Lately

I’ve been up to loads of – in the lack of a better word – stuff. The two main projects of the term – a wayfinding system and a home reference manual – have been handed in, and we’ve just started on professional assignments. Mine has something to do with this.

To pick up a few general highlights: I’ve…


… been to a lecture with the very charismatic Ken Garland; who talked about his work in the 60’s for the CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament), designers vs. non-designers work in social campaigns (refering especially to the Occupy movement), and the importance of voting. Amongst other things.



… been in London with a couple of classmates. We stayed at a super fancy hotel.


Heavily branded slippers / very classy signage. At Andaz Hotel.


We visited Greenwich to do some research / get some inspiration for yet another secretive project (ok, designing a t-shirt).


We found some rather interesting signage/pictograms. Cognitively challenging and… overdramatized?



We walked around in Brick Lane.


I’ve drawn a… motivating illustration.


I’ve realized that the two albums I’ve bought here have some interesting similarities…

And otherwise, for the last two days I’ve been enjoying the lovely weather, and (attempted) reading these two books.

Typographic delights 07/11

Topic: Forms. Legal documents, ‘the oil in the government’. A means for gathering information – orderly. A tool of authority; to exercise power, and raise money (taxes). Interactive, though slow. France, from 1780 and after.
