Let us introduce ourselves: Catharina (9th semester KD), Marius (5th semester MAD), Ine and Julia (both 5th semester KD) and our tutor Tânia Raposo (designer, teacher and researcher) currently living and working in Nancy, France.
Instead of listening and learning the one perfect truth about typography, we want to research, compile, analyse and share our new gained knowledge about type design topics. Every student shares the information in form of texts and graphics summarized in chapters.
We wrote a reader from students for everyone who wants to get in touch with typographical issues or expand the knwoledge.
Everyone researched information of the picked topics aka elements of a book. We built a database and built our chapter content on this.
We wanted to gain freedom and visual tension from chapter to chapter, so every designer maintained an own graphical language. Besides that, overall rules are important to us to offer a harmonic but contrasted reader.
We used various typefaces depending on our personal concepts. The one that connects them all: OhNo Fatface by OhNo Type Foundry.
Additional to the Print-At-Home versions, we produced a hand full of readers and may send them to the printing house, if there is interest in the book at HBKsaar!
Just have a look and choose yourself! You will find the single chapters or one full version to print and a full version just for reading on screen.
