Bob Gill

Bob Gill website

I enjoyed looking through Bob Gill’s website. Born in Brooklyn in 1931, the renowned graphic designer has a talent for turning project briefs into memorable, appropriate, witty outcomes.

Ecumenical (today’s new word) = general, universal.

I missed the release of his latest book, Bob Gill, so far, published by Laurence King in October last year, but there’s a copy in the post so I’ll share a few thoughts and spreads when it arrives.

Update: 07 August 2012
Here’s my post about the book.

A couple of other logos (for AGM and Television Associates) are over on Logo Design Love.

More good work on his site.

  1. haha those are some creative and witty little drawings. Its always great to learn and find out and a new designer. Thanks for sharing

  2. (I meant logos) sorry for the double post.

  3. Malcom Swatridge introduced me to Bob Gill back in 1990. I’ve been a fan ever since. The way he redefined the brief to find the solution was genius.

    I got Bob, Alan Fletcher and Colin Forbes to sign my business card at a talk a few years ago just before Alan died.

    He’s one of my design hero’s along with Robert Brownjohn, Minale Tattersfield…

  4. He’s brilliant! So funny! Thanks for the introduction to him, I shall keep an eye out for his books.

  5. Awesome post! Thanks!
