Some wonderful design work by Bob Noorda (1927 – 2010). I came across this feature and this one on the Display website a few days ago, excellent reads and selection of Noorda’s work. Great typography at work, limited color palette and beautiful linework. Just look at those icons for Touring Club Italiano. Can’t get enough.
Mr. Noorda’s best-known work in the United States was for the New York City Transit Authority, which in 1966 commissioned his firm, Unimark International, to modernize and unify the look of the subway system’s signs. The firm had been recommended by Mildred Constantine, an influential design curator at the Museum of Modern Art.
The images and captions above were taken from Display, and I urge you to have a look at the features above for more information on Noorda and his life in design.
