With Peter Stuyvesant and others at the helm, a highly successful Dutch settlement grew up on the southern tip of Manhattan Island that was called New Amsterdam.The Dutch make up a tiny percentage of Manhattan residents today (although going &#8220;dutch&#8221; to dinner with colleagues is still practiced). Joost Swarte, a citizen of the Netherlands, is not only a New Yorker at heart, but a frequent interpreter of the city and its quirks.</span></p> <p><span class="_Tgc _s8w">If you&#8217;re lucky enough to be in Paris (which was never colonized by the Dutch) you&#8217;ll be fortunate to see Swarte&#8217;s exhibition at the <a href="http://www.galeriemartel.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Gallerie Martel</a>, &#8220;New Yorkers,&#8221; a delightfully rich visual poem about his second city.

From portraits of Bill Gates to serene landscapes, Hines has gotten a lot of rightly deserved hype around his work. Referred to as the “</span><a href="http://www.highsnobiety.com/2017/08/22/ms-paint-artist-pat-hines/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">high realist</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">” </span><a href="http://www.highsnobiety.com/2017/08/22/ms-paint-artist-pat-hines/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Paint artist</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">—his artwork is work. He has devoted 15 years to making digital art on the program, and each piece takes anywhere up to 20 hours to complete.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">As a master with the mouse, these digital paintings are more than a labor of love. They’re symbols of an era, as Microsoft recently announced Paint has been discontinued. Will we have Paint artists in the future? It feels like program and its users could be a relic of the past.&nbsp;</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hines took some time out to chat about his latest novel, illustrating with a mouse, and his favorite online tools for art-making.</span></p> <p><img class="alignnone wp-image-546561" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Force-Awakens-e1515380753654.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1214"></p> <p><img class="alignnone wp-image-546551" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Bill-Gates-e1515380736800.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1124"></p> <p><b>How did this all begin?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">Boredom and desk jobs—I was working an overnight shift at a Boston hospice in 2002. Facebook and YouTube didn&#8217;t exist yet, and I don&#8217;t enjoy Minesweeper or Solitaire, so I turned to Microsoft Paint to pass the time.</span></p> <p><b>Do you actually draw with the mouse or do you use a tablet?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">I&#8217;ve tried using the tablet, and have experimented with Microsoft&#8217;s Pen, but when it comes to my MS Paintings I only use the mouse.</span></p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-546559" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Red-Shirts-600x394.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="526" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Red-Shirts-600x394.jpg 600w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Red-Shirts-450x296.jpg 450w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><b>Is Paint underrated?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">I think especially in the last few months with the announcement that it was being discontinued &#8230; a lot of people are realizing just how beloved it is as a program. However, many professional digital artists and illustrators have told me I&#8217;m wasting my time with it, so it&#8217;s definitely underrated in that world. </span></p> <p><b>What version of Paint do you have?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">I use the Windows 10 version (the final one, I guess) for coloring, and a much earlier version for line art. I&#8217;m not sure exactly which version this is because I&#8217;ve transferred it between so many computers, but it has to be from around 2000 or so. I love the Windows Vista version, it&#8217;s my favorite one, but I couldn&#8217;t get it to work on my current computer.</span></p> <a href='http://www.printmag.com/interviews/pat-hines/attachment/untitled-5/'><img width="450" height="382" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Untitled-3-450x382.jpg" class="attachment-medium size-medium" alt="" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Untitled-3-450x382.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Untitled-3-600x510.jpg 600w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Untitled-3.jpg 818w" sizes="(max-width: 450px) 100vw, 450px" /></a> <a href='http://www.printmag.com/interviews/pat-hines/attachment/the-silver-doe/'><img width="450" height="348" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Silver-Doe-450x348.jpg" class="attachment-medium size-medium" alt="" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Silver-Doe-450x348.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Silver-Doe-600x464.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 450px) 100vw, 450px" /></a> <a href='http://www.printmag.com/interviews/pat-hines/attachment/the-arnold-arboretum/'><img width="450" height="328" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Arnold-Arboretum-450x328.jpg" class="attachment-medium size-medium" alt="" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Arnold-Arboretum-450x328.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Arnold-Arboretum-600x438.jpg 600w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/The-Arnold-Arboretum.jpg 1128w" sizes="(max-width: 450px) 100vw, 450px" /></a> <a href='http://www.printmag.com/interviews/pat-hines/attachment/my-street/'><img width="450" height="381" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/My-Street-450x381.jpg" class="attachment-medium size-medium" alt="" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/My-Street-450x381.