NYC Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual Reissue

NYC Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual

 

After discovering a copy of the NYC Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual in the basement of Pentagram, designers Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth have set out to reissue this unique piece of history. For a limited time you can support their efforts through a Kickstarter campaign that has been set up. Starting at the $118 level, each backer will receive a copy of the reproduction which will include an intro by Michael Beirut. After this campaign, the book will never be reissued again. See all the details here.

Goncalo Viana

Goncalo Viana on grainedit.com

 

I’m loving the retro stylings of Goncalo Viana. A native of Lison, he originally studied architecture, but discovered his true passion lies with illustration. His portfolio is filled with dense, layered compositions brimming with geometric shapes and brilliant imagery.

Made You Look

Made you Look Film on grainedit..com

 

Made You Look is a documentary about the UK DIY graphic arts scene of the 21st century. Via candid interviews with top British creatives, publishers and agency owners the film explores the fact that more people than ever seem to be turning to analogue means of creating things, even though we are living at the height of the digital era. Sam Arthur, Adrian Johnson, Kate Moross, and Anthony Burril are just a few of  the folks featured in this fine film.

Made You Look is due for limited theatrical release in 2015. For more info visit the official website.

Recently Received: NAVA

Nava Superbag

NAVA is an Italian brand that has strong roots in the design community. Established in 1970, they have a long history of working with the leading designers of the day. Nendo Projects, Massimo Vignelli, Enzo Mari, Naoto Fukasawa and Max Huber are just a few of the designers that NAVA has collaborated with over the years. The success of these partnerships has allowed NAVA to craft a functional yet undeniably stylish product line that supercedes vain fashion.  Many of these products have gone on to become icons that are still displayed in museums and galleries around the world.

We recently received a package from NAVA which contained items from the latest Michel Charlot collaboration as well as a classic notepad/daily planner designed by Max Huber during the early stages of the company. We explore these products in words and pictures after the jump.
