that's my brother....


the MUSEUM OF ART AND DESIGN (formerly the museum of arts and crafts) opened in new york city this weekend. i wasn't there, but i'm sure my brother was. pentegram (and, my brother, kai's team at pentagram) did the graphic identity for the museum. on kai's website, he shared a link to pentagram's blog sharing the design package. nice! it's fun to see Michael Beirut's sketches and how things are translated to things like window decals, jewelry boxes, museum guides ... and ties! the "mad man" wearing the tie is kai! (he's also the guy in the spinning entrance.) i must admit that i have been living vicariously through him - working in manhattan, living in brooklyn -- the nyc dream. as much as i wanted to live it myself, i'm glad one of us gets to do it! (so proud of that guy!)

I really like that renovation. I think Allied Works Architecture's work is getting better and better.
The graphic design for the project is strong too. Your brother is so talented. What a great opportunity -working in new york for such a respected firm. Can I live vicariously through him too?:)
