10 Levels of Intimacy in Communication

NYC-based designer Ji Lee visualizes 10 ways we communicate in the digital age.

Li states:
The digital age has transformed the ways in which we communicate with each other. The combination of technology and power of information brings new ways on HOW, WITH WHOM and WHY we communicate. We are connected with more people than ever before. Do more options to communicate with each other connect us or alienate us more?

An Iconic Lion unveiled at NYC Library

The New York Public Library
recently unveiled a new logo that was designed in-house under the direction of the NYPL’s Art Director, Marc Blaustein. The redesign keeps many of the original elements, but is graphically simplified which gives it a contemporary look while still maintaining the sense of pride and dignity that the old mark evoked. Well done!
