    Politically Neutral?

    "In an attempt to end the flag-pin controversy, Men's Vogue commissioned the renowned graphic designer Michael Bierut to design a politically neutral symbol celebrating the USA. "I tried to defamiliarize a very familiar configuration of letters," he explains, referring to his unconventional, interwoven font — inspired by the country's history as a melting pot. "A flag is a corporate logo. A monogram is much more private."

    Deceptive Design: Experiments in Furniture

    Exhibit @ the Chicago Cultural Center

    "The iconography of furniture and functional objects is often straightforward and simplistic. But, if certain qualities of furniture/objects are inherent for reasons of comfort, stability, use and manufacturing, where can the designer diverge from this tradition? Can furniture have other layers of meaning, purpose and use? With this in mind, can design be deceptive?"

    "The focus of this exhibition is to push the envelope of our common conceptions of furniture and furnishings and explore new roles for design to take on. Each of the works selected for this exhibition will employ a means of deception (visual, mechanical, material, functional, etc) and show that furniture and functional objects can be more than just comfortable or useful."

    Deckstools

    Recycled Skateboard Furniture by Jason Podlaski

    "I was inspired by the consistent way they were broken, about 75% of them were broken at the truck and 25% were broken in half."

    "The longer, more abundant "broken at the truck" decks seemed to be natural legs for the design and the smaller, less plentiful "broken in half" decks looked like they would make a good seat. After playing with these basic components for a while and incorporating an old skateboard truck to tie the pieces together... the current deckstool was born."

    The Typography of Chris Ro

    Chris Ro has some wonderful examples of custom faces with strong grids but I was really drawn to his ornithological rendering of Mrs. Eaves.
