Jaye Rhee by Sp ct r / Sulki&Min

Another wonderful publication from the wonderful world that is Specter Press / Sp ct r design by that wonderful duo Sulki&Min. Here’s a bit of text from their site:

Jaye Rhee is a New York-based artist who regularly exhibits work at various international venues. Imageless is Rhee’s first monograph, which surveys her work encompassing video, performance, photography, and installation. The presentation of the body of work is punctuated by four essays: Carol Becker on the ‘Real Fake’; Raúl Zamudio on the ‘Art in Motion’; Sara Reisman on the ‘Performed and Crafted’; and Edwin Ramoran on one of Rhee’s projects, Bambi.

Robert Festino

Impeccable typography and art direction. Over 10 years in the game, Mr. Festino reintroduces us all to the craft of editorial design. Check out his latest work in Fortune Magazine.

The Entente

The Entente is a Brighton-based design and art direction studio formed by Anthony Sheret & Edd Harrington in late 2008. It seems their are quite a few neat studios emerging from this funky, seaside resort in the UK. In their own words “The studio is named after the relationship between both parties: ‘The Friendly Understanding’.”

Although it could be regarded by some as generally sparse, I think their is something quite appealing about their work. Like they have managed to strip away the sugar-coating, right down to the bare minimum aesthetic it can be, whilst still communicating a certain charm. Alongside the The Entente studio practice, an independent type foundry, Colophon Foundry is also run. Have a look around anyway.

The Evolution Of Experimental Work (And Having Something To Say)

I was listening to some archival podcasts from Graphic Design on the Radio, hosted by Adrian Shaughnessy, when I came across an interview with FUEL. I’ve heard little through the grapevine over the last few years about the collective, so I had a look around their site. FUEL have forever been notorious (since their inception in the 80’s) for filtering experimental work through to the mainstream with a flagrant negligence for trend-topping. Their work, in my mind at least, demonstrates a tandem stream of self-initiated and client work in seamless convergence. It is rare to see this process emphasized so blatantly today. Details »

Sulki & Min

While doing some random searches in our database, it has come to my attention that we’ve never done a post on Sulki & Min. During my brief time here in Korea, and the chance moments I’ve seen them, interacted with them, or seen something they’ve created, I’ve only walked away thinking the more they are quite amazing. I am only starting to now become adjusted to the design scene here and having now met quite a few designers and design studios, I have to say, this studio consistently stands out to me.

Henrik Nygren

Just randomly ran into this lovely book today and dug up some of this designer/studio’s work. It is quite simply amazing. Have a look see as time permits at the work of Henrik Nygren-Design.

Mediabus

Since being here in Seoul, it is ever so refreshing to find places, people, folks like this. If you have some time, check out the publications from Mediabus and better yet, if you are in Seoul, come visit The Book Society.
