The year in design, 2011
January 6 2012
With 2012 upon us, we look back over our most memorable articles of last year.
Steve Jobs, 1955-2011
9/11 ten years later
2011 marked the ten year anniversary of the September 11 attacks. On this day, we took at look at one design firm’s approach to commemorate the events of 9/11.
On Valentine’s Day, we talked to Marian Bantjes on her fantastically complex, awe-inspiring work, and on following your heart as a designer over money.
The Neon Boneyard
idsgn goes on the road and visits the typographer’s oasis: the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is here that onlookers can stand beneath a two story cursive signature, penned by Liberace himself.
The (typographic) future is now
Thanks to our friends at Typekit and Underware (the designers behind our typeface Auto) we finally ditched sIFR (Flash text) in favor of glorious webfonts.
The good and evil of infographics
With the recent explosion of infographics, Josh Smith and Deroy Peraza discuss how these visualizations can sometimes be misleading.
Keep calm and everything else
We looked at the origin and never-ending adaptations of “Keep Calm and Carry On”, as well as color in the food industry, the history of Myriad, how macaroni is branded around the world, and the work of Design Machine.
Thanks for reading idsgn, here’s to another great year in 2012!
