“The branding for the logo was designed to make the magazine look like it had been on the shelf for 50 years, and the challenge was to make it look both classical and also capture the digital newsness of the brand all at the same time. The capital-height lower case ‘e’ is given an italic emphasis to feminize the design, and is a subliminal wink towards the online functionality.”

-Robin Derrick, creative director of Porter, the print magazine from Net-a-porter that debuts next month.

The Missing Ink: Philip Hensher Explores Lost Art of Handwriting

Thu, 01/02/2014 - 19:18

With thank-you note season in full swing, Lauren Palmer take a closer look at the endangered species that is handwriting. Here’s her take on Philip Hensher‘s The Missing Ink, recently released in paperback by Faber & Faber.

missing ink coverBack when I was in kindergarten, I remember entering the classroom on Monday mornings and marveling at the new letter of the alphabet displayed in masking tape in the center of the floor. One huge letterform in either capital or lowercase, print or cursive, to be traced with our tiny steps before our tiny hands put pen to paper. For the next six years, I was taught the art of handwriting through tedious in-class drills and homework assignments. I can look back now and praise my teachers for instructing me on how to write legibly. Yet the years of typing and texting since have turned my script into a hybrid scrawl: messy, unfocused, and decidedly illegible.

Is handwriting inextricably linked to personality? Does poor script mean moral failure, or vice versa? Philip Hensher evaluates these ideas put forth by early graphologists in The Missing Ink. It’s fascinating to think that one’s handwriting was once a signifier of suitability for a job, or a mate. With examples and analysis taken from literature, psychology, and product design, Hensher examines how penmanship “is what registers our individuality, and the mark which our culture has made on us.”

Mark Your Calendar: Art Spiegelman and Phillip Johnston’s Wordless!

Thu, 01/02/2014 - 12:02

wordlessTry as we might, we can never get enough of Art Spiegelman—in the unlikely event that you disagree, treat yourself to a copy of Co-Mix: A Retrospective of Comics, Graphics, and Scraps (Drawn and Quarterly). That illuminating and illuminated volume also functions as a catalogue of sorts for the Spiegelfest on view through March 23 at New York’s Jewish Museum. The outside-of-the-box comics/art fun moves from the page to the wall to the stage on Saturday, January 18, when BAM presents Wordless!. Billed as “an innovative hybrid of slides, talk, and musical performance,” the work was created by Spiegelman and jazz composer Phillip Johnston as a commission for the Sydney Opera House. Tickets are going fast. Prepare for the evening of multisensory stimulation with this Spiegelvideo from the Jewish Museum:
