Slanted Magazine #31—Tokyo
A year ago, the Slanted team dove into Tokyo—with their friends Renna Okubo and Ian Lynam preventing them from drowning—to take an intense look at the contrasting design scene. The Japanese capital is a unique place. With its clean streets, punctual transportation and polite service at every turn, Tokyo is more than just a well-run city. It unites cultural extremes: it is a city where the futuristic meets the traditional and tranquility meets speed.

Illustrations, interviews, and essays complement the issue thematically. Slanted #31 comes with contributions by AQ, Bunny Bissoux, DAIKANYAMA TSUTAYA BOOKS, Digiki, direction Q, Jesse Freeman, Sara Gally, heiQuiti Harata, Adrian Hogan, Yuki Kameguchi, Kamimura & Co., Toshiaki Koga, Dermot Mac Cormack, Akinobu Maeda, Gui Martinez, Luis Mendo, MISAKO & ROSEN, Eiko Nagase, Nakano Design Office, Naoko Nakui, Nanook, Taro Nettleton, Toshi Omagari, Louise Rouse, Michael Scaringe, Yoshihisa Shirai, Shotype Design, snöw, so+ba, Kohei Sugiura, Sumner Stone, Fumio Tachibana, Tetsunori Tawaraya, Patrick Tsai, Typecache, Dan Vaughan, Village, Makoto Yamaki, YamanoteYamanote, Ueda Yo, and Jody Zhou.

Athens—a city with a historical importance battered by the financial crises. Listening to residents one can hear a wide range of voices from very optimistic up to dystopian. Catching this contrarian mood was the idea of photographer Daniel Rupp for this photo essay. It gives a glimpse into the daily life of a city that has had a fundamental role for Europe.

Since a few years, a new design trend seems to appear in Greece. The ancient aesthetics, history and traditions of the country serve as a source of inspiration, but are to be reinterpreted. More and more creatives are striving to show a modern Greek style and produce regional as much as possible.
This riso booklet is an excerpt from the diploma thesis “Greetings from Greece” by Xenia Fastnacht from the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe, in which she deals with the contrast between country-specific stereotypes and new creative approaches in Greece.

Athen – eine Stadt gezeichnet durch die Finanzkrise. Spricht man mit den Einwohnern, bekommt man eine große Bandbreite von optimistischen bis hin zu dystopischen Stimmen zu hören. Diese konträre Situation einzufangen, war die Idee des Fotografen Daniel Rupp für dieses Booklet.

All the designers Slanted met though talked very positively about the event, bringing back art and life to Athens, suffering from draconian cuts in culture budgets.The list of designers Slanted met with boasts everyone from legends such as Michalis Katzourakis to young, wild creatives who are creating exciting voices in their own right.

Dafi Kühne is a Swiss designer who works with analog and digital approaches to produce fresh and unique letterpress-printed posters.

Never afraid of getting his hands dirty in his creative workshop, Dafi Kühne embraces the labor involved in the entire process of creating a poster from initial idea to finished product.

HELSINKI Plakat
Dafi Kühne ist Grafiker und Buchdrucker aus Zürich & Glarus (Schweiz). Seit 2009 arbeitet er ganztägig in seinem Atelier »babyinktwice«, wo er Plakate, Einladungskarten, Broschüren und Zeitschriften entwirft und druckt. Dabei arbeitet er zwar mit traditionellen Techniken, die er aber mit sehr zeitgenössischer Grafik kombiniert und so alte Traditionen aufbricht. Für das HELSINKI Poster benutzte er verschiedene Techniken – handgeschnittenes Linoleum, traditionelle Plastik-Poster-Buchstaben, neue Holzbuchstaben mit dem Pantograph ausgeschnitten und traditionelle Metallbuchstaben –, um zeigen, was mit Design alles möglich ist.

HELSINKI Plakat
Dafi Kühne ist Grafiker und Buchdrucker aus Zürich & Glarus (Schweiz). Seit 2009 arbeitet er ganztägig in seinem Atelier »babyinktwice«, wo er Plakate, Einladungskarten, Broschüren und Zeitschriften entwirft und druckt. Dabei arbeitet er zwar mit traditionellen Techniken, die er aber mit sehr zeitgenössischer Grafik kombiniert und so alte Traditionen aufbricht. Für das HELSINKI Poster benutzte er verschiedene Techniken – handgeschnittenes Linoleum, traditionelle Plastik-Poster-Buchstaben, neue Holzbuchstaben mit dem Pantograph ausgeschnitten und traditionelle Metallbuchstaben –, um zeigen, was mit Design alles möglich ist.

