gta papers 1: architecture/machine
editorial design
zurich, 2017

setting the tone

these days academic journals have grown to bulky proportions. but does this have to mean heavyweight design? well, yes, it does, because the layout informs the hasty viewer about the serious, challenging nature of the articles. design here isn’t about glossing over or dumbing down – it’s about added attraction. the form is worthy of the content.
