Respected graphic designer, Lance Wyman is popularly known as the man behind the visual branding of the 1968 Mexico Olympics. Some say his work for that project cemented his legacy in the design world. Like any other creative, Mr. Wyman drafted his ideas and earlier concepts for logos and images on notebooks first before processing them on a larger scale. Tony Brook and Adrian Shaughnessy, founders of Unit Editions, discovered Wyman’s “designlogs” during their research for another Lance Wyman book they previously worked on. Having photographed every page, the duo are now looking to publish the iconic designer’s works through a release of a glossy book. The title for the project is Lance Wyman: The Visual Diaries 1973—1982.

“The reason I started [the notebooks] is because I wanted to keep some kind of a record of what I was doing as far as keeping in touch with the complexity of the design I was getting into,” Wyman reveals. “I had just gotten back from Mexico and that was a complicated bunch of work, but it was also directing the Olympics, the Metro, and the World Cup. We had a lot of diverse projects, and it was all in one spot, in one group, and I think the logs really helped me keep my part in all that.”

The publishing of the book can only be made if its Kickstarter campaign reaches its goal, so consider a pledge and spread the word if you want this project to come into fruition.
