An exhibition at the London College of Communications celebrates the legacy of Tom Eckersley. Eckersley set up the UK's first undergraduate graphic design course at what was then the London College of Printing. The LCC dean of design comments, "As 21st century communications design and media races ever onwards, finding a moment to pause and reflect upon the disciplines' past, amidst the barrage of multidisciplinary, multi-platform, multi-layered visual messages, is increasingly relevant."

We first saw the Ulysses series by Miles Donovan in London back in 2012 and thought we would take a look back at the fantastic collages, a "series of images from the missing space probe Ulysses." Great collage ideas, juxtaposing images of deep space with those of both the common tourist and street scenes. Perhaps we will see some space tourists in 2014...

The 1920s saw the advent of new and radical graphic design created to advertise silent films across the Soviet Union. Film posters of this era have become masterpieces in their own right, produced at a time when innovative on-screen techniques were being incorporated into the design of advertisements. Some 30 works will be on display at the Gallery for Russian Arts and Design in London from January 17th to March 29th, 2014.

We are enjoying new oil paintings by Canadian-born, London-based painter Andrew Salgado this morning, a very classical artist who creates beautiful portraits. Salgado says of his works, "I am interested in how my paintings might operate independently from their literal figurative foundation and engage with an exploration of color, reduction of forms, and triumph of substance as imbued with meaning and metaphor, overt, and suggestive."

German industrial designer, Dieter Rams, has an extensive career of making product designs for Braun. Das Programm, the store and archive of Dieter Rams‘ work for Braun, curated an exhibition entitled "Systems," where they asked 34 graphic designers to respond to “systematicity of Braun Design," in the vein of Rams' classic work for the company. The resulting poster art designs, ranging from classic Braun designs to products that never saw production, are up in the Walter Knoll showroom in Clerkenwell, London, through December 31, 2013.
