全球最棒的平面设计公司,42年来做的纪念卡片都在这里

石玉 2015-12-24 18:30:00

它们每年都以此作为礼物送给客户或者伙伴。42年,你也能看出诸多变迁。

五角国际设计事务所(Pentagram)成立于 1972 年,是一家很有历史的设计公司。从 1974 年起,每年年末,他们都会设计一些小册子和卡片,送给客户、朋友和同事们。到今年,这些册子已连续推出 41 年了,所以卡片积攒了五花八门的主题,从食谱到折纸指南,从星座到个性化字体。

说五角设计是家公司,倒不如说它是一个设计联盟。它前身是五十年代末期成立的“ Fletcher 与 Forbes ”公司,创始人是 Alan Fletcher 和 Colin Forbes 。经过一些年的发展,这间小公司开始接纳新的合作伙伴,并将公司名字改为五角设计(Pentagram),主要从事平面、建筑和工业设计。

Pentagram 采取平等合作的原则,加入公司的设计师都属于合伙人,他们彼此独立,各自负责自己的设计小组和项目。这些年,新加入公司的设计师大多是在行业内已树立了一定名声、在业务上已有实际经验的人。目前公司的合伙人有 19 位。如今他们在伦敦、纽约、旧金山和和奥斯汀等地设有 5 个工作室,做了许多大型项目。

如文章开头所说,Pentagram 的新年问候非常有趣,是通过卡片传达的。“我们的卡片强调的是家庭团聚的趣味性,绝对、绝对不是为了推销自己。” 合伙人之一的 Michael Bierut 说,他从 1990 年起就开始在 Pentagram 工作了。每一年,19 位合伙人中的一人会承担卡片的设计工作,他先是在全体大会上提出粗略提案,大家提意见,该设计师再在几个月后的秋季会议上提交最终版本。

2009 年,设计师 John Rushworth 和 Naresh Ramchandani 设计了与卡片相对应的性格字体测验; 2010 年,设计师 Angus Hyland 设计了一个优雅的小册子,它是一种罕见的字谜,可以供全家人合作着玩;而今年,Angus Hyland 和他的团队再次承载了设计卡片的任务,来看看过去 41 年里的卡片吧:
