Workshop at FH JOANNEUM

Students from the Institute of Design & Communication, part of FH JOANNEUM University of Applied Sciences in Graz, Austria, just put up a little poster show at their school. The show is a result of our poster workshop titled Social Issues that was held on October 30th, 2017.

The Communication Design majors did a great job, especially considering the workshop lasted
only one day.

The workshop was made possible thanks to the amazing effort of Tomislav Bobinec.

Tadanori Yokoo Essay

I was surprised and honored when Tadanori Yokoo recently asked me to write an essay about him for the new issue of IDEA magazine, one of the most respectable graphic design magazines in the world. The new issue is titled Recent Works of Tadanori Yokoo Since 2010.

For those of you who are not very familiar with graphic design, Tadanori Yokoo and Milton Glaser
are the most recognized and celebrated designers of our time.

Sinner Comes Back Home

Last week, after not seeing each other for 40 years, I saw Jose Munoz again at the opening of his show HISTORIETAS: A Constellation of Meanings at the Scott Eder Gallery.
And I got this two beautiful dedications in my favorite episodes of Alack Sinner which he created with the writer Carlos Sampayo.

Ms. Gloria

Every day something happens in New York. Very often something good, but very rarely right in front of your studio. Today in front of our studio there was a street co-naming event. Our East 32nd Street and Third Avenue became "Ms Magazine Way" because Ms. Magazine was established in our building. Actually on the same floor where my studio is (appropriately marked in pink).
The first publisher and editor of the magazine, Gloria Steinem gave a speech and helped unveil the name of the street. That gave me a chance to talk to Gloria and take a picture with her. For me this was quite special because Gloria was one of the first people whom I met in 1986 when I came to New York. Through these years we have seen each other from time to time, but this was something quite special.