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/My-Street-600x509.jpg 600w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/My-Street.jpg 1294w" sizes="(max-width: 450px) 100vw, 450px" /></a> <a href='http://www.printmag.com/interviews/pat-hines/attachment/mad-eye-vs-voldemort/'><img width="450" height="348" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Mad-Eye-vs-Voldemort-450x348.jpg" class="attachment-medium size-medium" alt="" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Mad-Eye-vs-Voldemort-450x348.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Mad-Eye-vs-Voldemort-600x464.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 450px) 100vw, 450px" /></a> <a href='http://www.printmag.com/interviews/pat-hines/attachment/ferris-bueller-joyride/'><img width="450" height="348" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Ferris-Bueller-Joyride-450x348.jpg" class="attachment-medium size-medium" alt="" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Ferris-Bueller-Joyride-450x348.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Ferris-Bueller-Joyride-600x464.jpg 600w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Ferris-Bueller-Joyride.jpg 1581w" sizes="(max-width: 450px) 100vw, 450px" /></a> <p><b><br /> What do you think of Paint being discontinued?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">At first I was a little panicked, but when I heard they were making it available as a free download, I relaxed a little. I have my various versions of the program anyway.</span></p> <p><b>Can you tell me more about the graphic novel you wrote and illustrated?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">It&#8217;s actually not a graphic novel. That&#8217;s been widely misreported, and I&#8217;m partly to blame because my style looks very comic booky. The book is just a regular prose novel with a bunch of illustrations. It&#8217;s a comedic adventure, mixing everything from 80s comedies like <em>Caddyshack</em> and <em>Animal House</em> to the horror movies of the same era, to stuff like <em>Harry Potter</em>. It took two years to write and a year to draw all the illustrations (all of this while working a full-time job).</span></p> <p><b>What is the plot or storyline of <em>Camp Redblood</em>?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">The story concerns a new camp counsellor named Steve Clarkson. He&#8217;s forced to take revenge on a rival camp after they viciously prank him and his campers. Steve&#8217;s a really meek guy though, completely out of his depth, so he enlists the aid of an older Scout group led by Leigh Carter, Camp Redblood&#8217;s resident badass. Together, they plan to infiltrate an event at the rival camp and exact their revenge. It&#8217;s very R-rated in terms of language and some subject matter, but very fun. It&#8217;s a book I would have lost my mind for when I was a teenager.</span></p> <p><b>Do you have a really steady hand? How long did it take you to master Paint?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">I actually don&#8217;t have the steadiest hand, which is one of the reasons I gravitated to Paint. For my line art I use the line tool, which is very forgiving. It&#8217;s taken me about 15 years to become as proficient with the program as I am now, but I still wouldn&#8217;t say I&#8217;ve mastered it. </span></p> <p><b>How long does it take you to make one image?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">If it&#8217;s one of my <em>Camp Redblood</em> illustrations, it takes anywhere between 10 and 20 hours. If it&#8217;s one of the paintings, like my piece for <em>The Force Awakens</em>, it probably takes between 20 and 40 hours. That sounds like I lot, but I imagine it&#8217;s not terribly different from some painters who work with physical media.</span></p> <p><b>What is the hardest thing to do with a mouse on Paint?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">I’d say drawing hair and water.</span></p> <p><img class="alignnone wp-image-546554" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Camp-Redblood-Summer-of-85-Crew.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1067" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Camp-Redblood-Summer-of-85-Crew.jpg 1799w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Camp-Redblood-Summer-of-85-Crew-337x450.jpg 337w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Camp-Redblood-Summer-of-85-Crew-450x600.jpg 450w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" />&nbsp;<img class="alignnone wp-image-546553" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Camp-Redblood-Book-Cover.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1067" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Camp-Redblood-Book-Cover.jpg 1799w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Camp-Redblood-Book-Cover-337x450.jpg 337w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Camp-Redblood-Book-Cover-450x600.jpg 450w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><b>What will you do next, art-wise?<br /> </b><span style="font-weight: 400;">Right now I&#8217;m halfway through my second <em>Redblood</em> novel, so I&#8217;ll be creating illustrations for that. I&#8217;m working on a few other projects as well, creating concept art in Paint. I&#8217;d love to do an exhibition somewhere, but haven&#8217;t put any work into creating prints. Time is always a huge issue.</span></p> <p><b>You recently tweeted to the artist who uses Excel to make art. I was wondering if you think you&#8217;ve</b> <b>started a movement?

