It’s December. A month that is full of parties, drinking, deadlines, ironic jumpers and endless poultry. And, the annual crisis of choosing what to buy for your mother, your friends, your colleagues, your neighbour and your significant other
We know time is tight, and that end-of-year shopping is a nightmare, so in the spirit of giving, we’ve made a list of gifts, from Pentagram, to suit every budget.
Quick Link: Win Five Books Designed by Pentagram
Pentagram’s friends, clients and colleagues recently gathered at our New York studio to celebrate the publication of Abbott Miller: Design and Content, the new monograph by Abbott Miller. In the book, out now from Princeton Architectural Press, Miller assumes both roles of designer and author, taking readers through his process of designing identities, books, magazine, exhibitions, environmental graphics, and digital projects, including groundbreaking work for clients and collaborators including the Guggenheim, Harley-Davidson, Vitra, Knoll, Formica, Rolling Stone and 2wice.
The New York Times Book Review has just highlighted Design and Content in its year-end roundup of notable design books. In his review, Steven Heller writes that the “engaging design book…offers a neutral frame for a precisionist practice” that, in Miller’s words, balances “the hedonism of the eye and the obligations of function, message and content.”
On 18 November, Abbott Miller gave a talk at Pentagram’s London studio about his monograph, Design and Content. We tweeted quotes from his talk on the night using #sosaysabbott, and have complied five of our favourite moments for all of you who didn’t get the chance to follow live.
