The inaugural exhibition in the newly re-located Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography.
Herb Lubalin (1918–1981) is best known for his wildly illustrative typography and his groundbreaking work for the magazines Avant Garde, Eros, and Fact.
On view in Cooper Union’s new gallery, the installation includes recent posters, publications, and motion graphics by internationally recognized graphic designers that spotlight an emerging trend toward expressive lettering and typography.
Original sketches, magazines, logotypes, and posters selected from the Lubalin Center Archive will illuminate Lubalin’s influence on contemporary graphic design.

Since all of you are making posters, this is the perfect place for you to see and examine type in real life, up close and personal finally, not on a computer screen. This will show you what real graphic designers can do, not the work of hacks you see on most of the subways, buses and billboards! It's not for another 3 and 1/2 weeks, but please remember to go. The exhibit is held at the Lubalin Center. The center also showcases several other amazing designers such as Marian Bantjes, Non-Format, Matt Owens, and HunterGatherer.
