Come to Type Tuesday, 9 March 2021

Remix (digital collage) by Studio Blup founder Dines.

Dear friends

Next week is our first Type Tuesday of 2021, ‘What now? What next?’. We look forward to welcoming you, via Zoom, to a virtual St. Bride with the star-studded line-up of Dines (Studio Blup), Malika Favre, Dafi Kühne and magCulture’s Jeremy Leslie.

Final artwork for Malika Favre’s contribution to GraphicDesign&’s book Golden Meaning (2014), which featured 55 designers and image-makers who explored the idea of the ‘golden mean’ first defined by Euclid, the ratio 1:1.618. 

You can read more about our guests on the Eye website: Derek Yates surveyed the way Dines challenges design trends in ‘Remixing the here and now’, I wrote about the way Malika combines geometry and graphic art in ‘Gridlocked’ and Jan Middendorp’s ‘By his own hand’ looks at Dafi’s contemporary use of letterpress techniques (all in the sold-out Eye 100). Rick Poynor’s ‘Browsing, or reading?’ (Eye 92, still available) is about magCulture.

Kühne’s work was also shown in a recent exhibition of letterpress posters, ‘Reverting to Type 2020: Protest Posters’. Eye magazine was invited for a (necessarily) private view, and ‘The printed howl’, my short review of the exhibition and project, is on the Eye blog.

Our Type Tuesday guests will talk about their recent work and discuss the challenges facing young people joining the creative industries at this strange time.
What now? What next?’ also gives us a chance to hear about Dines’s new venture #Blup50 and to look at some recently launched indie mags courtesy of Jeremy Leslie, who will be zooming direct from the magCulture shop in Clerkenwell. The evening will conclude with a panel discussion and questions from you, the online audience.

Eye 101 goes to press soon. If you don’t already subscribe, you can join here and start with the next issue.
Sign up for Type Tuesday on 9 March here – all proceeds go to St. Bride.

Warmest regards

John L. Walters, editor
