September 7, Jennifer Morla is a legend in her own time: Now, Morla is the subject of a forthcoming biography being published by Letterform Archive.
Morla graciously answered a few questions recently about the book, the importance of listening to clients, and whether words remain as important as art in our increasingly image-saturated world. Your book is the second book to be published by Letterform Archive, following on the heels of W.
A Life in Design. How did your project come about? It seemed like the appropriate time for me to discuss my design approach and identify the issues that I consider when formulating my design process. Letterform Archive showed an immediate interest in publishing my monograph and has been a true partner in bringing this book to print. Those events, coupled with my ability to draw, solidified my decision to become a designer.
What is it like to know your work will exist in perpetuity in institutions like the LIbrary of Congress and is considered a touchstone of American design? It is very, very humbling. I consider myself so very fortunate to have had clients who have collaborated with me in defining communication goals without defining the solution.
Was yours an artistic household? Growing up in Manhattan, I imagine you took great advantage of your surroundings. What were or remain your New York design influences? My mother was an art history major and would take us to museums often when we were young.
One of my favorites was the Guggenheim, an architectural icon, so very different from any other museum in the city. Another big influence was The New York Times. In , the Vietnam War was raging and political images proliferated all around the city: What was that leap like? Was it challenging going from a nonprofit to a commercial entity? The biggest difference was design budget.
At the PBS station, the creative budgets were so tight that I hand-cut rubylith [masking film] to save money. I handled every project from beginning to end: Both jobs were extremely informative and gave me the confidence to open my design studio at 28 years old.
Does good design change with the times, or are their classic elements that never go out of style? Great design is, quite simple, innovation that reflects the spirit of an era and becomes a classic because of its timeless appeal. Although I can see some influence of a certain time period in my work, I have always maintained that design should be appropriate to the problem rather than a stylistic conceit.
I hope the work shown in the book is a testament to that belief. It seems our society is moving away from verbal communication towards more visual marketing and communication. Has this trend changed how you work? Or do words remain as relevant as ever? As designers, we often underestimate the impact we have on the world at large, and how our visual vocabulary is influenced by political, social and cultural events. I created Designisms, a listing of my observations and reflections on design and designing.
Specific to your question, a designism: Words are as important as images and images can be more powerful than words. I always start with sketching. The final sketches identify the solution, including typeface considerations, color, illustrative style and final form. I often consider whether the solution can be accomplished with just type. Oh yes, I believe in allowing the process to help define the solution.
And accidents are an important part of the process. Only the creator can identify when an accident, something you did not expect, adds an informative detail to the solution. Not a collector at all, I am a minimalist. But I do love to read and read about 50 books a year. I guess I collect books. I especially like fiction and my list of favorites is vast: When my girls were in eighth grade, I read what they were reading and I got to fall in love again with Huckleberry Finn and Pride and Prejudice.
Could you talk a little about the design process for Morla: It is encased in vegan white leather with a vacuum-formed cover. What do you hope the design of your book will convey to readers? That design is not only about two dimensional space, that form can surprise and generate curiosity.
I relish experimenting with materials; the vacuum-formed and debossed covers both are seductive and amplify the pattern cover art. Fluorescent inks act as chapter dividers and bring attention to the section of the book I dedicated to my best loved typefaces and characters.