Slanted #29 – Helsinki

Finland—though a small country judging by its population of 5.5 million inhabitants and population density of 18 inhabitants per square kilometer (the lowest in the EU)—boasts many superlatives: there are more saunas than cars; it has the most heavy metal bands per capita; any Finnish noun can have over 200 different forms; Finns are the most avid readers of books and newspapers globally and world leaders in the use of libraries … The list goes on forever.

In the summer of 2016 the Slanted editors embarked on their trip to Helsinki to take a close-up look at the contemporary design scene there. What they found was a rich creative community with a deeply rooted culture – people who do much more than just love design, they live it. The list of designers Slanted met with boasts everyone from legends such as Erik Bruun to young, wild creatives who are creating exciting voices in their own right. Well known figures from Helsinki’s contemporary design scene such as Jesse Auersalo, Bond Agency, Double Happiness, GRMMXI, Helsinki Type Studio, Kokoro & Moi, Kuudes, Linda Linko, Martin Martonen, N2, Tino Nyman, Prakt Design Agency, Schick Toikka, Tsto, and Werklig allowed a glimpse into their world. Not only can you find their brilliant works in the new issue, Slanted also provides a deeper look at their opinions and views through video interviews that can be watched online on our video platform for free!Illustrations, photography, interviews and essays complement the issue thematically. Slanted #29 comes with contributions by Aarikka, Agency Leroy, Aivan, Andbros, ANKI Rugs, artek, Melanie Dower, Everyday Design, Fjord, Laura Iisalo, Jalo Helsinki, Arja Karhumaa, Marianna Kellokoski, Leena Kisonen, Matilda Kivelä, Hanna Konola, Ida Kukkapuro, Riikka Laakso, Eero Lampinen, Heini Lehtinen, LUK, Ian Lynam, Dermot Mac Cormack, Sac Magique, Marika Maijala, Sanna Mander, Marimekko, Merkitys, Nide, Rami Niemi, Nikari, Plantui, Lauri Ilmari Puustjärvi, Samuli Saarinen, Enni Sahlman, Saint Vacant, Ville Savimaa, Tikari & Maininki, Tulva, and Wevolve.The booklet “Contemporary Typefaces” is a regular feature of Slanted Magazine presenting an editorial selection of recently published international high-quality typefaces.

Slanted #28 – Warsaw

In June 2016, the Slanted editors Lars Harmsen and Julia Kahl embarked on a two-week-trip to Warsaw, taking a close look on the contemporary design scene of Warsaw. They wanted to figure out what Polish design looks like today, asking how the young generation finds its place in society – in a capital which is constantly striding forward – a great opportunity and/or struggle, redefining own positions and thoughts.

Slanted met numerous designers, from old masters and legends, such as Rosław Szaybo or Mieczysław Wasilewski, to the young wild ones, such as Noviki, Type2, Jakub de Barbaro, or Edgar Bąk Studio – as well as well known figures from the contemporary design scene, such as Łukasz Dziedzic, FONTARTE, HUNCWOT, Grzegorz Laszuk, Mamastudio, Super Super, Syfon Studio, Jacek Utko, UVMW, White Cat Studio, and Zerkaj Studio.

Moreover the issue is thematically complemented by illustrations, photography, interviews and essays. It comes along with contributions by 3group, Max Cegielski, Cyber Kids on Real, Klara Czerniewska, Olga Drenda, Agata Dudek, Marta Gawin, Dirk Gebhardt, Viktoriya Grabowska, Grupa Projektor, Homework, Jakub Jezierski, Tymek Jezierski, Janek Koza, Agata Królak, KUKI, Iwona Kurz, Piotr Leśniak, Ian Lynam, Mateusz Machalski, Piotr Młodożeniec, MOONMADNESS, Negation Studio, Marta Niedbał, Ola Niepsuj,  Agata Nowicka, Kacper Pobłocki, Poważne Studio, Redkroft, Zuzanna Rogatty, Dr. Piotr Rypson, Dawid Ryski, siedemzero, Piotr Socha, StudioKxx, Studio Otwarte, Super Salon, Dr. Agata Szydłowska, Tomasz Walenta, and Rene Wawrzkiewicz.

