Our design heroes blog features our favorite architects, typographers, artists, and a few famous graphic designers that have truly defined our field.
Jessica Hische - Typographer
Effective typography is halfway between art and science. As it's appreciation in the design community reaches new heights, Jessica Hische is one name that should be piquing your interest.
Solid typography is easy to overlook, because when it's done well it seems effortless. In that same vein, a typographer generally likes to remain "behind the scenes" and let their work speak for itself. Like any craft there is a certain balance that must be struck and Jessica Hische has done an impeccable job so far in her career of making incredible work and supporting her community (without even becoming the least bit art-snobby).
Wayne White is the kind of character who avoids the spotlight. His art however does not.
Some of the most interesting characters that you’ll ever meet are often uncomfortable in accepting attention. Wayne White is one such character. You’ve seen his work and probably marveled at his unique take on reality - but odds are, you couldn’t pick him out of a lineup.
Dieter Rams - Principles of Design
Legendary design hero Dieter Rams reflects on the Ten Commandments of Design.
As good design cannot be measured in a finite way he set about expressing the ten most important principles for what he considered was good design (Sometimes they're referred to as the Ten Commandments of Design).
Samuel Mockbee - Architect
The father of the Rural Studio, Auburn's Samuel Mockbee was a founding father of American's Sustainable Architectural Movement. His commitment to architecture and ethics leaves a shining legacy for todays socialy consious architects.
The architectural profession lost one of its most socially responsible members when Auburn's Samuel Mockbee, age 57, died on December 30, 2001 of complications of leukemia. An inspiring educator, gifted practitioner, and a passionate artist, "Sambo" showed us that humble architecture deserves an advocate. It deserved the same care in both design and fabrication, that any big-budget public project should garner.
