Right now, the future Tartinery site is blocked by construction barricades. When I walked through last week, I was struck by the charm of the illustrations as well as by how nicely the commuters (most of them oblivious, either rushing by or hanging out on their phones) seemed to complete the compositions.</p> <p><img class="alignleft size-full wp-image-554087" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Red.jpg" alt="" width="825" height="539" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Red.jpg 825w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Red-450x294.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Red-600x392.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 825px) 100vw, 825px" /></p> <p>Luckily, the artist, <a href="https://www.justynastasik.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Justyna Stasik</a>, based in Montreal, signed her work prominently, and I connected with her the other day.</p> <p><img class="alignnone wp-image-554093" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Justyna-Insta-1.jpeg" alt="" width="620" height="904" /></p> <h3><strong>ES: This is so fun. How did you get the assignment?</strong></h3> <p>Daniel Korkhov, creative director at the New York office of BRAT, a Paris-based branding and design agency, contacted me last April.</p> <h3><strong>JS: What was the client brief?</strong></h3> <p>Tartinery wanted to show New Yorkers during their morning, daytime, and evening eating rituals. That includes people commuting with their morning coffee, finding a minute to relax during the lunch break, and winding down at dinner with friends.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-554088" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery.jpg" alt="" width="825" height="531" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery.jpg 825w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-450x290.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-600x386.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 825px) 100vw, 825px" /> <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-554086" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Phone-Red-2.jpg" alt="" width="825" height="556" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Phone-Red-2.jpg 825w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Phone-Red-2-450x303.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Phone-Red-2-600x404.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 825px) 100vw, 825px" /> <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-554084" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Blue-CoupleWalking.jpg" alt="" width="825" height="565" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Blue-CoupleWalking.jpg 825w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Blue-CoupleWalking-450x308.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Blue-CoupleWalking-600x411.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 825px) 100vw, 825px" /> <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-554085" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Green-.jpg" alt="" width="825" height="583" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Green-.jpg 825w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Green--450x318.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartinery-Green--600x424.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 825px) 100vw, 825px" /></p> <h3><strong>Did you show sketches first, or did they give you complete freedom?</strong></h3> <p>Tartinery trusted me with complete freedom. We had couple of calls with the owner, Nicolas Dutko, before I started. We talked through what he expected, what kind of atmosphere we want to show in the illustrations. We also established the references together.</p> <h3><strong>Were there any Grand Central Terminal rules you had to follow? They are usually fussy about size of signage and colors.</strong></h3> <p>The only thing I had to take under consideration, not really coming from GCT, was the placement of the lights above the panels, the size of the panels. and the bars attached to some of them.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-554090" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/YellowWall.jpeg" alt="" width="825" height="549" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/YellowWall.jpeg 825w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/YellowWall-450x299.jpeg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/YellowWall-600x399.jpeg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 825px) 100vw, 825px" /></p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-554083" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartineery-Yellow-BigCrowd.jpg" alt="" width="825" height="619" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartineery-Yellow-BigCrowd.jpg 825w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartineery-Yellow-BigCrowd-450x338.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Tartineery-Yellow-BigCrowd-600x450.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 825px) 100vw, 825px" /></p> <h3><strong>I love the way the people standing and moving in front of the barricades seem to complete the composition. Was that your intention</strong>?</h3> <p>The intention was to show people on the go, to depict typical—maybe even a bit stereotypical—busy New Yorkers going about their days. I&#8217;m really glad to see the illustrations resonate with the GCT crowd. It means I did my job well and was able to do the NY lifestyle justice.</p> <h3><strong>What&#8217;s coming up?</strong></h3> <p>A number of applications are in the works. Some that are still confidential.</p> <p><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-554089" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TartineryApps.jpg" alt="" width="825" height="790" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TartineryApps.jpg 825w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TartineryApps-450x431.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TartineryApps-600x575.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 825px) 100vw, 825px" /></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/advertising-2/tartinery-illustration-justyna-stasik/">“I’ll Have Illustration with That, Please.”</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> Advertising Branding & Identity Design Designer Interviews Ellen Shapiro Environment Fahrenheit212 Featured Illustration Design BRAT agency construction barricades Grand Central Terminal Justyna Stasik Ellen Shapiro Soft Signage Opportunities http://www.printmonthly.co.uk/NewsStory.aspx?i=7145 Print News urn:uuid:86fcaf50-2194-f77d-e32d-8b31c087b5a1 Thu, 15 Nov 2018 14:04:15 +0000 Tempted by the idea of soft signage?

