Bureau Mirko Borsche creates series of posters for the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra

Bureau Mirko Borsche creates series of posters for the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Bureau Mirko Borsche has worked with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra on a series of posters that advertise the institution’s next season of concerts. The Munich-based studio has collaborated with the orchestra in the past, having created posters for it since its 2013/2014 season. For this years’ series, the studio has used its custom typeface developed specifically for the client. “We developed a unique typeface because they are mostly programme posters using the names and titles of the concerts, so we have to be able to generate personality through type,” explains Gian Gisiger, who worked with Mirko Borsche on the project.

“Design has nothing to do with art”: Design legend Milton Glaser dispels a universal misunderstanding | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Design is not art. It’s a distinction understood by practicing designers, but it still eludes many. In an Oct. 29 talk at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, the 87-year-old graphic design legend Milton Glaser gave the best definition of the practice of design. “Design is the process of going from an existing condition to a preferred one,” said the 2010 National Medal of Arts recipient. “Observe that there’s no relationship to art.”

A Panorama has a quite modest objective: the provision of an initial survey of journals devoted to design research.
