Regular Graphic Design Today. Editors: R. Klanten, S. Ehmann, A. Mollard

My notes on key statements excerpted from the foreword:

Nowadays designers like to combine three different stylistic tools – for ex photography – typography – patterns (illo) – to create complex works.

Create a very personal impression on observers / visitors.

Underlying? The need to ‘humanize’ the result. Although you can’t see me – there is still a real person behind this piece.

Economic hardships lead to creating greater value = reducing superficiality.

‘Authorship’ means that designers are increasingly creating all components of their designs (images, fonts) themselves. This happens to such an extent that posters, small portfolios and magazines are being produced and published entirely by the designers themselves. Distributed via Internet / mail.

Develop your own design profile / target a signature collection / your own trademark approach. For years I have spoken about the ‘Online the Brand is You’ principle. Treating yourself as a product (not in a dehumanizing sense / but w/ literal objectivity) to achieve expressing uniqueness of talent = your signature.

Sometimes clients w/ approach bc of personal work.

Less and more

Less and More: Dieter Rams exhibit project at the Design Museum by Bibliothèque.

A retrospective exhibition dedicated to Dieter Rams, one of the 20th century’s most influential industrial designers. As head of design at Braun, the German consumer electronics manufacturer, Rams defined an elegant and rigorous visual language for its products.

The exhibition featured 244 objects, spanning six decades of his life and work.

_______

Father of the ‘Less is more’ principle – this exhibit / installation project is one that I wish I could have seen. He was a master at beautiful in simplicity that is timeless.

When you look at these today – you can’t miss being impressed by this creative giant who is making quite a comeback in the design circles in the past couple of years.

Spot the Future

How to Spot the Future by Thomas Goetz

Odds are that any idea deemed potentially transformative, any trend we think has legs, draws on one or more core principles. They have played a major part in creating the world we see today.

1. Look for cross-pollinators.

2. Surf the exponentials.

3. Favor the liberators.

4. Give points for audacity.

5. Bank on openness.

6. Demand deep design.

7. Spend time with time wasters.
