          Erik Spiekermann is one of the best-known typographers and graphic designers in the world. Not only does he represent German typeface and corporate design like no other, but his work and the companies he founded—MetaDesign, FontShop, and EdenSpiekermann—have also had an unparalleled influence on contemporary graphic design around the globe. At his newly opened letterpress workshop P98A gallery, Gestalten.tv meets this master, who has been “suffering from typomania” all his life. We learn about the beauty that benefits from constraints, the heritage of letterpress printing, and his unusual entrepreneurship principles. This video also gives you a sneak peak into Gestalten's upcoming book “Hello, I am Erik,” the first-ever visual biography of Erik Spiekermann's life and work. The book is written and designed by Johannes Erler and his office in close cooperation with Erik Spiekermann.

            This project is primarily a questioning on the relation between form and use of everyday objects in the digital era. It is a journey on the impact that the digital world can have over everyday objects. Nowadays objects become reflexive, they evolve as we use them. We are evolving from a system where form follows function to a system where form follows use. But this flexibility in the use applies only to the programmable nature of the object: and the electric-electronic part remains opposed to the tangible part, which is fixed by the matter.

              Besides developing a rather strange workflow-mélange form TVPaint to Photoshop to C4d to After Effects and the other way round or what ever, I had the opportunity to do some nice illustrations... :) ... and they lived happily ever after... p.s. if you did like it you can watch it here once more :) https://vimeo.com/72745174

                  The e-SCAPE Studio provoked students to explore a range of problems at different scales (the body, the cross cultural object, the building, the street, the motorway) in downtown Shanghai and conceive a solution as an “e-SCAPE” or new interpretation. The e-SCAPE Studio challenged participating students to seek innovative ways to address a range of problems and scales within the city. The title of the studio alluded to environmental landscapes and the notion of a “scape” or perspective on an issue and the possibility of escape. Students were encouraged to consider a response to problems of global warming, rapid urbanisation or the Global Financial Crisis and develop a solution in the form of an ‘e-scape’, or new interpretation of landscape. The potential for aspects of this scape to be permeated by the data-driven, ambient and ubiquitous digital networks spanning the city in an increasingly complex invisible matrix was also highlighted. We were interested to explore development of strategies for mapping the virtual, invisible and online dimensions of the digital city considering the potential of these emergent spaces, how they might be used, and how they intersect with the real urban landscape.
