Kalligraphische Schriftvorlagen von Johann Hering zu Kulmbach - Johann Hering 1624-1634 (Bamberg)
A gleeful mash-up of art, architecture and design, Woods’s work is fun, garish and immediate – an array of immersive structural makeovers that simultaneously derides and celebrates the human desire to make a mark on the urban landscape.
Right now the University of Washington Data Science course looks like it’ll be the lone survivor. I’ll probably have to drop the Stanford course since I’m already starting a week late. And yes, I’m taking a leadership course.
A diver has a very personal moment of dejection at the bottom of the pool during the 2012 CCCA Swimming and Diving State Championships at East Los Angeles College Swim Stadium on Thursday, April 26, 2012 in Monterey Park, CA. (Photo by Suzanne Tylander © 2012) This particular photo represents an emotional moment rarely caught underwater. This particular diver was expected to win the entire event. The diver knew as soon as he hit the water his form was flawed and that he might have just lost it all. I was fortunate enough to witness this moment as it was unfolding underwater. I captured the sequence of emotion just a split second after he hit the water and began to sink to the bottom with a sense of defeat written in his body language This was the image I chose from the series. I have felt this emotion and disappointment before as many athletes do. My chance to capture it underwater was rare but beautiful. It is a moment no competitive athlete wants to relive but something important that many of us can relate to. It is raw and human and real.
For years, I’ve found the similarities between these two logos striking.
At left is the logo representing the professional services company formed by the 1998 merger of Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand. (The designer of the logo is unknown to me.) At right is the logo for Yves Saint Laurent, using handlettering created by the famous A.M. Cassandre in 1963.
35 years and several industries apart, yet they both “work,” successfully conveying either elegance (as with YSL) or, well, just a really long name. Actually, I’m not sure what the PWC logo is supposed to convey, although I’d assume they’re shooting for stability, professionalism, and honesty. But I’m not sure how the wiggly “waterhouse” letters accomplish that. Maybe they just had to squish those letters together to make more room.
Too bad the few folks I knew at PwC never appreciated good design.
Lloyd Ziff. Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe, c. 1960.
