Unbeige - Thu, 05/22/2014 - 11:05
Spending your Memorial Day Weekend in New York City? Don't miss "Century: 100 Years of Type in Design," on view through June 18 at the AIGA National Design Center. Part of AIGA's centennial celebration, the fontastic—and free—exhibition was created by Pentagram partner and AIGA medalist Abbott Miller (we are eagerly anticipating his new book, Design and Content, coming soon from Princeton Architectural Press) in partnership with Monotype. It runs the chronological and technological gamut from Akzidenz Grotesk to Zapf Dingbats with works drawn from the collections of The Type Directors Club, Condé Nast, Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, The Herb Lubalin Study Center at Cooper Union, and many more. Here's a preview:

Seven Questions for Giulio Iacchetti

Unbeige - Wed, 05/21/2014 - 21:26
More than 10,000 people visited WantedDesign, which wrapped up on Monday in New York. A highlight among the more than 60 exhibitors was Italian design powerhouse Alessi, which presented projects stemming from research and workshops the company has conducted in collaboration with several young designers around the world. Veteran Alessi designer Giulio Iacchetti was on hand to showcase his new "Noè" collection of wine accessories. The name is a nod to Noah, the biblical patriarch. "He is not just famous for building the ark, but also for his passion for wine," says Iacchetti, who is based in Milan. "And it is said that he invented it after being the first to experiment with vine cultivation." We popped open a bottle of bubbly—with the aid of his bottle-shaped opener—and asked him seven questions. What was the concept for the Noè set? The inspiring concept for these objects designed to serve and preserve wine comes by a strong formal reference to existing wine imagery, so the bottle holder refers to a cluster of grapes, the Champagne stopper recalls those corks used to hermetically seal Champagne bottles, the shape of the Champagne cork opener is inspired by the outline of a bottle, and finally, the drop-stop ring is truly the engagement between us and wine! What has distinguished your collaborations with Alessi from those with other companies? When I think of Italian design and design companies, I think immediately of Alessi. Alessi could be really considered the “dream factory”—as Alberto Alessi defined his company years ago—for its exceptional capability to combine real industrial productivity with the openness to collect in its catalog many different products categories. Every time I go to Crusinallo [Alessi headquarters], I personally live a life-long dream. continued...

Murray Olderman Talks About Becoming a Cartoonist

Unbeige - Wed, 05/21/2014 - 21:20
Murray Olderman has had a storied career as a syndicated newspaper columnist and cartoonist. Although this 92-year-old is officially retired, he's actually working on a new book, comprised of illustrations and cartoons of people in sports he's known and drawn. In our latest So What Do You Do column, we spoke with Olderman about journalism school in the 1940s, his most memorable interview and how he got started as a cartoonist: I was captivated as a teenager (when I was also writing sports for a county weekly) by the looks of cartoons on sports pages and started copying them, gradually perfecting my techniques through trial and error. I was first published in the Columbia Missourian, a city newspaper paper produced by the Missouri School of Journalism, in my junior year. My first hire, by the McClatchy Newspapers of Sacramento, was as a sports cartoonist. I have written and drawn conjunctively. No preference. A lot of guys have written sports. A lot of guys have drawn sports. Few have done both. For more from Olderman, read: So What Do You Do, Murray Olderman, Iconic Sports Journalist and Cartoonist?
