Adversity brings out creativity

Supposedly this great period of financial turmoil will be a boon to the arts and self expression asĀ  we all try to make sense of this new paradigm into which we’ve been plunged. Can’t remember where I read that but I’m pretty sure that was the gist of one of the many ‘it won’t be so bad’ things the NYT, SMH, Guardian, et al. put out from time to time. I imagine Cards of Change is exactly the type of thing they imagine popping up all over the place. A project started by a group of laid off TBWA/Chiat/Day employees the idea is that you take your business card from your freshly former place of employment, scratch out...

The viral states that FBI Recruitment, who know where you work, also know that...

Museum of Arts and Design

The revamped Museum of Arts and Design opened in New York a few weeks back They’re sporting newly redesigned digs and a brand spanking new graphic identity. The geometric design is apparently all over the city, plastered on the side of planes, trains and automobiles as well as the odd street banner. One can only begin to imagine the pressure involved in being the person responsible for creating an identity for a museum dedicated to great design but, for what it’s worth, I think the guys at Pentagram did a pretty good job. I’m a fan of the unique typeface they’ve created. Apparantly they drew inspiration from the building’s shape and location to create the new look. You...
