  • A lineal font declined in 6 styles & 844 unicodes called Diglû

    "Diglû is a design of a lineal font declined in 6 styles. It contains 440 characters + 404 pictograms developed for the analysis and mediation of archaeological finds. The pictograms have a Unicode, allowing the font to be used on all text editors. It was developed as part of a research project of the Swiss National Fund for Scientific Research and is part of the doctoral thesis of Fabienne Kilchör. The police will be available soon on Extraset.ch, and other pictograms on other themes will be developed."

    Emphase Sàrl is a graphic design agency based in Lausanne, Switzerland. Since 2010, the two founders Fabienne Kilchör and Sébastien Fasel with their team are developing a wide range of visual communication solutions. For small and large enterprises, as well as public institutions, Emphase is designing among other things books, annual reports, posters, visual identities and infographics. The team is accompanying projects from the conception stage to the publication.

    Emphases creative style is rooted in traditional Swiss design but oriented towards contemporary graphic design. Clear-cut lines, accuracy and the reduction of complexites are characteristic for the studio.Since the beginnings, Emphase was interested in the field of information design. By means of infographics, diagrams and charts complex interrelations and Big Data are simplified and mediated. Among the clients are newspapers, federal offices as well as business and science stakeholders. Those images of knowledge have the potential to uncover new knowledge and to create strong memories.

    As an innovative graphic design agency, Emphase is defining itself as a scientific design laboratory. Both Fabienne and Sébastien are lecturers at Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD) and are regularly organizing workshops at various other Swiss design schools. Since 2015 they are coordinating the Certificate of Advanced Studies programme (CAS) Data Visualization at Bern University of the Arts.

  • Isabel Zoulinaki's Process Journal - Innovation from Tradition

    "This is my personal process journal concerning the second stage research project at the Glasgow School of Art. During this design innovation research we were asked to understand and challenge existing preconceptions, models and assumptions surrounding tradition, and to develop alternative ways of representing communal associations, identities and shared working practices in the context of Scotland," says Isabel Zoulinaki.

    "The purpose of this project is to understand the relationship between tradition and innovation; lived experience and preferable futures. Another fundamental aim is to consider how design research approaches can help to reconfigure ways of being, working or living. How can resources, history and social bonds be mobilised within a framework of opportunities and challenges."

  • S Moda's stunning use of a custom made typeface by Non Format

    "Sølve is a typeface originally created for the catalogue designed for the Norwegian photographer Sølve Sundsbø’s exhibition at Shoot Gallery in Oslo" say Non Format. For their September 2017 style supplement, S Moda, the Spanish newspaper El País used this typeface boldly paired with Parachute's PF Regal Finesse, an elegant, luxurious, sexy and vibrant serif typeface which incorporates several distinct elements blended with classic forms.

    Non-Format was established in London in 2000 by Kjell Ekhorn (Norwegian) and Jon Forss (British). Together they work on a range of projects including art direction, design, illustration and custom typography for clients including Adobe, Coca-Cola, EMI, Gap, IBM, New York Times, Nike, Nokia, Rick Owens, Sony Music and a great many others. Their work has garnered many design awards including a D&AD Yellow Pencil, two Tokyo TDC Prizes and a New York ADC Gold. Several projects are also part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. A bestselling hardback monograph of their work was published in 2007. In the same year Jon relocated to the United States and, in 2009, Kjell returned to his native Norway. Despite the seven hour time difference the duo collaborate closely on every project, and thank Alexander Graham Bell, the Wright Brothers and the founders of Skype for helping to make this possible.
