Short description by the publishers:
30
studios by étapes on a journey to the heart of contemporary creation. These thirty portraits of designers were chosen by the editors of étapes with the goal of always valuing remarks and proposals that would enhance the power of graphic design. “Graphic design is a vibrant, visual and provocative exploration of contemporary culture” as the New York studio 2 × 4 stated this book. The proposed trip here is trans-disciplinary: illustration, typography, photography, poster, packaging, book design. Whether Copenhagen, Tokyo, Paris, New York, Hong Kong, London or Berlin, the question of creation is questioned in all directions and in all its forms. From one continent to another is liable for reminding about the designer must constantly reinvent its business. Richly illustrated throughout this book provides a picture of what today’s graphic design.

“Edgar Alan Poe’s Alone” (2012) by Beetroot

“Edgar Alan Poe’s Alone” (2012) by Beetroot

Poe’s Letters
Luminous Entities
Avoiding
Abandoning
Alone
Context transforms
Distance becomes a Frail relation
Solitude



“Edgar Alan Poe’s Alone” (2012) is Beetroot’s latest endeavor in developing new visual systems by transforming form and context.

To illustrate further the feeling of desolation and loneliness a system is made where each particle repels all others.
Letters become living entities.
The simulation finally settles when each one has maximum distance from the others within a confined space.
Words are connected together via a transparent web so that some degree of readability remains.
The poem’s structure is destroyed by it’s context.
