Monday scent of the day 4/24

Gucci Cruise Collection 2017

Don’t shoot the messenger, but it’s Monday again. Plus, International Sculpture Day, and the all important National Pig-in-a-Blanket Day. What fragrance are you wearing?

I am not at all sure if I’ll do a week of Gucci and/or Givenchy, but I am starting things off with with a dab of Gucci Flora.

Reminder: on 4/28, will it be Gucci or Givenchy…

Ellen Lupton: Quotes on Design & Typography



Ellen Lupton, 2009. Photo by Michelle Qureshi.

Curator, director of a graphic design MFA program, author, design critic, lecturer, DIY advocate and AIGA Gold Medalist. Only someone who works hard and smart could receive titles like this. For nearly 25 years, Ellen Lupton has been curator of contemporary design at Cooper-Hewitt’s National Design Museum. During her time there, she’s not only created numerous exhibits, but has also published several books—19 to be exact—including The Bauhaus Design Theory with J. Abbott Miller, Letters from the Avant-Garde: Modern Graphic Design with Elaine Lustig Cohen, Design Culture Now: Notional Design Triennial withDonald Albrecht and Steven Skov Holt, and plenty more.

Lupton started as a fine art student at Cooper Union in 1981, where she discovered the “expressive potential of typography.” After graduating in 1985, she received an offer to head the Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design & Typography at her alma mater. She accepted and merged her love for design and writing, resulting in impeccable curatorial skills. Soon after with partner J. Abbott Miller, Lupton cofounded the Design Writing Research Lab where the two combined theory and practice to supplement their work lives. Lupton is quoted saying, “We were young and had theories, so we created DWR as a thing where we could take on work with clients and do artsy-farsy stuff for the real world.”

As an educator and director of the MFA graphic design program at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Lupton created D.I.Y.: Design It Yourself with help from her grad students. The book’s purpose is to empower non-designers with basic design skills.

In 2007, Lupton was awarded the AIGA Gold Medal for “[making] this industry smarter.” As Katherine Feo says, “If graphic design has a sense of its own history, an understanding of the theory that drives it and a voice for its continuing discourse, it’s largely because Lupton wrote it, thought it or spoke it.”

Lupton’s voice has impacted the graphic design field for years. And now she’s bringing her intimate knowledge of the subject to Print‘s Regional Design Awards as a judge. The deadline to enter is Monday, May 1st. Below is a collection of quotes from Ellen Lupton—may they inspire, teach and embolden you.

Exclusive: Two Gorgeous Disney Prints From Mondo's 'Never Grow Up' Show

There are few things we love more than art prints released from Mondo and Cyclops Print Works but one of those things is Disney. So the fact that these powerhouses are teaming up for another art show is something worth celebrating with end-of-your-day-at-Disneyland fireworks. And the fact that we get to debut two pieces from that art show -- exclusively for you guys -- well, that makes us even happier.

"Never Grow Up," a collaboration between our friends at Mondo, Cyclops Print Works, and Oh My Disney, opens in Austin this Friday. (Quite frankly, if there aren't people already lined up down the street by now, I'd be surprised. You should have seen the line ahead of the last Disney/Mondo collaboration back at SXSW a few years ago.) Per the official press release: The opening night reception will be held Friday, April 28 from 3:00 - 10:00pm, followed by a special "Mondo Clubhouse" Kids Party on Saturday, April 29, from 10am - Noon featuring Disney-inspired treats, face painting, photo booth, and other fun activities! Following these events, the show will run during regular gallery hours through May 13. Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX.

The two pieces Moviefone is debuting today are astounding -- one is by Nico Delort and is themed to the climactic final confrontation in "The Little Mermaid" (big monster Ursula is barely represented in officially licensed merchandise so this is a big thrill) and the other is a lovely piece by Tegan White (who has become one of my favorite artists in recent years) themed to "The Fox and the Hound." And this is the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to the artists that Mondo and Cyclops Print Works have corralled for this new show. It's going to be huge.Mondo X Cyclops Print Works Print #15: The Little Mermaid by Nico Delort

Mondo X Cyclops Print Works Print #10: The Fox and the Hound by Tegan White

Kent Rogowski: Love = Love, 2006-2008

Love=Love is a series of collages that were created using pieces of over 60 store bought puzzles. Although puzzle pieces are unique, and can only fit into one place within a puzzle, they are sometimes interchangeable within a brand. These puzzles were cut using the same die, but depict unrelated images. Using only the flowers and skies from each of the puzzles, I created a series of entirely new compositions by recombining the puzzle pieces. These spectacular, fantastical and surreal landscapes sit in direct contrast to the banal and bucolic images of the original puzzles. (artist statement)
