1. 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…

  3. #NYUAD Marhaba Week 2014 Visual Identity. 

    Legacy of good Design at NYUAD.

    Welcome Class of 2018!

  4. That’s it. Tomorrow I am on a plane back to Abu Dhabi. My Moto Guzzi is entering winter torpor already. Thanks for the ride and see you later.

  6. Meeting an old friend while walking around in Ostia Lido (the beach of Rome). The Centro per La Vita Ostia Logotype, one of my very first designs, circa 1989. The brand guidelines are not in place anymore and the logotype is set in Times New Roman now - the orginal was a custom tuned Friz Quadrata - but in its basic shape and proportion the mark stays and stands the test of time. Nice meeting you, my friend!

  7. The Letterpress Studio at Dartmouth. Magical! A source of inspiration for the New Campus in Saadiyat Island.

  8. Time to move! Saadiyat island here we come!

  9. In the photos, next to an insanely happy professor and then passed from the Class of 2014 to 2015: The NYUAD Torch, designed by Erin Meekhof, Mariko Kuroda and Arfa Rehman, students of the NYUAD Design Collective.

    BEST PROJECT, BEST DESIGN, BEST TEAM, EVER.

  10. What if M.D behave like designers? What about the other way round? →

    I have often imagined the scene of a Medical Doctor trying to ‘win’ a patient the way visual designers try to win a client.
