This Week From the Desk
The next life for Standards Manuals has manifested, this time presenting the Brand Standards Manual for the EPA, designed by Chermayeff & Geismar back in 1977. The logo design in itself is a thing of beauty, but the system developed to support the department at its formation is inspiring. The Kickstarter is officially open now. This book is a design nerd MUST.
Ogilvy & Mather partnered with Fontself to create "Gilbert", a font inspired by Gilbert Baker—the creator of the rainbow Pride Flag who sadly passed away this month. See more of this colorfully layered font project on Creative Boom.
Oh how I wish I could go to this. Gail Bichler will be speaking about the development of the New York Times Magazine from 2015 to present day at the TDC in June. If you're in town, GO. See the details and buy tickets on the TDC site here.
Raise your hand if you still use tumblr... 🙋🏼♂️! I was reminded that Production Type's tumblr exists; and its beautiful, obviously. Enjoy the scroll here.
