On Tuesdsay, Designers & Books launched a special kickstarter campaign to reprint Ladislav Sutnar’s now classic Visual Design in Action. Published in 1961, the book has been out of print for over 40 years and due to it’s limited production, scarcely seen in the open market. If the campaign is successful, production will begin immediately and the book will be available as soon as this fall. To aid in the production, Designers & Books has enlisted an amazing team including Steven Heller, designer Reto Caduff and publisher Lars Muller. To support their efforts, please visit the official Kickstarter page and soon. Early backer discounts are available, but limited.

I’ve long-admired Jesse LeDoux’s work and his earliest gig posters with Patent Pending are what sparked my interest in design and typography. In the early 2000s he was the in-house art director for Sub Pop records where he created iconic cover art for the Shins, Iron and Wine, Death Cab for Cutie and many others. Since leaving he has forged a solo career where the same level of craft and expertise has continued to permeate his work. In his latest offering, Jesse has produced a Skillshare class that allows users to gain access to his vast knowledge of poster making and design. In the class, you’ll learn his favorite tools and techniques, preparing work for screen printing and much more. See all the details here.
