LOVE THESE GENTS. Any vid about type is amazing.

Brings up a valid point tho, one I want to ask my design peeps: how do you pronounce Neutra? I pronounce it noy-tra, but they pronounce it new-tra. Am I being pretentious by saying it that way, like the ppl I roll my eyes at when they call Univers “OO-nee-verr”? OR is it more a po-tay-to po-tah-to thing, there is really no wrong way to say it? Debate, discuss.

Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque) met acclaimed designer and artist Javier Mariscal ten years ago when he asked him to create a poster for his Latin jazz documentary Calle 54. So began a fruitful collaboration that saw Mariscal design all the artwork for Trueba’s Calle 54 Records, make animated pop promos for the label, and together create a jazz-music restaurant in Madrid. Says Mariscal, “It was like, you find a new brother. So quickly, he’s a very, very close friend.”
The idea to make an animated feature film emerged out of one of those pop promos, La Negra Tomasa by Cuban musician Compay Segundo. “Fernando saw it,” says Mariscal, “and said, ‘Whoah, this is fantastic! I love how is Havana.’”
Mariscal’s younger brother Tono Errando is one of four siblings working at Barcelona’s Studio Mariscal. With a background in music, film and animation, he leads the audio-visual side of the multi-disciplinary creative company, and was the logical choice to connect the creative energies of Trueba and Mariscal. Says Errando, “Trueba never had any experience making animation. Mariscal had never made a film. How could we work in a way that they could bring all their talents?”

Charley Harper as Illustrator: the 1960s, part II

After the Golden Book of Biology, Charley didn’t have a hard time getting work as a children’s nature illustrator. During the 1960s he did several more projects for the Golden Press, a series of commissions for Field Enterprises and a public piece for the GSA.

Perhaps one of the reasons that Charley’s work is so enduring is how he treated his subject. As he stated in the mid-1970s: “I am careful to avoid anthropomorphism, having learned once when I illustrated “Bambi” that I am unalterably opposed to implying that animals act from the same motives and think the same thoughts as humans.” Compare the above to, e.g., Disney’s famous representation of Bambi and Charley’s respect for nature becomes rather obvious.

Around the time of his Bambi work Charley began freelancing for Field Enterprises, who published both theChildcraft Library and the World Book Encyclopedia. His illustrations first appeared in the 1964 edition ofChildcraft2 and the 1966 edition of World Book, and were seen by an entire generation of school children.

Also in 1964 Charley completed a mural in the lobby of the new Cincinnati Federal Building.3 The mural, actuallytwo murals, each 18′ × 10.5′, was titled American Wildlife and included more than 100 animals done entirely in ceramic tile and the occasional plastic strip. Mosaic turned out to be a perfect medium for Charley’s Minimal Realism, and the result is unmistakable.
