Please Make This Look Nice

Please Make This Look Nice: The Graphic Design Process was authored and designed by AHL&CO Principal Peter Ahlberg following a two-year long research period in which he interviewed numerous graphic design professionals about their individual processes. Published by Skira Rizzoli in 2016, the book features interviews with Michael Bierut, Experimental Jetset, Paul Sahre, Natasha Jen, Milton Glaser, Karlssonwilker, Maira Kalman, Ed Fella, Seymour Chwast, Abbott Miller, Elliott Earls, Post Typography, Gail Anderson, Nicholas Blechman, John Gall, Stephen Doyle, Bob Gill, Chermayeff & Geismar, James Victore, Paula Scher, and Stefan Sagmeister. It also contains images of previously unpublished process-based work from the archives of these same designers, as well as Erik Carter, Dress Code [Dan Covert + Andre Andreev], Alan Fletcher, Ji Lee, Oliver Munday, Joe Newton, Sally Thurer, and ZutAlors! [Frank DeRose + Brendan Griffiths]. Additional texts include an introduction by Peter Ahlberg and a foreword by Brett Littman, former Executive Director of The Drawing Center, where the corresponding exhibition was held in early 2016.
