THE PREGNANT OYSTER (SCHWANGERE AUSTER)

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Another daunting task ahead! This room holds a few people! Yesterday I was the second speaker on the first day of the Typo Berlin Conference. The building is amazing the Haus der kulturn der Welt, designed in 1957 by the American architect Hugh Stubbins Jr. as part of the Interbau exhibition. Feel very proud to have spoken in such a handsome building in the middle of a beautiful park. It reminds me of another building I am working on at the moment.

PAGE 1

The proof of my Page 1 for the book — Page 1: Great Expectations curated by GraphicDesign& — Seventy Graphic Solutions — book available now.

For my Page1 — I wanted to conduct an experiment to see how the reader/listener would understand the text if the words were arranged in columns, in which multiple words were grouped together and where all punctuation was removed. The words are listed in the order they appear, with multiples shown under the word’s first appearance. There are 278 words in this piece of text and 166 are unique. The font used is Typewriter Condensed.

Then I read the original and my version out loud. The former obviously flows as intended, while in comparison my staccato version encourages the reader to experiment with emphasis, allowing different interpretations of the piece.

I spent the weekend starting to draw the whole alphabet sparked off by my doodle sketch a couple of weeks ago. I am starting to get obsessed with it and it is distracting me!

NO AIRS & GRACES

Friday, February 18th, 2011

My poster has gone off to the printers, for my ‘No airs and graces’ talk at the Typographic Circle. I wanted to combine my obsession with stripes with my love of words.

‘No Airs and Graces’ many many moons ago (1987) I designed the book cover ‘Talking Horses’ for jeffrey Bernard (published by 4th Estate) and I attended the launch of book, on the top floor of ‘L’Escargot’. The place was full of young people and he came over to me and said ‘The thing about you Morag, you have no airs and graces’, at the time I was devastated, I thought I was a sophisticated and mysterious young woman and it was ruined in one single sentence from a person I respected. So I challenged him with a rather disappointed expression and he replied ‘It was a compliment!’

Posters will be available soon to purchase from the Typographic Circle. Printed on 120gsm Colorplan Pristine White, 120gsm from GS Smith.
