Jimmy Turrell // Graphic Artist

I recently found out about Jimmy Turrell’s work through Jon’s on ISO50. His collage style is beautifully orchestrated by use of photography and illustration. Jimmy’s style is very unique and if you stop by his website you will most likely find yourself looking at everything he has created.

Check out his portfolio here.

Meet the New Haven Math Club

Here is splendid ad for Gant Rugger. I found out about video by doing a little digging on the work of art director Albin Holmqvist who is also the man behind the amazing typography of the EF – Live the Language videos. Holmqvist really did a great job at creating the typography to complement the subject matter in a nostalgic manner. It really has that old fashioned feel which was achieved by the vintage filmography and type style and most importantly the fashion.

Perhaps by paying attention to this quick tutorial, the viewer may adopt a few pointers on how to gain an impeccable sense of style

New Contributor – Bruce Mai

I’d like to introduce our new JetstreamProjector contributor, Bruce Mai. Bruce is a Sacramento based visual composer who recently completed the graphic design program at Sacramento State University. Bruce is joining JetstreamProjector because he will bring a new level of design intellect to the blog.

Although noticeably contemporary, his work conveys strong qualities of Modernism and the Minimalist style through emphasis on typography, strong grid use, and simplicity. With his systematic, precise, and logic design sensibility he was one of the most inspiring individuals in our program. Bruce takes risks and is not afraid of asking questions to get to the core of a design problem.

Check out more of his work on Cargo Collective.

Blase Stamp Design

Designed by Karl Oskar Blase, visually the design is really working for me: vertical typography, strong imagery of the child, and the silhouettes of industrial-like buildings framing the image with subtle overlap. The accent magenta is quite nice as well.

Fighting Vulgarity

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Massimo Vignelli is one of my favorite designers not just because of the work he has produced but because of his design wisdom. His design philosophy is always so inspiring and gives a sense of hope for the future of design. Listening to his words in this short clip was really encouraging.

You have to train yourself to have vision, courage, and determination. These three things to me are very important. You have to work with people who have it and at the same time you have to have it so you can install it on people. You can excite them about it. You can show that you have a vision. You can show to them what they cannot see.
