Sans Sans Type design
Sans Sans is an adapted typeface that addresses the issue of misinformation in social media. This project seeks to challenge passive consumption, provoking individuals to actively consider the accuracy and entirety of the information they consume and share online. By removing the ‘information’ of the letterforms, disrupting and altering the format in which the information is delivered, the mode of transmission becomes the concept.
Somewhere in Between
With Thomas Ive
Somewhere in Between is a photo essay celebrating our fundamental connections to the natural world. Produced over the winter lockdown months, we used props to mimic the elements to create a surreal tone and atmosphere. We photographed four instances of summer nostalgia in winter; barefeet in sand, a patch of blue sky, sitting on a grassy stretch, and a beam of sunlight. Having researched the scientific concept of biomimicry, which uses design inspired by nature, we took this theme as a visual cue for our photo explorations. We sought to make this concept more accessible through a visual narrative. This photo essay provides an alternative view of the habitats we mimic. Somewhere in Between draws on our desire to create lived experiences that have passed.
