This issue of ‘Graphic’ is the brainchild of the graduating class in graphic design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. According to the head of the department David Bennewith, each contribution is a response to the question, “What is education in our department?” As such, the contents, their formulation, design, and production show best what the students have learned and where their interests lie. The magazine’s diverse offerings include a font showcase of designs by former students and teachers, a selection of lyrical feedback from the summer 2017 critiques, excerpts and inspirations from the building blocks of theses, glimpses into students’ personal drawers, and much more.

For my contribution in collaboration with fellow students Manon Bachelier(FR) and Robin Brass(DE), we created a typespecimen posing as a visual hypothesis. Playing with the concepts of obfuscation in dialogue with display, we used typefaces from the depths of drawers of our colleagues at the academy and reproduced them in a variety of mediums: lasercut, wood, clay, light & shadow, reflections and recaptured them through the camera lens in the confines of a photoshoot.