I mean, ‘</span><a href="http://jimllpaintit.tumblr.com/"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Jim&#8217;ll Paint It</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">’ has probably been at this longer, and other artists made a splash with the program before I did.

A jury of expert critics selected this year’s 21 nominees across seven categories from over 200 longlisted recordings reviewed in 2017 by <em>BBC Music Magazine</em>, the world’s best-selling classical music monthly. The public vote is now open at the magazine’s website.</p> <p>This year’s nominations are wonderfully varied, featuring masterpieces and rarities, legendary figures and fresh faces. In the Orchestral category, <strong>Sir Andrew Davis</strong> continues the Vaughan Williams symphony series begun by the late Richard Hickox, nominated alongside <strong>Bernard Haitink</strong>’s return to Mahler’s Symphony No. 3. They’re up against an overlooked masterpiece: Franz Schmidt’s Symphony No. 2, conducted by <strong>Semyon Bychkov</strong>.</p> <p>Two vocal recordings similarly champion neglected works. Pianist <strong>Lada Vale</strong><strong>š</strong><strong>ová</strong> leads a celebration of 20th-century composer Pavel Haas, and <strong>Arcangelo</strong> showcases the Baroque composer John Blow. Completing the Vocal category is mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton’s debut album, <em>All Who Wander</em>.</p> <p>Another debut recording appears in the Instrumental category: guitarists <strong>Sean Shibe</strong>’s <em>Dreams &amp; Fancies</em>. It’s joined by pianist <strong>Krystian Zimerman</strong>’s first solo recording in more than 20 years; and violinist <strong>Fenella Humphreys</strong>’s <em>Bach2 the Future</em>, Vol. 2, which features premieres of specially commissioned pieces by composers including Sally Beamish and Adrian Sutton.</p> <p><strong>Joyce DiDonato</strong> and <strong>Michael Spyres</strong> star in Berlioz’s <em>Les Troyens</em>, nominated in the Opera category alongside mezzo-soprano <strong>Ann Hallenberg</strong>’s showcase of rediscovered Baroque arias and the premiere recording of Louis Andriessen’s <em>Theatre of the World</em>. The Concerto category also spans the centuries, starting with <strong>Jean Rondeau</strong>’s exploration of harpsichord concertos by the Bach family. <strong>Isabelle Faust</strong> brings together Mozart’s violin concertos, while bassoonist <strong>Bram van Sambeek</strong> brings us up to the present day with Kalevi Aho and Sebastian Fagerlund.</p> <p><strong>Alec Frank-Gemill</strong> turns the spotlight on horn music from the 19th century for the Chamber category, alongside a disc of Debussy’s late sonatas and early piano trio from violinist <strong>Renaud Capuçon </strong>and<strong> </strong>friends. Fellow Francophone musicians <strong>Les Siècles </strong>perform chamber pieces by Ligeti. And finally in the Choral category <strong>Vox Clamantis</strong> sings works by Arvo Pärt, the <strong>Prague Philharmonic Choir</strong> performs Martinu’s cantatas<strong> </strong>and<strong> Vox Luminis</strong> marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.</p> <p><strong>Oliver Condy</strong>, editor of <em>BBC Music Magazine</em>, says: ‘This year’s nominations are breathtaking, not only in their standards of recording and performance, but in their wide-reaching scope.

