Myspace… lo visito y no entiendo nada…

Sin duda la mejor reunión entre creativos que podamos encontrar en la red, Behance actúa compilando las obras visuales de artistas gráficos, productores o mismas agencias con la intención de hacernos llegar aquello que creativos o estudios a nivel profesional están marcándose por el planeta, haciendo participes a estos o mejor, protagonistas de lo que han llevado a cabo, al final una comunidad donde colaboras con otros creativos un espacio que inspira y donde todos crecemos observando los muchos trabajos excepcionales, que aquí aparecen o como a decir “que cacho de “crack” es ese Californiano!”, sencillamente único!

Undoubtedly the best meeting between creative that we could find in the net, Behance acts compiling the visual works of graphical, producing artists or the same agencies with the intention of making ourselves come that one that creative or studies at the professional level are marking for the planet, doing inform these or better, protagonists of what they have carried out, ultimately a community where you collaborate with creative others a space that inspires and where we all grow observing a lot of exceptional works, which here appear or as to saying ” that chunk of “star player” is this Californian! “, simply unique!

Helvetica A Documentary Film

Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which will celebrate its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. The film is an exploration of urban spaces in major cities and the type that inhabits them, and a fluid discussion with renowned designers about their work, the creative process, and the choices and aesthetics behind their use of type. Helvetica invites us to take a second look at the thousands of words we see every day.

Helvetica es película independiente sobre la tipografía, el diseño gráfico y la cultura global visual. Mira la proliferación de un tipo de tipo (que celebrará su 50 cumpleaños en 2007) como parte de la conversación más grande sobre el modo que esta tipo afecta nuestras vidas. La película es una exploración de espacios urbanos en ciudades principales, como, los habita, y una discusión fluida con diseñadores renombrados sobre su trabajo, el proceso creativo, opiniones y la estética detrás de su enorme uso.

Wences Rambla, abstracción itinerante!

Desde su instalación hasta fechas actuales, el Museu de Belles arts de Castelló ha ido entendiendo que a parte de platos, cruces y retablos su gran espacio de hormigón y aluminio reciclado debía de entender mucho más, una de sus entendidas actuaciones se centra en mostrar y acercar durante un atractivo tiempo la obra de Wenceslao Rambla ( Castellón, 1948 ), aparte de cercano, y animador de los calurosos veranos, nos prestamos a reseñar su obra, y con ello recomendamos estos días ser visitada.
Una razón, la nuestra es grafica y urbana abstracción, donde podemos divagar, encontrar obras que nos resultan graficas creaciones expresas por gente como Joshua Davids, o Sagmeister, llegando en series actuales del autor, a cierto paralelismo con John Maeda, y es en esa “similitud” o “relación” con el Diseño grafico, bajo nuestra lente y el buen hacer de este catedrático, es donde hemos encontrado una razón por la que acercarnos al Museu.

Obras presentadas en el Libro “Un itinerari plàstic per la senda de l´abstracció”

From your installation up to current dates, the Museu de Belles arts on Castelló has been understanding that to part of plates, crosses and altarpieces your great space of concrete and recycled aluminium must deal much more, one of your understood performances centres on showing and bringing Wenceslao Rambla’s (Castellón, 1948) work over during an attractive time ¡, apart from nearby, and entertainer of the warm summers, we offer to outline his work, and with it we recommend these days to be visited.

A reason, ours is a graphical and urban abstraction, where we can digress, find works that us turn out to be graphical express creations for people as Joshua Davids, or Sagmeister, coming in current series of the author, to certain parallelism with John Maeda, and it is in this “similarity” or “relation” with the graphical Design, under our lens and the good one to play the role of this professor, where we have found a reason for which to approach the Museu.

Works presented in a book ” An itinerari plàstic per the path of l’abstracció ”

Weimar Academy of Design

The school was founded by Gropius at the conservative city of Weimar in 1919, as a merger of the Weimar School of Arts and Crafts (Grossherzogliche Kunstgewerbeschule) and the Weimar Academy of Fine Arts (Grossherzogliche Hochschule für Bildende Kunst). His opening manifesto proclaimed:-

to create a new guild of craftsmen, without the class distinctions which raise an arrogant barrier between craftsmen and artist.(frampton p123)

Most of the contents of the workshops had been sold off during World War I. The early intention was for the Bauhaus to be a combined architecture school, crafts school, and academy of the arts. Much internal and external conflict followed.

Gropius argued that a new period of history had begun with the end of the war. He wanted to create a new architectural style to reflect this new era. His style in architecture and consumer goods was to be functional, cheap, and consistent with mass production. To these ends, Gropius wanted to reunite art and craft to arrive at high-end functional products with artistic pretensions. The Bauhaus issued a magazine called “Bauhaus” and a series of books called “Bauhausbücher”. Its head of printing and design was Herbert Bayer.

Many believe that German reform in art education was critical for economic reasons. Since the country lacked the quantity of raw materials that the United States and Great Britain had, they had to rely on the proficiency of its skilled labor force and ability to export innovative and high quality goods. Therefore designers were needed and so was a new type of art education. The school’s philosophy basically stated that the artist should be trained to work with the industry.

Funding for the Bauhaus was initially provided by the Thuringian state parliament. Parliamentary support for the school eminated from the Social Democratic party. In February 1924, the Social Democrats lost control of the state parliament to the nationalists, who were hostile to the Bauhaus’s leftist programme. September saw the Ministry of Education place the staff on six-month contracts and cut the school’s funding in half. For Gropius, who had already been looking for alternative sources of funding, this proved to be the last straw. Together with the Council of Masters he announced the closure of the Bauhaus from the end of March 1925. The SPD, who had governed in Dessau for years, offered to establish the Bauhaus in the city. Gropius and his staff moved there in 1926.

After the Bauhaus moved to Dessau, a school of industrial design with teachers and staff less antagonistic to the conservative political regime remained in Weimar. This school was eventually known as the Technical University of Architecture and Civil Engineering and in 1996 changed its name to Bauhaus University Weimar.
