Rewrite Instructions for Writing
An outcome from DesignInquiry's Rewrite in Vinalhaven, Maine in 2018. Concept by Holly Willis based on the hermit crab essay ("the borrowed form"). The publication brings together handwritten instructions on the theme of writing.
For over ten years, designers have gathered on a small island in Maine—Vinalhaven—to explore timely and critical topics identified by a smaller group of participants known as "the framers." This annual gathering by the group known as DesignInquiry emerged from a community of engaged graphic designers but has traditionally sought to be interdisciplinary, inviting participants with a range of creative and intellectual pursuits. Each annual edition takes place with rotating slate of framers and participants; the summer meetings, which have occurred on-island and off-, are intended to prompt discussion, thinking, and making in response to a provocative theme, and often (always?) find their results brought together in printed form.
Contributors for 2015's Rewrite include Nida Abdullah, Ladan Bahmani, Mary Banas, Tim Belonax, Anna Buckner, Anita Cooney, Sondra Graff, Margo Halverson, Lucinda Hitchcock, Michelle Jacques, Yoonyung (Yoon) Kim, Noya Kohavi, Emily Luce, Lisa Maione, Sandie Maxa, Charles Melcher, Mark Sanders, Soo Hyun Shin, Aggie Toppins, Petra van Noort, Holly Willis, and Mark Zurolo
