Icon: exploring cutting-edge projects by the most influential designers and architects. Issue 172 at the Newsstand now, featuring London-based French designer Camille Walala. “Her joyful compositions are impossible to miss, combining geometric blocks of colours with gritty urbanism.” @iconeye @camillewalala
Now reading: "No is not enough" by Naomi Klein. ◾ There's a fifth-grade bully in the White House and (for the time being) he's lacking parental supervision. Klein shows us (some) of the horrible decisions made by the current Tweeter-in-Chief, how this nightmarish situation came to be, and how it is, in part, spreading throughout the Western hemisphere. ◾ The tools for defeating the current fear-mongerers as put forth by a Canadian initiative including the author are decidedly utopian but it can be no other way; the current political climate is too surrealistic and dystopian.◾ I try to pull a quote or two from each book I read but in this case that's not enough (no pun intended), it's imperative that the contents of this book reach as many people as possible. Read it. Now. #nowreading#fortheloveofbooks#printedmatter#paperback#naomiklein#noisnotenough

I'm in The gorgeous city of Philadelphia giving a short talk on the most recent works @tylerschoolofart as a part of Print Think, 2017. I am gonna be holding a Philadelphia Weekend Raffle, so introduce yourself and get yourself a raffle ticket. I think you are lucky. I will pick a winner, of some printed miscellany, at the end of the weekend! @tyler_printmaking @amzeland #lucky#philadelphia#printedmatter#papersculpture#benjaminfranklin#printthink2017
@pdnonline conducted an interview with me last week that will be online in a couple of weeks. I’ll be sharing more when the story is released. They asked me to highlight three of my recent favorites that I’ve designed for photographers. Justin @fantl and I have collaborated on several of his promos together. The most recent promo was based on a set of still-life shots he took about first generation technology. Taken together, the series read as an artifacts study. I designed the catalog as a field guide of a bygone era, incorporating facts and quotes from tech pioneers. The print process was a deliberately lo-if newsprint run. We wanted it to look like it had been around since 1983. / 3 of 3
@pdnonline conducted an interview with me last week that will be online in a couple of weeks. They asked me to highlight three of my recent favorites that I’ve designed (for varied reasons) and I’m sharing them here, as a preview of the article. @mattarmendariz has had a prolific career, and he wanted to create a package to show his range as a photographer. But what I wanted to show was his personality. Matt has quite the comedic wit (as anyone who follows him on Twitter can attest) so I presented to him the idea of his iconic imagery taking the viewer through the cooking process, from prep to appetizers to main courses to desserts. The pages would be supplemented with quotes from famous chefs of color and female chefs, the ones that you don’t hear enough about (Carla Hall, Toni Tipton Martin and Michael Twitty, for example). In addition to being beautiful, the book doubles as a social commentary. This is the catalog that I’ve received the most inquiries about this year, from companies as varied as Crate and Barrel (to ask about the printing process) and Adobe (to ask about the photography). We’re discussing a follow-up, and I’m curious to see what we’ll come up with. Coincidentally, I’m grateful to @lindapugliese for introducing us. / 2 of 3
Pretty in Pink: Table of Contents page from Issue Zero, which you can order from the link in the profile. Since there will be no reprints, and with each issue having its own distinct style, you might want to grab a copy before Issue One is out. Message me if you are wondering about stockists in your city, or you can order online.
