Full disclosure, my photograph has been significantly altered in Photoshop by superimposing the design from the right wall onto the left wall. It may not be journalistically accurate but I do feel its a much stronger image.
Last Fall The School of Visual Arts Chelsea Gallery in New York had an exhibition of Michael Bierut's design work.
A glowing review in The New York Times T Magazine went so far as to title its article: “The Man Who Designed Manhattan” with praise for the show as well as Michael’s new book “How to Use Graphic Design to Sell Things, Explain Things, Make Things Look Better, Make People Laugh, Make People Cry, and (Every Once in a While) Change the World.”
Just a few weeks before Michael’s show opened, my film editor and I were putting the finishing touches on my latest documentary, “DJ Stout: The Man Who Designed Texas”. That title was credited to “The Texas Observer” review of DJ's new book “Variations on a Rectangle”
