Minimalist TV Show Posters by Albert Exergian by Rodd Zinberg

Created out of a love for Posters, Modernism and Television, there wasn't a client out there to commission such a job so Austrian designer Albert Exergian wrote his own brief and created this self initiated series of posters throwing all of the above inspirations into the creative melting pot.

Girl Walk // All Day by Rodd Zinberg

The idea behind Girl Walk // All Day emerged from our desire to expand the boundaries around the idea of the traditional music video, which usually spans the length of a single track. This album-length piece will feature a talented group of dancers across a range of public and private spaces around New York City, turning the city's sidewalks and obstacles into part of an evolving improvisational dance routine. 

The piece will be available for free online in short, serialized segments and we also plan to screen the full-length film in public spaces, and at festivals, concerts, parties, and beyond — beginning in October 2011 — inspiring an interactive viewing experience that will evolve into a series of dance parties around the globe.

Andy Gilmore by Rodd Zinberg

A master of color and geometric composition, Andy Gilmore's work is often characterized as kaleidoscopic and hypnotic, though it could just as well be described as visually acoustic, his often complex arrangements referencing the scales and melodies in music.

Gilmore’s journey toward this masterful style followed a long and winding road. He characterizes his pursuit of education as a tangled web, noting the bookstores, bakeries, and theaters where he worked were of more importance than the schools he attended in pursuit of his BFA, which he received from SUNY Empire State College.

After finishing school, Gilmore relocated to San Clemente, California, where he took up work for FourStar Distribution, resizing print ads for C1RCA Footwear and Forum Snowboards. It would serve as his introduction to the computer and lay the foundation for a career in digital art and design.

Andy Gilmore’s extensive list of clients includes Wired Magazine, The New York Times, Fast Company, Wallpaper*, Warp Records, and yes, Ghostly International. He currently lives and works in Rochester, New York.

On Typography by Rodd Zinberg

I don’t think that type should be expressive at all. I can write the word ‘dog’ with any typeface & it doesn’t have to look like a dog. But there are people that think when they write ‘dog’ it should bark.
— Massimo Vignelli

He has also famously said that there are way too many typefaces in the world and that there are only about a dozen worth using.
