“Dear Reader was created partly from a primordial graphic designers’ urge to publish something, partly in celebration of our Atelier’s approximate fifth anniversary, partly as a vessel to showcase our type design work that circumvents the boring conventions and the visual clichés of the type specimen.”
Christophe Szpajdel, the Belgium-born, UK-based artist has completed nearly 50 new logos. Among marks for bands like Jucifer, Human Remains and Powerlord was a hand-drawn black-metal logo for the Walker Art Center. Szpajdel, who presented the piece to the Walker as a gift, said he wanted a balanced, yet not entirely symmetrical, piece that references the water and plant life in the nearby Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and Loring Park. He intended a water-like “flow” with the letterforms, he said, and one inspiration — specifically, the spike of the W — directly references an aloe vera plant.
