Bernard Barry is one of the principal visual designers at Facebook. A pretty sweet job I’d say. Imagine having a guarantee that your work would always reach millions of people. Barry handles the pressure nicely; his work is exceptional. If you just briefly glance at his site, you might not notice the absurd amount of detail that goes into each of his projects. The scale of each is often staggering. Barry also has cataloged his entire collection of books and movies. Absolutely worth checking out if you’re on the search for some new books.
Before Facebook, Barry worked at the Decoder Ring and I am imensly curious is he had a hand in creating my favorite logo of all time.

Wow. It’s a mind-boggling mix of no expense spared items, DIY design ingenuity and hands-on production. The whole “think it, make it” concept was made reality. Bernard Berry is now a name to watch. Methinks I’d like to be crashin’ that there shindig in the future.

He is just incredible. He took this link off of his main site, but try this: http://www.designforfun.com/wtf.php

Yes to the hoodie.
No to the Modest Mouse logo (that was all Christian Helms).

Love his work. Inspiring and spot on in every aspect. Noticed that the link of his name is missing the B. Just a heads up.