Portugal Special Edition / Magazine + Bag + Photo Essay + Tiny Posters + Pencils

On occasion of the release of Slanted Magazine #27 – Portugal, a limited Special Edition has been released which is exclusively available in the Slanted Shop. The edition contains a screen printed tote bag, a photo essay by photographer Daniel Sommer, a set of tiny posters related to Portuguese music (University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe), and custom made pencils by Viarco, the oldest pencil factory of Portugal.
Publisher & design: Slanted PublishersRelease: May 2016Edition of 200Price: 35 Euro
 
Tote Bag – Saudade, the love that remainsSaudade is a typical word in Portuguese that claims no direct translation in English. In Portuguese, “Tenho saudades tuas” translates as “I have (feel) saudade of you” meaning “I miss you,” but carries a much stronger tone. Saudade was once described as “the love that remains” after someone is gone. Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again.

Photo Essay – Portugal
Photographer Daniel Sommer has built up his portfolio concentrating on sports and sports personality portraits. In February 2016 he accompanied the Slanted team on their trip to Portugal to capture the mood of Portugal at night. From the rough sea to the unusual appearance of common sights and wild nature – Portugal at night has a mystical aura.Photography: Daniel SommerVolume: 32 pagesSize: 29,7 x 29,7 cmLanguage: EnglishVersion: Loose print sheets with elastic bandPrint: Druckerei VoglTiny Posters – Visual SoundtrackMusic and graphics are two different kinds of media, auditory, and visual. But they always come together and one cannot think about the one without thinking about the other. Can we explain music through images only? In the seminar Tiny Posters at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe, four students have approached this subject and searched for Portuguese musicians whose work they wanted to approach visually. For every musician they printed six posters for six of their songs in various techniques such as linocut, or nyloprint. A selection of these posters can be found in this set, which was produced on the university's own printing-press “Black Betty“ in an edition of 200 copies. A visual soundtrack exclusively sampled for Slanted Portugal!
Supervisor: Juliane HohlbaumDesign: Lisa Walter, Selina Zwaller, Klara-Sophie Neubauer, Desiree KrabisFormat: 16 x 24 cmVolume: set of 8 tiny postersTechniques: linocut, photopolymer, wrapping film, riso (folder)

PAUSMETE AS MÃOS À BOCAThe grey background, reminding the viewer of stones, represents the strong rhythm of this track whereas in the foreground a more bubbly texture illustrates the soft vocals and melody. The beat starts slowly but soon expands and gets more intense. The interaction between these layers leads to the confusion and the contrariness of this poster. More and more layers homogeneously connect with each other to one big web. Even though there are no lyrics, the track creates the atmosphere of departure. It feels like everything is set in motion. Technique: linocutMUDO E SURDOThe title of this track “mudo e surd” translates to “mute and deaf.” In the beginning the question was how to illustrate the emotions and feelings one connects with this track in a poster to someone who suffers from muteness and deafness. The different rhythms of this track interlock—they are simultaneously confusing and calming, noisy and gentle, rapid and slow. This track lives from its extreme contrasts. Looking at this print one can imagine himself floating in an infinite parallel existence, where everything seems to be an optical illusion. Technique: linocut 

BLASTED MECHANISMMAKE A CHANGEThe electronic sound of this song evokes an image in one’s mind: rays of light shining in the dark. Because this song has no lyrics, the ups and downs of the melody were visualized with artistic freedom, turning the fluctuating light into a three-dimensional geometric shape, emphasized by the strong contrast of the black and white. Technique: linocutHAND FULL OF NOTHINGIn this poster the up and down swinging of the melody is visualized. Through the distortion of the song title using a hand scanner, the imperfections of the melody are emphasized. Finally, the linocut technique was used for the printing process, combining the digital process with the imperfections of the analogue world. Technique: linocut 

