Alan Fletcher at the Design Museum

Yesterday I took a stroll on the south bank and I first went to the Design Museum to see the exhibition of Alan Fletcher -one of the most influential figures in British graphic design. Alan Fletcher co-founded Fletcher/Forbes/Gill in the 1960s and Pentagram in the 1970s. He created iconic brand identities for clients such as Pirelli and the V&A and transformed book design in his role as consultant art editor to Phaidon Press with his spirited, witty and very personal style. Alan Fletcher died on 21st of September 2006. He donated his archive to the museum and before his death he was very much involved in the planning of this retrospective exhibition.

Fucked Up + Photocopied

My friend Rafael showed me this amazing book today. This book is a collection of frenetic flyers produced for the American punk scene between 1977 and 1985. As the introduction says"this book started with a simple idea and turned into the monster you hold in your hands now[..] Just consider this a celebration of the scene. More than an empty nostalgic gesture, the artwork, the photos shows you that the punk scene is a vast one.."
