TYPE TRENDS 2023
(TYPOGRAPHY IN THE AGE OF BLACK SWANS)
Zetafonts presents the new issue of the Type Trends lookbook series, titled The counterspaces (Typography in the Age of Black Swans). Curated by the Type Campus team, it is an exploration of the many contemporary counter-trends in the world of design and typography, that have arisen in response to the unpredictable events that have occurred in recent years.
The counterspaces presents the work and the thoughts of some of the most interesting and innovative creators and thinkers in the typographic field, and guides the reader in a hidden world of undefined and antagonistic areas in typographic design. These “counter-spaces” identify the hidden, emerging trends in typography and design that are responsive to the ever-changing world around us, including not only visual styles, but also business models, work philosophies, and social design considerations.
The Counterspaces features the work and the words of: Gab Bois, Victor Baltus, Beatrice Caciotti, Kevin Cantrell, Ninan Chacko (Monotype), Andy Cruz (House Industries), Jessica Deseo (The Dieline), Oded Ezer, Brandon Fretwell, Måns Grebäck, Lucas Hesse, Loukas Karnis (TypeRoom), Erik Kessels (Kesselskramer), Deborah Lynne Kugler, Tien Min Liao, Pann Lim (Rubbish Magazine), Kristie Malivindi (JKR), Nunzio Mazzaferro (Collletttivo), Raven Mo, Valerio Monopoli, Kiel D.