ANTÓNIO VARIAÇÕESERVA DANINHA ALASTRARThe cheerful Song “Erva Danish Alastrar” (engl: spreading of weed) describes the relationship between man and nature. The speaker takes up the position of nature and describes the view of a stone and a plant. Like many songs of António Variações, it is a simple situation comprise the complex vision of life. The weed as untouched plant stands for freedom and independence. The poster visualizes various elements that are all printed on a yellow background. Everything stands under the same sun, the ranking with a differentiation of values was determined by the people. Technique: photopolymerSEMPRE AUSENTE“Semipro Ausente” is a leisurely song about lost dreams asking for the meaning of life. The plaintive singing, imitated and reinforced by synthesizers in the background, forms a pleading and crying chorus. What are our aims? What is important in life? The point is not to dwell on lost thoughts, but to enjoy life. Life has a beginning and an end, and it is like a blank slate. The white space in the poster is the lifetime, everyone fills personally and in his / her own way. The viewer is reminded that life is limited and encouraged to live in the here and now. Font: Futura Bold / Technique: photopolymer 

HERÓIS DO MARBAILAIHeróis Do Mar’s song “Bailai” reflects the band’s relation to traditional Portuguese folklore and their special bond to their hometown Lisbon. The song includes melodies and instruments of Portuguese music. The distinctive beat, which is apparent throughout the tune gives the song a hasty feel. This is underlined by the consistent lines. The background mirrors the echoing chorus. What’s special is the technique used for this poster. By crumpling wrapping film a topographical pattern was created. Whilst creating the drafts the main focus lay on the sound of the music. The text was not taken into account. Technique: linocut and wrapping filmMAR ALTOMar Alto internalizes the sound of an avantgarde-pop-band. The staccato-like beat is driven through the entire song. As a result, it has the effect of being stacked up. The consistent and linear rhythm, which is apparent throughout the tune, is represented by the geometric figures. The drawn-out and melancholy vocals, reminding us of a Portuguese fado, provide a strong contrast to the beat. Technique: linocut

Pencils – Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades.
The national poet Luís Vaz de Camões (1524–1580) once said these words, which can be translated to “Times change, wills change.” Change is visible all over the country, and only because of the strong will of the Portuguese, and the boundless will of José Vieira  owner of the oldest pencil factory Portugal’s, places like Viarco are still alive. They manufactured these wonderful pencils for the special edition and with this share their approach and heritage with the Slanted readers worldwide.
Get an insight look into the oldest factory of Portugal online and in Slanted Magazine #27 – Portugal, p. 61–73. 

Anlässlich der Veröffentlichung des Slanted Magazins #27 – Portugal, erscheint eine limitierte Sonderedition, die exklusiv im Slanted Shop erhältlich ist. Die Edition beinhaltet eine von Hand gesiebdruckte Stofftasche, einen fotografischen Essay vom Fotografen Daniel Sommer, ein »visueller Soundtrack« in Form eines Mini-Poster-Sets, welches auf portugiesischer Musik basiert (Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe) und speziell für Slanted angefertigte Bleistifte von Viarco, der ältesten Bleistiftfabriks Portugals.

Stofftasche – Saudade, the love that remainsSaudade ist ein typisches Wort im Portugiesischen und hat keine direkte Übersetzung im Deutschen. 
»Tenho saudades tuas« aus dem Portugiesischen wird übersetzt als »Ich habe das Gefühl von Saudade für Dich« und bedeutet »Ich vermisse Dich«, aber mit einem viel stärkeren Klang. Saudade wurde einst beschrieben als “die Liebe, die bleibt”, nachdem jemand fortgegangen ist. Saudade ist eine Erinnerung an Gefühle, Erfahrungen, Orten oder Ereignissen, die einst Aufregung, Vergnügen und Wohlbefinden brachten und nun diese Empfindungen wieder auslösen und jemanden lebendig machen.

Photo Essay – Portugal
Das Portfolio des Fotografens Daniel Sommer konzentriert sich auf Sportmotive und Portraits von Sportlern. Im Februar 2016 begleitete er das Slanted-Team auf Redaktionsreise durch Portugal, um die nächtliche Atmosphäre Portugals mit seiner Kamera einzufangen. Vom rauen Meer über das ungewöhnliche Aussehen bekannter Sehenswürdigkeiten und die wilde Natur – Portugal besitzt eine mystische Aura bei Nacht.

