Back in the Day (But Not Too Far) : Ken Meier

Posted in Color, Design, Events, Exhibitions, Photographs, Yale by Gluekit on December 31, 2008

One of the fun things we did this year was attend the 2008 Yale MFA Graphic Design thesis show, something we try to see each and every year. It’s always a pleasure to see new and exciting work, and this year offered plenty of inspiration. Here’s a snapshot of some of Ken Meier’s work from the show– good stuff!

Black Mountain and Beyond (2008) - Type By Gluekit

Poster typography for a Yale University Art Gallery / ArtParlor symposium about collaboration in the arts and the influence of Black Mountain College. Nothing brings us closer together than the communication of ideas.

New Gluekit poster joy! New type!

Gluekit was recently commissioned to create a very special concert poster for a new band hailing from lovely North East Pennsylvania, featuring a Gluekit relation (Brother Andy) and former Bedford bandmate (Mister Bob Lewis). The poster is for a show this Saturday, May 3, at Cafe Metropolis in Wilkes-Barre, PA. $7. All Ages. Awesome!

Gluekit likes making band posters, and we love making type.

Women Artists

Here we have a poster designed for a Yale University Art Gallery event that takes a closer look at great works of art by women.

We especially liked designing this type because of the contrast between the bulbous rounds and the sharp angled letter forms. X marks the spot where it all comes together– crossing boundaries, invoking new contexts, building up an alphabet bit by bit.

In the Vein of van der Velden

Posted in Black and White, Color, Events, Photographs, Yale by Gluekit on December 17, 2007

Daniel van der Velden lecture

The above image shows a striking poster tacked up on a bulletin board and designed by Yale School of Art Graphic Design MFA students Daniel Harding and Tomas Celizna, for a talk by Dutch designer Daniel van der Velden. The poster plays with van der Velden’s play with the iconic imagery of  the Principality of Sealand.

We made our own alterations to the photograph with a diagonal overlay of color which references the covers van der Velden did for Archis magazine which we were quite smitten with.

Gluekit likes those Dutch design lectures!

Wim Crouwel: International Man of Style

Posted in Color, Events, Exhibitions, Museums, Travel, Type by Gluekit on November 2, 2007

gluekit_post_wimcrouwel.gif

Last week Gluekit attended a very nice AIGA evening event at the New School in New York. After a quick jaunt uptown to take in the Kara Walker retrospective at the Whitney, and a narrow avoidance with some dodgy character blocking up the subway lines, Gluekit settled into cozy seats at the Tishman Auditorium and took in a conversation with two pioneers of modernism, Wim Crouwel and Massimo Vignelli, moderated by Alice Twemlow.  There’s a nicely detailed announcement of the talk here, and as usual AIGA did a fabulous job of organizing the event. It’s always sweet to attend a well-handled lecture, that starts on time, is handled deftly, and that does what it’s supposed to do. In this case, Twemlow scurried hither and thither across the careers of both men, teasing out commonalities and differences, and showing the wide swathe of each man’s design legacy. It was a great session, and for us, Wim totally rocked our sox. There’s something appealing about the application of a system of production that’s reliable, extensible and modular.

Favorite moment? When, after a review of Crouwell’s New Alphabet, Twemlow threw up the album cover for Joy Division’s Substance and noted, to gasps of realization from the audience, that the cover actually reads “Substamce.” It was a beautiful moment of collective realization.

Glukit likes grids, modernism, and mistakes.
