Slanted #8—“2d3d. 4.” Simulating the third dimension

Posted on 13 July 2009 in:

“2d3d” deals with a step-up of dimensions—from linearity to space—and everything in between. More than ever Slanted Magazine even crosses geographical borders, presenting works from Edhv (Eindhoven), Klein Dytham architecture (Tokyo), Pixelgarten (Frankfurt), Maxime Buechi (Lausanne), Ina Saltz (New York), Erwin K. Bauer (Vienna), Sangho Park (Stuttgart), and many others. The sections “Fontlabels, Fonts & Families,” “Fontnames Illustrated,” and “Typolyrics” introduce contemporary fonts and designers from all over the world, followed by interviews with Sabrina Tibourtine, Christoph Dunst, Sipho Mabona, Gemma O’Brien and Mr. David Carson.

Besides a portrait of Buchstabenmuseum Berlin, Slanted introduces numerous 2d3d-works of professionals and students (Ebon Heath, Yulia Brodskaya, pleaseletmedesign, MWM Graphics, etc.).

The chapter introduction pages are decorated with Hubert Jocham?s headline font “NeoDepth S8,” created exclusively for this issue. Our readers can download this brand new typeface for free. As in the previous issue #7, issue #8’s cover is wrapped with a poster—the second one of a series of four. By end of the year, the aligned posters will create a sentence. “PORN” was the first word, followed now by “4”… because we believe, that after a step-up of dimensions from 2d to 3d, “4” should follow!
