Type Plus
Edited by Adrian Shaughnessy and Tony Brook / Published by Unit Editions

Abbott Miller: Design and Content
By Abbott Miller, Rick Poynor and Ellen Lupton / Published by Princeton Architectural Press
272 Pages / 8.6″x10.9″

Abbott Miller: Design and Content is the first monograph on the award-winning graphic designer known for his innovative work at Pentagram, where as a partner he leads a team designing books, magazines, catalogs, identities, exhibitions, and editorial projects, creating work that is often concerned with the cultural role of design and the public life of the written word. Collaborating with performers, curators, artists, photographers, writers, publishers, corporations, and institutions, Miller has created a unique practice that alternates between the printed page and the physical space of exhibitions. In his work as an editor and writer he pioneered the concept of designer-as-author, both roles he assumes for this beautifully produced and lavishly illustrated edition. Miller presents his work as a catalog of design strategies, emerging from the unique circumstances of form and content. Four categories: Books, Exhibitions, Magazines, and Identity provide insight into Miller’s influences and working process while showcasing his best designs.

30. Justin Pervorse Interview

Justin Pervose Interview on grainedit.com

Continuing our series of process related interviews, we chat with illustrator and designer Justin Pervorse. A Bay Area transplant via Atlanta, Justin has been relentlessly perfecting his craft over the last decade.

I first caught wind of Justin’s talents during his tenure at Mailchimp, where he injected his infectious personality into a series of slick illustrations and campaigns for the email giant. He has since moved on to Dropbox’s internal design department, a position that has allowed him to further expand his creative capabilities. Through the support of his peers, Justin and his team have created a series of self-initiated projects that explore and uplift the spirit of the brand. In today’s interview we highlight one of these projects, delve into his workflow and discuss his earliest days as a designer.

 


Lets start off with a little bit about your background. Where are you from originally?
I was born in the wonderful northern beauty of Michigan and after a short stint in South Carolina my family moved to the suburbs of Georgia where I grew up. The majority of my childhood was spent playing outdoors and building things with whatever random junk I could find. I always had a wild imagination that consistently led to me doing crazy things — usually playing with fire or trying to blow something up but getting into trouble was a regular occurrence for me as I was always very adventurous.

I loved to draw growing up but I never really thought about it as a future career. My parents were both creative in some sense but neither had any major background in general art. My mother did have a short artistic exploration in college so as a kid I was amazed with the few drawings she had kept from that point in her life. My old man had a very unique job in building ropes courses and climbing towers. It was definitely a bragging point to tell all my friends that my Dad built zip lines for a living and even better that I got my occasional share of zippy adventures. Though I didn’t understand it yet my parents were always very good to encourage me about my creativity and wild ideas.

Dice created for an internal office team at Dropbox

Moving into my awkward years of high school I started to take more interest in art and took as many drawing, painting, photography and computer classes as I could. I yet again found myself indulging in mischief in a printshop class where I learned boatloads about offset, letter press printing, finishing and a lot of other production techniques. I liked to make fake business cards, stupid bumper stickers to put on friends cars and the occasional weirdo mini zine to share with friends. Between print shop and photography I really started to find more interest in design but it was still a while before I found my calling as a designer.

When and how did you become interested in illustration and design?
After high school I considered college but instead explored a stint of playing music and delivering pizzas, which for the record is still my all time favorite job. I love being a designer but some of the weirdest things would happen to me on deliveries.

Playing music resulted in a lot of design work for my own bands and friends bands. I was primarily started off designing shirts, posters and album artwork which over time lead to a bigger breadth in projects. I’d pretty much take any work I was offered back then, even if it wasn’t something I was interested in or familiar with specifically because I wanted to try new things to learn through those projects. I still don’t regret taking the route of being self taught as it gave me a lot of options to explore different things, which over time led me to realize how much I loved to illustrate and thus my career path began.

What design project are you most proud of? and why?
This is a hard question for me to answer because I look back on most projects and I’m proud of them all on some level, even some of the terrible ones that I will probably never speak of. I like to think that I learn something new on every project and I feel proud that I get to design fun stuff  for a living in the first place.

A project that I am very proud of recently though was one I worked on at Dropbox for our annual Hack Week along with fellow designer Drew Roper. I’ll begin this by saying how lucky I am to work somewhere that I can take some level of my crazy childhood ideas and turn them into actual work. I dreamed up the idea to create a shop within the Dropbox office that would serve up made to order t-shirts for all the employees and attendees of Hack Week. It originally started around the concept of one of those bodega or mega mall kiosks with the tacky palm tree logo that sells cheap sunglasses and quickly evolved into a fully branded, built out deli that I named “Scooters Sandwich Shop”. We pushed on every detail with things like custom screen printed sandwich wrap paper used to roll shirts once they were finished, custom scratch pads for taking orders, developing an ordering system and even made a daily secret password system that would land you a secret shirt. We would broadcast our deli hours every day via email and would serenade a sea of people with a curated metal playlist as they all lined up and waited for their shirts. The whole project was crazy and sometimes stressful but its by far one of my favorite things I’ve ever worked on. In the end I am not only proud that I got to make that crazy idea happen but that it created an experience that brought joy to so many people.

We would love to highlight one of your projects. Could you walk us through Treasure Island 2090 Gift Shop Print? Please include the tools you worked with to achieve the final look.
I really enjoy designing just for fun sometimes and it usually results in trying something new. I thought it would be fun to think of a futuristic treasure island that is more of a tourist attraction and illustrated a commemorative print that would be picked up in the gift shop. I mean, why not?

 

Justin Pervorse on grainedit.com

 

I started with vector forms in illustrator and then worked in photoshop to get the textures and final color tones adjusted to make it visually look more like a folded up poster. I wanted to experiment with some vector textures so I used the Standard Issue Vector Textures to add some subtle halftones and some Vector Supply Sponge Brushes to add some subtle texture to the edges of the artwork. I finished it up in photoshop with some of my own paper and grain textures.

What were some of the thoughts that fueled the direction of the design?
I wanted to to stick to with basic shapes and some subtle line details so I could allow for the textures to bring more character and detail to the illustration.

In what ways did the initial concepts differ from the finished?
I actually just dove straight into this one. Normally I don’t do a ton of sketching unless I’m really unclear of where to start and even then its sometimes just a bunch of chicken scratch in my sketchbook or on post-it notes. I’d say it landed pretty close to what I had envisioned in my head.

How has your work evolved over the years?
I actually took a long look back at some of my old work recently. Some as far back as 10 years ago and I had a pretty good laugh. I’d say my work has come a long way over the years but I think the biggest evolvement my own personality into my work. I try and add some bit of weird or funny to everything I create. I think putting your personality into your work is important and makes your work more unique. It took me awhile to realize that as a designer but once I did I feel more attached to what I am  working on.

What are your passions outside of design?
I have a lot of passions outside of design but a lot of them still relate back to design in a way. I really love to cook which is truly just a different form of design and its art that you can eat. I can make some mean pasta and know my way around a grill pretty well. I’m also really into riding motorcycles and working on them. I personally own two and plan to own many more in the future. Riding, coupled with traveling and camping is a really nice way for me to relax and clear my mind. Some of my best ideas have come to me while riding or being out in the wilderness cut off from everything else.

Most importantly though is spending time with my wife and son. They mean the world to me and drive me to continue doing what I do every day.

Ty Wilkins interview

It’s rare that I come across a designer whose work has as much personality and charm as Ty Wilkins. Hailing from Austin, Ty’s portfolio is filled with character-driven projects that showcase his mastery of color, texture and repetition.

Prior to launching his own studio, Ty worked for Gardner Design, where he developed branding, packaging, signage and redesigned LogoLounge. He also traveled extensively, which had a profound impact on his aesthetic sensibilities. Currently, Ty can be found developing advertising campaigns, editorial illustrations and identity work for a wide range of clients including Target, Monocle and Wired UK. In addition, he serves as a typography instructor at the Academy of Art University. In today’s interview, Ty graciously shares his beginnings as a designer and grants us a glimpse into his creative process.

 

 

Lets start off with a little bit about your background. Where are you from originally?
I was born in Texas and grew-up mostly in Texas and Oklahoma. I graduated from high school in Buenos Aires, Argentina and attended college at Auburn University. I now live in Austin, Texas.

