Iranian artist and graphic designer Peyman Rahimizadeh illustrates children’s books, but I suspect many of his artworks have a much wider audience. Take a look at his work, and one, see what I mean, and two, be prepared to be dazzled.

I don’t think it matters where you point a camera in India, there’s always a photogenic subject right in front of you. That’s what I thought after looking at these images, anyway.

A new book, 100 Ideas That Changed Graphic Design, written by Steven Heller and Veronique Vienne, sets out some of the more powerful ideas and concepts that shaped graphic design:
From concepts like manifestos (#25), pictograms (#45), propaganda (#22), found typography (#38), and the Dieter-Rams-coined philosophy that “less is more” (#73) to favorite creators like Alex Steinweiss, Noma Bar, Saul Bass, Paula Scher, and Stefan Sagmeister, the sum of these carefully constructed parts amounts to an astute lens not only on what design is and does, but also on what it should be and do.

New York’s MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) has recently added 23 fonts to its Architecture and Design Collection, which were chosen on account of the significant role each had in the development of font design during the last 50 years of the twentieth century.
This first selection of 23 typefaces represent a new branch in our collection tree. They are all digital or designed with a foresight of the scope of the digital revolution, and they all significantly respond to the technological advancements occurring in the second half of the twentieth century. Each is a milestone in the history of typography. These newly acquired typefaces will all be on display in Standard Deviations, an installation of the contemporary design galleries opening March 2 on the third floor.
For anyone curious as to how an institution such as a museum can add commercially available fonts for their permanent collections, Jason Kottke recently interviewed Jonathan Hoefler of font foundry Hoefler & Frere-Jones – four of their typefaces joined the MoMA collection – about the legalities of the acquisition.
