“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.”
There’s a really insightful interview with German graphic designer Eike König on Adobe’s great 99U blog. Eike shares stories about his journey and offers great advice about collaboration and how to keep your creative process fresh. I highly recommend reading the interview and taking a look at the work he produces with his collective Hort as well as his solo artworks on Instagram.

I love this project from Dutch illustration / design duo We Are Out of Office (Winneke de Groot & Felix van Dam). They exchanged designs for food and goods in New York City.
There’s a really nice interview with Winneke and Felix on Inkygoodness where the attempt to describe what a typical day is like for them. The specialise in producing screen prints and riso prints from their home studio which is situated in an old cherry orchard just outside Utrecht, Holland. Sounds great to me!

I really like these one-colour riso prints by Milan-based design studio Atto. They make excellent use of halftone patterns to create a broad tonal range from a single ink.