 

Ty Wilkins Interview

 

When and how did you become interested in illustration and design?
I love to draw. Growing up, I thought this meant that I would become an animator. As I started researching colleges during my last two years of high school, I realized that animation wasn’t offered as a major at any of the schools I was considering. Instead I discovered “computer art” and “graphic design” in the college course catalogs. I thought that one of these majors might be my way to sneak into the animation industry. I enrolled at Auburn University and after a brief stint as an international business major, switched to graphic design. While taking a Corporate Identity class I discovered a passion for symbols and logo design. The process of distilling complex information into a succinct, unique and memorable icon remains endlessly fascinating.

 

Ty Wilkins Interview

 

 

We would love to highlight one of your projects. Could you walk us through the creation of  your recent stamp project?
The tools that I used for this project include pencil, paper, Illustrator & Photoshop. I combined several methods to create texture. I visited my local public library and made photocopies of white sheets of paper until black specs started to appear in the copies. I inverted the color, boosted the contrast and repeated the process until I had photocopies full of random flecks. I scanned this texture and combined this with noise I generated in Photoshop and a texture from RetroSupply. These techniques help create the illusion that that the artwork was printed on paper.

Ty Wilkins interview

 

What were some of  the thoughts that fueled the direction of  the design?
My work spans both branding and illustration. Minimal iconic gestalt-like geometric shapes and limited color palettes are common threads among all my work. So when creating this piece for my studio I sought to capture these aspects of my work. I am fascinated by the way two dimensional shapes can suggest three dimensional forms. Three of the symbols are composed to form an interior negative space (a diamond, star and square). The dimensional T is the new symbol for my studio.

 

In what ways did the initial concepts differ from the finished work?
My initial concepts were more illustrative and detailed. I explored creating a line of environmentally themed stamps with more elaborate scenes of trees, fish and environments. After a few rounds I decided to create something that worked equally well for the branding side of the studio.

 

Ty Wilkins interview

 

 

What are your passions outside of design?
I love getting outside and being active. I enjoy hiking and biking during most months and when it gets hot outside I like to go paddle boarding and swimming. Austin has several great swimming spots. Two of my favorites are Barton Springs and Hamilton Pool.

35. Josh Brill Interview

 

Josh Brill / Lumadessa Interview

I was first introduced to Josh Brill and his work though through his Flora Fauna collection. With nature serving both as a catalyst and a muse, the ongoing series explores and catalogs the identities of plants and animals from around the world. To illustrate these explorations Josh chose to eschew conventional realism in favor of a style that echoes cubist techniques. The end result is vibrant, bold and visually intoxicating.

In addition to sharing the same passion for illustration and design, I was excited to discover that Josh and I shared a similar upbringing. We unknowingly haunted the same swimming holes and drank from the same slush puppy wells while growing up. This served as fodder to fuel our friendship and with this in mind, i’m delighted to present today’s interview with him.

 

 

Lets start off with a little bit about your background. Where are you from originally?
I was born in Norway, Maine and raised in the Lake Region area nearby.

 

When and how did you become interested in illustration and design?
When I was a kid, I became interested in art through pop culture including animation, comic books, skateboard graphics and video games. Though I did not know it as a profession, just for what it was, something fun to me. It wasn’t until high school that I learned that people do this for a living. A friend gave me some comic books to read and I loved the artwork. As I learned more about the artists behind these books I grew excited. It was hard to believe that people could make a living from drawing fun pictures. I told my mom I wanted to be a comic book artist  and she was generally supportive. I think she was just happy to see I had a possible career direction. From here I took the closest course in desktop publishing and to be  honest, I did not enjoy it. It was the early 90′s and they were still teaching the old paste up methods and the design examples were formulaic at best. This led me to take classes at the Kubert school for cartooning and animation before enrolling in Maine college of Art. It was here that I gained a renewed appreciation for the art.

Josh Brill / Lumadessa interview

 

When did “Lumadessa” come into being and what is the story behind the name?
“Lumadessa” took shape in the summer of 2003. At the time, I was still new to field and I didn’t have much client work to show. I was making short experimental interactive narrative art pieces in Flash, and I needed a portfolio site to showcase my skills. After completing the website I decided I wanted to create an identity that would compliment my work but also allow me to grow with it. I liked the word luminosity, because it worked for the literal side of art and the interpretation of light for creativity. The word “odyssey” struck a chord for me as well, as it implies the journey that art takes you on. From there, I combined the two words to form Lumadessa.

