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.

108 eighth-grade students at REALM Charter School in Berkeley, CA took charge of their own library and designed X-Space. The activity was part of the school’s Studio H initiative, an in-school curriculum that encourages students to build socially-engaged projects. Yearning for a place to study, relax, and learn, the students conceived X-Space as a warm and welcoming place for  discovering “X.” The library has specially designed X-shaped stackable “STAX” that were made with plywood and CNC technology. To help fund books, construction materials, lighting, fixtures and technology donate to Studio H’s Kickstarter until March 27.
