Master of Design // HERBERT MATTER

Swiss born Herbert Matter is largely credited with expanding the use of photography as a design tool and bringing the semantics of fine art into the realm of applied arts.

Herbert Matter, Swiss photographer and graphic designer, is the author of the most emblematic modern Swiss photographic posters. In 1936 Herbert Matter emigrated to the US, where he worked as a photographer for Vogue and Harper’s Baazar. During the second world war he was commissioned by the US government to design propaganda posters. In 1944, he became the design consultant at Knoll, molding its graphic identity for over 12 years. In 1952, he joined the Yale faculty as professor of photography and graphic design.

known for his pioneering use of photomontage in commercial art.

I just learn about Herbert Matter. His photomontage approach inspires me to use it in my design works. Perhaps after the movie is being release, I will try to arrange with my fellow mates to have a movie hour at our Faculty theaterette. Maybe watching this kind of movie can be our weekly activity for the next semester. who knows? huhu.

To Inform and Delight (2009)

“To Inform & Delight: The World of Milton Glaser” may leave you with the impression that the spirit of modern New York was conjured out of thin air by its subject, the celebrated graphic designer who is about to turn 80. It was Mr. Glaser who came up with the “I ♥ NY” logo in the 1970s when the city, then on the verge of bankruptcy, was widely perceived as a crime-infested danger zone. As the center of a campaign to revive New York, the logo helped reverse the decline and boost morale. [ excerpt from NY Times ]

Kaplan Uni Inspiring Ad

Kaplan University  had this really inspiring spot about how they bring education to you, wherever you are.

They used one of those desks we had in high school in lots of cool locations as a metaphor to prove us that education can be reach whenever we are, anytime , anywhere. I got goosebump each time I watch this video. Same thing happenned when I watched UKM’s corporate video. Awesomeness!

Actually my minor class lecturer , Ms. Hasimah Ja’afar is now trying to get us into a new kind of learning practice through technology. We’ve already started our discussion online in YM ( I think many of other Uni’s mates been using the same way too 😉 ). It’s a CHANGE that she want to develop in each of us, to be a new generation of educators that keep abreast  with the technology and all things fancy.

“we’re not dealing with machine, we’re dealing with humans”

Saya mahu buku2 ni!

Just now I attended my copywriting class and my dear lecturer asked if anybody have any books to order for copywriting collections in our uni. library. So here’s mine to suggest.

The Advertising Concept Book is designed primarily for students (and teachers) and provides a well-structured and complete course on advertising, including several exercises that students can try. The book works through the entire process from basic tools, to strategy and campaign executions across all media – print, TV, ambient, interactive, radio and integrated campaigns.
