We are producing a web-based documentary that lets people learn about Arthur and allows them to submit their own Arthur Fields photo or Arthur Fields-inspired photo into the online story of the photographer.

  4. Margaret Calvert is a graphic designer famously known for her design of road signs and typefaces, including the font Calvert. At AGI Open London 2013 she tells Design Indaba about designing lettering and road signs from scratch, focussing on the driver’s needs.
    Calvert’s work started in the 1950s when vehicle ownership was booming and the government was alarmed at clogged up roads. With the decision to create motorways, the existing road signs became inadequate for the new speed people would be travelling at. Jack Kinnear, assisted by Calvert, embarked on creating a new set of road signs for the changing use of roads.
    “When you design road signs you have to start from scratch,” she says. “We looked at what they already had and then started drawing letterforms in terms of making it readable for the driver.”
    It’s all about asking the right questions and knowing whom you are designing for, she says.
    In Calvert’s opinion designers have two sides: one that likes to play, is creative and inventive, and another that focusses solely on whom the design is for.
    Design is not always only about putting your personality into a particular design, she says.
    Calvert also recently worked on the gov.uk website, in an advisory position to designer Ben Terrett.

  5. In an interview at AGI Open 2013 in London, Michael Bierut speaks about his groundbreaking projects and the changing nature of graphic design.

    At AGI Open London 2013, Pentagram partner Michael Bierut tells us about his career highlights, projects that have been of great interest to him and his advice for aspiring graphic designers.

    Bierut fell in love with New York City at age 16 and knew it was where he wanted to live and work. The highlights of his career include projects that saw him playing a role in creating a lasting mark in the city: “It’s such a thrill,” he says. These projects include the building signage for New York Times, graphics for SAKS Fifth Avenue shopping bags and pedestrian wayfinding systems throughout the city.

    The redesign of the iconic Billboard magazine is one Pentagram project that's stirred up the most interest for Bierut.

    It’s the Bible for the pop music industry, says Bierut

    The redesign of the magazine – and in particular its renowned pop charts in the back of the magazine – provided Bierut with a unique and interesting challenge in information design.

    Bierut believes that there is always something interesting about a project and the people you work with and the ability to be curious about this will shape the way work is done going forward.

    All you need is curiosity and optimism and you can become a designer this minute, says Bierut.

    Speaking on how the design industry has changed over the years, Bierut concludes by saying it was once more important to be able to draw in order to be a graphic designer. Now, he says, “It’s more important to read.”
