A web-application, built on the Processing language (see: processing.org ) by a student from the “Arts Décoratifs” in Strazbourg, Yannick Mathey, intended to design letterforms. Explaining it would take far too long. Just take a look at the video to see how fiddling with the different parameters changes the attributes of the letters. Yannick explains (in the comments on the Vimeo-pages) that of course he didn’t intend to replace the type designer, yet his app is designed to facilitate experimentation. For every parameter markers are set up to indicate trespassing the rules of what is commonly considered good design, yet the markers are also there to be crossed, opening up the possibilities to generate extraordinary forms. Rimino - The E-paper Mobile. The Return of Isidro Ferrer. This weekend I noticed that the video on one of my posts on Isidro Ferrer (from the beginning of last year, the very beginnings of this blog!)
Was missing. ( See here and here and here for the other posts) What a shame! I so loved the little video which showed lots of work and a glimpse of the studio of this Spanish illustrator/graphic designer. After I dried my tears I decided to try and contact the people who put the video on Vimeo in the first place. You never know, maybe they would put the video back up soon? Nah. But…. they did point me in the direction of a rather new portfolio site Ferrer put up, one which I had never seen before and which had tons and tons of his beautiful work on display!
So: time for a new post on Isidro Ferrer who is, you guessed that by now, one of my favorite image makers around. For plenty more examples of his work, visit Isidro Ferrer's portfolio site. The Visionaries. Nice site.
