Franco Grignani: Art as Design 1950–1990

Today I visited the Estorick Collection of modern Italian art to see the Franco Grignani exhibition. Famous for his Woolmark symbol, I was delighted to learn more about Grignani, who designed some remarkable graphic and typographic arrangements, employing gestalt principles and optical effects. Well worth a visit and the accompanying catalogue provides a rich visual account of his work between 1950 and 1990.
