PRINT PUBLICATION

KEY THEMES:

  • Systems and Automation
  • The Graphic Design Grid


The grid is a system in which we live; that unwittingly governs our everyday lives. The intention of this publication is to simultaneously explore this and challenge the idea of the ‘designer’s grid’ as a necessary creative tool. 

Taking a systematic process, which is detailed at the start of the publication, I used the alphabetical and digit-based grid reference of where I live to generate the content for the publication, as well as plot where the content appears on each spread. The result is disparate pages, decidedly divergent from the structure that a grid provides.

The content and layout begin a discourse around the notion of automated graphic design, as well as questioning how much of a role we want the ‘grid’ to play in our lives.
