Jordan, who received a powerful ring after meeting an alien who crash-landed on Earth, has been a member of the Justice League, a freewheeling hero, and he’s even partnered <a href="https://www.dccomics.com/graphic-novels/green-lantern-1960/green-lantern-green-arrow" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">with Green Arrow</a>.</p> <p>Unlike the movie that explains Jordan’s heroic origins—a <em>not</em> very good <a href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1133985/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">2011 movie starring Ryan Reynolds</a>—the latest comic book avoids messy backstory, opting to jump right into battle. Beginning with <i>The Green Lantern</i> #1, <a href="https://www.dccomics.com/reader/#/comics/441053" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">debuting in November 2018</a>, writer Grant Morrison puts readers in an immediate and chaotic situation that the Green Lantern Corps must cope with and fight through. Opening pages of issue #1 do <em>not</em> disappoint thanks to Liam Sharp’s rich, layered, textured, engaging art and Steve Oliff’s electrifying, ethereal, <a href="https://www.printmag.com/daily-heller/gere-kavanaugh-colorful-life/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">exuberant colors</a>. It’s everything I hoped for, especially after some disappointing Green Lantern stories in the early- and mid-nineties.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p dir="ltr" lang="en">Pages 1 &#8211; 3 of #5 of <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TheGreenLantern?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#TheGreenLantern</a> in their raw&#8230; <a href="https://t.co/rugTc16Wqb">pic.twitter.com/rugTc16Wqb</a></p> <p>— Liam &#8216;Sharpy&#8217; Sharp (@LiamRSharp) <a href="https://twitter.com/LiamRSharp/status/1103058220279463937?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 5, 2019</a></p></blockquote> <p><script async="" src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p> <h2>New and Improved</h2> <p>I went into this newest Green Lantern saga with little to no expectations because of those older, disappointing stories, having lost almost all respect for Hal Jordan—as well as Green Lantern, and maybe even DC Comics in general. The <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerald_Twilight" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Emerald Twilight</a> storyline from the mid-nineties was a real punch in the gut. And do <em>not</em> even get me started on <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallax_(comics)" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Parallax</a>. The entire ordeal was a gigantic letdown for this Lantern fan, who became green in the face. And yet, if there’s anything fans like me appreciate about Hal Jordan and Emerald Twilight and (blech!) Parallax, it’s how it helped introduce Kyle Rayner, a graphic designer who became a Green Lantern.</p> <p>Having grown up reading <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_Age_of_Comic_Books" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Silver Age</a> and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bronze_Age_of_Comic_Books" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Bronze Age</a> <i>Green Lantern</i> comic books, including the spectacular <a href="https://www.dccomics.com/graphic-novels/green-lantern-1960/green-lantern-green-arrow" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Green Lantern / Green Arrow</a> by <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_O%27Neil" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Denny O’Neil</a> and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neal_Adams" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Neal Adams</a>, I have a lot of fond memories from reading Green Lantern. But what happened in the 1990s was not what I ever thought nor wanted to see. Never again.</p> <p>Fortunately, issues 1–5 of <i>The Green Lantern</i> are a welcome departure. This is <em>not</em> the Green Lantern that I grew up with and—most importantly—it’s <em>not</em> the Green Lantern that <a href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1133985/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Ryan Reynolds brought to the big screen</a>. Spaceships? Aliens? Aliens who look like bugs? Gigantic cosmic battles? If you want all of that rolled into one, DC’s <i>The Green Lantern</i> has that and more. It’s equal parts <i>Green Lantern</i> plus <a href="http://www.hrgiger.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">H.R. Giger</a> plus a little bit of <a href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2861424/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><i>Rick and Morty</i></a> here and there, with some <a href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119654/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><i>Men in Black</i></a> stirred in too. If you need more reasons to grab this title, there’s Morrison’s controversial issue #3, <i>Slave Lords of the Stars</i>. I’d love to say more, but I won’t spoil it.</p> <p>Green with envy?

