Be Bright!

Slanted Bright Call For Entries Typography for many artists is loaded with creative potential. How much power of expression is contained in a letter, a word, or a sentence, when these entities, which are very communicative in character, are put on stage as images and objects? How does typographical information respond to its environment, to graphic complements, deconstruction or visual reversal?

Under the curatorship of Slanted, "bright!” presents a unique collection of extraordinary typo-art. Culturally-rooted and progressive aesthetic dimensions of typographic discourse reflect the complexity of the various disciplines between illustration and art.

The Submission is free of charge. There is no entry fee. So jump on the boat and contact Magma Brand Design.

Tall Tales From A Large Man by Aaron Draplin

For one night only in London (29th of November), a special evening event featuring Aaron Draplin – founder of Portland’s Draplin Design Company and co-creator of Field Notes. Draplin will be bringing his hilarious ‘Tall Tales from a Large Man’ presentation to the UK for the first time. Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, Aaron James Draplin of the Draplin Design Co. delivers a suckerpunch of a talk that aims to provide bonafide proof of work, the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a couple tall tales from his so-called career in the cutthroat world of contemporary graphic design.

More info on Keri Newman’s website and book now via Eventbrite.

Book Shelf Absurdity


Is there a lack of imagination to find titles about bicycles? Book shelves need sometimes a bit of diversity, at least in term of titles! @Foyles, London, March 2011.
