1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa – Exceptional design for an exceptional price

Couldn’t help not posting this when I saw the 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa becoming the most expensive car ever sold: 9,02 million dollars.
And only by looking at it u stop wondering why…
Its design is simply mind blowing. It’s unbelievable what Sergio Scaglietti and his firm, Scaglietti & C, have done in 1957 with no drawings, just working directly on a wire framework. Enjoy the movie below and check out more pictures and details here.

Shape of a logo – Al Ries

Al Ries is talking about the perfect proportions of a logo. I’ve heard his theory before and it makes sense only from the readability point of view.

Paula Scher – graphic designer – “Type is Image”

Paula Scher studied at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and began her graphic design career as a record cover art director at both Atlantic and CBS Records in the 1970s. From 1984, she co-founded and ran Koppel & Scher in New York for seven years, then joined Pentagram as a principal in 1991.

Watch a short movie about a great designer talking about his work. It is worth it! Believe me! (again, be patient if u have a slow connection. u need Quiktime to be able to see it).
