Type Research Diary: Conclusion

This project has been with me and you, dear reader, for a while now, and I am happy to say that this, too has reached a stage of near-completeness.

Together with the magazine from the last post, the culturefile is the first part of a three-part cycle I am working on about the Arab spring. This part is the past, the second part, presented before this one, the present and the third part, due begin in late July, will represent the future.

So, in todays ongoing mission of spreading happiness through spreads, this:








Many thanks to all of those who have involved themselves in this project through interest, coercion or necessity!

A Note: This still lacks a name. Suggestions are welcome!

The same applies to this project as did to the last: To anyone happening on this blog and finding their material within: Up to now, this project is entirely non-commercial. Should my use of your output offend you, please get in touch with me.

And now for my next trick…

It's nice when personal interests and university collide. During the Egyptian Uprising, I began gethering material, screen shots of Al-Jazeera, photographs, contacts and articles with the intention of putting them together in some coherent form at some point in the future. That point is now.

A project born out of evolution and uprisings, this is nearing a stage that makes me happy. As that is so, I will try and inflict some happiness in form of screen shots on you.

Sketchbatsketch…

The sketch is sloppy. Somehow that fits in with the rest… But it's Batman, so I'm going to give myself some leeway.


Munichs

One of the joys of being a graphic designer, in spite of all the vituperation in previous posts, is the ability to be in several places at the same time.


So from Berlin, I have, through modern technology and the telephone, developed the ability to send and receive thoughts directly from the initiators of the freisprechanlage festival in Munich. Somehow, we have also managed to create a flyer for the festival. All as if we were sitting in the same room. With crumpets. And possibly some icky-sweet Arabic tea.

As a long-time fan of complaints choirs (the Finnish one still blows me away) I could not help myself but support this particular workshop.

 This part of Freisprechanlage is on in Munich from the 13th — 21st of July 2011. It is a platform3 project in cooperation with the Cairo (complaints) Choir.

Watch this space, there's more coming your way from Munich and soon from Berlin.
