Lascaux- the first graphic designers
Saul Bass- found a new medium in which to create art.
I like umbrellas and logos that do more than just look pretty. Plus this would be really easy to put up on a readerboard which is my personal test for strong logos.
Nouveau Salon des cent, Hommage a Toulouse-Lautrec.
Paula brings us back in history to this guy:
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
Jane Avril Leaving the Moulin Rouge
Someone once told me that he was the founder or maybe the father of graphic design. Toulouse-Lautrec struggled with alcoholism and a crippled body due to the inbreeding of his family. It seems all the great artists had their demons. Van Gogh struggled all his life only to sell one painting and commit suicide before he could ever know of his impact on art.
It's getting late and my brain is getting lame. Good night
