Remember Joe Torre? Better yet, remember the Yellow Pages?
There is so much to love about this 1976 ad which was part of AT&T’s “Faces” campaign for the Yellow Pages. The ad featured Joe Torre, then a player on the New York Mets, as the owner of his Brooklyn sporting good store. Black and white spreads ads appeared in Time, U.S. News & World Report and Newsweek. The campaign was created by Cunningham & Walsh with creative credits going to art director Jorge Perez-Vinalet and copywriter John Mezzina and photography by Carl Fischer.Read More

Women in Graphic Design
Why do apparently so few women feature in the history of design? Why do so few women speak at conferences? Why are previously well-known women ‘forgotten’? Are women judged today solely on the basis of their quality of work? First published in Germany, Women in Graphic Design 1890–2012 — whose contributors include Ellen Lupton, Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, Paula Scher, Tina Roth Eisenberg and Julia Hoffmann — raises and seeks to answer these questions, and in the process debunks the myth that artistic genius is solely a male thing. The antidote: an opulently illustrated volume which shines the light on accomplished women designers with 400 short biographies, samples, essays, sources and detailed discussions. The authors are Gerda Breuer and Julia Meer, and the publisher is Jovis. www.jovis.deRead More
