Fête du graphisme 2 showin Paris is featuring is three shows. One of them is "We Love Books! A World Tour in Paris" which is presenting more then 300 books of 76 graphics studios from 25 different countries worldwide. I was extremely pleased to have two of my book designs, "The Anatomy of Design" and "The Design of Dissent", exhibited there. Cover of "The Design of Dissent" was design by Milton Glaser and me. All three shows are featured in a beautiful catalog/book, over 500 pages thick.
It was an honor to be invited by Debbie Millman to contribute to the 75th anniversary edition of Print magazine, among "75 of the best creatives working today".
75 creatives, among them Erik Spiekermann, Alexander Isley, Milton Glaser, Seymour Chwast, Maira Kalman, Louise Fili, Paula Scher, etc. offered their interpretations of the Print masthead, reflections on the printed form, spins on Print’s history, and everything in between, revealing an insight into the creators’ mind and the medium at large.
I was trying to show the shrinking importance of printed media. Print is dying, it is on its back, and new media is taking over.
I was very happy to again be a part of the 9th Festival of Tolerance - Jewish Film Festival Zagreb, and give a lecture on Saturday, April 18th, on Symbols of Hate.
Apart from the high school students, I was very pleased that the lecture was attended by the members of the Police Academy, who, along with the political circles, are the most important group I wish to reach, and who are able to control the violence.
Last but not least, I am very pleased the representatives of the football clubs also attended the lecture!
I was extremely honored to be invited by "The Nation" Magazine to contribute a full page illustration for their 150th Year Anniversary Issue.
Not only am in a good company of illustrators, Steve Brodner, Eric Drooker, Marshall Arisman, and Milton Glaser, among others, but I was also asked to illustrate the article, "Home" by the legendary E. L. Doctorow.
"Einstein tells us that scientific knowledge is like a searchlight whose expanding beam brings more and more of what was once dark into the light—but as it does, so does the circumference of darkness expand."