Tiny Posters – Visueller Soundtrack
Musik und Grafik sind eigentlich zwei recht unterschiedliche Medien, das eine auditiv, das andere visuell. Doch sie treffen immer wieder aufeinander und sind kaum auseinander zu denken. Doch kann man Musik nur durch Bilder erklären? Im Seminar »Tiny Posters« an der Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe haben sich vier Studentinnen diesem Thema genähert. Parallel zur Slanted Ausgabe Portugal suchten sie nach portugiesischen Musikern, deren Arbeit sie sich visuell nähern wollten. So entstanden zu jedem Musiker 6 Poster zu 6 seiner Lieder in verschiedenen Hochdrucktechniken. Eine Auswahl der Poster finden sich in diesem Set, welches auf der hochschuleigenen Hochdruckpresse »Black Betty« produziert wurde. Der Soundtrack zur Slanted Ausgabe.
Bleistifte – Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades.
Der Nationalpoet Luís Vaz de Camões (1524–1580) sagte einst diese Worte, die übersetzt »Zeiten ändern sich, der Wille ändert sich« heißen. Veränderungen sind im ganzen Land sichtbar – oft wegen des starken Willens eines Einzelnen, wie beispielsweise José Vieira, Besitzer der ältesten Bleistiftfabriks Portugals, der Orte wie Viarco am Leben hält. Viarco produzierte diese Bleistifte für Slanted, und transportiert damit eine Haltung und ein Erbe über die Landesgrenzen hinaus.
Einblicke in die älteste Bleistiftfabrik Portugals gibt es online und im Slanted Magazin #27 – Portugal, Seite 69–71.

BLASTED MECHANISMMAKE A CHANGEThe electronic sound of this song evokes an image in one’s mind: rays of light shining in the dark. Because this song has no lyrics, the ups and downs of the melody were visualized with artistic freedom, turning the fluctuating light into a three-dimensional geometric shape, emphasized by the strong contrast of the black and white. Technique: linocutHAND FULL OF NOTHINGIn this poster the up and down swinging of the melody is visualized. Through the distortion of the song title using a hand scanner, the imperfections of the melody are emphasized. Finally, the linocut technique was used for the printing process, combining the digital process with the imperfections of the analogue world. Technique: linocut 

ANTÓNIO VARIAÇÕESERVA DANINHA ALASTRARThe cheerful Song “Erva Danish Alastrar” (engl: spreading of weed) describes the relationship between man and nature. The speaker takes up the position of nature and describes the view of a stone and a plant. Like many songs of António Variações, it is a simple situation comprise the complex vision of life. The weed as untouched plant stands for freedom and independence. The poster visualizes various elements that are all printed on a yellow background. Everything stands under the same sun, the ranking with a differentiation of values was determined by the people. Technique: photopolymerSEMPRE AUSENTE“Semipro Ausente” is a leisurely song about lost dreams asking for the meaning of life. The plaintive singing, imitated and reinforced by synthesizers in the background, forms a pleading and crying chorus. What are our aims? What is important in life? The point is not to dwell on lost thoughts, but to enjoy life. Life has a beginning and an end, and it is like a blank slate. The white space in the poster is the lifetime, everyone fills personally and in his / her own way. The viewer is reminded that life is limited and encouraged to live in the here and now. Font: Futura Bold / Technique: photopolymer 

HERÓIS DO MARBAILAIHeróis Do Mar’s song “Bailai” reflects the band’s relation to traditional Portuguese folklore and their special bond to their hometown Lisbon. The song includes melodies and instruments of Portuguese music. The distinctive beat, which is apparent throughout the tune gives the song a hasty feel. This is underlined by the consistent lines. The background mirrors the echoing chorus. What’s special is the technique used for this poster. By crumpling wrapping film a topographical pattern was created. Whilst creating the drafts the main focus lay on the sound of the music. The text was not taken into account. Technique: linocut and wrapping filmMAR ALTOMar Alto internalizes the sound of an avantgarde-pop-band. The staccato-like beat is driven through the entire song. As a result, it has the effect of being stacked up. The consistent and linear rhythm, which is apparent throughout the tune, is represented by the geometric figures. The drawn-out and melancholy vocals, reminding us of a Portuguese fado, provide a strong contrast to the beat. Technique: linocut

Pencils – Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades.
The national poet Luís Vaz de Camões (1524–1580) once said these words, which can be translated to “Times change, wills change.” Change is visible all over the country, and only because of the strong will of the Portuguese, and the boundless will of José Vieira  owner of the oldest pencil factory Portugal’s, places like Viarco are still alive. They manufactured these wonderful pencils for the special edition and with this share their approach and heritage with the Slanted readers worldwide.

