Modern Art Movements To Inspire Your Logo Design - Smashing Maga Advertisement It’s always nice to go to a bookstore, grab a book of logo designs, sit down, inhale that new-book smell and absorb the goodness. But knowing where all of these designs, fonts and creative elements have come from is also good. In this article, we look at modern art movements and a series of diverse logos inspired by those movements. You may be surprised by how easily these colors, shapes and strokes can be adapted to logo design. Bauhaus J. In 1919, the Bauhaus school was founded in Weimar Germany. Kandinsky, On White II.

The Exquisite Book Project: A Big Announceme Happy New Year everyone! I couldn’t wait to start off the year with a huge announcement I have been dying to share for months. For the past year and a half, Jenny, Matt (my ALSO partners) and I have been working on curating/authoring/designing a new art book called The Exquisite Book which will be published by Chronicle Books this fall! We are so excited to have Dave Eggers of the popular McSweeney’s, 826 Valencia program and screenwriter for Where the Wild Things Are contributing an illustrated introduction to our book!! The book idea is loosely based on the game started by the Surrealists in the 1920′s called the Exquisite Corpse. Here is how our project is set up: There are ten groups of ten artists participating in the process. Besides continuing the story of the last artist, there is another, more visual, connection between the pages. We set up a simple website to help us organize and schedule all of the artists. The best part about this book was that it was a complete experiment.
