September Industry is featuring the photography work of Chris Sisarich, and it is nothing short of breathtaking. It’s the sort of sweeping scale and simplicity that forces you to look and look, as if the meaning of everything might be tucked into it. Beautiful.
Andrew Zuckerman, photographer and copyright proponent, just released a book titled Bird. The book is comprised of extraordinary, high-resolution photographs that capture birds on white backgrounds. There are also a series of films that accompany the book. You can watch previews on the Bird web site or Vimeo.
Triboro Design has been receiving some much deserved press recently, including a feature in September Industry. Triboro is powered by the dynamic married duo of Stefanie Weigle and David Heasty.

“Design is directed toward human beings. To design is to solve human problems by identifying them and executing the best solution.”
There is something about Louis Fili’s work that is absolutely flawless, and this logo, with its mathematical symmetry and emotional elegance, captures it perfectly. It is both extraordinarily refined and seemingly effortless, like the letters were meant to embrace each other. However, from the woman who designed the Good Housekeeping logo, I suppose that it is to be expected.
