  • Design, industrial, chair, student

    Javier Alejandre exhibited his chair, Oddbod, at the Spanish Design Awards INJUVE 2010. The product designer and student from Madrid designed Oddbod to play at the boundary between inert objects and living creatures by using shapes that call to mind extraterrestrial bodies (and it is a pretty cute, alien-like chair).

    A Visual Design student who is signed up for my upcoming Typography course wrote to me and asked what he could read during the summer to get ready for the Fall semester class. It about knocked my serifs right off. Where was he hiding his apathy?
