LUDMILA BREDIKHINA — Interview

LUDMILA BREDIKHINA — Interview | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
When I was a kid I loved the letterings in old Russian books. And during my first 4 years of school in Moscow we had special homework that focused on drawing properly letters and numbers. Everyday we had to copy 50 times a set of characters and I really loved doing that.

Missy Minear's curator insight, May 8, 2015 2:32 PM

It's interesting how many different subjects you can shoot as a freelance photographer. Between landscapes and people and for magazines, there are just a lot of opportunities.

aaron draplin (DDC) interview

aaron draplin (DDC) interview | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

DB: please could you tell us briefly about the evolution of your work?
AD: I started out in print, laying out newspaper ads. loads of information, packed into small spaces. when I started making magazines in 2000, there was a mountain of information, photos and elements. I loved the pace and the challenge. I was comfortable with taking a lot of information and distilling it down into something readable, versatile and hopefully, fun to process. as the years have progressed, my focus is more and more on logos and individual elements. so I like to think my work has evolved from complex layouts down to simplified little forms. but man, I still know my way around a grid! try me, you punks!

Bernardo Bertolucci, Through Trials and Travails, Maintains That Cinema 'Is Life'

Bernardo Bertolucci, Through Trials and Travails, Maintains That Cinema 'Is Life' | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, I met, in the lobby of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, with one of the most revered filmmakers of all time, Bernardo Bertolucci. The 73-year-old Italian master, who is now wheelchair-bound as a result of several botched back surgeries, was in town to attend the AFI Fest for the second year in a row; in 2012 he was a guest artistic director at the fest and in 2013 he was a special guest of it, proudly attending the fest's screening of his 1987 Oscar-winning classic The Last Emperor in 3D -- at the TCL Chinese Theatre, appropriately enough -- the night before our conversation. A few days later, on Nov. 14, he would also collect the Cinema Italian Style Award at the Cinema Italia Style film festival at the Egyptian Theatre. During our time together, I, too, asked him to look back at his remarkable life and career.

An Interview with the British Photographer Kurtiss Lloyd off Brick Lane, London

An Interview with the British Photographer Kurtiss Lloyd off Brick Lane, London | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The British photographer Kurtiss Lloyd and I first met at the Nomadic
Community Garden off Brick Lane, London. There we spent an afternoon talking and taking photographs of the street art. Finding his way to photography through an interest in dance, Kurtiss grew up in an English mining town without any artistic training. But he soon found his way into the fashion world, collaborating with brands like Dior, Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and Philip Tracey.

An interview with the curator of the RCA's major graphic design show | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

In 1963, the Royal College of Art held an exhibition celebrating 15 years of the school of graphic design. In the show’s catalogue, Professor Richard Guyatt remembered the days when the term was adopted by the college. “With a certain sense of relief, but not much conviction, the name ‘Graphic Design’ was chosen,” he wrote. “No one was quite sure what it meant, but it had a purposeful ring…”

Thierry Blancpain - Interview

Thierry Blancpain - Interview | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

I’m one half of Grilli Type, an independent Swiss type foundry started in 2009. A friend once described me as an “internet person”, which fits me quite well. I love the intersection of design and technology and all the things made possible by that – like starting a small type foundry while still being students. I studied Visual Communication at the Bern University of the Arts from 2007 to 2010 and have been a freelance web and identity designer before, during and after studying. Now I work full time for Grilli Type. I met my co-founder Noël Leu when he joined our class from ECAL after the first semester. We quickly became friends after I saw him work on a typeface on his first day in school.

Book Builder: A Conversation with Irma Boom

Book Builder: A Conversation with Irma Boom | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Dutch-born Irma Boom is widely recognized as one of the world’s foremost book designers, and is the youngest person ever to receive the prestigious Gutenberg Prize for a body of work. Her books are distinguished by her experimental approach to formats and a willingness to take design risks; she incorporates the often-overlooked edges of books into the overall design, is happy to challenge the assumption that a lengthy book requires an index or individual page numbers, and has produced an all-white book for Chanel that relies on embossing rather than ink to convey the content. Over 50 of her titles are included in the permanent collection at MoMA, in the Collection of the Centre Pompidou, and in The Irma Boom Archive at the Special Collections of the University of Amsterdam.
