This is a two page editorial that I found in Print magazine. It grabbed my attention because of the two page layout design. It is an article about a product called Launched feminine care, and has a quite legible serif typeface. In trying to remove the yellowish tint I somehow darkened the whiteness of the image. I will try to correct here in the next couple of days. I was looking in earlier 90s publications to find something from David Carson and ran across this layout. I don't think it could be anymore polar opposite from what Carson was doing. It has a real conservative and subtle look to it.

When spending the week about thinking of listening to type, David Carson immediately came to mind. His work in deconstructionism to me screams listening to type. This blog post was found in a book about the work of Carson called "The End Of Print: The Grafik Design of David Carson". It is a design for Fox Sports net. I can just hear the crowd screaming a countdown, can't you? Even though his designs are not for everyone, I like to take a break from the norm time to time and check out his work. The deconstruct of the numbers is what really brought me into this image.
This is a AGI Congress and exhibit poster done by Staff Geissbuhler who studied at the Basil School
of design. I found this image in the book Graphic Design Referenced by Bryony Gomez-Palacio and
Armin Vit. This was chosen by the authors to represent some of Geissbuhler's better works. I found
the composition interesting because of its positive and negative spacing. The big bold sans serif type,
with the image of the chariot racer and horses makes it intriguing to me. This was designed in 2005.
Art director Helmut Krone laid down the guidelines for a line of Volkswagen advertisements where the image occupied two-thirds of the available space usually in the form of a small photo on a white background.This method made for some pretty dynamic and active ads. Other campaign slogans copied this idea that was first created in the early sixties.

I found this image in Graphic Design: A History by Alain Weill.
