- in memoriam
ico-D mourns the loss of Charles "Chuck" Harrison (1931-2018), industrial designer and educator who is famous for his transformation of the View-Master toy and the plastic trash can. As a freelancer, staff and ultimately Head of Design at Sears Roebuck & Company, Charles shaped the everyday lives of Americans through the hundreds of household and workplace goods he designed in the era following World War II through the mid-1980s.
Issue 10 includes content from Educgraphic, Icograda's first meeting in North America, investigating design education and standardisation issues as well as how to create design teaching aids for youth. Symbol conventions to represent unemployed men and women during the Depression era seem controversial today, but offer intriguing visual imagery, situating this issue in time, as does an isotype chart of showing births and deaths in Vienna and an exploration of the history Bauhaus 56 years after its founding by Moholy-Nagy.
