário?
