A piece of tape art was filmed live in Berlin for a ZDF Kultur commercial about music and the arts. Artists were invited to illustrate a word in different locations around Berlin. Reiselust – ‘Wanderlust’ was installed on a disused piece of land between a housing estate and railway line.

Maarten Baas – The New Forest

With new techniques (such as Google Earth or drones) we increasingly familiarize ourselves with the view of earth from above. From this perspective, one could see the planet as a sculpture, or a canopy as a canvas. For The NEW Forest, trees will be planted in a specific arrangement, selected by the colours of their leaves and their corresponding foliage. As the forest ages, a design will slowly arise. By 2216, the forest will be fully-grown and an aerial perspective will reveal a souvenir from the 21st century: a flashy logo saying “NEW!” Each season shows different colour combinations, generating a new NEW! logo for years to come.

Agency of None’s Dundee Design Festival

“We designed and produced Dundee Design Festival 2019 on the theme of liveable/loveble cities. Working with fellow designer Tommy Perman we created a variable font for the city and working with a team used this as the basis to transform an underused shopping centre in the city centre into a space that would bring the ideas and means of design to everyone.”

Paulin Geo Typeface by Imogen Ayers

“As one of the team at Paulin specialises in type design, we decided to create our own bespoke numerals for use on our new watches, which we then developed into a complete typeface.”

Eloisa Iturbe Creativity is about the things that appear when you relax a little bit

Eloisa Iturbe runs a branding and design studio in Buenos Aires, but she’s not actually that into design or photography. Instead, she’s more inspired by things that aren’t directly related to what she does for work. “I’m more interested in furniture, clothes, food, plants,” she says. “I try to surround myself with well made, functional, good quality objects, instead of something purely aesthetic.”
