The new issue of the Type Trends lookbook series by Zetafonts is 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 — Typography in the Age of Black Swans 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.
It is a must-read for anyone interested in graphic design, typography, and its links to the social and cultural zeitgeist 😍
The counterspaces offer a unique perspective on the role of design in society, and how typography can be used to create meaning and connection in a world that is constantly changing. Whether you are a designer, a creative director, a student, or simply interested in the way design shapes our world, this book will leave you with a new appreciation for the power of typography to inspire, engage, and transform.
