The first ONYX broadsheet, 1970

During the late 1960s, a group of young designers, artists and architects began a conversation that resulted in broadsheets, drawings, exhibits and other design related work. Their intent was to find others who shared their enthusiasm for diversity and an eclectic appreciation of that diversity. They called their collective effort ONYX. This site reviews of some of the art, drawings, photos, models and design work they created and some of their work since the first broadsheets appeared; it brings ONYX up to date.
