I remember pouring over the pages of Tibor Kalman: Perverse Optimist and admiring not only Kalman’s work but the layout and presentation of the book itself. It wasn’t until years later that I connected the dots and realized that Bierut was responsible for the design of that publication. Without even knowing it I was a fan of Michael Bierut.
Bierut is a graphic designer, design critic, and educator. Before becoming a partner in 1990 in the NYC office of Pentagram, Bierut was vice president of graphic design at Vignelli Associates. His work has won hundreds of design awards and is represented in several permanent collections.
I absolutely love the branding that Bierut and his team created for the Museum of Art and Design, using an original typeface created for the task.
