Rik from design studio Face has been in touch with news of the second issue of P Magazine. The publication is an international object-book designed as a collector’s edition [300 copies are available worldwide]. Edited and curated by photographers Cecy Young & Mariana Garcia and designed by Face.
Celebrating 10 years of design studio Bibliothèque, be sure to head down to Hoxton Arches in London this weekend to catch their show which features an interactive installation and pop-up book/coffee shop.
'The digital installation features a range of projects, presented on 24 wall mounted screens. Visitors are encouraged to either ‘Reset’ the screens to single projects, or alternatively ‘Randomise’ the content to create rich juxtapositions of many projects. A reinterpretation of the studio’s output to date, a reset – a celebration of the past ten years, in anticipation of the next ten.'
A few site updates over at design studio OK-RM including branding for Strelka’s 2013–14 research programme where the theme was 'Urban Routines'. As they explain;
'The programme was devoted to the studies of the most common, trivial, everyday matters focusing on four main themes: Dwelling, Offices, Retail (the different spaces and places where our everyday lives unfolds) and Сars (commuting between them). Student research, public lectures, and talks on Urban Routines constitute an attempt to figure out what the everyday life of Russian cities is made of. The graphic identity acts as a visual primer to the complex concerns of the institute. The extensive toolkit of icons can be used to create abstract/evocative communications as well as articulating precise statistical content presented during the end of year exhibition.'
