Nicola Carter and Luise Vormittag who founded the multidisciplinary art and design collective Container dreamed up so many playful concepts and creations across a multitude of 2D and 3D platforms while having lots of fun, that it was only a question of time when they'd back up their dream team with more like-minded artists to have even more fun. So that is what they did, and now as ContainerPLUS, we experience the full force of Luise Vormittag, Anna Fulmine, Victoria Sharokh, Patricia Niven and Nicola Carter, combining their skills as illustrators, designers, photographers, actors, typographers and then some. The creative quintet has designed the cover of Gestalten's recent release Playful Type: Ephemeral Lettering and Illustrative Fonts. If you want to find out where their laughter comes from and why even Zaha Hadid works with them, then watch the podcast feature we’ve produced on them in London during London Design Week 2008.