 

Josh Brill / Lumadessa interview

 

We would love to highlight one of your projects. Could you walk us through the Nature Explorer poster? Please include the tools you used to create this project.
I used Flash and Illustrator to create the vector art, then brought it into Photoshop and used RetroSupply Co.’s Blacksmith filter actions and brushes to create a subtle press printing with an ink bleed effect. Next, I added some light textures using a Wacom tablet.

Josh Brill interview

What were some of the thoughts that fueled the direction of the design?
I have been working on animal art for seven years and while i’ve enjoyed making the work, it’s a challenge to stay focused on one thing. Overtime, it’s caused creative fatigue and for this poster I wanted to head in a different direction. I wanted to logically bridge my existing animal work with my new found love of travel posters. I am planning to create a complete series of posters, but for this initial attempt I chose to create something that encourages others to embrace and explore nature.

 

In what ways did the initial concepts differ from the finished work?
When I started the project, my intentions were to create a Maine travel poster. Unfortunately, I became busy with other projects and reached a creative stopping point. When I came back to the poster, I toyed with other locations, like Patagonia and Acadia that might work better for such an iconic theme as nature, but each time my explorations felt visually forced.  I then realized that this project was more about nature as a visual symbol, rather then a place.

 Josh Brill / Lumadessa interview

What are your passions outside of design?
Wait a minute, there is a life outside of design? When did this happen? (laughter) All kidding aside, my job takes up much of my time. When possible, I love to travel. The next trip i’m planning is to Acadia National Park in Maine to do some hiking and exploring. In addition, I’ll be taking reference photos for a travel poster based on the park.

40. Sposnor // IKEA Time Travel Continues

The IKEA time travel experiment continues and this time with Jeff and Beth. In the 2nd installment hypnotist Justin Tranz guides a young couple through a series of challenging life events including a marriage proposal and a boisterous teenager. See the complete video here.

Justin Tranz has done well over 6,000 stage shows and is the only hypnotist in history to ever legitimately perform on Broadway. He has helped thousands in their bid to stop smoking, lose weight or attain other personal goals. He has also worked with medical professionals, corporate executives, and athletes in all sports and levels of competition.

With the Time Travel Experiment, IKEA collaborated with Tranz to put the spotlight on events that change how we live and our everyday lives. And in this film becoming parents is portrayed, which is one of the biggest transitions of them all.

Here’s a link to the first episode in case you missed it.

Fifty Years of Illustration
By Lawrence Zeegan / Published by Laurence KIng
384 Pages / 9⅞ x 7¾ ins

Or John Ordway, the colleague who walked with Lewis and Clark every step of the way. Each eye-opening story of these unsung heroes is written by a notable historian and illustrated by a top indie artist, making The Who, the What, and the When a treasure trove of word and image for history buffs, art lovers, and anyone who rejoices in unexpected discovery.

Paul Rand - Thoughts on Design

Thoughts on Design
By Paul Rand / Foreword by Michael Beirut / Published by Chronicle Books
96 Pages /  6 7/20 x 7 3/4 in

One of the seminal texts of graphic design, Paul Rand’s Thoughts on Design is now back in print for the first time since the 1970s. Writing at the height of his career, Rand articulated in his slender volume the pioneering vision that all design should seamlessly integrate form and function. This facsimile edition preserves Rand’s original 1947 essay with the adjustments he made to its text and imagery for a revised printing in 1970, and adds only an informative and inspiring new foreword by design luminary Michael Bierut. As relevant today as it was when first published, this classic treatise is an indispensable addition to the library of every designer.

Moonhead and the Music Machine
By Andrew Rae / Published by Nobrow
176 Pages / Hardcover

Meet Joey Moonhead. A normal kid in every way.  Except one… He has a moon for a head.

Life is a peach when you have a moon for a head. Your head can wander out of the atmosphere into galactic reveries, drift blissfully across star specked plains, roll lazily into jungles with undiscovered artefacts or soar closer than Icarus to the sun’s seething glare. Snap! Back to reality – the world of a teenage boy is a much crueler place, the taunt “crater-face” is a very literal insult and the cool kids have an unremitting supply of abuse. And so, as the law of divine providence state, when the school talent contest takes its yearly turn, it is the role of the outcast to take part. Thus, Joey Moonhead begins a stellar mission to create a music machine that rivals all those in existence.
