Project Description

The new issue deals with the loud and the silent, the eye-catching and the inconspicuous. BOLD is the opposite of despondent. In typography it is a popular method of accentuation. LIGHT is the opposite of noisy and bigmouthed. For this theme of contrasts we initially had more loud and bold fonts, works and pictures in mind than quiet, restrained ones. We are impressed of a time – striking and epic in its occurrences – which rushes past and carries us off. The soft overtones only get little attention at this rapid speed.

So, how can we pause, set the LIGHT against the BOLD? The fluid, cinematic moment of presentation has an exceptional meaning for us also in this issue. We are bothered about a linear concept of narration. The rhythmic comparison encourages to stay and immerse. Creative decisions and the use of typography for this compilation were stretched far to specific borders, to underline the topic and to work out the character of the two extremes. This precipitates also in the production: By the use of different, metallic Chromolux papers and a two-colored finishing, issue #16 appears with six different covers. Furthermore a haptic surprise awaits the reader in the inner part.
