Today in History: Josef Müller-Brockmann born in 1914

Today in History: Josef Müller-Brockmann born in 1914

Josef Müller-Brockmann studied architecture, design and history of art at the Kunstgewerbeschule and the University in Zurich. At the age of 22, he opened his own studio with a focus on graphic design, exhibition design and photography. His objective design practices led to the breakthrough of the “Swiss Style” during the 1950s. In 1958, Müller-Brockmann became the founder and co-editor (until 1965) of the journal Neue Grafik (New Graphic Design), spreading the principles of Swiss Design internationally. Müller-Brockmann never allowed his designs to be influenced by trends or styles but followed his own aesthetics and ethics. His posters provided numerous institutions and companies with a convincing graphic appearance and became a model in their quality. Müller-Brockmann passed away on August 30, 1996 in Zurich.

International Tuba Day — 10 am

International Tuba Day

Today is International Tube Day (celebrated on the first Friday of each year). We do not play the tuba and know little about the instrument’s history (you can learn all about the tube at http://www.tubaday.com) but we did want to show this very cool poster from the early 1960s, so the headline seemed appropriate.

Today is International Jazz Day!

Today is International Jazz Day!

When Louis Armstrong was asked what the definition of jazz was, he famously replied “If you’ve got to ask, you’ll never know.” Today is a worldwide day of celebration of jazz and its unique history. The official birthplace of jazz is New Orleans, although some say it began in Chicago or Kansas City. Jazz music combines traditional African American and European music styles. As jazz music caught on worldwide, it took hints from many different national and regional cultures to become what it is today. There are dozens of jazz genres including bebop, Dixieland, Latin, ragtime, soul, and swing. International Jazz Day was created in 1991 by musician D. Michael Denny, at which time a statement was recorded by the U.S. Congressional Record to officially recognize this day. To enjoy International Jazz Day, sit back, relax, and listen to your favorite jazz tunes!

Today is Zipper Day

Today is Zipper Day

From handbags and jackets to trousers and boots, it really is impossible to imagine life without zippers. They are so widespread it is easy to take them for granted. This is where Zipper Day comes along to remind us of the origin and history of this truly omnipresent invention. The exact birthday of the zipper is debated, but Zipper Day is traditionally celebrated on April 29. On that date in 1913, Swedish-American scientist and inventor Gideon Sundback received a patent for a curious contraption he called “hook-less fastener”. Although similar inventions had been around since the 1850s, his version is widely accepted as the first modern zipper. The continuous fastening line found numerous applications and grew in popularity, also thanks to the US Army who stepped in as an early adopter. Functional, fashionable, infinitely adjustable – these qualities of Sundback’s design have helped popularize the invention and practically make every day Zipper Day.
