Daniel Lewandowski has put together a wonderful tribute site to Paul Rand. The site is filled with examples of Paul’s work including posters, logos, packaging and more. There’s even a gallery section with slick photos of Paul hanging out with Bradbury Thompson, Will Burtin and his cat.

Kaufmann House designed by Richard Neutra in 1946
This looks like its going to be a must see flick for modern architecture fans.
Filmmakers Michael Bernard and Gavin Froome have created a documentary that will take you on a journey through three generations of modern architecture on the West Coast of North America.
This film speaks with the architects and their patrons, and asks if Modernism’s time has finally come or did it ever really go away.

The National live at the Tabernacle, Atlanta – concert poster 18″x24″
This week’s poster pick features another cutting edge design from Methane Studios. The overall design is simple and understated, but manages to remain visually engaging. The subtleties in this poster are exactly what make it interesting to look at. I really like everything about how the band name is presented and appreciate the sense of depth created by the paper knife. There is great use of space and type throughout , I especially like how the type is managed at the very bottom of this poster.
You can purchase the poster at postercabaret.com
Jeff Canham‘s typographic compositions are like tidal waves of cool; they’re like the Mavericks of type. His use of icons with a variety of type styles give the work excitement, depth, and sophistication. I love the sign painted feel and texture of the work, as well as the color palettes.
Graham House built in 1965 by Arthur Erickson
The passing of Arthur Erickson last week was as devastating as the demise of his masterpiece, the Graham House, in 2007. Yet the world still continues to be enamored and inspired by his modernist works, particularly his early projects such as the Smith House, the Hilborn House and the Fire Island House to name a few.
