Default [PR] Type Directors Club

If you enjoyed Bembo’s Zoo, you would probably like this (assuming you are in the New York Metropolitan area):

DC Salon:
Type designer as a second job

Frustrations and pleasures of design, from Book jackets, to branding but always maniacal about kerning.

A presentation of the commissioned and self-produced works of Matteo Bologna, Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich, and Will Sthaele.

Date & Time: Thursday 17 February 2005 :: 6:00–8:00 pm
Venue: TDC Offices

Participants :

Matteo Federico Bologna was born in Milano, Italia, in the mezzo-60's, a couple of years before the Valentina typewriter by Olivetti. Bologna moved to New York in time for his thirtieth birthday, and in 1999, he founded Mucca Design (www.muccadesign.com). Bologna is the art director for Rizzoli and BUR in Milano as well as for three imprints of HarperCollins in New York. He and his collaborators design about 700 book covers a year. The studio also designs identities for publishing houses, hotels, and fashionable restaurants, including Balthazar and Pastis. In his spare time he designs typefaces.

Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich [the guy behind Bembo’s Zoo]was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in the very late 50's, just about the same time as the girl from Ipanema. He moved to New York in 1982, on a painting scholarship to the Pratt Institute. He is currently VP/Senior Art Director at HarperCollins, where he is responsible for 1,500 titles annually, of which he personally designs close to 200. In 1999, de Vicq created Bembo's Zoo as a Christmas gift for his daughter Viva—a story featuring a menagerie of animals made from Bembo type characters. The book was subsequently published, inspiring de Vicq and Bologna to collaborate on an animated Web site to promote it (www.bemboszoo.com).

Will Staehle, originally from Wisconsin, grew up reading comics and working summers at his parents' design firm. He graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design with a BFA in Graphic Design and now works as a Design Manager at HarperCollins. In addition to his jacket design work, he uses his design and illustration background to create stylized posters and comics to ensure that he gets as little sleep as possible.