He managed the Village Vanguard, co-founded the Rheingold Central Park Music Festival, ran a jazz bar on West 9th Street and then opened Hilly&#8217;s a neighborhood bar on West 13th Street and Hilly&#8217;s On The Bowery (both bars failed).</p> <p>Hilly&#8217;s on 13th street was my &#8220;Cheers&#8221; when I was in my early 20s. There was no live music (that I recall), a limited food menu, some great bartenders, waitresses and lots of my friends who worked on Underground newspapers.

Very simply, the LITHOMAN technology with its advanced color and quality control, automation, minimal waste, two-color zero makeready feature, and excellent setup times makes 70% of the existing web presses in North America obsolete. The 48-page LITHOMAN will enhance the productivity and capacity of our existing sheetfed, digital, and web press platform with increased quality, speed, and significantly lower waste.”</p> <p>The LITHOMAN press, one of several new machines planned for the updated facility in the future, includes a full portfolio of automated inline controls, including InlineRegistration Control, InlineCutoff Control Dynamic, and InlineDensity Control (IDCm). The press also includes the DynaChange imprint function, which uses only the blanket cylinders of engaged printing units, allowing for increased production speed, and a fully automated printing plate changing device (APL). Remote diagnostics systems will allow technicians from manroland Goss to quickly and accurately diagnose any variables to the printing process and ensure uptime for maximum productivity results.</p> <p>Bradford &amp; Bigelow Executive Vice President Rick Dunn appreciates the value of automated controls for the company’s role as a best-in-class print facility. “As an ISO9001:2015 and G7 certified supplier, we measure twice and cut once, and these tools are the next step in maintaining our technological excellence. More and more of our clients are asking B&amp;B to expand our 4-color capacity and also offer a print warehouse &amp; distribution model which economically and environmentally makes sense.” Along with the increased press capacity, Bradford &amp; Bigelow will add 50,000 sq. ft. of warehousing space.</p> <p>“Bradford and Bigelow has positioned the company for growth by adding LITHOMAN presses to their pressroom operations,” stated Jason Elliott, Vice President of Sales for manroland Goss web systems, “The automation, efficiency, and speed of the LITHOMAN is currently unmatched in the market, and has become the preferred press equipment for companies looking to create new opportunities.”</p> </div> </div> </div></div></div><div class="wpb_column vc_column_container vc_col-sm-4"><div class="vc_column-inner "><div class="wpb_wrapper"> <div class="wpb_single_image wpb_content_element vc_align_left"> <figure class="wpb_wrapper vc_figure"> <a href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/11/Bradford_Bigelow.png" target="_blank" class="vc_single_image-wrapper vc_box_border_grey"><img width="550" height="546" src="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/11/Bradford_Bigelow.png" class="vc_single_image-img attachment-large" alt="" srcset="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/11/Bradford_Bigelow.png 939w, https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/11/Bradford_Bigelow-150x150.png 150w, https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/11/Bradford_Bigelow-211x210.png 211w, https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/11/Bradford_Bigelow-423x420.png 423w, https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/11/Bradford_Bigelow-201x200.png 201w, https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/11/Bradford_Bigelow-403x400.png 403w" sizes="(max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px" /></a><figcaption class="vc_figure-caption">(L