Ragtag

Ragtag is an adventurous display typeface that’s fun, graphic, and loud. Each letter is unique and designed so it composes beautifully with all others—but can also stand on its own as an accent piece or as part of a design.

The typeface was inspired by the scattered crew of makers and designers at branding and creative studio In-House International, which is a fully remote creative home based in Austin, Texas… learn more

dai—Designing with Artificial Intelligence Conference / Review

„What would you think if a robot smiled at you? Would you think it was genuine, or incredibly creepy?“ This question was among other things discussed at the dai—Designing with Artificial Intelligence Conference, and shows that Artificial Intelligence is no longer only concerning tech freaks. It is common and might be easy to assume AI has nothing to do with oneself, while in contrast it impacts the everyday life. In reality, AI is encountered by most people from morning until night.

Dédale

Dédale, designed by Thomas Bouville in 2020, is a hybrid type family inspired by inscriptions cut into the stone of the underground passages of the Paris Catacombs. Identified while exploring underground, the diversity of the inscriptions and their varying states of erasure inspired the designer’s unique approach. Rather than seeking to unearth the original drawings of the stone engravers (in an attempt to „rewind“ the flow of time), Thomas Bouville sought to reveal links between the inscriptions and… learn more

Vitra Summit 2020

Vitra announces the program for its first digital summit, scheduled on October 22nd and 23rd, 2020. This year has radically changed our perception of space: We started avoiding places we share with strangers or any environment that could subject us to chance encounters. We were ordered to remain in our homes by governments worldwide. Companies were forced into the mass experiment of remote working. Our homes suddenly became a place in which to work, spend time with the family, learn, celebrate, grieve, and… learn more

Today is Tomorrow’s Yesterday

„These pages were never intended to be public so it’s kind of a personal exercise here. I like the idea of people seeing what’s in my brain somehow. I always have had the curiosity of seeing other artist’s notebooks and dig in their mentality in order to understand better their work. Now it’s time to share mine.“ Slanted’s new Today is Tomorrow’s Yesterday by Rubén Sánchez grew from his wish „to do something with all (his) sketchbooks.“ His dream finally got reality, because his project was selected by… learn more
