After discovering a copy of the NYC Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual in the basement of Pentagram, designers Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth have set out to reissue this unique piece of history. For a limited time you can support their efforts through a Kickstarter campaign that has been set up. Starting at the $118 level, each backer will receive a copy of the reproduction which will include an intro by Michael Beirut. After this campaign, the book will never be reissued again.

I’m loving the retro stylings of Goncalo Viana. A native of Lisbon, he originally studied architecture, but discovered his true passion lies with illustration. His portfolio is filled with dense, layered compositions brimming with geometric shapes and brilliant imagery.
Dirk Laucke and Johanna Siebein are the creative minds behind the award-winning Studio Laucke Siebein. With offices in Berlin and Amsterdam they focus on branding and interactive projects for corporate and cultural institutions. In addition to their design practice, the dynamic duo are visiting tutors at the ‘Hochschule für Künste Bremen’/Germany.
Made You Look is a documentary about the UK DIY graphic arts scene of the 21st century. Via candid interviews with top British creatives, publishers and agency owners the film explores the fact that more people than ever seem to be turning to analogue means of creating things, even though we are living at the height of the digital era. Sam Arthur, Adrian Johnson, Kate Moross, and Anthony Burril are just a few of the folks featured in this fine film.
Made You Look is due for limited theatrical release in 2015. For more info visit the official website.

Pavlov Visuals is a versatile design studio with an established presence in the U.S. and Amsterdam. Their uninhibited style pulls inspiration from the past, but remains fresh and contemporary. While there’s lots to admire in their portfolio, i’m especially drawn to their fluid line work and slick typography.
