Swiss graphic design, beginning in the 1950s, exerted a major influence on graphic design internationally. Swiss design, which came to be known as International Typographic Style, was characterized by a clarity achieved through the use of such design elements as sans serif type and a grid system of organization. Sixty examples of this style are on view at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County's Kuhn Gallery in the show "Word and Image: Swiss Poster Design 1955-1997," and it includes work by Armin Hofmann, Wolfgang Weingart, Carl B. Graf, Werner Jeker, Peter Moser and Max Bill, among others.

Ten years ago, Nini Sarmiento and Rob Degenhard were scouring flea markets, antiques stores and yard sales searching for midcentury modern pieces to furnish their Rodgers Forge townhouse. They were having such a good time — and becoming so good at it — that one vendor suggested they try selling furniture themselves. And so Home Anthology was born. Today their Catonsville store has become a destination for those seeking midcentury modern, vintage, and retro furniture and accessories.

Committed. Passionate. Talented. Three words that accurately describe one of our honored men of Harford this year, local painter, Ken Karlic. We chose Ken because he transformed a life-long passion for watercolor painting into a medium that has captured so many beautiful, scenic venues in Harford County. His water color paintings represent the best of rural living and we are happy to tell his story. Originally from Chicago, Karlic has spent the last 25 years in the Baltimore area and in 2003 moved to Harford County with his wife, Eve Morra, a photographer and their now 9-year-old son Julian who attends Harford Day School.
