To make graphic communication design public is to put it where it belongs. A poster quietly folded into a drawer is nothing but a piece of tired paper having a rest. The hither and thither of public discourse is the oxygen that gives it life. Life, singular. The first edition of a thought brought into existence and presented outwards to others to make sense of. Lives, plural. Reissued, translated, situated in new contexts, disagreed with…. …with disagreements forging new contexts, new ways to respond, new ways to resist. To make public is to risk the reassurance of familiarity, to challenge ...

We (the community of practitioners comprising MA Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins) talk a lot about open-ended enquiry. What we mean is that starting a project with a fixed end goal in mind leads to uninteresting and uncritical work. Better to follow an idea through the unexpected twists and turns of experimentation, even if it means that the question you end up answering isn’t the one you were asking at the start. And so, open-ended enquiry demands an improvisational approach to research. We frequently reference the idea of adhocism, coined by Charles Jencks and Nathan Silver: “Basically it ...

When everything is destined to be designed, design disappears into the everyday. We simply don’t see it anymore because it’s everywhere. This is the vanishing act of design.

Everything has been designed to perfection and is under a permanent upgrade regime. Within such a paradigm, design is enmeshed with the capitalist logic of reproduction. But this does not come without conflicts, struggles and tensions. Chief among these is the situation of design in a planetary procession toward decay. Our dispense culture prompts a yearning ...

When I type, sometimes, writing to somebody I’m not too interested in (or don’t have much to communicate to although I owe this person an email), I get some phrase that stays in my head a few seconds until it hazes to something as hard to recall as a dream. It may be the string “bbbbbbbbbbbb” that I press into my keyboard and stare through before I delete it from my screen and my brain. I can’t say whether the sound or the image of the string comes first; they seem to occur simultaneously and disappear in much the same ...

She also somehow got me into my personal life so this one goes deep. Another good one!
