Peter Mendelsund’s Mind

Since the beginning of this course I’ve been looking for designers who manage to convey a lot of meaning through very simple, beautiful designs. One artist I’ve returned to over and over again is Peter Mendelsund. Mendelsund’s designs are always smart, beautiful and so simple. He uses colors and shapes so sparingly, but his work elicits powerful responses every time. I particularly love the book jackets he made for the Kafka collection.
