The Moulin Rouge poster was one of the first mass produced posters of its time. I chose this poster because we dove back to the roots of graphic design in this weeks homework. I actually got to see one of these posters at the Krannert Art Museum last semester. It was actually quite a site to see not realizing how large the posters were back then.

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

I really enjoyed the playfulness of the square motif in this magazine spread. I failed to write down where I obtained this layout from. I have noticed a common mixture of serif body type and a sans serif title while looking for blog posts this semester. Something I really did not pay much attention to before this class. The leading in the body copy might be as tight as it can get to remain legible. They might have to do this to keep the angles looking nice for the representation of the square. I really enjoyed the harmonious color scheme in this spread. It makes you feel comfortable and at home.
Neue Grafik was a shorter lived publication that was issued in mainly three countries. In English Neue grafik translates to "New Graphic Design". Its purpose was to be an international design review publication. It represented the strict philosophy of Swiss design, and even though it has been out of publication for more than 50 years it still is considered an institution of a singular approach to design. I found this image in Graphic Design Referenced by Bryony Gomez-Palacio and Armin Vit. Swiss design has to be one of my favorite design eras that is why it caught my eye.
This was an article that I found in Women's Health magazine. It talks about how popular women in society are going vegan. The type is mixed between a serif and sans serif typeface. The title page has a large V on it in yellow. Usually yellow wouldn't be a first choice in color because of its contrast, but with the drop shadow it works quite well. The opposite page carries a four column recipe for butternut squash. It is the imagery that really pulled me into the article.
