Illustrator/Designer Week 3 – Ray Eames

Blog, Design, Illustrator/Designer of the week, Print, Visits, Visual Communication

We went to see the Charles and Ray Eames exhibition at the Barbican last Friday, and obviously they were both incredible. But I found her design work for Arts & Architecture really amazing. Along with her drawings/paintings, textile designs and other design work, namely promotional pieces for the furniture they made.

Something very striking, graphic, clear and serious yet somehow still a little playful about it all(the adverts for the mesh chair with the blackbird decoy).

She did a lot of mixed media, combining drawing mixed with collage, photography, and letter press.

Have a look for yourself…
