When I was in art school, I would remember seeing Noise Funk posters in most of the magazines I browse. And it just got stuck in my head. This was one of the design that really affected me when I was just exploring on graphic design as a student.

I didn't realize all those posters were designed by one person. I never knew who Paula Scher was until in my senior years. Until now, I can still clearly hear my housemate Flora screaming at me "You don't know Pentagram, you are a graphic designer!"

Scott Dadich, EIC of Wired has a tv show called Abstract: The Art of Design. It's an eight-episode documentary series about creativity, about visionary designers who shape the world around us—from architecture to illustration, cars to typography.

Of course we played Ep No. 6 first. This is the best design documentary I've seen so far. So much effort and I've only seen two episodes so far.

As Scott said it in this article -

"I can guess what you’re thinking, because I have watched a lot of design documentaries. Restrained, polished, pretty—so many of them look like a moving version of a coffee table book. You’ve got softly lit interviews, esoteric conversations, and subtle tracking shots of wide landscapes beneath unobtrusive music. Most of it is clean, minimal, and boring as hell.

We’re not doing that. My partners and fellow executive producers—Morgan Neville (who won an Oscar for 20 Feet From Stardom) and RadicalMedia’s Dave O’Connor—and I built a team of today’s best-known documentarians. Every episode stands as its own film, adapting the design sensibilities of our subjects..."

Identity design for The Invisible College - a music event organizer. The identity was inspired by the Rosicrucian era which represents the hand as belongingness in a brotherhood - "This eye looks with greatest peace upon the wonders of all movements and also looks through all the other eyes".

The Invisible College

We also designed their first promotional poster for the international band / act - Chairlift. Thanks to Quark Henares, Mike Shih and Vikki Panopio-Shih for giving us the opportunity to work on this. Looking forward for the next concert posters!