What&#8217;s It Good For?</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> <p>&#8220;Seymour Chwast: Works of War&#8221; is curated by <a href="http://blazokovacevic.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Blažo Kovačević</a>, Associate Professor of Art and Design Undergraduate Director Department of Art and Design SUNY | Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY. The exhibition, which opened with a rare appearance by Chwast in conversation with me, was met with an enthusiastic response to the disturbing yet somehow ironic. When asked &#8220;Why are you obsessed with this subject?&#8221;, Chwast shrugged and said, &#8220;It&#8217;s always with us. We don&#8217;t learn. We just kill.&#8221; <a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_1-2.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-556834" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_1-2.jpg" alt="" width="2808" height="1872" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_1-2.jpg 2808w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_1-2-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_1-2-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 2808px) 100vw, 2808px" /></a></p> <h2>War as Passion</h2> <p>I suppose that an art historian could make the case that Seymour Chwast and his obsession with paintings and prints about war scenes and military materiel have something to do with a latent subconscious yearning for something or other. Or could it just be an interest in Hieronymus Bosch, Jacques Callot or Stan Lee? Seymour’s work is avowedly <em>Seymour’s work</em>, which represents <em>his</em> passion and his alone.</p> <p>War is one of those passions. When Seymour authored and illustrated his recent book “At War With War: 5000 Years of Conquests, Invasions, and Terrorist Attacks, An Illustrated Timeline” (2017), 100 years after the United States entered the Great War in Europe, he was not attempting to surreptitiously mask some grand philosophical theory about the abuse of power; he was just stating the obvious: horror and carnage have gone on too long with savage regularity. The illustrations in the book are not done in one style, but many befitting the conflicts he depicts.</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.11-AM.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-556842" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.11-AM.jpg" alt="" width="1388" height="1220" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.11-AM.jpg 1388w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.11-AM-450x396.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.11-AM-600x527.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1388px) 100vw, 1388px" /></a> <a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.40-AM.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-556843 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.40-AM.jpg" alt="&quot;Seymour Chwast: Works of War&quot; is exhibiting at SUNY Binghamton." width="1142" height="1212" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.40-AM.jpg 1142w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.40-AM-424x450.jpg 424w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.20.40-AM-565x600.jpg 565w" sizes="(max-width: 1142px) 100vw, 1142px" /></a> <a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.18.45-AM.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-556845 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.18.45-AM.jpg" alt="&quot;Seymour Chwast: Works of War&quot; is exhibiting at SUNY Binghamton." width="998" height="786" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.18.45-AM.jpg 998w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.18.45-AM-450x354.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.18.45-AM-600x473.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 998px) 100vw, 998px" /></a> <a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.19.18-AM.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-556844" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.19.18-AM.jpg" alt="" width="1178" height="810" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.19.18-AM.jpg 1178w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.19.18-AM-450x309.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2019-04-11-at-8.19.18-AM-600x413.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1178px) 100vw, 1178px" /></a></p> <h2>Hypnotic Chaos</h2> <p>This exhibition is devoted to his conscientious objection to War. Conflagration has become an obsessive theme throughout Seymour’s latest work, perhaps because his century (and ours) is filled with such precise destruction and demonic methods of eliminating one’s enemy (and friends). He grew up during one big war, lived through others actions and continues to protest. The paintings and sculptures in this exhibition – much of it recent – are not the typical antiwar revulsion as vividly depicted by Francisco Goya, Frans Masereel or Otto Dix. But Seymour feels deeply despite a curious – indeed paradoxical and discomfiting – whimsy to these massive canvases covered with jolly patterns of planes, tanks, soldiers and other lethal weaponry.</p> <p>Reminiscent of the way a child might draw playful battle scenes – they have a certain overt innocence and covert anxiety – Seymour’s paintings evoke the perception that war is at once frighteningly chaotic and disconcertingly hypnotic. The chaos is obvious with men and machines engaged in acts of destruction – and even in such a colorful and comic depiction, it is apparent that these are pictures of unthinkable cruelty. The hypnotic is more subversive. Seymour’s patterns are pleasantly eye-catching in color and form. They slyly lull the eye into fixating on a certain joy of process before coming to the realization that the imagery is about death. Seymour’s war pictures are meant to trick the viewer, sending a message that is as deceiving as it is cryptic. Seymour is a master of <em>cryptocity</em>.</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Presentation_14.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-556836" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Presentation_14.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="533" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Presentation_14.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Presentation_14-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Presentation_14-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_22.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-556831" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_22.jpg" alt="" width="2250" height="1872" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_22.jpg 2250w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_22-450x374.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_22-600x499.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 2250px) 100vw, 2250px" /></a><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_2.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-556832 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_2.jpg" alt="&quot;Seymour Chwast: Works of War&quot; is exhibiting at SUNY Binghamton." width="2808" height="1872" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_2.jpg 2808w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_2-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_2-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 2808px) 100vw, 2808px" /></a><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_30-1.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-556837 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_30-1.jpg" alt="&quot;Seymour Chwast: Works of War&quot; is exhibiting at SUNY Binghamton." width="2808" height="1872" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_30-1.jpg 2808w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_30-1-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_30-1-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 2808px) 100vw, 2808px" /></a> <a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_13.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-556838 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_13.jpg" alt="&quot;Seymour Chwast: Works of War&quot; is exhibiting at SUNY Binghamton." width="2808" height="1872" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_13.jpg 2808w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_13-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_13-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 2808px) 100vw, 2808px" /></a> <a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_9.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-556839 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_9.jpg" alt="&quot;Seymour Chwast: Works of War&quot; is exhibiting at SUNY Binghamton." width="2808" height="1872" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_9.jpg 2808w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_9-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/ArtMuseum_SeymourChwast_Instillation_9-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 2808px) 100vw, 2808px" /></a> <em>Exhibition Photographs by Marc Newton</em></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.printmag.com/design-topics/seymour-chwast-works-of-war/">War!

