What on earth’s an LMX Seminar?
12 October 1990

An early Intro effort, this is an invitation to a seminar for LMX enthusiasts, I think it was a piece of software.

This is old, so my memories are a bit shaky. I designed an identity for a company called Information Systems Group, they made software of some kind, for something or other.

It was all quite sober, but I went a bit nuts on these designs for invitations to seminars on subjects I didn’t quite grasp. I have a vague recollection of being told I didn’t need to understand what LMX or OSI were, I just needed to make the invitations look errr — inviting; but it’s possible I’m seeking an explanation for my exuberant designs.

I’d recently got a Mac, and I was evidently determined to use it; look at all of those boxes and shapes and lines, these are real period pieces.
