    Found this excellent portrait of Josef Müller Brockmann by Joanne Meister. Brockmann is one of my personal favourites when it comes to Graphic Design. I discovered him when I was a student. Over the years I’ve bought  a handful of books of his works both graphic and of course this reference to minimalist work. One that should be a part of every serious designers library out there. There is actually a modern interpretation of this towards the digital era (when benchmarking) that I find extremely useful when putting order on grids digitally. A combination of the two will take you a long way. It is called Ordering Disorder and written by Khoi Vinh (Former Creative Directori of NYT)

    A nice little summary of his impact in Graphic Design. There is also some good reference literature included.

    Enjoy!