Stofftasche – Saudade, the love that remains
Saudade ist ein typisches Wort im Portugiesischen und hat keine direkte Übersetzung im Deutschen. »Tenho saudades tuas« aus dem Portugiesischen wird übersetzt als »Ich habe das Gefühl von Saudade für Dich« und bedeutet »Ich vermisse Dich«, aber mit einem viel stärkeren Klang. Saudade wurde einst beschrieben als “die Liebe, die bleibt”, nachdem jemand fortgegangen ist. Saudade ist eine Erinnerung an Gefühle, Erfahrungen, Orten oder Ereignissen, die einst Aufregung, Vergnügen und Wohlbefinden brachten und nun diese Empfindungen wieder auslösen und jemanden lebendig machen.

Photo Essay – Portugal
Das Portfolio des Fotografens Daniel Sommer konzentriert sich auf Sportmotive und Portraits von Sportlern. Im Februar 2016 begleitete er das Slanted-Team auf Redaktionsreise durch Portugal, um die nächtliche Atmosphäre Portugals mit seiner Kamera einzufangen. Vom rauen Meer über das ungewöhnliche Aussehen bekannter Sehenswürdigkeiten und die wilde Natur – Portugal besitzt eine mystische Aura bei Nacht.

Tiny Posters – Visueller Soundtrack
Musik und Grafik sind eigentlich zwei recht unterschiedliche Medien, das eine auditiv, das andere visuell. Doch sie treffen immer wieder aufeinander und sind kaum auseinander zu denken. Doch kann man Musik nur durch Bilder erklären? Im Seminar »Tiny Posters« an der Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe haben sich vier Studentinnen diesem Thema genähert. Parallel zur Slanted Ausgabe Portugal suchten sie nach portugiesischen Musikern, deren Arbeit sie sich visuell nähern wollten. So entstanden zu jedem Musiker 6 Poster zu 6 seiner Lieder in verschiedenen Hochdrucktechniken. Eine Auswahl der Poster finden sich in diesem Set, welches auf der hochschuleigenen Hochdruckpresse »Black Betty« produziert wurde. Der Soundtrack zur Slanted Ausgabe.
Bleistifte – Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades.
Der Nationalpoet Luís Vaz de Camões (1524–1580) sagte einst diese Worte, die übersetzt »Zeiten ändern sich, der Wille ändert sich« heißen. Veränderungen sind im ganzen Land sichtbar – oft wegen des starken Willens eines Einzelnen, wie beispielsweise José Vieira, Besitzer der ältesten Bleistiftfabriks Portugals, der Orte wie Viarco am Leben hält. Viarco produzierte diese Bleistifte für Slanted, und transportiert damit eine Haltung und ein Erbe über die Landesgrenzen hinaus.
Einblicke in die älteste Bleistiftfabrik Portugals gibt es online und im Slanted Magazin #27 – Portugal, Seite 69–71.

Slanted #27 – Portugal

Women with baskets full of fish belong to old postcard clichés back then. The cosmopolitan Lisbon is one of the last Western European capitals awakening from its deep slumber. In this 3 million metropole an upraising age group resists stereotypes of battered monuments and picturesque paved alleys and looks nervously at the future with a steady attempt to catch up lost time.

Other Portuguese cities pass through a similar renaissance. Slanted’s journey took them from Lisbon to Porto with a stop in Coimbra, visiting all in all 27 studios. Some people said that Lisbon was the woman while Porto was the man. The first one more smooth and emotional while the northern one is more kind of direct and rational. For both of them, old and new seem to clash with tradition and avant-garde.

Historic factories such as Viúva Lamego (tiles) and Viarco (pencils) proved that they were able to redefine themselves without losing their souls. Same goes for the new energetic generation of designers that grew up with the financial crisis and unemployment: time has come to redefine the dramatic change of their country, influencing all aspects of cultural life.

The issue is thematically complemented by illustrations, photography, interviews and essays.
