Impromptu NYC Graphic Design Weekend
Maybe it wasn’t official but it was hard not to have this past weekend consumed with events relating to graphic design here in New York City.
First, Helvetica the recent documentary buy Brooklynite Gary Hustwit started a short term run at the IFC Center. Several designers featured in the film attended screenings and held Q&A sessions afterwards. PSFK attended the 2:40 show on Saturday were we hoped to see David Carson but alas he missed a connection from Brussels and instead director Gary Hustwit answered questions. The documentary is well done and manages to provide a larger look at the cleanliness of modernism vs. the break it apart and stick it back together approach to post-modernism.
