Environmental Type by Doyle Partners
Imagine the results of the creative work of a designer that studied under the wings of professors such as Herb Luballin, George Sadek, Milton Glaser and other diamonds of the typographic history. Stephan Doyle, the New York-based creative director of Doyle Partners is one of those miracles in the design community with 25 years of experience. He started working for lifestyle and music magazines like Esquire and Rolling Stone, and there he began to eplore the world of typography and design. In his interview on designboom Doyle gives us an advice worth to remember: “Having to find design oxygen while under duress is the thing that keeps our thinking fresh and the solutions diverse.”
His latest beloved project is enviromental graphics, mainly typography on public spaces, which is fascinating because, as he mentions, much like the work in magazines it involves "a story-telling to people who you don't know; creating work for people to discover and cherish". This kind of commitment is a wonderful chance for Doyle's studio to make something out of paper, experiment with materials and a good reminder that every project demands its own media and has its own requirements. The typographic compositions are bold, solid and above all impressive, transfering their message clearly, using straight compositions or anamorphic technique. There is no doubt that everyone can notice these statements, either on the Yankee Stadium, or on the Times Square, the Grand Central Terminal of New York and the New York Aquarium Installation. Here we present you just a small part of the studio's work, however you better check his portfolio for updates and this interview (source) for details.
