The TYPOgraphJournal is written by designers for designers. The text is conversational, experimental, self-generated, personal expressions about design theory, practice and process.
Each volume poses a question which sets the direction for ideas to develop and conversations to unravel.
Unlike a traditional design theory publication the journal is a curated selection of short soundbites intended as creative propulsion for the readers own ideas and development. The thinking is expanded upon with in depth interviews, demonstrated with visual research.
The TYPOgraphJournals layout, visual devices and typographic treatment (form) expresses the content, thinking and curation (function). The intent is for the document to be self-reflective and symbiotic in its approach to design practice and theory.
