Graphisme en France 2009-2010

La seizième édition de Graphisme en France vient de paraître. Editée par le Centre national des arts plastiques en collaboration avec le ministère de la Culture et de la Communication ( Délégation aux arts plastiques), elle a pour thème la typographie.

Plusieurs contributions, comme autant de points de vue sur ce domaine de la création et sur ses enjeux, sont proposés. Michel Wlassikoff, historien et chercheur, dresse un panorama de ces dix dernières années de création typographique en France. Jean-Baptiste Levée aborde, au travers de sa pratique, le quotidien et les enjeux liés au dessin de caractère. Peter Bil’ak, typographe et créateur de la fonderie Typotheque aux Pays-Bas, livre une réflexion sur la question de la diffusion en la comparant à celle de la musique en ligne. Quant à Thomas Huot-Marchand, il présente son expérience d’enseignant en typographie à l’école supérieure d’art et de design d’Amiens et à l’école supérieure d’art de Besançon.

Un calendrier des événements à venir dans le domaine du design graphique, les prix attribués à des graphistes français et une sélection de publications complètent cette parution.

Chaque édition est l’occasion d’une création graphique originale. Cette année, elle a été confiée à Léa Chapon et Mytil Ducomet qui, après une formation à l’Ecole Estienne et un post-diplôme à l’École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs de Paris , ont fondé, en 2006, l’atelier Müesli (Paris). Leur proposition, hommage à l’ornementation typographique et à la gravure sur bois, est composée avec la typographie Minuscule créée par Thomas Huot-Marchand.

The Session

September 9th, 2009

The Session is a collective of eight designers and artists that make a thematic, interdisciplinary fanzine since September 2007.
The Session manufactures theme-zines in the finest DIY spirit, serving serious readers through a distribution network consisting of dealers. (…)
The Session takes place for one day every second month, during which works around a specific theme are being made. The group uses different methods and media, from drawing to research to songwriting. (…) The members of the group are taking turns in deciding the theme to work with, members can invite other people to join a session. The one deciding for the theme is the publisher of the issue and responsible for editing, design and (re-)production. This means that every issue will look different, that every issue will be compiled with a different approach and produced in a different way, testing out formats and techniques. (…)

The special edition, The Last Session, around the theme Endism is not only a publication, but also takes the form of an exhibition, a cinema and a radio station, from 18 September to 18 October 2009, in Amsterdam.

Look for the Union Label

September 4th, 2009



Look for the Union Label:
A Celebration of Union Logos and Emblems

The use of emblems to denote workers in a particular craft predates the advent of the modern union label by many centuries. Craft guilds, which had become widespread as a form of organization by the 1400s, often decorated their halls and seals with a visual symbol of either the tools or the product of their art – or both. The carpenters’ dividers or compasses that once graced the coat of arms of a craft guild now served as the mark of a labor union … …
