SVA Subway Posters

Visual Arts Press

The School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York releases a subway advertisement every year. Over the 70 year history of the school it’s internal studio The Visual Arts Press has collaborated with many celebrated designers (Paula Scher, Louise Fili, Milton Glaser, George Tscherny; to name a few) to create these posters. Each poster uniquely sells the idea of fostering creativity in a way that can withstand the visual clutter of New York’s subway. More posters can be seen here.

The Barnes Foundation contains one of the most significant holdings of Matisse in the world. This definitive three-volume catalogue of the artist at the museum is an utterly wonderful piece of editorial design by Abbott Miller & Kim Walker at Pentagram. It is bold and surprising and yet pitch-perfect. It’s one of the most beautiful – and most considered – book projects I’ve seen in recent years.

Me We

Design by Design Bridge in collaboration with The Counter Press

A collaborative solution for a collaborative problem. Design Bridge asked The Counter Press to work with them on a book for staff, Me/We explains what they stand for from both agency and individual point of view: read from one end gives the ‘Me’ story, while flipping the book over and reading from the other side gives the ‘We’ story.

Shop Around designed by Toko in Australia is an identity for an online creative store. The identity cleverly refers to the printed vernacular of the sticky price tags that we’ve all seen at corner stores throughout the world. Taking an age old process to brand a modern online experience is always a winner. A lovely trick using the diecut to create the ‘o’s.
