WILLIAM ADDISON DWIGGINS. Dwiggins is probably most noted for coining the term ‘Graphic Designer’ in 1922 which he used in reference to himself. His work encompassed book design, lettering, typography and calligraphy. He created several typefaces including two that are still used often today for the Linotype corporation Electra and Caledonia. Dwiggins was a man of many skills and did not limit himself to one trade, although he said that he would like to most be remembered for his type design. In 1928 he wrote and published the book ‘Layout in Advertising’ which, at the time, was considered to be the reference text for the field. He used his time away from work to construct a set of 12” marionettes and a marionette theatre, all carved by hand out of wood. The company with which he spent the most time was Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., which was acquired by Random House in 1960. There he designed a total of 329 books, seventeen of which were chosen as AIGA selections. He worked up until the last two years of his life. Always a man who took lightly of himself, he remained jovial until his death on Christmas day in 1956.

Another Dwiggins piece. This was initially well out of my price range, but the coincidental timing of a sale and a generous receivable brought it home. What makes this especially significant for me is that it was P. J. Conkwright's copy, and signed by Dwiggins, Hermann Puterschein and Dorothy Abbe. Conkwright was for many years (1938-1970) the typographic director of Princeton University Press, and he brought elegance, readability and charm to the densely self-serious field of scholarly printing. The least of his many attributes is that he is one of my personal typographic heroes, though don't hold that against him. Dorothy Abbe later designed books for PUP, and I have a photocopy of a wonderful letter from Dwiggins bringing her to Conkwright's attention. A nice showing of Dwiggins's experimental typeface Winchester, pleasantly afflicted with an incurable case of halfuncialitis.

Currently neck-deep in @brucekennettstudio 's magical monograph of William Addison Dwiggins, published by @letterformarchive. According to Bruce, one of WAD's less widely celebrated gifts was for a kind of gentleman's cartography, essentially treasure maps leading into the deepest interior of Dwiggins's Amazonian imagination. Here is a small one exemplifying a similarly neglected genre, the spoofing tribute, in honor of his friend and fellow alphabetic polymath Frederic Goudy and printed for The Typophiles by the Pynson Printers. The virtuosity of this book meets Dwiggins at eye level. Take a bow, Bruce! You too, Letterform Archive! #dwiggins#wad#williamaddisondwiggins#brucekennett#brucekennettstudio#goudy#pynsonprinters#typophiles#cartography#maps#paper#ephemera#letterformarchive

19/30 Day + William Addison Dwiggins . William Addison "Willie" Dwiggins is an American type designer, calligrapher, and book designer. Dwiggins is probably most noted for coining the term 'Graphic Designer' in 1922 which he used in reference to his various activities in printed communications, like book design, illustration, typography, lettering, and calligraphy. A few years later, he joined Linotype and designed his first typeface named Metro, a modern sans serif made in response to similar European typeface being sold such as Futura, Erbar, and Gill Sans. Later he made two more typefaces, Electra and Caledonia. Although he wanted to be recognized by his type design, his book "Layout in Advertising" (1928) was more successful than his work on type design, which at that time became the standard for the advertising industry. . The logo mostly inspired by Metropolitan Museum of Art's beautifully-made poster design that combined the use of regular sans serif and italic sans serif. My second inspiration came from the bank notes he designs for Antipodes, that beautifully combined uppercase sans serif with lowercase sans serif. I choose not to make any Wiggin's decorative illustration because, at that time, I already have an idea of designing a newspaper logo. Which is not necessarily required any illustration on the logo. What do you think? 😁 . .

Lahir di Ohio pada tahun 1880, William Addison Dwiggins belajar seni di Chicago, dan pada tahun 1904 menetap di Hingham, Massachusetts, untuk melanjutkan karirnya. ▪ Pada tahun-tahun awal, Dwiggins melakukan sebagian besar karyanya dalam periklanan. Dan pada tahun 1928, ia menulis Layout in Advertising. ▪ Percaya bahwa kemunculan mesin sama sekali tidak sesuai dengan keunggulan artistik, Dwiggins merancang metode untuk menggunakan teknologi baru ini untuk keuntungan artistik. ▪ Dwiggins mungkin paling terkenal karena mencipkan istilah 'Desainer Grafis' pada tahun 1922 yang ia gunakan sebagai referensi pada dirinya sendiri. Istilah tersebut tidak mencapai penggunaan yang meluas sampai setelah Perang Dunia Kedua. . .
