Utrecht Graduate School of Art and Design – mahKUzine – Journal of Artistic Research
The Utrecht Graduate School of Visual Art and Design (maHKU) asked us to develop a design for two issues of the school’s biannual journal of artistic research, published for an audience of both art professionals and art students. A year later we were re-commissioned to design the latest two issues.
The requirements were to maintain the basic design elements of the previous issues, namely black and white, an A4-format, so one could print it out at home, and a one text-column layout, leaving room for readers to write comments and notes in the margins. The typographic structure of the design enables this idea that readers would interact with the text, and utilize the margins as their own notebook, referencing the text when necessary.
