Pourquoi créer une revue papier sur le livre à l’heure où l’Internet remet en question le matérialisme tout naturel de l’Occidental moyen, à l’heure où la valeur pécuniaire de «l’objet livre» refoule les adeptes du savoir gratuit disponible sur la toile ? Que deviennent aujourd’hui ces cahiers reliés, fondement de notre société, détenteurs de notre Histoire ? Face à la dématérialisation des contenus éditoriaux, la pratique du design au sein du livre prend une dimension d’autant plus importante. Objets anodins ou véritables œuvres d’art, les livres, à travers leurs formes et les histoires qu’ils racontent, ont la vocation de créer un lien unique avec ceux qui les lisent, les consultent ou les possèdent.

In Pieces - 30 Endangered Species, 30 Pieces. Lexique des règles typographiques en usage à l'Imprimerie nationale - Collectif Offscreen Magazine — a print magazine about pixel people Jeff Schreiber Optimo Type Foundry Typography Ireland Face Forward is an international peer-reviewed conference focused on typography that seeks to examine design and typographic practice, and to make explicit existing connections between craft, research, theory, history, criticism and pedagogy. This conference aims to provoke informed, rigorous and critical debate on aspects of typographic research and practice that relate to current discourse and contexts. It is the inaugural event in what will become an annual international conference. In the field of visual communication and typographic practice, a great deal of epistemological uncertainty still exists. The conference will provide a forum for research into typographic production, representation, dissemination and use. Suggested themes for papers include (but are not limited to): contemporary thinking about typography; the role and relationship of typography to cultural memory; the materiality of typography; type and language; endangered practice; post-digital typography.

Grid Systems in Graphic Design : A Visual Communication Manual for Graphic Designers, Typographers and Three Dimensional Designers - Josef Muller-Brockmann MASH by MASH on Typography Served Presenting our first, self-titled project ‘MASH' by MASH. Everyday through June & July a member of the quad submitted an uppercase letterform of the alphabet. This culminated in a display-face bonanza that you’ve never laid eyes on before! Or perhaps you have (ahem, Jessica Hische), but never before from NEW ZEALAND.MASH are four female font fanatics from a little town called Hamilton in the heart of New Zealand. Type is more than just the alphabet yo’ momma taught y’all, for us it is the bee’s knees, the ‘crème de la crème’, the tip of the iceberg…the reason for existence. MASH is a typographic collaboration between Mary Faber, Alice Lo, Saranna Drury, & Haylie Gray.

Scandia Font Family | Process Type Foundry Swapping angularity for lush curves, Scandia picks up where Scandia Line leaves off. If its sibling is the skeleton, then Scandia is the flesh. With a nod to the classic geometric sans serifs of the 20th-century, Scandia builds a steady rhythm across its four weights and matching italics to create a versatile family of fonts. While developing Scandia, care was given to avoid simply wrapping curves around Scandia Line’s primitive forms. Instead, it was used as a proportional guide before imagining curves and a different weight structure for what would become Scandia. To complement the four primary styles, a stenciled variant modeled on the Bold weight has been added to the family. Scandia also includes a handful of alternate characters that can be found as an OpenType Stylistic Set. If you hadn’t guessed by now, Scandia Line was designed first and served as the inspiration for Scandia.

1554 : répertoire de la scène typographique française vivante « Là où croît le péril, croît aussi ce qui sauve. » — Friedrich Hölderlin Cela pourrait commencer ainsi : la scène typographique française est en pleine ébullition. Comme partout pourtant, le monde de la typographie en France a été touché de plein fouet par l’avènement de la PAO (Publication Assistée par Ordinateur) au milieu des années 1980. Ce bouleversement sans précédent a fait quasiment disparaître le deuxième et le troisième corps typographiques (respectivement les compositeurs et les correcteurs, le premier étant celui des dessinateurs de caractères). Toutefois, la multiplication des formations typographiques dans le courant des années 1980 et 1990 conjuguée à la démocratisation des outils informatiques a fait émerger une nouvelle génération de dessinateurs de caractères, amplifiant un mouvement balbutiant une décennie plus tôt sous l’impulsion notamment du Scriptorium de Toulouse. © Frank Adebiaye, février 2012 Notes et références Suleyman Yazki :

Self Promotional Piece on Behance I have always had a hard time determining how to brand myself. Do I use a business name? Do I use my name? The dilemma being that googling Steve Jones could return not only a 80s hair rocker, but also a British TV host both of which couldn't be further from me. (Although I do get down on the guitar) This piece was developed to resonate with audiences who truly appreciate and admire something beautifully crafted. I worked with some amazing people getting the production squared away. The outside cover was screen printed at Grand Palace in Nashville, TN by Drew Binkley, a very talented artist and fellow musician. This book was created to showcase my work at my senior show and to land possible job opportunities.