Before you know it, what started as a plan denoted by pencil marks on a piece of paper is emblazoned on everything from soft cotton T-shirts to letterhead and banner ads. For others, even some of the greats—like two of <a href="https://www.printmag.com/design-competitions/regional-design-annual/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">PRINT’s Regional Design Awards</a>’ judges—that journey to a career as a designer is wrought with a eraser smudge parks and crumpled pieces of paper that make way for something new, something better.</p> <p>A non-linear career path to becoming a graphic designer is something encountered by many. For these two <a href="https://www.printmag.com/regional-design-annual/regional-design-awards-2019-judges/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">PRINT RDA judges</a>, their studies started in different disciplines but were eventually drawn to their careers as designers. Although their stories are different, they are united by a found passion.</p> <h2><strong>A Sudden Awakening and a New Career Path</strong></h2> <p>You can see traces of Antonio Alcalá&#8217;s background when studying certain pieces of his work. Before owning his own studio, <a href="http://www.studioa.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Studio A</a>, he first graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in history. His work comes together like genetic material—his education in history and his own experiences combine to display deep understanding and appreciation in all of his projects.</p> <p>Driven by a yearning to communicate with meaning, Alcalá understands the importance of research when bringing a project to life, especially for clients like the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institute, National Geographic Society, and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. “My experience studying history influences my work all the time, but not in ways that are necessarily detectable in the final project,” Alcalá says.</p> <p>There’s a thirst for knowledge that comes with each new project that fuels him. “I am never bored. I am constantly learning new things. And I enjoy helping to create work that adds to our cultural heritage,” Alcalá says. One of those projects, <em>Harlem Heroes</em>, is a book designed for the Smithsonian American Art Museum. By researching the topic on his own, Alcalá took a deep dive into the cultural life of African Americans in Harlem, which in turn influenced everything from typographic choices to photography. “These small additions, a result of reading and research skills, help enhance the content,” Alcalá says.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-556756 size-large" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Harlem01-547x600.jpg" alt="A career path to graphic design isn't always a linear one." width="547" height="600" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Harlem01-547x600.jpg 547w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Harlem01-411x450.jpg 411w" sizes="(max-width: 547px) 100vw, 547px" /></p> <p>But why did this Yale graduate with a history degree choose to pursue a career path in design? “Design is enjoyable,” Alcalá answers very matter of factly. After graduating from college with that degree in history, he had no clear vision for what his future looked like. Many with a history degree either pursued graduate or law school, neither of which he found appealing.</p> <p>Little did he know that a gift from his grandparents in high school—a calligraphy pen kit—would continue to draw out further interests leading to design. For some time, he set aside such artistic interests in pursuit of academics of a different stripe, but an off-campus calligraphy course his junior year of college beckoned him. Then, the instructor of a course in drawing and printmaking took note of Alcalá’s enthusiasm and work ethic, noting that he was definitely not destined to a career in fine art&#8230;but he did ask if Alcalá had heard of graphic design.</p> <p>“By the end of the summer, I began to see the possibilities of other options besides history,” Alcalá says. He went on to Yale School of Art to earn an M.F.A. in graphic design and later opened Studio A in 1988.

