3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Gail Cooke HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 15, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Few have had as varied and successful career as Bob Gill. One can only imagine how he came from working in a 6 x 10 room in NYC furnished with only a bed, a chair, an upright piano, a drawing table and a multitude of orange crates to winning an ADC Gold Medal. Nonetheless he did. And along the way he led a band while still in his early teens, served in the Army, was advised to forget design and become a photographer, wrote children's books, was a filmmaker, and taught.
Surely I've left out a great dealt but perhaps most importantly to those interested in the communication arts he developed his own philosophy which was to try to create an original image for every assignment. Further, he thought that "the most likely way of doing that was to forget all `good design' preconceptions and let each new problem suggest a solution." How right he was as can be seen in his latest book "Words Into Pictures."
Opening with a pictorial alphabet from France dated 1596 he proceeds to the more contemporary with over 100 logos, ad details, album covers, and posters (don't miss the pharmaceutical ad details or the birth announcement).
Words Into Pictures is a treat for both the eye and the intellect. Enjoy!
