Furniture design is a branch of product design with a unique design process that may look a little bit different from others.

Reading Dyslexie

Dyslexie is a typeface designed by Christian Boer to help dyslexics, using letterforms that are “more bold so that gravity turns the letters the right way up.” The idea that a font can correct something in the mind is an interesting one; we all know the effects of bad typography. What if what we’ve needed all this time to solve illiteracy and dyslexia is some kind of super-typeface? Dyslexie has yet to really sell the world on its literacy-enhancing... CONTINUE READING

Chip Kidd Says "Go"

He’s even played the part of himself on the soap opera One Life to Live. I first discovered Chip Kidd’s work in Batman Collected, a book of Batman memorabilia. Designed and written by Kidd, Batman Collected opened with a short anecdote where Kidd was about to buy an overpriced and damaged rubbery Batman logo meant to go on the end of a stick; a “floppy thing”, that Kidd admitted was of dubious actual worth but of substantive value to...

Go: A Kidd's Guide to Graphic Design

And keeping with tradition, he says that he’s designed over a thousand jackets in Go’s introduction. There are some designers who may be disappointed that Go is written for children, but while the book is written on a fourth grade level, it’s not lacking information. Absolutely no space is wasted—even the copyright page is used to explain the history of the copyright symbol. And every page has Kidd’s wit and verve: “Congratulations, you have decided to open this book,... CONTINUE READING
