Design & Designer 071 – Post Typography, official blurb: Nolen Strals and Bruce Willen, who founded the Post Typography studio in Baltimore in 2001, are inveterate media-mixers. They wed illustrations with photos, transform mundane objects into alphabet letters, and give 2-D elements a fresh dimension – juggling every discipline with palpable pleasure. Post Typography’s graphic design makes substantial use of lettering – whether in posters, illustrations or CD covers – and assiduously avoids typographic neutrality. Thus, hidden on their website is the manifesto “Typography is dead. You have killed it.” Together with an accomplice, Nolen and Bruce also make up punk rock band Double Dagger, feeding both their graphic output (they make all their own CD covers) and Baltimore’s famed music scene. They teach graphic design and typography at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and regularly contribute to conferences and exhibitions on the discipline. They recently curated the exhibition Alphabet.

Paris-based Pyramyd Editions has regularly been publishing monographs since 2002 featuring work by selected artists, graphic and product designers. These bilingual monographs form part of a series called Design & Designer. The books contain introductions and descriptions in French and English for the many featured project visuals. Each publication title has a serial number (such as Designer & Designer 033 – FL@33).

In some cases – especially within the first 25 of the series – a second and even third edition was published with fresh new content and a 'v.2' or 'v.3' added to the book title. Other titles go out of print and do not seem to be reprinted in the foreseeable future (such as Antoine+Manuel's book for example). At time of writing this text the Designer & Designer series already reached serial number 086.

A few selected titles are available here especially by some of our own contributors who already created button badges and more for Stereohype. Fill any gaps you may have in your collection or start yours today.