Before you know it, what started as a plan denoted by pencil marks on a piece of paper is emblazoned on everything from soft cotton T-shirts to letterhead and banner ads. For others, even some of the greats—like two of <a href="https://www.printmag.com/design-competitions/regional-design-annual/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">PRINT’s Regional Design Awards</a>’ judges—that journey to a career as a designer is wrought with a eraser smudge parks and crumpled pieces of paper that make way for something new, something better.</p> <p>A non-linear career path to becoming a graphic designer is something encountered by many. For these two <a href="https://www.printmag.com/regional-design-annual/regional-design-awards-2019-judges/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">PRINT RDA judges</a>, their studies started in different disciplines but were eventually drawn to their careers as designers. Although their stories are different, they are united by a found passion.</p> <h2><strong>A Sudden Awakening and a New Career Path</strong></h2> <p>You can see traces of Antonio Alcalá&#8217;s background when studying certain pieces of his work. Before owning his own studio, <a href="http://www.studioa.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Studio A</a>, he first graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in history. His work comes together like genetic material—his education in history and his own experiences combine to display deep understanding and appreciation in all of his projects.</p> <p>Driven by a yearning to communicate with meaning, Alcalá understands the importance of research when bringing a project to life, especially for clients like the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institute, National Geographic Society, and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. “My experience studying history influences my work all the time, but not in ways that are necessarily detectable in the final project,” Alcalá says.</p> <p>There’s a thirst for knowledge that comes with each new project that fuels him. “I am never bored. I am constantly learning new things. And I enjoy helping to create work that adds to our cultural heritage,” Alcalá says. One of those projects, <em>Harlem Heroes</em>, is a book designed for the Smithsonian American Art Museum. By researching the topic on his own, Alcalá took a deep dive into the cultural life of African Americans in Harlem, which in turn influenced everything from typographic choices to photography. “These small additions, a result of reading and research skills, help enhance the content,” Alcalá says.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-556756 size-large" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Harlem01-547x600.jpg" alt="A career path to graphic design isn't always a linear one." width="547" height="600" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Harlem01-547x600.jpg 547w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/Harlem01-411x450.jpg 411w" sizes="(max-width: 547px) 100vw, 547px" /></p> <p>But why did this Yale graduate with a history degree choose to pursue a career path in design? “Design is enjoyable,” Alcalá answers very matter of factly. After graduating from college with that degree in history, he had no clear vision for what his future looked like. Many with a history degree either pursued graduate or law school, neither of which he found appealing.</p> <p>Little did he know that a gift from his grandparents in high school—a calligraphy pen kit—would continue to draw out further interests leading to design. For some time, he set aside such artistic interests in pursuit of academics of a different stripe, but an off-campus calligraphy course his junior year of college beckoned him. Then, the instructor of a course in drawing and printmaking took note of Alcalá’s enthusiasm and work ethic, noting that he was definitely not destined to a career in fine art&#8230;but he did ask if Alcalá had heard of graphic design.</p> <p>“By the end of the summer, I began to see the possibilities of other options besides history,” Alcalá says. He went on to Yale School of Art to earn an M.F.A. in graphic design and later opened Studio A in 1988. It’s safe to say that the rest is history.</p> <h2>Your Path is Your Story</h2> <p>Sam Eckersley, founding partner of <a href="https://red-partners.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">RED Partners</a>, first finished his undergrad in advertising and, at the time, imagined himself climbing the ladder at a large agency like Leo Burnett or Landor.

But even in those nascent days of American democracy, there were conventions, the primary election season, and, therefore, political asses.

