Gill sans special effects

Bob Gill has finally crammed some of his best work into one book for the ultimate drool tool. Timeless ideas in logo's and artwork is not his only strengths - telling the stories on how he achieves them is one of his others, as anyone who has been to his lectures knows. A remake of "Forget All the Rules of Graphic Design" has finally been published. Anyone in advertising would get a kick out of this book, from copywriter to designer, as it's irreverant and intelligent. Not to mention full of cool ideas to steal -.. *ahem* get inspired by.. Read more to see some examples... Ps - The publication of Unspecial Effects for Graphic Designers will coincide with a major exhibition of Gill's design and illustration at the School of Visual Arts Museum, 209 East 23rd Street in Manhattan. The exhibition opens Monday, November 5th, from 6-8pm.

An American TV network musical special to raise funds for the recent terrorists attacks causes a massive disruption in the ego-gravitational field surrounding planet earth. Astrologists and ego-physicists speculate that the sheer number of massive egos at the musical special caused a disturbance in the normal, Gaussian distribution of egos in the universe.

Dabitch adds: Mark Waites from Mother lets us know that the ads were co-director by Peluca (out of Buenos Aires, Argentina) and Mother, and "we did it because if you're going to do an agency Xmas card why not produce one that gets talked about." It is very funny indedeed and very well done - big cheers for Chris Christmas Rodriguez - he's got my vote!