The ones in this book edited by Gill Saunders are but a small sampling of an appealing collection of hundreds still being produced. The <em>New York Times</em> wrote in 1995: &#8220;Some collectors maintain &#8230; that more than 300,000 designs have been printed. Four, and even five, colors are common. The wrapper is a sort of tissue paper, porous on one side to trap escaping juice. &#8230; One man has more than 24,000 wrappers and collects at a rate of 1,000 acquisitions a year.&#8221;</p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-546620" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-7-1.png" alt="" width="600" height="656" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-7-1.png 640w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-7-1-411x450.png 411w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-7-1-549x600.png 549w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /> <img class="aligncenter wp-image-546621" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-6-1.png" alt="" width="600" height="493" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-6-1.png 692w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-6-1-450x370.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-6-1-600x493.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /> <img class="aligncenter wp-image-546622" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-5-1.png" alt="" width="600" height="787" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-5-1.png 462w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-5-1-343x450.png 343w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-5-1-457x600.png 457w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /> <img class="aligncenter wp-image-546623" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-4-1.png" alt="" width="600" height="585" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-4-1.png 617w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-4-1-450x439.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-4-1-600x585.png 600w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-4-1-50x50.png 50w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /> <img class="aligncenter wp-image-546624" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-3-1.png" alt="" width="600" height="747" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-3-1.png 714w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-3-1-361x450.png 361w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-3-1-482x600.png 482w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /> <img class="aligncenter wp-image-546625" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-2-1.png" alt="" width="600" height="620" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-2-1.png 581w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-2-1-436x450.png 436w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /> <img class="aligncenter wp-image-546626" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-1.png" alt="" width="600" height="771" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-1.png 541w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-1-350x450.png 350w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-1-467x600.png 467w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /> <img class="aligncenter wp-image-546627" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan.png" alt="" width="600" height="588" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan.png 634w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-450x441.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-600x588.png 600w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-50x50.png 50w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p> <hr> <p><a href="http://www.printmag.com/design-competitions/regional-design-annual/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-545195" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20325-Print-RDA18-web-ads-800x90-EB.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="90" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20325-Print-RDA18-web-ads-800x90-EB.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20325-Print-RDA18-web-ads-800x90-EB-450x51.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20325-Print-RDA18-web-ads-800x90-EB-600x68.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/daily-heller/wrappers-with-a-peel-victoria-and-albert-museum/">Wrappers With A Peel</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> Advertising Branding & Identity Design Daily Heller Identify Packaging Design Steven Heller Orange wrappers vernacular design Steven Heller Mimaki battles against the elements http://www.printmonthly.co.uk/NewsStory.aspx?i=6308 Print News urn:uuid:da879b57-f68f-2fac-13b2-204713e2a8ba Thu, 18 Jan 2018 15:09:59 +0000 When Gate 7 decided to change its image, the global automotive component manufacturing specialists turned to Mimaki to take its production to new heights.

What inspired you to create the resume template?</strong></p> <p>A: Designers redesign their own personal logos and resumes, like a thousand times in a lifetime. I designed this resume for myself six years ago, when infographic resumes were not so common. It really made a difference and helped me stand out from others. I got my first two jobs with this resume and started giving talks to design students about creating your own resume. I shared it with them after each talk. When it was time to make a change and I knew I wasn’t going to use it any more, I decided to share it with the world. It’s crazy how quickly it went viral.