to R) Bradford &amp; Bigelow EVP Rick Dunn, Marketing Manager Emily Kotecki, &amp; President John Galligan, manroland Goss web systems CEO Alex Wasserman, Marketing Manager Denise Lease, and VP of Sales Jason Elliott celebrate the sale of the LITHOMAN at Print 18 in Chicago, Illinois</figcaption> </figure> </div> </div></div></div></div><div class="vc_row wpb_row vc_row-fluid"><div class="colorRow wpb_column vc_column_container vc_col-sm-12"><div class="vc_column-inner "><div class="wpb_wrapper"><div class="col-md-4 colorCol colorColGreen default"></p> <h4>Download:</h4> <p><a href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/11/PR-013_BradfordBigelow_E_final.pdf">Press Release | PDF</a></div></div></div></div></div> <p>Der Beitrag <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/newsroom/5076/bradford-bigelow-selects-lithoman-for-new-building-addition-to-print-operation">Bradford &amp; Bigelow Selects LITHOMAN for New Building Addition to Print Operation</a> erschien zuerst auf <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en">manroland web systems GmbH</a>.</p> Newsroom Press Release manroland web systems Colour Management http://www.printmonthly.co.uk/NewsStory.aspx?i=7139 Print News urn:uuid:8669041c-c20a-2fd7-7c25-9459ab8033a1 Wed, 14 Nov 2018 13:20:46 +0000 With accuracy more important than ever for print service providers as they seek to meet the demands of customers, Rob Fletcher looks at some of the latest colour management solutions to help companies in their quest Clamping down on fake ink in Uganda http://www.printmonthly.co.uk/NewsStory.aspx?i=7138 Print News urn:uuid:e8bba823-7fa6-92eb-14bd-94718a067ab4 Wed, 14 Nov 2018 13:20:46 +0000 HP has partnered with Ugandan authorities to close in on the trade of counterfeit HP branded ink cartridges in the country.

There are posters and flyers from the Africobra movement, as well as the design works of Emmett McBain, a designer who did pro bono graphic design work for organizations and social services that helped African Americans in Chicago in the 1970s.</p> <p class="m_-6973396414298731073gmail-MsoNoSpacing">A few consumer products in the exhibit include magazine covers, chairs and drawings that showcase the design process from sketch to finished product. One highlight is the works of industrial designer Charles ‘Chuck’ Harrison, the first African American executive to work at Sears in 1961, through 1993. Harrison&#8217;s road wasn&#8217;t an easy one. During his job interview with the department store, he was told he couldn&#8217;t be hired because he was black, so was given freelance work instead. But he eventually did get on staff and he designed over 750 household products, from toasters to stoves.</p> <div id="attachment_554077" style="width: 483px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-large wp-image-554077" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Charles-Harrison-born-1931.-Design-for-a-portable-phonograph-1972.-Colored-pencil-on-tracing-paper.-Charles-Harrison-papers-Special-Collections-and-University-Archives-University-Library-University-of-Illinoi-473x600.jpg" alt="African American designers -- Charles Harrison (born 1931).

The more militant politics of Black Power would infuse the visual culture of Black Chicago, in places such as the pages of the venerable&nbsp;<i>Chicago Defender</i>&nbsp;and outdoor posters for churches, theaters and community organizations.”</p> <div id="attachment_554074" style="width: 475px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-large wp-image-554074" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/1963-Ebony-Herb-Nipson-and-Norman-L.-Hunter.-Cover-Design-Ebony-Magazine-September-1963.-DuSable-Museum-of-African-American-History-Eugene-Winslow-Papers.-James-Prinz-Photography-Chicago.-465x600.jpg" alt="Herb Nipson and Norman L.

Later revised and released in 2016 as the Wrong Color Subway Map, our designs have attracted a great deal of attention and praise from both a variety of media and fans of NYC from around the world.&#8221;</p> <p>The duo speaks so well about their &#8220;graphic parodox&#8221; I am giving over today&#8217;s Daily Heller to their explanation which they sent to me: &#8220;Our Subway Map project began in revolt to the official MTA New York City Subway map. We felt that NYC deserved better than this. The lack of visual hierarchy and the randomness of the map’s contours were ungainly to our eyes. Massimo Vignelli’s iconic map from the 70s was very appealing, but we wondered how we might design a NYC map of our own.&#8221;</p> <p>&#8220;As our map started to come together, we saw that the visual hierarchy and aesthetic harmony we were striving for was already apparent. The use of 45 and 90 degree angles made the shapes of the landmasses more visually appealing and the typographic shifts in scale helped aid visual orientation,<br /> making the map easier to navigate.&#8221;</p> <p>?The level of detailing on the project was immense. In keeping with our goal of combining accuracy with aesthetic harmony, we made sure we included as many major arteries and streets as possible to make the map rich in content. We added streets, parks, secondary transportation systems, and a great deal of info that was missing from Vignelli’s Map.&#8221;</p> <p>&#8220;We were very interested in developing a suite of typefaces that would be unique to our map. Since the typeface used in the MTA system, Helvetica, has Swiss origins, we hoped our typeface could draw inspiration from the many type designers that lived and worked in NYC. In the end our type was inspired by the work of two New Yorkers, Tom Geismar and Herb Lubalin.&#8221;</p> <p>&#8220;We asked ourselves why we should be reliant on that accepted approach to subway map design, specifically the reliance on color coding. We wondered if we could instead create a usable map<br /> printed in only a single color. The result would be a sort of graphic paradox, The One-Color Subway Map. With that new challenge in mind we had to rethink how a typical subway map functions.</p> <p>The One-Color Subway Map functions by reversing the usual approach—where subway lines have a strong visual presence. Instead we made the lines very faint in color, and the viewer navigates by connecting-the-dots of the stations together. For the color we chose neon red. The vibrancy and unpredicability of the red added to the subversiveness of the project.&#8221;</p> <p>&#8220;<a href="http://triborodesign.com/shop/">The Wrong Color Subway Map</a> became the next evolutionary leap. One color was expanded<br /> into many—and they are all “wrong.” Subway lines traded their familiar shades for vibrant<br /> alternatives. For all the rivers, parks and landmasses, we selected the most inappropriate colors we could think of. Meanwhile every inch of the poster was redesigned to make it even more refined, precise and (to our eyes) beautiful.&#8221;</p> <p>&#8220;One difficult aspect of the project was set t ling on a choice for the color palette. We tried literally hundreds of color combinations before we came to a conceptual solution comprised of 2 palettes, related to the two modes of representing light and color—the additive and subtractive modes, or<br /> familarly known to designers and photographers as RGB and CMYK.&#8221;</p> <p>&#8220;Nearly every inch of the map was revised to reflect changes to the NYC subway system—like the newly opened 2nd avenue Subway line—and to improve upon the first edition from 6 years earlier. Above is a detail view of Manhattan from the RGB Edition.&#8221;</p> <p>&#8220;The posters are huge, measuring 45 by 58 inches, equivalent to the size of the large subway maps located in NYC underground stations. We printed the maps at a master printer in Germany using the highest quality paper and Heidelberg presses. Neon inks received multiple hits for an even more vibrant effect.&#8221;</p> <p>&#8220;The only thing we didn’t discuss is whether we heard anything from the MTA. The answer to that question is no. It’s not something we anticipated or were interested in. We hoped to produce a product that New Yorkers, fans of the city and Subway would appreciate and could hang on their wall. We think through this project we have presented some interesting ideas that could inform a redesign of the MTA map, but ultimately we would never imagined that the MTA would seek a redesign.&#8221;</p> <p>The maps are currently being sold both at <a href="http://triborodesign.com/shop/">Triboro’s online</a> shop and at PS1 MoMA.</p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_01.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553986" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_01.jpg" alt="" width="1164" height="1500" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_01.jpg 1164w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_01-349x450.jpg 349w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_01-466x600.jpg 466w" sizes="(max-width: 1164px) 100vw, 1164px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_04.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553987" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_04.jpg" alt="" width="1500" height="942" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_04.jpg 1500w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_04-450x283.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_04-600x377.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1500px) 100vw, 1500px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_InSitu.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553988" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_InSitu.jpg" alt="" width="1164" height="1500" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_InSitu.jpg 1164w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_InSitu-349x450.jpg 349w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_CMY_InSitu-466x600.jpg 466w" sizes="(max-width: 1164px) 100vw, 1164px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_01.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553989" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_01.jpg" alt="" width="1164" height="1500" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_01.jpg 1164w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_01-349x450.jpg 349w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_01-466x600.jpg 466w" sizes="(max-width: 1164px) 100vw, 1164px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_02.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553990" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_02.jpg" alt="" width="1500" height="942" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_02.jpg 1500w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_02-450x283.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_02-600x377.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1500px) 100vw, 1500px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_03.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553991" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_03.jpg" alt="" width="1500" height="942" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_03.jpg 1500w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_03-450x283.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_03-600x377.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1500px) 100vw, 1500px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_InSitu.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553992" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_InSitu.jpg" alt="" width="1164" height="1500" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_InSitu.jpg 1164w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_InSitu-349x450.jpg 349w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/WrongSubway_RGB_InSitu-466x600.jpg 466w" sizes="(max-width: 1164px) 100vw, 1164px" /></a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/daily-heller/triboro-subway-map/">Color Lines</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> Color & Design Daily Heller Design Inspiration Steven Heller subway map Triborough Design Steven Heller Fujifilm announces firmware updates for FUJIFILM GFX 50S, FUJIFILM X-T3, and FUJIFILM X-H1. http://www.fujifilm.com/news/n181113_02.html Print Companies -

The book is a must read and this interview is a guide to Heller&#8217;s <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Intergalactic-Design-Guide-Harnessing-Potential/dp/1610918819"><em>The Intergalactic Design Guide: Harnessing The Creative Potential of Social Design</em></a>.</p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/9781610918817_Heller_The-Intergalactic-Design-Guide-copy.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553995" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/9781610918817_Heller_The-Intergalactic-Design-Guide-copy.jpg" alt="" width="1800" height="2400" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/9781610918817_Heller_The-Intergalactic-Design-Guide-copy.jpg 1800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/9781610918817_Heller_The-Intergalactic-Design-Guide-copy-338x450.jpg 338w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/9781610918817_Heller_The-Intergalactic-Design-Guide-copy-450x600.jpg 450w" sizes="(max-width: 1800px) 100vw, 1800px" /></a></p> <h3><strong>Design to make the world, a better place, was a Modernist ideal, but with few exceptions, I don’t think the designers who identified as “moderns” were thinking of what you are describing. So, what do you mean by “Social Design”? </strong></h3> <p>The defining difference between social design and the Modernist ideal is that the latter was a vision for a world made better by conformity to a standard established by an elite group of designers. Social design is a collaborative process in which the people affected y are included in defining a vision and implementation. It is not one person’s &#8211; or one profession’s aesthetic or effort.</p> <p>As for a definition, social design is the design of the invisible dynamics and relationships that affect society and future. It’s the creation of new social conditions intended to increase human agency, creativity, equity, resilience, and our connection to nature.</p> <p>It is essentially the same process used to develop innovative products and services, but applied at a larger scale, However, instead of a small team of expert designers being responsible for the creative output or product, social design is done by cross-disciplinary teams, including both people inside the company, and in external stakeholder communities. The goal, in addition to breakthrough products and services, is breakthrough interactions between people that lead to ongoing innovation. Because the process is participatory, everyone learns to do it. Because learning to do it instills a greater sense of agency and possibilities, everyone who participates is transformed.</p> <p>This doesn’t at all mean that traditional artifacts of design are omitted from social design, it’s that they are conceived and implemented with the larger context in mind, and with a goal to create social and environmental as well as financial value.</p> <p>The other point that’s critical is that social design is not just for nonprofits and governments. It’s relevant to every business looking to create a more engaged, creative culture. It’s what IBM is doing in their almost decade-long shift from an engineering culture to a design-led one.</p> <h3><strong>I recall in the years when the Peace Corps was actively recruiting, there was a big push on improving the living conditions of others. Have you thought about what “social design” would have added to that process? Instead of NGOs taking the lead, This was government doing its job.</strong></h3> <p>Both these models — of NGOs leading and government doing its job, are top down approaches. Someone at HQ, wherever that was, was making decisions about what people in other parts of the world should have, then defining and codifying a process for delivering it, usually in a way that prioritized efficiency for the NGO or government instead of the recipient. The notion of being human-centered, a principle of social design, means you consider the users needs, and their agency, first. Two examples of this are the current federal and New York City government. Social designers are working to make government services accessible and relevant to veterans and vulnerable populations; putting themselves in the shoes of a veteran trying to navigate the hairball of regulations and agencies and forms, or of a single mother in New York trying to get help with no way to know which agencies offer relevant services. They’re doing this by designing <em>with</em> the people who use the services. That’s a big shift, and it’s an example of some of the work our alums at Design for Social Innovation at SVA are doing inside the Fed and the Office of Economic Opportunity in New York City.</p> <div id="attachment_553996" style="width: 2010px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/13-3-Process5.jpg"><img class="wp-image-553996 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/13-3-Process5.jpg" alt="" width="2000" height="1320" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/13-3-Process5.jpg 2000w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/13-3-Process5-450x297.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/13-3-Process5-600x396.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 2000px) 100vw, 2000px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">Construction of the Butaro District Hospital engaged local workers, and utilized traditional methods and materials.

What does a designer do to make this a valuable outcome? </strong></h3> <p>I think to a certain extent, this is the sweet spot for designers — our comfort with ambiguity, with not having the answer, and living with that condition of not knowing. And designers are naturally curious. What’s critical in social design, though, is that we don’t impose our own ideas on people and systems. Preconceived ideas, however brilliant they sound, are to be avoided. Research is undertaken not to prove a theory, but to understand context and reframe questions. Answers are not determined in advance. The ultimate, moon shot vision may be fixed and inviolate, but not the step by step path to getting there. Observation of patterns, of unexpected reactions, whether in team members or customers, become the source of inspiration and invention—the real-time feedback that makes the idea, when it is developed, far more likely to succeed.</p> <div id="attachment_553997" style="width: 2010px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/1_13.jpg"><img class="wp-image-553997 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/1_13.jpg" alt="" width="2000" height="1334" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/1_13.jpg 2000w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/1_13-450x300.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/1_13-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 2000px) 100vw, 2000px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">Built for Zero helps communities learn to work collaboratively and solve problems. Rather than dictating a single solution for ending homelessness, each community is guided through a process that they can adapt and apply themselves.</p></div> <h3><strong>Your book is literally a “guide,” so where are designers going? And who are the designers who define the social design discipline?</strong></h3> <p>I just gave a talk called “What does it mean to be a Designer when everybody’s designing?” This is a pivotal moment because we have to redefine what it means to be a professional. Design thinking is everywhere, and at a very superficial level, a portion of what professionals offer is being co-opted by everybody with access to post it notes and colored markers. This is a trend that will continue, because there is growing appetite for design as a way to build creative capacity within businesses and other institutions. So it’s up to designers to decide whether to try to protect the old turf or jump in and lead the change.</p> <p>Lynda Gratton wrote an article for the <em>MIT Sloan Management Review,</em> about how soft skills are the ones that can’t be automated, and therefore are the skills of the future jobs. The thing that isn’t obvious to everyone quite yet is that the soft skills are design skills. It’s up to us to make that case.</p> <h3>You provide some inspiring case studies yet how does the average, service-oriented designer find the project that needs the designer’s work?</h3> <p>The difference is that you don’t start with a project. You start with the issue you feel compelled to do something about — with the vision you want to create. Then you look for the people who are most affected by the issue and the people who are working to do something about it. Next you put yourself in the middle of that and get to work. Social design has a very specific set of skills, and requires a great deal of rigor and discipline. It’s not a weekend workshop or a tool kit. This is not the kind of design work where you hope someone will give you an exciting assignment, it’s what you decide to stand up and do.</p> <div id="attachment_553998" style="width: 5194px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-2-Fisherman-with-net.jpg"><img class="wp-image-553998 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-2-Fisherman-with-net.jpg" alt="" width="5184" height="3456" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-2-Fisherman-with-net.jpg 5184w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-2-Fisherman-with-net-450x300.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-2-Fisherman-with-net-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 5184px) 100vw, 5184px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">Interface NetWorks has built both social and environmental value into their global supply chain.

How long before you do this before creating a working result?</strong></h3> <p>Making to learn is continual prototyping, beginning with very rough, lo res representations, that can sometimes be as simple as a conversation with the people you want to engage. Because design is done in real time with people on the ground, prototyping is research, and becomes a real time feedback loop in the development of the program.</p> <p>Traditional processes are sequential. They move from one stage to the next, with different teams of experts, and often different leaders, for each one. It’s a relay race, and the baton that gets passed is the knowledge or idea.</p> <p>In the social design process, the stages are collapsed, and happen concurrently. The same, cross disciplinary team works together to develop and prototype ideas, using that as research. Instead of learning and then making, it’s making to learn and refine. The plan emerges step by step, driven by the vision or end goal.</p> <div id="attachment_554000" style="width: 5194px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-6-Community-bank-members-with-Interfaces-Human-Nature-collection.jpg"><img class="wp-image-554000 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-6-Community-bank-members-with-Interfaces-Human-Nature-collection.jpg" alt="" width="5184" height="3456" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-6-Community-bank-members-with-Interfaces-Human-Nature-collection.jpg 5184w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-6-Community-bank-members-with-Interfaces-Human-Nature-collection-450x300.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/8-6-Community-bank-members-with-Interfaces-Human-Nature-collection-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 5184px) 100vw, 5184px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">On Bantayan Island residents learn about the finished carpet tiles that will be made from fishing nets.

They pay people to collect the discarded fishing nets that destroy marine life, connect them to a global manufacturing process and turn them into completely recycled carpet tiles.</p> <p>It’s everywhere. There’s an organization called Built for Zero that is getting to zero chronic and veteran’s homelessness. They do it by teaching cross-disciplinary teams in communities across the country to reframe and solve problems, map, facilitate and prototype.</p> <p>The architect Michael Murphy, co-founder of MASS Design Group, integrates social design into an architectural practice to create value for the whole community. They create jobs, revive traditional crafts, and even improve health outcomes by thinking about the social systems within their built environments.</p> <h3><strong>Is social design dependent on designers? Or can non-designers be integral to social design?</strong></h3> <p>Social design is absolutely dependent on designers, but the designers who step up to do it will come from many unexpected professions and places. It’s truly one of the most exciting opportunities to create the future, to get involved in the most important issues of our time, and to have what I have heard designers asking for for as long as I’ve been a designer: a seat at the table.

For the last twenty years, illustrated type has been a natural extension of his work as illustrator, designer and fine artist. From the publication of his limited-edition portfolio, Funnyfarm: The Alphabet of Mental Disorders (1998) to the most recent exhibition of Sciphabet in the Athens Science Fair last year, his commitment to social criticism has found expression in these meticulously structured typeforms.</p> <p>A phenotype (from Greek phainein, meaning ‘to show’, and typos, meaning ‘type’) is the composite of an organism’s observable characteristics and expression of its genetic code as well as the influence of environmental factors and interactions of the two. Naming this exhibition – a trilogy preoccupied with art (Artphabet), science (Sciphabet) and their fusion (Steam Punkphabet) – with a biology term seemed only fitting. Artphabet was developed for a series of SVA subway posters. Sciphabet, a steampunk alphabet, premiered as works in progress at the 9th ICTVC Conference, Les Yper Yper gallery in Thessaloniki Greece and is exhibited in Science Fairs since. Steam Punkphabet, rooted in the cyber vintage literature genre of fiction, will be showcased for the first time at this TDC exhibition as work in progress.</p> <p>See the opening exhibit and hear the designers words at TDC, November 15 from 6:30-8:30 at TDC, 347 West 36th St Room 605. Exhibition goes through January 31, 2019.</p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-@-TDC-Invite-b.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553001" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-@-TDC-Invite-b.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="962" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-@-TDC-Invite-b.jpg 700w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-@-TDC-Invite-b-327x450.jpg 327w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-@-TDC-Invite-b-437x600.jpg 437w" sizes="(max-width: 700px) 100vw, 700px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-2.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553002" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-2.jpg" alt="" width="680" height="520" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-2.jpg 680w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-2-450x344.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-2-600x459.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 680px) 100vw, 680px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-3.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553003" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-3.jpg" alt="" width="680" height="520" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-3.jpg 680w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-3-450x344.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-3-600x459.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 680px) 100vw, 680px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-4.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-553004" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-4.jpg" alt="" width="680" height="520" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-4.jpg 680w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-4-450x344.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Viktor-Koen-TDC-visuals-4-600x459.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 680px) 100vw, 680px" /></a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/illustration/machine-type-literally-phenotypes/">Machine Type.
