Philippe Apeloig’s Typorama | The Type Directors Club

Philippe Apeloig’s Typorama | The Type Directors Club | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Philippe Apeloig is a graphic designer who loves letters. The new book Typorama makes this wonderfully clear in its 384 pages of designs and sketches by Apeloig, essays, and even the title. The word “typorama” suggests a wide perspective of typographic features, a panorama of Philippe Apeloig’s work.

 

Typorama presents Apeloig’s poster, publication, and identity designs from the early 1980s to the present. A 1983 design for the Dutch office Total Design is the earliest piece by Apeloig in Typorama, and it reflects Total Design’s modernist design legacy.

France fights bad restaurant food by introducing funny 'homemade' symbol | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it
Restaurant-goers in France will find symbol on menu that shows which dishes are homemade.

 

PARIS — Restaurant-goers in France will start seeing a funny little symbol on their menus this week: a skillet with a house on top, indicating your menu choice is made in-house.

It’s part of a new law meant to battle against the surprising amount of factory-made, prepackaged food in French restaurants, and celebrate the country’s culinary traditions.

Two dozen people—a JP Morgan associate, a sex worker, a pastor, a living statue, a marine, “the World’s First Publicly Traded Person,” and many more—tell us the best way to invest a single dollar.

How social media is changing art

How social media is changing art | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it
French street artist JR, known for his installations of giant photographs, has just unveiled his largest portrait yet. It will also be the hardest to see in person.

 

JR wrapped more than 150 shipping containers with black-and-white photos printed on paper and arranged the containers on a freighter. The pictures form an enormous black-and-white image of two eyes that stretches the length of the 1,200-foot vessel. Fans can check out the image first-hand only at stops between the northern French port of Le Havre, from where the freighter set sail Friday, and Malaysia, where it arrives in about a month. The few ports of call include Malta and Tangiers, Morocco.

JR will be documenting the photograph’s voyage—and its deterioration—on his Instagram account;

Rise of the DEO | Leadership by Design

Rise of the DEO | Leadership by Design | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Posted 12.11.13

 

An excerpt from the book Rise of the DEO by Maria Giudice & Christopher Ireland.

 

(...)

 

We live in a time where little is predictable. No career path is predetermined. No one can play it safe. The majority of companies, their employees, and their leaders navigate a space where competitors appear overnight, customers demand innovations monthly, business plans rarely last a full year, and career ladders have been replaced by trampolines. This environment of incessant, nonlinear change will only accelerate in the future. Traditional CEOs are ill-equipped to survive.

 

(...)

 

A logical response to these avalanches of advice is to surrender. We throw up our hands and hope our inherent traits or some measure of luck will suffice. Perhaps we’ll work for the right startup, or get the attention of the right boss, or happen upon the right industry in its earliest stages. Maybe we’ll stumble across a mentor who can help us make sense of conflicting paths and tortuous routes.

Another response — the one advocated in this book — is to identify the business function best suited to these tumultuous times and use it to guide your actions. (...)

 

Now that companies need agility and imagination, in addition to analytics, we believe it’s time to turn to Design as a model of leadership.

 

(...)

 

Proposing design-inspired leadership as the answer may sound delusional to some, like a zealous art teacher attacking poverty with a new color palette. But that’s a knee-jerk reaction, based largely on associations of design with discretion, luxury, and logos. A more realistic assessment confirms that design leaders usually possess characteristics, behaviors, and mindsets that enable them to excel in unpredictable, fast-moving, and value-charged conditions.

8 Things Every Design Firm Should Know About Running A Business

8 Things Every Design Firm Should Know About Running A Business | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Almost eight years ago, I sat down with my partner in crime, Gavin Kelly, and we made one of the best decisions of our lives--we started our own design consultancy, Artefact. We were driven by the not so humble ambition to become the best digital design and innovation company in the world. And we think we are on the right path. But starting, running, and growing your own design company has also been a tremendous learning experience. With every achievement comes a new set of challenges to overcome and lessons to learn. In the spirit of transparency, and with hope that by sharing the lessons we have learned we could save fellow designers some frustration, here are eight insights we've gleaned over the years.

 

The design industry is changing rapidly. There is a ton of business out there, but it has gotten a lot more competitive. Always be ready to adapt.

Vorige week presenteerden de Kamer van Koophandel, Mercedes-Benz en NRC Media voor de negende keer de ranglijst met 100 concrete innovaties die het Nederlandse Midden- en Kleinbedrijf heeft gerealiseerd. De hoogste notering is voor de gifvrije, zelfklevende folie van Micanti BV uit Amsterdam, dat wordt gebruikt om op scheepswanden te plakken. De folie, Thorn-D®, is een gepatenteerde milieuvriendelijke oplossing om de aangroei van organismen als zeepokken en mossels aan oppervlakken van schepen tegen te gaan.

NIKE have designed several new typefaces for teams playing at this year’s FIFA world cup including two collaborations with renowned graphic designers, wim crouwel (netherlands) and neville brody (england).

Niels Biersteker's insight:

Each nation is steeped in its own traditions. Adidas, Nike and Puma -- the three primary uniform outfitters for this year's World Cup field -- must adhere to those traditions, while also incorporating their own aesthetic and design technologies.

 

To learn more about this, read this interview with Martin Lotti, Nike's creative director for football, and Jennifer Valentine, Adidas' category manager for soccer;

[excerpt]
It began as a personal artistic exercise—a reaction to New York– based founder and designer Aleksandar Maćašev’s reluctance to be vibrant in his own work. “We constantly face a torrent of infl uences on our perception of color and on our expression with color,” he says. “Culture, visual communication, commerce and design trends all shape how we think about color. And if you went to an art school, add color theory to the mix. I wanted to get rid of all these limitations as much as I could and try to use color in a very personal way by expressing my own emotions through it
