Helmut Krone, The Book

Graphic Design and Art Direction (concept,form and Meaning) After Advertising's Creative Revolution

Helmut Krone led the Creative Revolution which changed advertising. Forty years after he'd created the Volkswagen Beetle campaign it was voted `the most famous campaign ever'. His work is in the Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian. He has been inducted into Art Directors' Halls of Fame from New York to Berlin. Before Helmut Krone advertising art direction was either `old' commercialised art or `new' graphic design. And advertising was thought of as salesmanship. His thinking led into account planning, affected marketing and changed the design of ads. Krone gave us ads which command attention, are witty, understated and demand complicity to decode. He questioned all of advertising's formal devices: logotypes, headlines, body-copy and studio photography. He explored the tensions between the meanings of words and the meaning of images - still the way modern advertising gets us to realise new thoughts. The book shows nearly all of Krone's print work: graphic designs which modernised advertising and art direction - and changed graphic design.

Art or design, designer or artist: why be constrained by categories? Some Magazine from Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle tells of the intersection between these two fields. After running for three years, its editorial team under the guidance of Sven Völker has focused on the potential of visual forms of expression for the publication Some Book. Next to large format drawing machines by Eske Rex, it presents experimental carpet designs by Jürgen Dahlmanns and engages with early conceptual artworks by Lawrence Weiner. A selection of text contributions by Magne Furuholmen, Liam Gillick, Eugen Gomringer, Ellen Lupton, László Moholy-Nagy, Michael Schirner, Sven Völker and Beat Wyss give an overview over the discovery of the artist as a social figure in the 13th century up to his manifold entanglements with popular culture in the present. The book points to the varied and exciting perspectives for designers today.

One of the masters of modern architecture, Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) was a prolific and influential architect, a gifted painter, and a talented, world-renowned designer. In this comprehensive catalogue all his known works from the early 1920s to his final designs in the 1970s are presented and described. With the full cooperation of the Alvar Aalto Foundation, Goran Schildt has explored its archives, and some 20,000 letters, memoranda and contemporary newspaper cuttings as well as many building models, to ensure that every work is included in this volume. It contains full descriptions, accompanied by abundant illustrations, of all of Aalto's realized and unrealized architectural projects: regional and urban plans, churches, theaters, libraries, museums, office and factory buildings, public housing, and private residences. Aalto's design skill is prominently featured in his furniture, light fixtures, glass, objets d'art, textiles, jewelry, graphic design, and stage sets. The present volume catalogues Aalto's vast oeuvre, including many projects never before seen by the public, and uncovers information about Aalto's competition entries, his clients and colleagues, that is crucial to a complete understanding of Aalto's visionary impact on modern architecture, art, and design.

Conversations began as a column for the Huffington Post where it initially featured fashion designers. Author Blue Carreon would ask his subjects to answer a fill-in-the-blanks type of questionnaire on topics that touch on many different aspects of our lives—from personal rituals to alternative careers to thoughts on Botox. Discover the fascinating truth on who has resisted and succumbed to Botox, and those who wouldn’t admit to using it by their twist of words or vague replies. From Tory Burch, Carreon went on to ask a great mix of personalities to be part of the Conversations series. Among these include the style icons Ines de la Fressange and Olivia Chantecaille; fashion designers Diane Von Furstenberg, Rachel Roy, and Michael Bastian; decorators Charlotte Moss, Vicente Wolf, and Mary McDonald; and artists James Nares and Polly Apfelbaum. Through sixty selected interviews, Conversations stretches over the fields of fashion, interior design, and art. Delve into the fascinating lives of some of the world’s most creative minds and see just how many turns of phrase can be added to a single open-ended word like Happiness… Read their answers and you’ll be surprised at how the subjects jump so quickly from clever to funny to philosophical—or all of the above—with each question.
