In over 40 years at Braun, Dieter Rams established himself as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. His elegantly clear visual language not only defined product design for decades, but also our fundamental understanding of what design is and what it can and should do. Elucidating the design philosophy of Dieter Rams, Less and More is the ultimate collection of images of all of Rams’s products as well as selected sketches and models. In addition to the complete visual presentation of his designs, new texts by international experts reevaluate his work in a contemporary context.

Gabriel Jones wrote in to tell us about his recent project shooting for Arcade Fire’s new album cover, entitled The Suburbs.
These images where taken during a road trip in various suburbs in Texas followed by a studio shoot in Montreal where the selected suburb images where then projected on a large projection screen. The car and band members where positioned in front of the various suburb landscapes. This series of images are exploring a north American suburb experience and the memory that one can have from their suburban youth. A silksceen effect was added in postproduction. Gabriel’s images where also used for a postcard which Arcade Fire used to send out to magazines informing them about their upcoming shows and news about the album release. The series was art directed by Vincent Morisset and designed by Caroline Robert. Arcade Fire’s album is coming out on august 3rd and 4th.
Very cool design and illustration sent in from Anders Bollman, a student at Linnaeus University, Sweden.
