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.

Olympic Logos

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.

Andrei Robu

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.
