The Profile of Jose Luis Martinez

What is a typical work day/week like for you? I get up pretty early–around six in the morning–pretty much everyday. I’m definitely a morning-and-night person and not a big sleeper. I’m an art director at Goodby Silverstein (an ad agency in San Francisco) and I usually don’t get home from work until after 8:00. My job…

How has the response been to the new ‘Sessions’ book and is there anything more you want to tell us about it? The response has been much greater than expected. I’ve had to order more books, and it seems to have hit a chord with designers who want another perspective of the processes involved in collaborating,…


Profile Presents Forecast: cloudy by Wili Kunz

While changes in visual style, education, and practice evolved predictably in the past, some unexpected developments are affecting graphic design today. The profession many of us remember as bright and optimistic is now overwhelmingly introspective – permeated with anxiety, cynicism, and pseudo-intellectual debate.   Idealism and passion for creative work have been replaced by ego-driven…


The Profile of Post Typography

You have a variety of work, and have had continuing engagements with several clients… do any projects stand out as favorites? We’ve been doing regular illustrations for The New York Times (mainly the Book Review, but other sections as well). These projects often illustrate an essay or article with a more abstract intellectual theme or relate…

[kml_flashembed movie=”/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/0011.swf” width=”479″ height=”404″/] Tell us a bit about your background, and the disciplines and media your work comprises. Like most kids, I started drawing and painting around the age of four or five. I can remember building and painting clay dinosaur sculptures in the 2nd grade with my classmates; handprint paintings were one of my…

[kml_flashembed movie=”/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/0010b.swf” width=”480″ height=”480″/] Did you have any reservations about publishing the monograph so early in your careers? What did you learn during the process of putting it together? We didn’t have many reservations about making the book. Who wouldn’t like to make a whole book about your own work? And when the publisher basically gave…


The Profile of John Maeda

In a previous publication you stated: “Amidst the attention given to the sciences as how they can lead to the cure of all diseases and daily problems of mankind, I believe that the biggest breakthrough will be the realization that the arts, which are conventionally considered ‘useless,’ will be recognized as the whole reason why we…


The Profile of Nico Stumpo

We haven’t talked to you in awhile, so we are really curious, what are you working on these days? Where are you based now? I have been living in Amsterdam for 3 years now. After living 4 years in Milan I decided that it was time to move. An advertising agency called Wieden+Kennedy offered me a…


[kml_flashembed movie=”/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/0003_001.swf” width=”480″ height=”480″/] By now, hopefully you have heard of Roger Ballen. If not, you are in for a wonderful treat. Roger is a photographer from South Africa and has made a huge impact on all of us here. We feel that he is one of the most important photographers alive today. He mixes…
