London Design Festival 2010: Gastrotypographicalassemblage

 The London Design Festival is off and running and there are so many great things to experience and get inspired by. I wish I could see the tribute to Lou Dorfsman at the Kemistry Gallery. Such beautiful typography collaged together to adorn the walls of CBS.

Created during an era when designers were both artisans and well-trained communicators, the wall is the largest modern typographic artefact in existence, described by Michael Bierut as ‘an irreplaceable piece of design history.’ With custom type created by Herb Lubalin and Tom Carnase, the wall contains almost 1500 individual characters.

Gastrotypographicalassemblage: The Designs of Lou Dorfsman presents the design history of one of the United States' most revered designers. In his forty years spent at the CBS television network, Dorfsman was responsible for every aspect of the advertising and corporate identity. Kemistry Gallery present a life's dedication to design excellence.
