    • Dean Poole on playing with words (trailer)

      “The greatest thing about design is that it's the social life of ideas," says Dean Poole, the creative director and co-founder of Alt Group, a multidisciplinary design studio in New Zealand. In his presentation at Design Indaba Conference 2014, Poole talks about some of his most celebrated work that uses words to arrest people's attention. His quirky definitions of the letters of the alphabet assign characters to each letter form. In Poole's mind, A is an "H designed by an architect", D "ate too much" and R is a "poser". The design of letters interests him as visual puns rather than their manipulation in typography. Alt Group's identity for the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki exemplifies the firm's approach of simplicity, restraint and humour. The gallery's branding demystifies the serious and complex meanings often attributed to art using a system based largely on wordplay. The identity uses an endless series of simple statements on posters, maps, publications, apparel and environmental graphics that give different perspectives on what art can be: "A geometric abstraction", "A recurring motif", "A real beauty" and "A universal truth". The statements are lined up to spell out the word "ART" in every case. Poole's recently published book "This Over That" takes the wordplay one step further. The pocket-sized book visualises phrases using the word “over” (for example, "Stay over night" and "All over it"), replacing the actual word with a horizontal line in the manner of a mathematical division symbol. The result is a series of pictograms that play with the mechanics of language. The book earned him a Bronze award at New Zealand’s Best Awards in the category for editorial and book design.
