I had the honor of writing the introduction for Janet Froelich‘s Hall of Femmes monograph. Now I have the pleasure of announcing the forthcoming Hall of Femmes book on Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, a Supergraphics pioneer, an extraordinary 88-year-old woman and designer with a fascinating life story. Join the Kickstarter and help the cause.
Barbara Stauffacher Solomon was the first to create what came to be known as Supergraphics: monumental graphics designed in harmony with architecture. Her iconic style—mixing Swiss Modernism and West Coast Pop—pioneered the look of California Cool, an important moment in graphic design history.
All too often, typography gets overlooked in larger design competitions—which is why we developed one that gives the artforms their full due and recognizes the best designers in each category. Whether you design your own typefaces, design type-centric pieces or create gorgeous handlettered projects, we want to see your work—and share it with our readers.
Enter today for a chance to be featured in Print magazine, receive a prize pack from MyDesignShop.com, and more. Early bird rates for the competition—which features both pro and student categories—end Oct. 14!
