A little late in posting this, but I recently managed to get a hold of Polish magazine Futu, guest designed and art directed by Matt Willey at Studio 8. Apart from the type spectacular which runs throughout the magazine, I thought the info graphics pages really stole the show. For anyone who's worked with quantitive data in the past you will know only too well how difficult they can sometimes be. This solution does away with any complications, presenting the information as a showpiece in its own right - turning the mundane into something really special.


National Theatre Posters

Poster designed by Ken Briggs and Associates, 1970

Whilst taking on the tiresome challenge of christmas shopping this year, I was lucky enough to come across the National Theater's online poster shop which I think deserves a big mention here. Apart from the boring part of actually raising money and selling posters the website offers a great glimpse into the visual changes that have taken place over the years at the NT.

I remember Simon Esterson's review of Ken Briggs’s National Theatre programmes in Eye 58 and was very pleased to see that his posters were also available to buy. Perhaps a little predictably, I can't help but feel that the 60's and 70's posters are the highlights here - happy shopping.
