If you’re interested in type and you’re lucky enough to be in or around NYC this week, check out this Type Nite NYC event at Strand Books on Thursday evening. The all-star line-up includes accomplished typeface designer Tobias Frere-Jones, book designer Peter Mendelsund, and Pentagram partner Abbott Miller. The talk will be moderated by Ellen Lupton, co-author of Graphic Design: The New Basics, 2nd Edition and many other great design titles, several of which I’ve reviewed here. If you’re not in NYC you can still order a signed copy of the latest edition of Graphic Design: The New Basics. Hit the link for more details.
Check out an awesome recap of POW! WOW! Long Beach over at Boooooom thanks to Jeff Hamada who was on hand for all the fun and the wonderful mural/art installations!
When respected San Francisco-based label Benny Gold collaborated with my friend (and talented artist) Benjie Escobar for one of their iconic Guest Glider tees, I had to get some for the shop. Plus, pizza! Features a cheesy, pepperoni-laced, “BG x Benjie” print at the front, and a larger pizza-style glider graphic across the back, along with “Hot & Ready,” and “Air Delivery 1-800-JERKS.” Woven glider logo label on the left sleeve.
This Saturday, SoCal graffiti writer and accomplished artist PUSH has a solo exhibition opening at Known Gallery on Fairfax. The opening reception is 7-10pm. PUSH was also one of the participants in POW! WOW! Long Beach two weeks back, completing a massive mural at the EXPO Arts Center in Bixby Knolls.
