A bold art gallery identity that changes to reflect every decade of 20th Century art

A bold art gallery identity that changes to reflect every decade of 20th Century art | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

It can’t be an easy brief to create designs for an art gallery: the precedent has been set with clean, polite branding; and there’s the constant emphasis on letting the work do the talking. Sometimes though an identity comes along and gleefully swipes away convention, like this one by London-based designer Alice Donadoni. She was tasked with creating custom typography and broadening for the January, February and March monthly programmes for Museo del Novecento, Milan, which is devoted to showing 20th Century art.

The Lost, Surprisingly Soulful Art of Corporate Identity | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Nonetheless, manuals are ephemeral, and many were simply discarded when identities changed or businesses merged or closed. Now, a thick, rich compilation with the deceivingly dreary title, Manuals 1: Design and Identity Guidelines (Unit Editions) digs back up some of these treasured tomes.

A Heavy Bass Beat, a Wreath of Smoke, an Aura of Sweat

A Heavy Bass Beat, a Wreath of Smoke, an Aura of Sweat | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

"Interior. Leather Bar." is a sly conceptual coup d’art and a deeply sincere exploration of masculinity and its discontents, with a little hot sex thrown in. The movie’s ostensible point of departure is 40 minutes of graphic footage of S-and-M that the director William Friedkin was forced to edit out of “Cruising,” his 1980 thriller with Al Pacino, to avoid an X rating. Inspired by what they rather cryptically term the mythology of “Cruising,” Mr. Franco and Mr. Mathews have set out to reimagine this excised material.

ASO MOHAMMADI.

ASO MOHAMMADI. | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

I grew up in Switzerland. I like a dual Swiss and Kurdish culture, I speak Kurdish at home, I had an education between the Kurdish tradition and modern Swiss. I am very interested in oriental rugs patterns and colors that can be felt in some of my images, in other pictures I’m colder and stiffer- it is perhaps the european side.

35 Years as the Unofficial Photographer of Transgendered Life

35 Years as the Unofficial Photographer of Transgendered Life | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Mariette Pathy Allen’s 35-year journey documenting the transgendered community had a serendipitous beginning.

In 1978, Allen and her husband went on a trip to New Orleans and happened to stay in the same inn as a group of cross-dressers. One morning after breakfast, the group began taking pictures by the swimming pool, and Allen, already with her camera equipment, gently asked if she could take a few shots as well.

Dual Room reappropriates the glory hole in its identity for a festival about sexuality

Dual Room reappropriates the glory hole in its identity for a festival about sexuality | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

"La Fête du Slip":http://www.lafeteduslip.ch/2016/en/home/ is an annual event in Switzerland that aims to convey a “positive and celebratory approach to sexualities,” and through a series of creative events it addresses ideas surrounding gender, body image and sex. While the festival is an important event, which covers many issues, there’s a tongue-in-cheek flavour to the whole programme. As such, Berlin-based studio Dual Room has adopted a similar mischievous approach for the identity that's been inspired by the glory hole – a universal cavern, devoid of judgement.

Graphic Design: Manual's stonking identity for San Francisco Design Week

Graphic Design: Manual's stonking identity for San Francisco Design Week | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

I can only imagine that it must be quite daunting as a designer, to be confronted with the brief “design an identity for an event which brings together some of the most exciting creatives in one giant hot pot of ideas.” How can you represent diversity of all the different mediums participating in a way that’s clean and free of clutter? Presumably California-based studio Manual are the ones to go to when faced with such a problem, as the identity they’ve created for San Francisco Design Week 2013 is a fantastic example of how to go about it.

Ioana Cătălina Negulescu's curator insight, November 18, 2013 5:51 AM

Great example of forgetting a bit about this haunting digital world and designing something physical; amazing layout and definitely quite a lot of thinking outside the box.
