52 weeks of Inspired Design Decisions #26 — Lester Beall

Throughout 2020, I’ve committed to designing 52 designs for a series of Inspired Design Decisions. This is week 26 and my design this week was inspired by Lester Beall.

Lester Beall was an American modernist graphic designer. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Beall moved to Chicago to study and from there to New York. From his farm in Connecticut, he worked on covers and posters which often featured his distinctive use of photomontage.

While articles about how to use CSS Grid and Flexbox are common, when and why to use them is hardly ever discussed. Very few people are taught design fundamentals or see inspiring examples to learn from. Through this unique “Inspired design decisions” magazine series, Andy Clarke is changing that. Each magazine includes a high quality PDF, plus examples of HTML/CSS code for you to learn from and use in your projects. Only £3.99 per issue. If you’re not 100% happy with any magazine, you get a full refund and can even keep the files.