And from which parts of the world?</strong></p> <p>I believe there were around 300,000 downloads. It’s insane. I get dizzy just thinking about it! The link is in a lot of different places, so I don&#8217;t have control of that. But one thing I know—by reading the messages I’ve received—is that people all around the world used it, from the U.S. and Canada to South America (Perú, Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil), India, Russia, and Australia, and around Europe (for example, the one below by Georgian-Sorin Maxim in Denmark).</p> <p><img class="alignnone wp-image-546742" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/MaximResume-3.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1128" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/MaximResume-3.jpg 830w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/MaximResume-3-319x450.jpg 319w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/MaximResume-3-426x600.jpg 426w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p>Hundreds of people wrote to thank me or just to tell me they got a job with it, and that has been awesome. I truly&nbsp;believe&nbsp;that you get a job because of your talent, your interview and your portfolio, but resume content is critical.</p> <p><strong>What makes infographic resumes so popular and such a good way to showcase skills?</strong></p> <p>It’s simple. Companies receive hundreds of emails with resumes. Most of the time, they look at yours for two seconds. Maybe they are looking for a certain qualification or knowledge. Making your resume more visual helps it be readable even for a quick look. Obviously, the resume of a lawyer should be more formal, but when it comes to creative work, we have much more freedom in terms of aesthetics, and also functionally.</p> <p>Some people liked the template so much they asked me to design a new version from scratch. Most of them were not graphic designers, but industrial designers, artists, or even people quite far from the creative world, such as lawyers and marketing professionals. An astronaut even used it! And people are still reaching out. Also, my old boss—the one who first hired me because of that resume—asked me if he could use the template when applying for a new job.</p> <p>Having a good resume is important for designers, but you should also spend time on your Behance portfolio!&nbsp;In a resume, you have to explain how wonderful you are. Your portfolio,&nbsp;instead, speaks for itself.</p> <p><strong>Tell us a little bit about yourself.</strong></p> <p>I am from Valladolid, Spain, but I went to college in Madrid, at Nebrija University. When I was a kid, I dreamed about creating video games, so I studied computer programming. After a few years I realized that coding wasn’t my thing and I needed to do more creative work to be happy, so I switched to industrial design. I discovered the web/digital world by then and was fascinated, spending most of my time on it.</p> <p>After I started doing work as a graphic and web freelancer—and my early projects looked horrible, you can be sure of that—I buckled down and got more serious, so I needed a better way to showcase my work. I discovered that Behance is not only a portfolio site, but a place to get inspired, to see creative trends, network with the best professionals, build your reputation, and open up new opportunities. Behance is not only about work. It’s about connecting with people around the globe and even creating an amazing community in your own town. For example, recently there was a Behance Portfolio Review event at Neoland, a design school in Madrid. They asked me to be one of the experts and review portfolios. Thanks to that, I now have great relationship with Neoland and started regularly giving talks to students.</p> <p>I probably log into Behance more times a day than Facebook &#8230; no joke! Of course, as the web designer I am today, I look for digital projects. However, the most stunning and inspiring projects are the ones that are far from the web world, from my world: motion projects, 3D, art, photographs. Those projects make me think, ‘Oh man, I wouldn&#8217;t be able to do that in 200 years.’ Since they are not in my skill-set, they force me to think out of the box.&nbsp;Projects have triggered my interest in photo retouching, the clean way of presenting a project, creating stories from your art, and putting all the love and time in your personal projects.</p> <p><strong>If infographic resumes are now common, as you point out, are you seeing a new trend? </strong></p> <p>Yes, we are finishing that trend and starting a new one. When the sector was overloaded with so many infographic resumes, they ended up feeling somewhat antiquated. Free templates like mine made it possible for almost anyone have an infographic resume. But some of them became almost 100% infographic with little content, so now I think the trend will be resumes focused on good content, clean and minimal design, with a great use of typography, and infographics just only in the points where they are really required.

Klokobetz is a rich aural compilation, drawing sounds from African, Asian and European languages, and a compelling vehicle for Nosfell’s haunting voice. Barrault first became interested in the artist’s work, which includes albums, live performance, a comic book and dance pieces, when he attended a concert performance in 2007. After collaborating with Nosfell on a solo tour poster in 2016, the designer convinced him that a unique typeface was needed to express Klokobetz.</span></p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-546763" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-5.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="566" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-5.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-5-450x318.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-5-600x425.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /> <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-546767" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-Babel-4.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="566" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-Babel-4.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-Babel-4-450x318.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-Babel-4-600x425.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /> <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-546765" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-Babel-2.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="566" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-Babel-2.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-Babel-2-450x318.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-Babel-2-600x425.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Nosfell says, “My father spoke seven official languages.

