Today in History: first .com Domain registered in 1985

Symbolics.com was the first.com website. What did we do before the internet? Probably went down the pub more often actually spoke to people face to face! But we also didn’t have the wonders of eBay, email, Facebook… there’s a lot to thank the web for. It’s been 30 years since the first .com domain was registered. Symbolics.com was registered on March 15, 1985, by computer development company Symbolics Computer Corporation. These days the website offers facts about business and internet history.

Today in History: Lucian Bernhard born in 1883

Today in History: Lucian Bernhard born in 1883

Lucian Bernhard (March 15, 1883 – May 29, 1972) was a German graphic and type designer during the first half of the twentieth century. He was influential in helping create the design style known as Plakatstil (Poster Style), which used reductive imagery and flat-color as well as Sachplakat (‘object poster’) which restricted the image to advertising simply the object and its brand name. Among his most famous works were poster designs for Stiller shoes, Manoli cigarettes, and Priester matches.

49 years ago today, the first World Exposition in Asia was opened in Osaka (Japan). The theme of the exhibition was “Progress and Harmony for Mankind.” Almost 80 states and countless organizations devoted themselves to focus on communication and exhibited the latest developments and designs: wireless communication, video and screen phones were outstanding technical achievements. Nearly 65 million people visited the fair, providing the organizers with a net income of 52 million dollars, a record profit for any World’s Fair.

Today is National Learn About Butterflies Day

Today is National Learn About Butterflies Day

Observed annually, March 14th is National Learn About Butterflies Day. Spring and summer are just right around the corner, so it is a good time to take a few minutes and learn something new about butterflies and appreciate their beauty. Butterflies need our help to survive as they rely on flowers and other natural sources for survival. We can help them by planting more flowers. Did you know there are more than 20,000 types of butterflies worldwide?

Their wing spans can range from 1/2 inch to 11 inches. In their adult stage, butterflies can live from a week to nearly a year, depending on the species. Many butterflies migrate over long distances. Particularly famous migrations are those of the Monarch butterfly from Mexico to the northern USA and southern Canada, a distance of about 2500 to 3000 miles.

Today in History: Lester Beall born in 1903!

American graphic designer Lester Thomas Beall (1903-1969) would have turned 116 today. Beall was one of the leading contributors to the modern movement in American 20th century graphic design. Beall was born in Kansas City and grew up in Chicago. He studied at the University of Chicago where he became interested in typography and Bauhaus design elements. He moved home and office to New York and then Connecticut in the mid-1930s where he began his career as an art director. Among his clients were the International Paper Company, Merrill Lynch, and the New York Hilton. Beall is perhaps best known for his poster series for the United States Government’s Rural Electrification Administration during the 1930s.
