I’m sure many of you, myself included, are influenced by the mid-century greats, such as Alexander Girard, Charley Harper, Saul Bass, Paul Rand, etc… There’s a great new book out by Gestalten that documents what they are calling “Naive” graphics. There’s a great quote the book sites: “The naive is a childlikeness, where it is no longer expected.” Friedrich von Schiller”
Basically, the book curates an amazing collection of current graphic work from young designers that are rediscovering their techniques and themes, using silk screening, hand lettering, woodcutting, folk art, and classic typography.
All the color combinations are so inspiring! This is a must have for your collection, and reminds us that no matter what the style or era, good design is good design, and timeless.
