How do you brand a temporary project? By visually referencing that temporariness, and building in flexibility for future expansion. That’s the approach that Manual took to design brand materials for Proxy, “a temporary two-block project located in San Francisco that provides a flexible environment of food, art, culture and retail.”
As Manual explains:

Renovated shipping containers and temporary architecture form the backbone of Proxy, conceived and curated by architectural firm envelope a+d.
When commissioned to conceive a new identity for Proxy, we chose to visually reference the temporary and modular nature of the project. The resulting typographic-led identity is born out of the concept of ‘placeholder’, and employs a flexible graphic framework that will unfold across signage, printed materials and online communications.

    Out Of Print 

    Fun project creates computer-generated random headlines scrambled from news feeds which are then printed with traditional techniques and sent via Twitter:

    The invention of the printing press is the finest example of how a shift in technology can change the way we communicate. In the 21st century, digital technology has become the defining force shaping society; changing the way we live, interact and consume information.

    With the growth of digital media we are now faced with unprecedented levels of data. We find ourselves at a saturation point. By attempting to consume ever more, we end up understanding less. How do we make sense of all the information we consume and not get lost in the process? Through the use of traditional printing techniques we explore this question.

    By using live online news feeds we are building a digital application that generates seemingly random headlines; these will then be printed using a custom-built letterpress. The prints will form a growing collection exhibited as part of the installation.

    Late, but not forgotten, here are a few snapshots of my lithography prints from Friday. I am trying to experiment with a variety of different overlays to achieve the right effect, and can only hope tomorrows nexus session works out. Also working on another print tomorrow and will be laser cutting some designs all based around the theme of hand drawn type and conversations, so more photos to be posted soon.

    More printing….

    I have been back in lithography this morning, working on some pieces for a new project. I have taken inspiration from a style an amazing illustrator and friend Adrain Dutt uses in a number of his pieces.

    I love the effect the different ink over laid is giving an almost 3D effect and a lovely texture to the pieces. I have experimented with a number of different stocks, coated and non, textured and smooth. I will post some glimpses up on here later, and may put some limited prints up fr sale.

    If you want to see Adrain’s work, Head over to http://www.adraindutt.co.uk or his blog is http://adrianduttlikesdrawing.tumblr.com/
