  3. Living and teaching in the most photogenic campus on the planet has its advantages: when sunset approaches, the perfect shot is just there. Add to this an amazing cohort of students in the Graphic Design Studio class, and voilà the banner for the inaugural NYUAD “walking” concert on Saadiyat.

  5. Our new Campus is absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, the default office signs, set in Arial, are quite too much to cope with; I personally think Arial should be banned from any place where typography is taught. Its story is one of bad practice in design, fraud and lack of integrity. I don’t want it on my door.
I redesigned mine using the NYUAD Serif corporate typeface Mercury and now it makes more sense, doesn’t it?

  7. Some twenty years ago I have designed the visual identity of the Italian Arctic Base ‘Dirigibile Italia’, in the Svalbard Islands. While the original is hidden somewhere in the attic, a nice postmark came out of a Google images search on a philatelic website.

Milton Glasner rebrands the climate change movement but Joe Romm, editor of Climate Progress, explains why it fails point by point (the earth is warming and it is not dying, just transforming into a non-human-habitable planet, which is even scarier)

A reminder for all science designers to be very careful with what they communicate…
