Happy Birthday, Raymond Savignac (1907 – 2002)

Happy Birthday, Raymond Savignac (1907 – 2002)

The Parisian poster artist would be 110 years old if he were still alive today.

We have always been fascinated with the poster art by Raymond Savignac. The French artist began his career in 1935 at the Alliance Graphique under the supervision of Cassandre. He gained fame in 1949 with the publication of his first major poster, Mon Savon. As he states in his autobiography: “I was born as the age of 41, weaned on the udder of the Monsavon cow.” Savignac’s strength was combining a complex concept in a simple design, combined with humor. He is said to be among France’s most influential poster artists of the past fifty years.

Today in History: Donald Brun born in 1909

Today in History: Donald Brun born in 1909

Happy Birthday, Donald Brun! The Swiss graphic designer would have turned 108 today. Brun was born in Basel in 1909. During his apprenticeship as a graphic illustrator in the late 1920s, Brun celebrated his first successes as a poster artist when he won a Basel poster competition for “baths” in 1928. Between the 1930s and 1970s, Brun created hundreds of poster designs, mainly for consumer goods. Among his clients were such renowned companies as Bata, Bell, Gauloise, Persil or Swissair. His posters are marked by a subtle sense of humor and solid craftsmanship. In 1952, Brun became co-founder of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI). He passed away in Clarens in 1999.

Today is National Cat Day

Today is National Cat Day

National Cat Day was initiated by Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate, Colleen Paige, in 2005 to make the the public recognize the enormous number of cats that need rescuing. They were first domesticated in the Middle East’s Fertile Crescent as early as 12,000 years ago. When humans relied on hunting as their main source of food, dogs were most useful – but when the first agricultural societies emerged, cats became invaluable. Domesticated cats became responsible for keeping grain stores free of mice and other rodents. Today, cats can be found in 34% of American households, making them the most popular house pet in the United States.

Today is National Beer Day!

National American Beer Day is observed annually (or sometimes more often) by beer drinkers across the nation. Celebrate and enjoy your favorite beer! And remember: always drink responsibly and never drink and drive! Beer is the most popular alcoholic drink in the United States, where over 2,500 breweries produce more than 6 billion gallons annually. Breweries across America include large, well-known brands, regional beers, and increasingly popular craft breweries. American beer is produced in a variety of styles, but the most popular is a pale lager. Other common styles include brown ale, IPA, porter, and stout. Fun fact: Americans drink more than 50 billion pints of beer each year—enough to fill 1 out of every 25 residential in-ground pools in the U.S.!

Today in History: Robert Rauschenberg is born in 1925

Today in History: Robert Rauschenberg is born in 1925

92 years ago today, American painter and graphic artist, Robert Rauschenberg, was born in Port Arthur, Texas. He studied art in Kansas (1946-1947), Paris (1947) and at Black Mountain College in North Carolina under Joseph Albers (1948-1950). Rauschenberg was based in New York City and is perhaps best known for his influence on pop art of the 1960s, constantly questioning the distinction between art and everyday objects. The eclectic artist often combined sculpture and paint in his works. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, he experimented with collage and photography. Rauschenberg died from heart failure in 2008.
