Nice photographic series in this issue of Foam Magazine (#24), called Natura © Pablo Lopez Luz. Feels a bit like summer to me.
Really loving the latest identity for the Whitney Museum of American Art. It is unconventional and apparently high maintenance, probably requiring a very comprehensive brand standards manual and a skilled designer to execute any further applications for the museum. Although some may see this identity as frivolous and limiting, I think these are trivial excuses which should not stifle a great creative concept such as this one. What I like the best is how the ‘W’ is able to change shape to fit different applications and uses, very much like a good museum, designed to host all different art installations.

Curatorial practice has always been a point of fascination for me. I recently stumbled upon the blog
of Stephanie Gonot and was blown away by her images and assembly of things to create in many cases, very graphic and interesting expressions of art.
One image posted on her blog belongs to Thomas Prior. I love how the (soap?) islands in the puddle look so much like typography. Also the tones and space between the characters makes for a really beautiful image. For my type students, this is a great example of how natural forms can also create cohesion. These letters all look like they belong to the same typeface.
This TED video by Ron Finley got me quite stoked for the planting season ahead.
nice little video about design, process & passion
Really lovely work from Donna Ruff. Hand cut New York Times newspaper front pages.
