Cloudy Collection / Print Editions Sometimes it pays to take a step back from all the tiny details and try to distill something to its essence. Simplicity can sometimes be used to gloss over something more complicated, but in the hands of a master, simplicity can clarify an idea so it declares its message more succinctly. On the other hand, in the hands of a master who also happens to be snarky, the idea of simplicity gets turned on its head, and turned into a great visual joke. Have it both ways in this set called “Simple,” with art by Graham Annable, Tad Carpenter, Jennifer Daniel, Tom Gauld, Blanca Gómez, David Huyck, and Lauren Nassef. This stack of seven letterpress prints is made on 4"x6" white bamboo paper using vegetable-based inks on a Vandercook press. Printed with all wind-power by Boxcar Press in Syracuse, NY, the edition is limited to 100 sets of prints.
100 Ideas That Changed Graphic Design by Maria Popova From visual puns to the grid, or what Edward Tufte has to do with the invention of the fine print. Design history books abound, but they tend to be organized by chronology and focused on concrete -isms. From publisher Laurence King, who brought us the epic Saul Bass monograph, and the prolific design writer Steven Heller with design critic Veronique Vienne comes 100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design — a thoughtfully curated inventory of abstract concepts that defined and shaped the art and craft of graphic design, each illustrated with exemplary images and historical context. Idea # 16: METAPHORIC LETTERING

The Key to Creating Remarkable Things No one likes the feeling that other people are waiting – impatiently – for you to get back to them.At the beginning of the day, faced with an overflowing inbox, a list of messages on your voicemail, and the to-do list from your last meeting, it’s tempting to want to “clear the decks” before you start on your own most important work. When you’re up-to-date, you tell yourself, your mind will be clear and it will be easier to focus on the task at hand. The trouble with this approach is that you end up spending the best part of the day on other people’s priorities, running their errands, and giving them what they need. By the time you finally settle down to your own work, it could be mid-afternoon, when your energy has dipped and it’s hard to focus on anything properly.
Penguin Design Award - Home Adult Fiction Cover Award Title brief: Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson Adult Non-Fiction Cover Award Title brief: Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt & Stephen J. aesthetics of joy » color Do we have a universal right to joy? I’ve recently had some new people come into my life who really understand Aesthetics of Joy and what I’m trying to achieve with it. And because they understand it so well, they’re able to challenge me to think about the subject in very different ways. So a couple of weeks ago, one of these new acquaintances asked me this question, and it’s had my mind humming ever since. Is there such a thing as a “universal right to joy”? I answered “yes” immediately, purely on intuition, and since then have been thinking through why I believe this so strongly.
