Today’s Artist of the Day is one of my favorite artists EVER – David Carson. I was lucky enough to see his “Time after Type” exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany, some years ago during my design studies and it left me in awe and excited. He completely and utterly changed design forever with his approach to type and has been copied thousand times over. He worked (and still works) for every major company and magazine out there and has published some gorgeous books about type as well as his magazine “Ray Gun”. YOU too know him/his work as he created some major advertizing campaigns for NIKE or the House of Blues among other things.
If you want to check out his art it’s best to go look for his beautiful, beautiful books. While I love his work his website kinda …lacks. But here it is anyway:
