  5. 5. WeAdmire Neville Brody The name Brody on the T Shirt was taken from the graphic on the cover of one of his books on graphic design. We Admire is picked out vertically in red and also in the horizontal lines. The font Arcadia is blurred suggesting “read between the lines” with Blur being highlighted in red. Next
  6. 6. WeAdmire - Mods Mods are a romantic notion of a stylish youth subculture inspired by Satre and existentialism; fans of soul, ska, r&b and beat music and coffee bars. Colin MacInnes author of the novel Absolute Beginners introduces the main character as being a young British stylish jazz fan who dresses in sharp modern Italian clothes, described as a 'modernist'. Scooters were chosen as transport because all the mechanics were hidden, therefore ideal for riding without getting their expensive suits was the reason Parkas were chosen as keep clothes clean. The Mod logo of the target usually sewn on the back of the parka was taken from the RAF roundel. Scooters were customised with mirrors and lights and lots of chrome. Finding the vintage headlines of the clash between Mods and Rockers reminded me that memories are sometimes very selective! However, I have since read that the press milked this era for sensationalist journalism. Nothing changes! Next
  7. 7. WeAdmire - Primo Levi The concept: • The barbed wire frame is symbolic of Auschwitz. • The figure 174517 was Levi’s prisoner number • The letters over that number represent the same in chemical symbols; hydrogen; nitrogen; beryllium; boron and chlorine. • The silhouette is of Levi at his computer • The image on the computer is alloxan mentioned in the story Nitrogen in The Periodic Table, which is in the background. • The 'gas' coming out of the monitor represents two things: alloxan turns out to be a poison but also represents the maelstrom in this quote: "I am a normal man with a good memory who fell into a maelstrom and got out of it more by luck than by virtue, and who from that time on has preserved a certain curiosity about maelstroms large and small, metaphorical and actual."
