My team at Pentagram (Michael Gericke’s) recently finished the design of this gate for Pespi at Metlife Stadium, to celebrate the Super Bowl in New Jersey. We designed a three story vinyl graphic, complete with a typographic pattern of football related phrases, 2 large bottle sculptures created from the Pepsi logo, and various banners throughout the gate.

I’m a bit late in posting this, but I wanted to put this up as a follow up to NFLogos.com. This summer GQ Magazine asked me to come up with names and designs for hypothetical London teams to be featured in their September NFL kickoff issue. I proposed 5 teams. 3 can be found in the print version. All 5 can be found in the iPad version (the detail images above are from the iPad version). Thanks to GQ for the opportunity.
I’m proud to have had the chance to design the holiday campaign for Top of the Rock and Rockefeller Center with Michael Gericke (partner in charge) and Kelly Sung. Click through for more.
We decided to record a year end special of On the Grid. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed recording it with Dan and Andy.
Episode 24: 2012 in Design [recorded December 29th, 2012]
It’s our year end special. We discussed the events and issues that effected and shaped design this past year. We focused on three: The evolving relationship between design and technology, changes in publishing, and the flat design vs. skeuomorphism debate.
If you want to see other topics and links we considered, including Crowdfunding Product/Industrial Design and the Evolution of Email, check out the post on our subreddit.
We’ve been preparing a list of the major design events/topics in 2012 to discuss in an end-of-year episode of On the Grid.
We’ve tried to hit the major points but we’re looking for suggestions. What are we missing?
I recently wrote a guest post for one of my favorite design blogs, Humans in Design:
A paper banknote featuring a national icon, a denomination, and the countless details that assure us that it is indeed valuable: It’s the interface that has served us well for centuries.
However, we all know that soon enough physical currency will be a distant memory…
We’re starting a subreddit for On the Grid. We hope that you will submit links for us to discuss on the show, and ultimately that it will become a resource for relevant design news.