Trying to describe the characters with roman type was never enough—I had to imagine more accents and diphthongs, so I started to draw signs on paper.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">After Nosfell sketched out how the Klokobetz alphabet works, Barrault began translating the drawings into letterforms, plotting them out on a grid and adjusting the shapes for overall coherence as a character set. The resulting letters are calligraphic, bearing a slight resemblance to the written Arabic scripts used by Nosfell’s father. They evoke mathematical notation and Hindi scripts as well. “For me, Klokobetz is a poetic expression of an extension of the soul—a phantasmagoria of what could’ve been before the myth of Babel,” Nosfell says. “It is a graphic and musical way to address mankind’s questions on language and its origins.”</span></p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-546762" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-4.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="566" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-4.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-4-450x318.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-4-600x425.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /> <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-546760" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-2.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="566" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-2.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-2-450x318.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Klokobetz-Nosfell-Jeremy-Barrault-2-600x425.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /> <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-546757" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/dunfel-labyanit-2007.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="566" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/dunfel-labyanit-2007.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/dunfel-labyanit-2007-450x318.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/dunfel-labyanit-2007-600x425.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Barrault says, “At first, I looked at many other scripts for reference, but I quickly realized that the project was different from all other typefaces—Klokobetz is a complete language with its own particular grammar and syntax. The alphabet’s logic is specific to Nosfell yet is influenced by all kinds of other writing systems.” To visually match the sound of the spoken words, which incorporates special throat techniques, silent letters, and subtle tones, the collaborators opted to develop a sans serif font where a slight tilt of the letterforms creates rhythm and acceleration rather than a serif whose typographic formality might carry too much weight. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Besides his father, Nosfell is the world’s only fluent Klokobetz speaker. He says, “The project is missing one thing that would make it a real language: being spoken, shared, even mangled by other people.” However, some of his fans know a few words and have even deciphered a large part of the writing process by themselves. Good news: This hard-core group has something to look forward to in the near future. Nosfell and Barrault are currently working on an artist’s book about the language, to be published later this year, that will include new weights of the typeface along with practical exercises, keys on vocabulary and musical scores. </span></p> <p><center><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/qQOaGdvFYQo" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></center><center><em><span style="font-weight: 400;"><br /> This video overlays the Klokobetz written lyrics over a song, &#8220;Babel,&#8221; so that readers can hear what the language sounds like while they observe how the typeface interprets it.</span></em></center>&nbsp;</p> <hr> <p><a href="http://www.printmag.com/design-competitions/regional-design-annual/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-545857" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20288-Print-RDA-2018-logos-700x174-1.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="174" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20288-Print-RDA-2018-logos-700x174-1.jpg 700w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20288-Print-RDA-2018-logos-700x174-1-450x112.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20288-Print-RDA-2018-logos-700x174-1-600x149.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/typography/designing-typeface-klokobetz-imaginary-language/">Designing a Typeface for Klokobetz, an Imaginary Language</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> Featured Notable Projects Typography invented language inventing letterforms Klokobetz typeface design Angela Riechers Print industry more fearful of labour costs http://www.printmonthly.co.uk/NewsStory.aspx?i=6304 Print News urn:uuid:0ecfdf50-25d0-82ef-52a5-2f54781e418d Wed, 17 Jan 2018 13:05:11 +0000 Despite many negatives coming from Brexit and its effects on the UK and industry, Close Brothers Asset Finance has conducted research into the movement of labour and it has produced a surprisingly positive result.

However, the French art critic Guillaume Apollinaire first coined the term in 1917. French artist André Breton fused forces with artists like Marcel Duchamp and Max Ernst, first wrote the “Surrealist Manifesto” in 1924, which explored the subconscious world, intuitive drawing and the avant-garde, revolutionizing art and design.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Now, where does graphic design play into this? Well, <a href="http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/s/surrealism-and-design/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">surrealism</a> was more than just a philosophy with a few French artists, it has grown to be a literary movement, and has influenced theatre, fashion and of course, design. Though it began as an anti-commercial movement, many surrealists made a living as graphic designers on the side to fund their art; they also publicized their work through their own self-designed posters, advertisements and placards. Here are seven artists, illustrators and graphic designers today who are keeping the art of surrealism alive in their own design masterpieces.</span></p> <h2>Matthew Custar</h2> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">The Minneapolis artist and designer <a href="https://www.instagram.com/matthewcustar/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Matthew Custar</a> adds a graphic, psychedelic, and even Memphis Group-inspired elements to his digital artworks, which can mostly be found on his <a href="https://matthewcustar.tumblr.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Tumblr</a>.

