If you’re tuned in to men’s fashion, you hardly need to be reminded that Agenda Long Beach starts tomorrow. Looking forward to it. I can’t say enough good things about this trade show. Here’s a list of the exhibiting brands, if you’re curious at all. It’s a pretty hefty list. Fancy flyer action by Dabs Myla.
LA TACO have a good preview of work from the upcoming Public Works exhibit. The exhibit is part indoor (at LALA Arts) and part outdoor – on public billboards throughout LA. Some pretty hefty names on the list too. Check the preview out.
My Design Stories have put together 88 year’s worth of summer and winter Olympic logos, if that’s your sort of thing. The London 2012 logo is not my favorite, to say the least.
LA-based producer/DJ FLying Lotus has released another summer-y mix, the third installment of his “Lovers Melt” series. As with the others, it starts out with a big set of summer-y soul staples. That’s followed by some old dub and roots records, and then it’s off into psyche rock land, and beyond. Streaming and download links at Che Sing The Cool.
Keeping the Australian artist theme going for the day, here’s a video from “Break Night Lovers” – the Dabs Myla show at Known Gallery earlier this year. It was shot on a GoPro by Birdman, and is essentially a time-lapse of the art duo painting the installation. It also has an original score by Ian Rees. Via LA TACO. [Watch Video]
Talented Australian artist Meggs has a solo show on exhibit at White Walls gallery in SF at the moment. Juxtapoz posted a nice preview before the opening. More recently, his work has appeared on French blog au secours j’ai un blog and InspireFirst. If you’d like more info, Hi-Fructose have posted a recent studio visit and an interview from 2011 too.
This feature of work by designer/typographer Andrei Robu over on Design Work Life really caught my eye. His “Brooklyn” lettering, for example, is really nice. Head over to the feature to get links to the 3 type & design blogs he also runs. And you can head to his personal site for a whole lot more of his impressive work.
Looks like British publisher Unit Editions is taking pre-orders on their upcoming Herb Lubalin monograph. Herb Lubalin was one of the original Mad Men of the 50’s and 60’s, and went on to become one of America’s most influential typographers and graphic designers. According to Unit Editions, “Along with Saul Bass and Paul Rand, Herb Lubalin forms a trio of American graphic design greatness.” Head to their site for preview photos of the numbered & boxed monograph set.
