As editorial director at AIGA, I keep tabs on all the design news (so you don’t have to) and bring you only the best bits. Behold: my weekly hit list of the most interesting things I’ve and seen, read, and watched this week. Follow along all day every day on Instagram @AIGAdesign and Twitter @AIGAdesign.
This week I…
…offer these hopeful words to anyone who thinks the best years of design are behind us—and from notably critical designer (and charming curmudgeon) Bob Gill, no less—who makes the case that the way technology has demystified craft is very good thing:
“Now for a designer to make a living, they have to do more than just know how to set some type, because the client can do that. So what’s left? Well, the most wonderful part is left, which is to discover how you say new things.”
…didn’t even realize there was a big demand for a stunning shower cap, but for ladies trying to keep their hair dry while they bathe, the options are no longer quite as limited or lackluster. Art director Jackie De Jesu just launched SHHHOWERCAP, which works and looks wayyy better than anything else on the market. Even though I’m an avowed short-hair gal and have no need for such a thing, the patterns are so darn cute, who knows, even I might convert.
