  i knew tibor. i hung with him a number of times and we had an occaisional correspondence. he was a great guy, a wonderful thinker, an man of action, a real monketwrencher. and he was always very kind to me. i deeply admired him. he was a GREAT huckster.

that being said, virtually all the stuff he became famous for was done by other really great designers in his employ. he ran the studio and did the front work, his impossibly great staff did the real design work.

case in point: there was a fella name of alexander isley who worked for him waaaaay early at m&co. alex was also instrumental in the design of 'spy' magazine - but i can't recall if that came before or after his stint with tibor. alex pretty much pioneered that "lotsa little info' style of editorial design that became the hallmark of the eighties. it's still powerful and influential today.

anyway, most of that early stuff m&co became famous for ( the 'paper weight', the 'architectural template', the '10/2/4' watch, etc. etc.) was alex's work. and the icky part is that it was all stuff that alex freelanced (a lot for his father's architectural firm) BEFORE he ever worked at m&co. when he joined m&co's employ, his portfolio became tibor's portfolio.

of course, tibor road it straight into design history (and the bank), whereas if alex didn't have the pitch man, all that work would have been obscure.

alex went on to become an extremely successful magazine designer, and is doing quite nicely. he's a modest man, and not demonstrative at all.

but he may be one of the most influential designers of the last quarter century.

and that's how it works in the real world.

  ok, here's a question - how is a poster different from an art print?

i would argue the difference is function. art is a product, a poster is a service. art is an object of muse, a poster is an object of commerce. art has only yourself as a client, a poster has a collaborator as a client.

i think a poster that is done with none of the above denoted restrictions is an art print. and art print that does not have the lack of restrictions listed above is a poster.

i'm not sure whether this is a poster or not. it might be a piece of art that looks like a poster.

crazy talk.

Mono Men Poster - Doublewide, Bellingham

  well, he hung out with some great designers (heh, heh.)

actually over the years, he's schooled himself and become quite good on his own. he did the last lee county killers record cover (uncredited), for instance. i keep trying to get him to just do his own damn covers, but he kind of shrugs it all off.

he designed all of the sir estrus quarterlies over the years. did the whole thing himself.

pretty snappy stuff.

  by the way, for a brief time (about six months) the 3B in bellingham was re-named 'the doublewide'.

  dave crider would be so happy to hear you say that. he did this one himself. it was the very last mono men show - their swan song show.
