Dear Herr Schwab: If you are so inclined, by all means - munch away. Although I seriously doubt that this is what you have in mind for yourself and your cronies. As for me - catch me if you can! I will stick to the recipes that I am collecting here - and with good solid graphic design, I might add.
I WILL NOT EAT "ZE BUGZ"
My modest response to that nest of arch villains, The World Economic Forum's, plant that we should be eating insects for protein intake.
A collector for all the things that I have done pretty much since I first got involved with computers as a creative environment, which are not part of any bigger project. Just stuff that I made purely for my own amusement whenever the fancy took me. Not that everything else I have done hasn't been for my enjoyment as well, but I guess these are even more trivial - hence the title of the collector. Some are ongoing, others have been sitting around for decades and others are somewhere in-between.
THINGS DESIGNED BY COMPANION SPECIES
This project started out as part of a tutorial to show my graphic design students how to apply a visual identity to a wide range of products. From where it took on a life of its own... The inspiration comes from Donna Haraway's concept of "companion species" in which she discusses a very special relationship between household animals, cyborgs and humans. So, in this design system 3 imaginary entities who represent these 3 companion species come together to develop 3 separate visual identities all based on the same logotype.
Flipbooks: Many of my designer colleagues do not hold with them, but I love them. So, here they are, on the page that you can reach by clicking the image above.
And another thing that I like to do is prezzis - again, something that most of my colleagues do not have a lot of patience for. And, finally I try to make an effort with my conference presentations. All of that is on that page as well.
