A new alphabet for 2019

A new alphabet for 2019

We are increasingly talking about new alphabets. Alphabets which point to new dimensions. The thought of the possibility of an extended articulation of a view or a way of thinking
has occupied us for some time. In 2019 we’d like to continue
our investigations. We declare new ways of thinking as basic approach for the creation of new forms. Reflections on complexity result in a new interpretive scope.

We consider Type as Statement

We consider Type as Statement

Type transports information, it forms knowledge. Type is both system and memory, it both archives and communicates at the same time. Information fosters the discourse, one of the most fundamental requirements of an open society.
The language extension of the Relevant font with Cyrillic and Greek is a contribution to an interlingual exchange and thus functions as critical questioning of information like the images shown in this context, which — placed in a manipulated way themselves — refer to a possible shifting towards corrupt or speculative action.

BLUMENLESE

BLUMENLESE

The publication BLUMENLESE has resulted from the project “Connected in Isolation“ by BAUM/JAKOB and contains images from the development process, pictures from the final art prints as well as some video stills. The fragmentation and isolation of nature is one of the main subjects in the work of Jacqueline Baum and Ursula Jakob and had of course an important impact for our approach to the design of the book. The three different interviews address composition, presentation and production of flowers from a different perspective. By layering images and texts, splittings and recontextualisations become visible. All texts are set in Binnenland‘s new grotesk typeface that is still in the development process.
