Richard Avedon

Poking around PhotoDistrict News online and I discover a wealth of special "Legends Online" presentations from pdn and Kodak. This one on Richard Avedon has a ton of spreads from the book Avedon: The Sixties and is full of images of famous rock stars from the era.

There are a couple dozen other photographers featured in the Legends series as well, including Sebastiao Salgado, Jerry Uelsmann and Joyce Tenneson.

Communication Arts online has republished their Pioneers article on Alexey Brodovitch on their website.

Brodovitch was a pioneer in magazine design and he influenced the work of designers and photographers for more than a generation. A portfolio of his work accompanies the brief bio article.

IA Classics in Comic Book Form

Dan Willis has put together some really interesting comics that each cover a common concept / exercise that we do in our IA and UI work. We have published them over on Boxes and Arrows. Go get the PDF. Print them out and share with all your colleagues and no UI coworkers.

And along the same lines, Samantha Bailey, in her comments on the article, leads us to this fun poster which compares IA to dating and recaps many of the same techniques.

Fun and useful cube decorations.

Boxes and Arrows has been nominated for a Webby Award.

This is the first time something personal I have worked on has been nominated. We are up against The Onion, Metropolis Magazine, Shift Online and Alternet. I am very honored. Woohoo!! Don't forget to vote for us in the People's Choice Awards.

looking through the referrer logs at boxes and arrows led me to this collection of readings for a class at the new school. In addition to the interesting article by Meg Cole on Boxes and Arrows on the reading list, check out the very interesting and in-depth articles about design from monkey media.

The links are to the articles in straight HTML format - but if you go to their main site via the link above - you will see them presented in their flash format which is also a lot of fun. I think they have done an excellent job of combining interaction, music and information to make a very usable informational, promotional site for themselves. Everytime I go there, I want to quit my job and go work for them. (just kidding)

Summit Recap

My summit summaries can be found embedded in the IA Summit Wrap up over on Boxes and Arrows. Thanks to all the folks who wrote summaries so I didn't have to. This year was tough - sometimes timeslots with 6 sessions going on. Too many choices, not enough time. And as usual not enough time for networking. Taking advantage of a few brief hours of sunshine, I played hooky for a couple of the timeslots and went to check out downtown Portland. (The cherry blossoms are from the Japanese Memorial by the river) My photo albums can be found here:

It was fun. I wish we had more occasions to get together. I really enjoy the time with some of these folks.
