Illustrating each personality with simple lines, bold shades and signature emblems, the “Re-Vision” project is an “exercise in style and synthesis” according to its creators. See some of our favorite postcards from the series below and head over to the studio’s website for the entire collection.

A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

See some of our favorite postcards from the series below and head over to the studio’s website for the entire collection.  Our inventions make it possible to explore the secret shape of our subject material, to coax it into saying more.

Content precedes design

Intuitiveness can be broken down into a sort of ladder, or a cake with three layers: legibility at the top, metaphor in the middle, and skills at the bottom. By way of example, the concept of scrolling (which we hardly give any thought to) relies on all of them:

  1. It has to be legible. Legibility is about having cues or signals that are unambiguous and recognizable.
  2. Metaphor is the framing concept. In the case of scrolling, either you think of a scroll (the papyrus kind!), where one end rolls up and the other end unrolls to reveal more text, or you think of a window in space that you pan around.
  3. Skills are the motor skills that you pick up. It’s the physical ability to click your mouse on up/down arrows, or to slide your finger across the scroll wheel.

For better or worse, we live in a world of media invention. Instead of reusing a stable of forms over and over, it’s not much harder for us to create new ones. Let’s buy this theme.

Paul Kafner: Driving “Breaking The Mold!”

Picking up my sword I leaned upon it, looking down on the dead body of my foeman, and as I thought of the battle I had just fought and won a great idea was born in my brain—the outcome of this and the suggestion.

It is a purely lyrical process. A kind of musical shriving of the soul, in which there is an encrustation of material which flows forth again in notes, just as the lyrical poet pours himself out in verse.

The List: Pascal & His Ford Mustang

The 1968 Mustang receives little change cosmetically. The galloping pony emblem is integrated more subtly into the hollowed grille; chrome block „Ford“ letters disappear from the hood; reflectors, adjacent to the front and rear bumpers, are added. The side scoops were thin chrome pieces, and „Mustang“ on the fenders was written in script rather than block letters. 1968 was the first year for shoulder seat belts.

Powertrain changes are more dramatic. The 302 cid V8 replaces the venerable 289 cid V8. The 302 becomes one of Mustang’s best-known blocks due to its longevity; it would stay in the lineup until 1995, with the exception of the 1974 and 1981 model years. A Motorcraft carbureted 427 cid V8 overpowers the next closest block, the 428 cid V8, making 390 horsepower at 4,600 rpm.

Combined with the GT’s standard front disc brakes, performance tires, heavy-duty suspension, and dual exhaust with chrome quad outlets, the engine elevated this pony car it its raciest version yet. New cosmetics also were included for 1968, with new styled steel wheels in chrome or painted silver with special GT hub caps, and new « C » stripe that accented the side scoop.

The West Coast-only Mustang GT/California Special was available in 1968. The car was available only in coupe form. The Shelby-inspired car had the same grille, fog lamps, and rear fascia as the Shelby models from that year. « GT/CS » was printed on the Shelby-style side scoops. The wheels were the same as GT wheels, but without the GT center caps. Only 251 High Country Specials were produced, and they were all coupes.

Shelby production moves from California to Michigan. Shelby hires the A.O. Smith Company to make the Shelby Mustang conversions. The GT-350 and GT-500KR each receive Cobra snake emblems.
