Derek Birdsall Graphic Designer

6.30pm Friday 2nd September

Birdsall’s evolution as a virtuoso book designer is the clearest indication of the principle of transparency that he attaches to design. He is troubled by what he calls the notion of ‘the designer as It’ – as an egocentric expressionist (or Author as current discourse has it) – which is unsatisfying in practice, ephemeral in effect and ultimately even ‘tragic’. The preface to his

2004 book notes on book design – part reflective treatise, part technical manual – introduces

‘simply the decent setting of type and the intelligent layout of pictures based on a rigorous study of content’. This is the organising sensibility of all great graphic designers, who manage to contrive tension and sublimity within the exercise of reason.

i love the old photography look mixed with the printing design, giving it a old look but still quite modern some howl, gives a smooth affect within it

Irma Boom Book Designer

6.30pm Friday 9th September

Many of the most beautiful books to have been designed in recent years are the work of Irma Boom. Born in Lochem, the Netherlands in 1960, Boom has won international acclaim for the iconoclastic beauty of her books. Her most ambitious project to date was a book celebrating the centenary of the Dutch conglomerate SHV in 1996 to which she devoted five years of work.

With this Boom book, it looks massive but in reality its quite small, its interesting, i think, around us 2day we are more interested in the abstract designs !

Droog Design Collective

6.30pm Friday 16th September

Co-founded in 1993 in Amsterdam by the product designer Gijs Bakker and design historian Renny Ramakers, Droog has defined a new approach to design by mixing materials and interacting with the user. They called the collection Droog Design after the Dutch word

‘droog’, which translates into English as ‘dry’ as in the dry wit, or wry, subtle sense of humour that characterised all the pieces they exhibited.

i remember seeing this in london, and thinking this would look brilliant in my room ! where its so different u just want to keep looking at it

Graphic Thought Facility Graphic Designers

6.30pm Friday 23rd September

By defining a distinctive graphic style to a diverse range of projects, Graphic Thought Facility has emerged as one of the UK’s most influential – and productive – graphic design teams. Founded in London in 1990 by Andy Stevens and Paul Neale, GTF now works for such

clients as Habitat, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Design Museum.

The work of GTF is defined less by a distinctive visual language than the rigour with which the designers approach the process of developing and executing graphic projects.

Love the design within this outcome, its like one big light drawing, u have to use ur own opinion to work it out

Hella Jongerius Product Designer

6.30pm Friday 30th September

The Dutch designer works on the cusp of design, craft, art and technology to fuse traditional and contemporary influences, high tech and low tech, the industrial and artisanal.

Standing in the Design Museum Tank on the riverfront was a wooden table laden with food and illuminated by five lamps with ceramic bases and silk shades. On closer inspection it was apparent that the 'food' - a loaf of bread, fish, fowl, sausages and artichokes - was made from hand-blown glass and the lamps were embroidered with images of the animals, inspects and birds printed on the silk. Stranger still, the floor was covered in rich brown soil.

The furniture and book designs are brilliant, well looked into, and thought about !

M/M Graphic Designers

6.30pm Friday 7th October

Through their work as graphic designers and creative directors in the fields of art, fashion and music, Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak have established M/M as a powerful force in contemporary French culture.

After meeting at art school in Paris, Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak founded M/M in 1992. They have sinced worked together as graphic designers and art directors on fashion and art projects mostly for longstanding clients and collaborators – such as the fashion designers Yohji Yamamoto and Martine Sitbon, and the photographers Craig McDean, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

Alought this design and a lot of M/M's designs are quite gothic and dark, there in a sutle way so there not creepy, there designed in a way that u want to know more!

Jonathan Barnbrook Graphic designer

6.30pm Friday 14th October

Barnbrook is one of the UK’s most active graphic designers. Pioneering the notion of graphic design with a social conscience, Barnbrook makes strong statements about corporate culture, consumerism, war and international politics. Working in both commercial and non- commercial spheres, Barnbrook combines originality, wit, political savvy and bitter irony in equal measures.

I love the plain use of fonts, the block style really works within the design

FUEL Graphic Designers

6.30pm Friday 21st October

Combining commissioned work – typically from fashion, music and art clients – with self- initiated projects, the British graphic designers Damon Murray and Stephen Sorrell have worked together as FUEL since 1991 from a studio in the Spitalfields area of London.

With this design it has a feel of Swiss Design to it, may not be relevant hut i love the design

Stefan Sagmeister Graphic Designer

6.30pm Friday 28th October

Sagmeister is among today’s most important graphic designers. Born in Austria, he now lives and works in New York. His long-standing collaborators include the AIGA and musicians, David Byrne and Lou Reed. Striking to the point of sensationalism and humorous but in such an unsettling way that it’s nearly, but not quite unacceptable, his work mixes sexuality with wit and a whiff of the sinister.

I have come across Sagmeister before, it takes skill, courage and a proper designer to do what he does with his work, the design where he attally cut into his skin with type, makes me fill a little cold though.
