Typograph.Journal Vol. 02


Typographic musings for curious creatives: Australia's TYPOgraph.Journal is written by designers for designers. The text consists of conversational, experimental, self-generated, personal expressions about design theory, practice and process.

The second volume investigates design rituals, constraints in design, problem solving, and visual logic to answer the question “Where do we find, and how do we feed our creative energy?” — a critical question for design practitioners who operate in create-on-demand roles. As designers are required to constantly (and consistently) produce creative outcomes of high calibre to meet client requirements, budgets and timelines. How do designers walk the fine line between thriving under the pressure versus being burnt out and creatively blocked?

Typograph.Journal Volume 02 gives insight into various approaches, exploring workplace rituals, culture and practical processes that satisfy creative urges and foster the bravery, risk and spirit required in design.

In addition to visual research and ideation, Volume 02 contains, articles, profiles, and conversations with talented creatives from many backgrounds at different stages in their careers. Featuring; Jessica Hische, Caren Florance, Matt Vergotis, Luke Lucas, Peter Rudledge, Deane Featonby, Barry Spencer and Ash Brennan.
