Needed Items[edit]

Okay, first of all I'm struggling to find a copyright-free picture of Lubalin. Everyone seems to use the AIGA portrait, and I can't figure out who took the picture in the first place.

Second, this article needs a theory section. Lubalin was big into the multiple layers of communicative value you could strike with type, which is most clearly illustrated in his logos (Avant Garde literally moves forward, Families has a family in it, etc) but can be seen elsewhere. Mostly he was taking type as abstract as he thought was possible before you would start to lose meaning, as opposed to the postmodern typographers that shoved type over the edge (another topic that needs more explanation on Wikipedia, but whatever).

If anyone wants to start on that I'd be grateful. Otherwise, parse my writing for grammar if you have the time. Thanks! --RadariG 20:10, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Some basic problems[edit]

I'll do some grammar work but I don't know anything about the guy, so somebody needs to give that second stray paragraph a home.

Actually now they need to give that bottom paragraph I re-hashed a home as well.

There were a bunch of meaningless cuts, so I reverted to my last edit. Thanks for your help on the page!--RadariG 15:16, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Avantgardelogo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Avantgardelogo.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 21:54, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
