At home, alone, in my room, when no one is watching, I make models using Comic Sans So of course, I laughed, but deep down, I said to myself “ and me, what are my secrets as a graphic designer? » And you then, what are your secrets as a graphic designer? If you like Pantones and credit cards! Visa and Pantone today announced a partnership to produce Pantone color bank cards. This odd partnership makes me wonder about the increasingly “fashionable” direction that Pantone is taking and about the (still young) discovery of the lack of originality in credit cards.
Indeed, we often end up with bank cards that image manipulation service are totally ugly or devoid of graphic interest (although once I remember having had a transparent orange bank card). With this initiative, maybe Visa will open the door to bank card design? Irma Boom, for the love of handmade books. We start this Tuesday morning with a video by Graphic Designer Irma Boom. This graphic designer has created more than 250 books, 50 of which are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Many of his books have become international references in terms of Dutch design.
Through this short documentary, Irma Boom shares us her vision of books, which she sees as objects that transmit ideas and stories and that speak to all the human senses. A beautiful sincere testimony and an interesting approach to the book today. With her passion for the book object, her use of non-conforming formats, special materials, colors, structures and different typographies, Irma Boom replaces the book in a new visual and haptic experience.
