Going With The Grain.

I've recently discovered this really cool site called Grain Edit when they ever so kindly included me in their Twitter list of their 50 or so favorite design-related Tweeters. This list isn’t exhaustive, it’s just a little peek at who’s tweeting about design, and I so appreciated being included in such nice company! Based in Oakland, California, Grain Edit is focused on classic design work from the 1950s-1970s and contemporary designers that draw inspiration from that time period. Their site content includes wonderful interviews with graphic designers (like some of these below), articles, designers’ libraries as well as examples of rare design annuals, type specimens, Ephemera, posters and vintage kids books from our bookshelves. Check out Grain edit, and follow them on Twitter, too!

Interview with Frank Chimero.
