Co-presented with AIGA Miami (American Institute of Graphic Arts). Two respected graphic designersâ€”Steven Heller and Louise Filiâ€”talk about their latest books. Hellerâ€™s 100 Ideas that Changed Graphic Design tells the story of how ideas have influenced and defined graphic design and, in turn, how those ideas have manifested themselves in objects of design. The 100 entries, arranged broadly in chronological order, range from technical (overprinting, rub-on designs, and split fountain for example) to stylistic (swashes on caps, loud typography, and white space). They also include graphic design objects (such as dust jackets and design handbooks) and methods (paper cut-outs and pixelation). Filiâ€™s book Elegantissima is a monograph on her work since 1989 when she founded her own graphic design studio Louise Fili Ltd.â€”including books, food packaging, restaurants identities, and her reinterpretation of vintage sources and influences from Italy. Her typography, often hand drawn, helped advertise and market such well-known brands as Sarabeth’s, Bella Cucina, Jean-Georges, and Good Housekeeping, among many others.
