CO-LAB

CO-LAB: Collaborative Design Survey is a book by Elizabeth Herrmann and Ryan Shelley, founders of the design studio ras+e. The book presents the results of the writer's research about interdisciplinary collaborative design. They include several interviews, essays and illustrations to support their thesis about collaborative design: “research into others" processes strongly echoed their own ideas, so the interviews became the argument, which they re-broadcast in their own red-worded book.” We are happy to have had the possibility to contribute to this study. All interviews are on-line now and freely available.

2nd Typeface Publishing Incentive Program Result

We are delighted to announce the result of the second TypeTogether Publishing Incentive Programme. The project that most impressed our selection team was Noort, an ‘in-progress’ typeface by Juan Bruce — currently an MATD student at the University of Reading. The original inspiration for Noort came from cartographic maps of the 17th century. Juan has been developing his typeface for editorial use, with a range of optical sizes to provide better performance in small text sizes. A generous x-height, long serifs, peculiar terminals and a rough-style italic are all part of Noort's charm. Juan’s intention is to support several languages, including Latin, Cyrillic, Greek and Bengali.
