1. For about a year now, Brad McDougall and I have worked together at his blacksmithing studio in northern Connecticut to make many new artworks. The technical name for blacksmithing is forgings, which is to heat steel red hot and then bang artfully on the steel with manual and power hammers. Below a video by Andrei Severny and ET shows some of the new works and their lively method of production.

    "A great story beautifully told."
    Ken Carbone, Designer, Chief Creative Director, Carbone Smolan Agency

    “This [film] is about patient and dedicated teaching, about learning to look and visualize in order to design, about the importance of drawing. It is one designer’s personal experience of issues that face all designers, expressed with sympathy and encouragement, and illustrated with examples of Inge [Druckrey]’s own work and that of grateful generations of her students. There are simple phrases that give insights into complex matters, for example that letterforms are ‘memories of motion.’ Above all, it is characteristic of Inge that in this examination of basic principles the word “beautiful” is used several times.”

    Matthew Carter, type designer, MacArthur Fellow

    “This film is absolutely beautiful. I'm so impressed with it and learned so much in such a compact piece. I feel like it picked up where Helvetica left off with the subtle principles of typographical balance and some early history stemming from the human hand. Your wonderful teaching approach comes through loud and clear and stands as an inspiration and model for others including myself. This is fantastic.”

    Luke Geissbuhler, Cinematographer of Helvetica and other films

    "A great documentation of the visual values we hold dear."

    Roger Remington, Vignelli Distinguished Professor of Design, RIT

    "A fine, insightful and educational documentary. It captures Inge’s work as a designer and educator, her thinking and her SEEING, in a wonderful and most perfect way. Truly Inspirational!"

    Hans-Ulrich Allemann, Designer/Educator

  3. The basics of motion design as interpreted by the students of the "Basics of Motion Design"-class at the Hochschule für Künste (University of the Arts) in Bremen.
    In a series of short single episodes different basic principles of motion design are explained (as well as explored by the students in the process).

    Rules:
    Use the design template provided by the instructor.
    Use only the most basic functions of After Effetcs. No Effetcs. No PlugIns (though students did bend these rules at one time or another).

    Goals:
    Concentrate on getting the message across. Design using motion properties (hence the design template). Learn, what motion design is about. Ignore software-related technical issues.

    Instructor: Henning Rogge
    Students: Filippo Baraccani, Elena Fergani, Mikko Gärtner, Helene Maus, Wladimir Schwabauer
