Visual inspiration to start off the week:
Geometry and angst from Houzz: all-too-true Venn diagrams created by architect Jody Brown, illustrating the occasionally uneasy relationship between artists/architects and the clients who love and employ them. The comments are priceless.
(The “leading online platform for home remodeling and design,” Houzz opens the door to homeowners, home design enthusiasts and home improvement professionals seeking the inspiration, project advice, product information and professional reviews they need to help turn their design ideas into reality.)
And from PBS Off Book, the art of logo design—the group’s latest video decoding the silent, invisible vocabulary of color, shape and typography that link brands and ideas to our mind’s eye and memory. Traces the history of the mark from cave paintings to Coca Cola and beyond and features insights from such design luminaries as Stephen Heller, Sagi Haviv, Kelli Anderson and Gerard Huerta.
