MoMA Exhibit Design: Frank Lloyd Wright And The City

Title wall at MoMA Frank Lloyd Wright Exibit

The in-house design team at MoMA does some great work. I try to check out their site every so often to see what they are up to.

In the midst of doing some research for an upcoming project, I came across this colorful and contemporary gem.

I love the bright yellow and the perfect orange-y red graphic; and it’s wonderfully anchored by the strong grey color — the whole design pops off the wall.

I must say: I love design…I love museums. Put them together and I can hardly contain myself!

Bill’s Fried Chicken (in Mississippi) features a functional and colorful menu — it doubles as a fan. It’s a great idea and a clever cultural reference to the American South.

The menu items themselves are listed in a clean, straightforward layout on one side of the fan, while the opposite side features hand-drawn graphics of various southern references.

COLOR + ILLUSTRATION | Colorful and Retro-esque Posters by Neil Stevens

Quick post: The venerable Allan Peters had Neil Stevens’ work posted at his site and I thought I would share it here too. Stevens’ colorful posters are minimalist, but each thoughtful details and a color palette that brings the concept to life.

Below are a few samples, but many more images can be found at the link!
