I wasn’t really looking to become a graphic designer and in fact I wasn’t – until the ripe old age of 26! David Carson – intervista a designboom.com. Shining the spotlight on Canadian design - The Creative Edge. In honor of Canada Day, we thought we’d take a moment to celebrate Canadian design, both historical and contemporary.

Shining the spotlight on Canadian design - The Creative Edge

We’re all familiar with the US 20th century design greats—Saul Bass, Milton Glaser, etc. —but Canadian designers from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, of equal artistic stature, remain obscure to many of us. If you want the full history of Canadian design, look no further than this article from the Canadian Encyclopedia, which covers everything from early 19th century engraving to the present. Rather than attempt anything of that detail, we will be focusing on the highlights, beginning in the 1950s and moving to the present day.

Flat File – the work of Herb Lubalin, in context – Creative Review. A new web publication on the Readymag platform is set to look at one piece of work from the Herb Lubalin Study Centre archive each week.

If the first instalment on the 1964 design of Fact magazine is anything to go by, we suggest subscribing. Examining a single piece of graphic design on a weekly basis might not sound like a schedule attuned to the pace of modern web publishing, but when the work comes direct from the archive at the Herb Lubalin Study Center – and is presented via the Readymag format – it’s likely to be a bit special. The first instalment of Flat File, with its focus on Lubalin’s art direction and design of Fact magazine in 1964, does not disappoint.

Flat File is edited by the HLSC’s Alexander Tochilovsky and designed by Readymag founder, Anton Herasymenko (whose own art direction on the sleek Enso design journal also neatly demonstrates the web platform).

Milton Glaser. Dieci cose che ho imparato

All’inizio della mia carriera pensavo che fosse vero il contrario. Il professionismo significava che le persone per cui lavoravi non dovevano esserti particolarmente simpatiche o almeno che dovevi tenerti a debita distanza. 2) Se puoi scegliere, scegli di non avere un’occupazione Una notte ero seduto nella mia macchina fuori dalla Columbia University, dove mia moglie Shirley studiava antropologia. 3) Certe persone sono tossiche.
