Typographic layout and branding

Complete branding, design, and typographic layout for a conference devoted to the critical analysis and artistic explorations of e-waste. 

Approach

Catalog intentionally disregards traditional grid systems to embrace the chaotic energy borrowed from imagery of piles of e-waste through the asymmetrical stacking of typography and images. Glitches created from imagery of the conference location— Lisbon, Portugal— are used throughout the project as a texture.

The mobile application is designed to promote a participatory art project entitled “First Known”. Live views of the project can be seen in the app and projected in the gallery throughout the weekend. Conference attendees are invited to contribute an image to the piece using an email address. When a user submits their email the system scrapes Google Images and randomly selects one associated image. It is then added to the project anonymously. As users add new images the piece transforms in color, texture, and scale.
