Anonima Group

“The American artist collaborative, Anonima Group, was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1960 by Ernst Benkert, Francis Hewitt and Ed Mieczkowski. Propelled by their rejection of the cult of the individual ego and automatic style of the Abstract Expressionists, the artists worked collaboratively on grid-based, spatially fluctuating drawings and paintings that were precise investigations of the scientific phenomena and psychology of optical perception. The work was accompanied by writings: proposals, projects and manifestos – socialist in nature – which the artists considered essential to the experience and understanding of their work.”

Some very interesting works that I highly recommend checking out.

IDEA Magazine 333

10 April 2009

p1468_001

Emil Ruder is one of my favorite designers..hands down. So when we got in these new IDEA Magazines at YouWorkForThem featuring his work, I got really excited. And with good reason. Issue 333 features not only page after page of Ruder’s work but also the philosophy behind Ruder’s pioneering typography. I think why this issue is important is that it presents a case for the design choices being made, something I see less and less of circling in the forefront of graphic design resources like image sites and published books; unfortunately the places a lot of students and young designers look to for guidance and inspiration.  Invest in this,  you won’t regret it.
