27 April 2013 is Icograda’s 50th birthday, World Communication Design Day. To mark this auspicious occasion and global celebration, I’ve composed a few graphic iterations and collages. Icograda invites contributions on a Facebook page set up for international “graphic sharing” here.
The Icograda 50th Anniversary logo was designed by Omar Vulpinari and a creative team at Fabrica.

Chaz Maviyane-Davies, a Zimbabwean expat friend and Professor of Design at the Massachusetts College of Art, creates a new tear-sheet flyer each month with a different quote on it outside his office door in the college… above is this month’s offering.
I’ve frequently posted graphic work by Chaz on this blog, e.g. here…

swissted is an ongoing project by graphic designer Mike Joyce… combining his love of punk rock and Swiss modernism, two movements that have (almost) nothing to do with one another. Mike has redesigned vintage punk, hardcore, new wave, and indie rock show flyers into international typographic style posters — each design is set in lowercase Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk Medium (not Helvetica).

Kapil Bhagat used to work in advertising. He’s currently “in search of something new to do with life.” In the meantime, he experiments with graphics (such as the clever posters shown above which give homage to famous scientists).
This is Luba Lukova‘s latest poster design for The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare at La MaMa e.t.c. (final poster at top, poster sketch below and a detail of conceptual sketches). Internationally recognized, Luba is regarded as one of the most distinctive image-makers working today — her original art uses metaphors, the juxtaposition of symbols, and an economy of linear illustration and text to beautifully capture the essence of basic humanity.
