Coming from the folk who brought us the awesome ‘Studio Culture – The Secret Life of The Graphic Design Studio’ in 2009, the new project from Unit Editions takes the form of a newspaper, with quite a specific subject matter at that. ‘Design/Research 01′ focuses upon the work of seminal, yet largely overlooked record sleeve designer Ronald Clyne and his work for Folkways (hence the lack of Clyne links at the end of this post). Merely from a visual perspective, the tight typography and minimalistic layouts are truly incredible when considering the time in which they were produced. Hopefully the first in what shall be an informative and inventive series about the sometimes neglected corners of visual culture.
