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.

Miroslav Tichý’s Vagabond Voyeurism

Miroslav Tichý’s Vagabond Voyeurism | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

With Miroslav Tichý’s “Trap for a Voyeur” now on view atGalerie Christophe Gaillard in Paris, it’s time to decide whether the late Czech photographer’s output is sinister or seductive.

Tichý is known for capturing covert shots of unbeknowing women. The artist wandered around the streets and parks of Kyjov, Czechoslovakia, and whenever he spotted a woman he liked the look of, a body he could desire from a distance, he took her photograph. His work was surreptitious: it wasn’t that he asked her. To call him a “voyeur,” as does the exhibition’s title, is to put it lightly.

south african photographer pieter hugo x-rays his homeland | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

World acclaimed photographer, Pieter Hugo, describes his series Kin as "an engagement with the failure of the South African colonial experiment and my sense of being colonial driftwood. South Africa is such a fractured, schizophrenic, wounded, and problematic place…" In 2006, the Johannesburg native started gathering portraits and landscapes focused on his hometown raising some crucial questions such as: how does one live in this society? How do you raise a family in such a conflicted society? Hugo confesses that before getting married and having children, these questions did not trouble him; now they do.

For this assignment photographer Yale Joel set up a trick mirror in Times Square Theatre in 1946.

MoMA Resurrects a Lost Landmark of Black Film History

MoMA Resurrects a Lost Landmark of Black Film History | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“100 Years in Post-Production: Resurrecting a Lost Landmark of Black Film History,” currently on view at Museum of Modern Art. provides a never before seen look at 101-year-old film footage of the earliest known surviving feature film with a cast of black actors. The footage was found among 900 negatives from the Biograph Studio, which MoMA’s founding Film Curator, Iris Barry, acquired in 1939. Since all of the films featuring black cast members from the early 20th-century are considered lost, this rare discovery of the 1913 rushes launched an intensive research project to identify members of production, crew, and actors.