Peignot et Fils specimen booklet for one of the more elegant French typefaces ever designed, Les Cochins.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/typography/les-cochin-type-name-remember/">Cochin: A Type Name To Remember</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> <p>One of the more elegant French typefaces ever designed, Les Cochins, was produced in 1912 by Georges Peignot for the Paris foundry G. Peignot et Fils (future <a href="https://www.stthomas.edu/facethenation/fullcase_debernypeignot.html">Deberny &amp; Peignot</a> headed by his son <a href="https://designobserver.com/article.php?id=7377">Charles</a>) and was based on the copperplate engravings of French 18th-century artist <a href="https://www.britannica.com/biography/Charles-Nicolas-Cochin-the-Younger">Charles-Nicolas Cochin</a>, from which the typeface also takes its name. The font has a small x-height with long ascenders. Georges Peignot also created the design <a href="https://www.linotype.com/90038/nicolas-cochin-family.html">Nicolas-Cochin</a> as a looser variation in the same style. The Cochins were used for headlines and captions in <a href="http://centerforbookarts.org/tuesday-typefaces-cochin/"><em>Rolling Stone</em> </a>during the early years and then in the late 1980s. It retains a timeless elegance—an all too common phrase but with true significance in the type universe. Below is an excerpt from the original G. Peignot et Fils specimen booklet.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-545904" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Scan-5-6.48.50-PM-1.jpeg" alt="" width="492" height="617"

Full-bleed landscape photography inspired by&nbsp;<em>National Geographic</em>&nbsp;images from the ’50 and ’60s wraps the cans, depicting locations that tie into the names of the beers. “The photography style is the most major piece,” says Gamut principal Ian Gordon. For each photo to be consistent, it’s treated with a preset that gives it a classic autochrome look that’s then printed on an adhesive-backed label.</span></p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Fieldwork_Cans_Row.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-546671" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Fieldwork_Cans_Row.jpg" alt="" width="850" height="378" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Fieldwork_Cans_Row.jpg 9000w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Fieldwork_Cans_Row-450x200.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Fieldwork_Cans_Row-600x267.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 850px) 100vw, 850px" /></a></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Gamut is designing roughly six Fieldwork cans every week, all bringing to life their “adventures to go” theme, with inspiration drawn from topographic maps and legends. “There aren’t a lot of breweries releasing new and different beers at such a fast pace as Fieldwork is, which they’re able to do because the packaging process for beer has [become] a lot more streamlined in the past couple years,” Gordon says.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">In order to support and sustain this brand concept, Gamut developed naming guidelines for future beers so that the photo-driven theme could be brought to life with each new brew. “Since that time, the names have taken on a life of their&nbsp;own, subject to the brewers’ whimsy and what the beer means to [them],” Gordon says. For instance, the beer Tiger Uppercut references the character Sagat’s special move in the game “Street Fighter II.” A photo of Temple of the Reclining Buddha in Thailand was&nbsp;selected for the can since it’s featured in Sagat’s scene in the game.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">It’s clear that Gamut has hit a sweet spot in both keeping things interesting and cohesive, all while hitting deadlines to keep up with the breakneck pace of their prolific client.</span></p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Fieldwork_Cans_KingCitra.jpg"><img

This requires me to review dozens if not hundreds of portfolios on a weekly basis. It’s been my main source of inspiration.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">I find the work that’s different from my personal style especially inspiring. It’s not necessarily my aesthetic, but I think that’s where you learn the most.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Apart from looking at other creatives’ work, I also find my inspiration outside the design world. Contemporary art, modernist architecture, movies, traveling … any new experience is a great source of inspiration and motivates me to try new things.</span></p> <a href='http://www.printmag.com/designer-profiles/designer-of-the-week-lu-yu/attachment/nyc_illustation/'><img width="600" height="450" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/NYC_illustation-600x450.jpg" class="attachment-large size-large" alt="" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/NYC_illustation-600x450.jpg 600w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/NYC_illustation-450x338.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/NYC_illustation.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></a> <a href='http://www.printmag.com/designer-profiles/designer-of-the-week-lu-yu/attachment/positive_words/'><img width="600" height="424" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/positive_words-600x424.jpg" class="attachment-large size-large" alt="" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/positive_words-600x424.jpg 600w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/positive_words-450x318.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/positive_words.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></a> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><b>Who are some of your favorite designers or artists?</b></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Ask me on a different day of the week and I’ll have different answers. <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f642.png" alt=" Designer Profiles Imprint: Print Magazine's Design Blog Designer of the Week lu yu Amanda Aszman Graphtec GB deal https://www.imagereportsmag.co.uk/news/8659-graphtec-gb-deal Print News urn:uuid:28159ec2-50f4-3300-0876-380630d009bc Fri, 12 Jan 2018 10:06:42 +0000 Following a worldwide agreement recently concluded between Graphtec in Japan and SAi, all graphtec cutters supplied to the UK and Ireland by Graphtec GB will now be available as standard with a choice of the three software packages that came out of the deal.
