I wrote a short appreciation of Emigre magazine as part of the article “The Most Influential Designs of the Past 33 Years” by Jason Tselentis in HOW magazine. The issues shown with the article are from my own collection. I contributed to the magazine from 1996 to its final issue in 2005.
My essay “Fuck All” is included in the journal Modes of Criticism 1 – Critical, Uncritical, Post-critical, the initial publication of the Modes of Criticism project of editor Francisco Laranjo. The essay is a response of Michael Rock’s essay “Fuck Content,” and challenges that article’s notion that graphic design history is one of form, not content. You can read the introductory paragraphs here, and order a copy here.
My work and words are featured in The Designer as…: Author, Producer, Activist, Entrepeneur, Curator, and Collaborator: New Models for Communicating by Steven McCarthy. The new book “provides an overview of the phenomenon of design authorship and interviews many international designers who have taken on different roles as authors or producers of their own projects.” I am one of 12 design figures interviewed specifically for the book, which also discusses and presents images of my exhibition Adversary: an exhibition (of) contesting graphic design, and the News of the Whirled magazine/novel project. An additional joy of the book is its design by Martin Venezky.
