Type Tuesday 11th September


A lot of my friends complain that there are too many advertisments in magazines, but often the design used to advertise museum or gallery exhibitions are really well done. All of the above ads are from 'Frieze, Contemporary Art and Culture' magazine, Issue 108. I love the painted invitation for the Martin Kippenberger exhibition, and the type used to promote the 1967 collection show - such a great era! You'll need to click to enlarge to see the detail here. If you're a fan of the neon lettering on 'The Next Show' ad, check out this link on Ace Jet 170. He's shown a gizmo that generates neon lettering. xxxx

Does Frieze still publish reader mail making fun of them? That was always one of my favorite things about that mag.

Not sure - I'll have to have a read of the letters page.