Are you an in-house designer looking to start freelancing? A print designer who wants to learn web design? Choose sessions that will expand your skills and inspire your best work—not just those that look like “fun.” And remember: If you’re sitting in a session and it’s not doing it for you, you can quietly duck out and head for another.&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Plan to record your experience.</strong></h2> <p>However you like to take notes and capture ideas, plan to do that in spades at HOW Design Live. Bring a notebook, a sketchbook, your phone with charger and backup charger so you don&#8217;t run out of juice at any time. “I take notes like a writer would take notes. If the session is highly visual, I also pull out my camera and constantly shoot the screen,” says veteran HOW Design Conference attendee Karen Larson. “I want to walk away with a notebook full so that I can remember almost everything about every session I attend.”</p> <h2><strong>Be in the moment.</strong></h2> <p>Yes, four days is a long time to be away from the office. To the extent you can, leave work at work and simply immerse yourself in the HOW atmosphere. Use technology to record and communicate your experience (share via the #HOWLive hashtag on Twitter), but don’t let it interrupt your conversations or get in the way of your experience.</p> <h2><strong>Put yourself out there.</strong></h2> <p>Perhaps the biggest benefit to attending HOW Design Live is connecting with other creatives. To do that, you have to get out of your shell. Longtime HOW Design Conference speaker&nbsp;<a href="https://www.howdesignlive.com/speakers/stefan-mumaw" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Stefan Mumaw</a> says, “In any extended experience like HOW, it takes a few days to take off that mask. My advice: Take off the mask as soon as you arrive. We are <em>all</em> uncool—just accept it and get whatever you need from the experience, whether that is information, affirmation, encouragement, empathy, commiseration or inspiration. Approach a speaker and strike up a conversation. Ask for lunch dates. Make quick friends. Leave anonymous notes around the hotel bar.”</p> <h2><strong>Bring a big stack of business cards—and plan to give them all away.</strong></h2> <p>Brad Dressler, a HOW Design Conference regular, observes that not everyone is great at networking. “But I speak from years of experience that you’ll make both lifelong friends and tons of business contacts,” he says.</p> <h2><strong>Manage your energy.</strong></h2> <p>Conference days are full of information and inspiration; you’ll feel like you’re drinking from a fire hose. Pay attention to your energy level, and take short breaks to decompress as needed. Pack along energy bars to keep you going between meals. Connect with a small group to head out for lunch or dinner.</p> <h2><strong>Be a sponge.</strong></h2> <p>“A lot of us are the ‘experts’ in our companies, agencies, even our circles of friends. We spend a lot of time educating, coaching and mentoring others,” says <a href="http://www.howdesign.com/featured/whats-design-live-keith-smith/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Keith Smith</a>, another regular on the HOW circuit. “HOW Design Live is an opportunity to take a break from being the ‘smartest kid in class.’ I relish the chances to ask questions of speakers, attendees, vendors and creatives from non-related industries.”</p> <h2><strong>Keep an ear out for great advice.&nbsp;</strong></h2> <p>Given the lineup at this year&#8217;s event, particularly among the <a href="https://www.howdesignlive.com/conference/schedule" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">HOW Leadership Conference</a> and the <a href="https://www.howdesignlive.com/conference/speakers" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">keynote</a> presentations, you&#8217;ll be hearing from some razor-sharp people. Even speakers from outside your particular discipline can teach you well. In-House Management Conference speaker Justin Knecht recalls a session he attended several years ago presented by DJ Stout from Pentagram. “Someone asked a question about, ‘How do you choose the projects you work on?’ He said there was a magic triad of ‘good people, good work and good money’ and at least two needed to be present to take on the work.

Steven Heller came across from Japanese ephemera, and he shares it all right here.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.printmag.com/advertising-2/non-latin-letter-forms/">The Sublimity Of Illiteracy</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> <p>Western designers, like me, are so besotted by the Latin Alphabet born of the Trajan inscription, we have long been myopic when it comes to seeing the non-exclusivity of other-than-Latin letter forms, alphabets and typefaces. To the Western eye, characters that do not conform to our familiar writing and printing styles are alien patterns and abstract designs.</p> <p>Type was not even invented in the West and non-Latin characters comprise the majority of the world&#8217;s alphabets. In large part, owing to the computer font-making programs, non-Latin letter forms are currently <a href="https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/where-latin-and-arabic-meet-a-bridging-of-two-alphabets" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">enjoying a renaissance</a> throughout the world.</p> <p>I found that out recently through the patient wisdom of a Japanese ephemera dealer who sold me the material shown here. I&#8217;ve collected &#8220;foreign&#8221; documents before, but his enthusiasm for this otherwise ephemeral commercial typography triggered my own excitement and embraced my own illiteracy. This a pretentious, long-winded, pseudo-intellectual way of saying that these Japanese characters on paper, lovingly collected sometime in the postwar 40s in this sublime scrapbook of mid-twentieth century labels, while foreign to me, are nonetheless sensual and poetic in and out of any translatable context. It is humbling to see them. It&#8217;s frustrating not to be equipped with language to understand them. I won&#8217;t even try. Instead, I simply present them here free from Google translation for your visual enjoyment and mine too.</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/japanese-labels001.jpg"><img
