Powerful Posters

17 May 2013

H025-IBM-570x889

Paul Rand’s iconic, genius-in-its-simplicity poster for IBM (above) is one of the many great designs of the last 50 years, collected by Graphic Design magazine. Some are immediately familiar – Milton Glaser’s psychedelic Bob Dylan poster, and Shepard Fairey’s Hope poster for the Obama 2008 campaign. Seymour Chast’s humorously powerful Vietnam Antiwar Poster (End Bad Breath) is also included, along with Steff Geissbuhler’s fantastic Alvin Ailey dancer font.

Braun

Innovative and renowned for its modern, functional design there are few companies with such a lasting and relevant design legacy as Braun. Curated by das programm, obsessive German sellers of Dieter Rams designs, Paris’s MODA will will be hosting an exhibition of posters by thirty-four leading graphic designers and studios challenged to respond to the iconic company’s systems design (classic 60s Braun designs are also on display).

Aisle one has a selection of images from the original 2013 exhibition in London.

bookshelf

From Wooster to Duane, we’ve moved onwards and upwards (technically downwards) to a new Tribeca office.

Packing gave us the chance to revisit our library. We donated some books to design schools, but have kept many others – their pages filled with memories of great people we’ve met, innovative companies we’ve worked with, and new trends we’ve played a role in. Our bookshelves are a tapestry of our work at Wert&Co. – a patchwork of design, innovation, strategy and technology.

One thing ties it all together:  the human element, the talent, representing the past, present and future of design.
