Collision 1: Badness and Conflict

Als we typografische en cartografische objecten beschouwen als “ruimtelijke ordeningen van teksten en andere grafische elementen”, dan is het werk van een ontwerper het organiseren van botsingen. In een conventionele ontwerppraktijk zijn heel wat systemen aan het werk om zulke ‘ongelukken’ te voorkomen. Spanningen wordt weggenomen door elementen te wissen, te vereenvoudigen en te filteren. Wat zou een manier zijn om botsingen te articuleren, in plaats van ze te vermijden?
De eerste workshop (…)

Collision 1: Badness and Conflict

If we consider typographic and cartographic objects as “spatial arrangement of texts and other graphical elements”, than their design is essentially the work of organising collisions. In a conventional design practice, many systems are at work to prevent accidents from happening. Tension is deflated through erasure, simplification and filtering. What would be ways to articulate collisions, instead of avoiding them?
The first workshop in this series is inspired by particular practices of (…)

Libre Graphics Magazine workshop

During their residency in Variable, Ana Carvalho, Ginger Coons & Ricardo Lafuente, the editors of Libre Graphics Magazine, invite you to take part in the
making of the upcoming issue.
From 2pm to 6pm on Saturday, September 8, you can join them at Variable for a workshop with a focus on the issue’s theme: localisation/internationalization.
Being all three foreigners, they’ll reflect on the concepts of location, be it physical or digital, and its effects on our work processes, (…)

Collective co-positioning

Digital lay-outing tools are path dependent in their way of mimicking the past processes of 600 years of moveable type (and maybe even beyond). Often practice proceeds without extensive critical reflection by practitioners themselves. Practice is spoken of in a ‘living language’ that addresses day-to-day actions and gestures. To re-dream lay-out practice from scratch, we start with developing a vocabulary of lay-out in order to better understand relations between workflow, material and (…)
