Interview in Slanted #11 – Monospace, Typewriter
The Summer 2010 issue of German typography magazine Slanted focuses on monospaced and typewriter faces. It features an interview with yours truly, conducted by Julia Kahl at TYPO Berlin 2010 "Passion". With The Revolution won't be set in Garamond as tagline, Slanted #11 – Monospace, Typewriter comes in a revised structure and layout. Projects are confronted with each other, and magazine sections overlap. The changes reflect Slanted's attitude towards contemporary editorial design in analogue and digital times. This "new order" is a homage to the visual and to design.
The redesigned issue #11 presents the work of studio Yves Peters (Gent/BE), Richard Kegler (Buffalo/USA), Georg Seifert (Berlin/DE) as well as a Tokyo report by Ian Lynam (Tokyo/JP) and a musical travelogue by DJ Frank Wiedemann (âme / INNERVISIONS, Berlin/DE) round up the stuff to read.
SLANTED is a German weblog focusing on typography and design. Founded in 2004, it has grown into an important design portal and discussion forum in the German-speaking area. Slanted generates two million clicks per month. Since 2005 the weblog has a paper companion – the typography magazine of the same name is published quarterly and covers besides typography also graphic design, illustration, and photography. With a print run of 10,000 copies, it is available through the Slanted website, Amazon, and in selected stores worldwide. The magazine tackles the material more thoroughly and in greater detail. Texts are printed in the native languages of the authors/designers, which is half German, half English, largely depending on whom is taking part. Sometimes the magazine even runs articles in French, but rarely. Both blog and magazine stimulate and foster debate about the experimental aspects of the topics they cover. It also encourages seeing them in a different light, learning more about them, and reflecting upon them in new ways.
Slanted is published four times a year by MAGMA Brand Design from Karlsruhe, Germany, who are also responsible for Typodarium, the first typographic tear-off calendar showcasing a new type design for every day.
