The journal format offers the studio a vehicle to share aspects of our culture, and allows us to record our creative interests and outputs—the stuff that normally goes unseen.
The second issue of ‘Adventures in Typography’ finds us settled into our new studio. Our new space is purpose built, surrounded, as we are, by plants and herbs it is literally a breath of fresh air.
Naturally, the feeling of new beginnings is very much at the forefront of our minds. Serious and playful in equal measure (occasionally at the same time), this project sees us searching for the new and the surprising, fresh air and joy, within typography. We have spent time making by computer and by hand—analogue and digital in concert—to capture the feeling of the unexplored possibilities that lie ahead.
This mix of experimentation and play allows us to make work that is outside our comfort zone. Failure doesn’t seem so scary as we give each other the support and confidence to push ourselves collectively. We found the process exhilarating and challenging, we hope you that you find it interesting and even inspiring.
